Jon Bon Jovi Says He Had No Idea about Daughter’s Drug Problems
According to an article in People Magazine, Jersey native and rock icon Jon Bon Jovi, says that he had no idea that his daughter had an issue with drugs. Even though Jon and his family are getting passed the November 14th incident in which Bon Jovi’s oldest child, Stephanie Rose Bon Giovi, had allegedly OD’d on heroin.
Fortunately, Stephanie is ok but her famous dad says that he is still surprised that the incident actually happened.
“I’m shocked as much as the next parent with this situation and had no idea,” Bon Jovi explains. “Steph is a great kid. Great GPA. Cool school … everything about it is idyllic. She was doing great, then a sudden and steep decline.”
Any parent can sympathize with the fact that no one ever wants to see their child in danger, more or less, succumbing to the dangers of drugs and alcohol. It is every parent’s worst nightmare, regardless of who you are, asking after the fact, ‘how could this happen to my child ?’
Here is Bon Jovi speaking about the incident with his daughter Stephanie:
Jon Bon Jovi has also been actively visiting towns across New Jersey hardest hit by Superstorm Sandy and raising money for the victims. He is also planning a return to the stage this summer with the band Bon Jovi on the “Because We Can” World Tour.
