Jon Bon Jovi’s Daughter Allegedly Overdosed on Heroin


TMZ has reported that Jon Bon Jovi’s 19-year-old daughter, Stephanie Rose Bongiovi of Red Bank, N.J., allegedly overdosed in her Hamilton College dorm room in Kirkland, N.Y. this morning.

In addition to drug paraphernalia and marijuana, Kirkland, N.Y. Police say a drug task force also found a “small amount” of heroin next to the superstar’s unresponsive daughter.

According to The Press-Enterprise, Kirkland Police investigator, Peter Cania said Stephanie was taken to an undisclosed hospital to recover. She will be appearing in court at a later date where she’ll face three misdemeanor charges: possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and criminally using drug paraphernalia. She has since been released from custody.

Additionally, the source says that 21-year-old Ian Grant, another resident of Red Bank, N.J. as well as a Hamilton College student, was also arrested when police responded to the scene.

We wish Stephanie a speedy recovery from drugs and hope she’s able to sort out her drug problems like her father was able to.

“I did the drug thing very young and wised up very young too, because I was into drugs a little too much,” Bon Jovi told People Magazine in 2007. “I’ve never been a drug guy. I’ve always felt I didn’t have the mental stability to handle drugs.”

Bon Jovi is still set to perform a benefit concert for Hamilton College in Times Square on December 5. Stephanie is his only daughter and the oldest of his four kids.
