Jon Bon Jovi Speaks About Daughter's Overdose

Jon Bon Jovi spoke with a TV news reporter about his daughter's heroin overdose and drug arrest earlier this month.

Fox TV's Los Angeles affiliate's entertainment reporter Courtney Friel asked Bon Jovi about the incident and he responded: "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 said. "And then life goes on. Things happen."

He added, "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"

TMZ reported that Bon Jovi's 19-year-old daughter Stephanie Rose Bongiovi was arrested at her college in Upstate New York on November 14th after allegedly overdosing on heroin. The next day, Oneida County District Attorney's Office told TMZ that they were dismissing all criminal charges about Bongiovi. You can watch the video of Jon's interview here.
