Bon Jovi daughter in overdose arrest
Jon Bon Jovi
The eldest daughter of Jon Bon Jovi has been charged with drugs offences after having been found “unresponsive” in her college dormitory.
Stephania Bongiovi, 19, was discovered after police were called to Hamilton College, a private liberal arts establishment in New York.
TMZ reports that medics attended to her and took her to hospital, where she’s expected to make a full recovery.
But cops charged her after she was diagnosed with a heroin overdose, and small quantities of the drug along with marijuana were found on the premises. A 21-year-old was also charged. Both will attend court at a later date.
Stephanie is one of Bon Jovi’s four kids.
In 2007 the singer admitted he’d been a marijuana dealer in his younger years, saying: “I did the drug thing very young, and wised up very young too. I was into drugs a little too much.”
He added: “I’ve never been a drug guy – I always felt I didn’t have the mental stability.”
Last year Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora went to rehab to deal with addiction issues, during which time he said none of his bandmates visited him.
