Just a month ago, Billy Joel split from third wife Katie Lee Joel after nearly five years of marriage. Not one to mourn his failed relationship for long, Billy has already hooked up with a new lady, former The Young and the Restless star Alex Donnelly.
According to Page Six, the couple met backstage at a recent concert of his in Washington, DC. A source said, "The two hit it off immediately." Apparently since the meeting, Donnelly has been boating and riding motorcycles with Joel at his house in Sag Harbor.
Kudos to Billy for moving on. A friend told the New York Daily News after Billy and Katie split that the age difference was to blame (after all, he's 60; she's 27).
They grew apart. She is very career-oriented. She loves going out. She loves the city. When Billy isn't touring, he'd rather be on Long Island with his motorcycles and boats. Sounds like Donnelly's 49 years of age may be a better fit for Joel's relaxed lifestyle.
