Billy Joel Serenades Ex-Wife at His Concert

At his most recent concert in New York City, Billy Joel seemed a bit reminiscent of his days spent with former wife Christie Brinkley. At one point, the singer serenaded Brinkley with the hit song “Uptown Girl,” which he wrote for her in 1983. Christie, who sat in the front row, beamed back the entire time.

The couple married in 1985 and divorced in 1994, having only one child, Alexa Ray, before they split.While the marriage didn’t last very long, the couple still remains friends to this day. Brinkley even Instagrammed a photo of herself at the concert, captioning the photo: “He's still got it! #msg #franchise #nationaltreasure”

Despite the divorce, it’s great to see these two keep their egos in check for the sake of their family. They seem to truly respect one another and manage to keep any ill feelings at bay – something that is unusual for Hollywood!

What do you think of Billy Joel serenading Christie Brinkley? Cute or get over it?
