[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Alexa Ray Joel[/lastfm], the daughter of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Billy Joel[/lastfm], has broke her silence about her suicide attempt last year. Joel claims she didn’t really want to kill herself, but was in a bad place and didn’t know what to do.
“I have a flair for the dramatic. I got caught up in my own head. It was a panic. I didn’t want to die. I just didn’t want to feel what I was feeling at that moment anymore,” she told the New York Post.
The trouble in her life stemmed from a breakup with her boyfriend, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jimmy Riot[/lastfm]. Alexa has said that she is no longer depressed and has moved on from the troubling event.
“I work on myself every day,” she said. “I’m trying to rearrange my life in a way to feel happy and fulfilled. I’m in a great place this year, where you start accepting yourself.”
