Billy Joel's Daughter Talks Divorce

Billy Joel announced yesterday that he will be divorcing his wife Katie Lee Joel, and his first wife and their daughter are already weighing in on the news. “He was the first person that told me," his daughter, Alexa Ray Joel, tells Ok! "Being who he is, he can’t just trust everybody and you know, I like knowing that my dad can talk to me in the same way that I come to him... I’m just supporting him right now.” And his first wife, Christie Brinkley, tells Extra, ““I’m very sad that this has happened and I wish them both happiness... he’s a wonderful father to Alexa. We’ve remained friends. We’ve been friends for many, many years, so obviously I’m very sad that this has happened and I wish them both happiness."
