Alexa Ray Joel Collapses on Stage
Scaring both herself and her fans, Alexa Ray Joel collapsed on stage during her concert in New York on Saturday (April 12).
The daughter of Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley was performing the last show during her two-week stint at Cafe Carlyle when she dropped two songs into the gig.
On Monday, her rep divulged that she'd been diagnosed with vasovagal syncope, a drop in heart rate and blood pressure that caused a decrease in blood to her brain.
Assuring fans, Alexa stated, "I was excited and determined to fulfill my final performance and I really wanted to end my run with a bang. But this was not what I had in mind and [I] hope I have the opportunity to make it up to the wonderful audience very soon."
