Jon Bon Jovi Confident Daughter Will Be OK
Jon Bon Jovi says that his 19-year-old daughter Stephanie is doing great after last month's arrest following her heroin overdose. Bon Jovi spoke about raising Stephanie, against whom all charges have all been dropped, telling The Associated Press, "I didn't have any sisters. We bring home this girl the first day. Now what? Where's the manual? There was no manual. So you bring her up the best you can, you surround her with hugs and kisses and know that she may eventually fall down. . . I'm shocked as much as the next parent with this situation and had no idea. But then you surround them with best help and love and move on, and that's where we're at with it. Steph is a great kid. . .Cool school, Hamilton College up in Clinton, New York."
He went on to say, "Everything about it is idyllic. She was doing great. Great GPA. Then a sudden and steep decline. Hopefully, we caught it when we did and that's the end of it. But who knew? I've got three more (children) to come (grow up)."
