Jon Bon Jovi has kept quiet in the aftermath of his daughter’s heroin overdose, but no longer.
Stephanie Rose Bongiovi, 19, was found unconscious at Hamilton College after allegedly taking heroin and, though she was arrested at the time, charges were later dropped. Bon Jovi, who has four children with wife Dorothea Hurley, says that this is a sad circumstance they are getting through as a family.
“What I do for a living seems glitzy and glamorous but if you don’t take it too seriously it’s a great way to make a living,” he tells Fox 11. “And then life goes on. Things happen.”
He continues, “This tragedy was something that I had to face too so we’ll get through it. And people’s warm wishes for my family and I have been really reassuring. So, we’re good.”
