The 19-year-old daughter of rock star Jon Bon Jovi is in hospital after overdosing on heroin in a dormitory at her college in New York, authorities said.

Town of Kirkland Police said an ambulance was sent to Hamilton College after a report that a female had apparently overdosed on heroin.

Investigator Peter Cania said Stephanie Bongiovi, of Red Bank, New Jersey, is recovering at a hospital he declined to name.

Police said Ms Bongiovi and 21-year-old Ian Grant, also of Red Bank, have been charged with drug possession. Both were issued with tickets and ordered to appear in court at a later date. The musician's representative was not available for comment.

Bon Jovi is scheduled to perform at a benefit concert for Hamilton in Times Square on December 5.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

Getting paid to exercise your imagination will lift your spirits. By the time you finish this assignment, you may be in better condition to pursue your primary goal. A brilliant idea for operating on a shoestring budget will come. At that point, nothing will stand between you and success. Stay calm and take things one step at a time.More
