Marriage To Billy Joel
Alexis Roderick and Billy Joel met in 2009. According to reports, they met at a restaurant in Huntington, a town located in Long Island, New York and took an immediate interest in each other. They soon started dating but made sure their romantic affair was very private.
The couple dated for about 6 six years from 2009 to 2015 before they finally tied the knot. The wedding which held on July 15, 2015, at Billy’s magnificent estate in Long Island, took many people by surprise because of the privacy of the couple’s relationship.
