Billy Joel: Uptown Girl Worried About His Boozin’
Christie Brinkley may not be part of Billy Joel’s romantic life any longer, but she’s still fretting about his alleged booze binges.
Brinkley, who split from the rocker in 1994, is said to be rallying the troops to stage an intervention for Billy, who’s done two stints in rehab for an alcohol problem that he’s spoken openly about. Though he’s supposedly clean and sober these days, snitches say he’s been back-sliding.
A source tells the “National Enquirer”, “Christie knows Billy, and when he’s bored he turns to drinking. She can’t find one person who is willing to stand up with her and stage an intervention. [Oldest daughter] Alexis believes Christie may be well-meaning, but thinks she’s being a control freak and that Billy can handle his drinking now, and Alexa doesn’t want to confront her dad, either.”
