Jon Bon Jovi Speaks Out About Daughter’s Heroin Overdose
'Life goes on. Things happen,' rocker tells L.A. TV station
A week after his daughter Stephanie was arrested in her college dorm following a heroin overdose, Jon Bon Jovi has spoken out about the incident. “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. And then life goes on. Things happen,” Bon Jovi told Los Angeles’ FOX 11. “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.”
Stephanie Bongiovi surived the overdose, and charges against her were subsequently dropped.
