Jon Bon Jovi: Daughter's overdose a tragedy

Jon Bon Jovi

Jon Bon Jovi and family are powering through the painful shock of his daughter Stephanie Rose Bongiovi's heroin overdose.

The 50-year-old rocker's eldest child Stephanie Rose was discovered catatonic in her Hamilton College dorm room last week.

Stephanie, 19, was rushed to hospital and was subsequently released on Thursday.

She and fellow university student Ian Grant, 21, faced three counts of drug possession for heroin and marijuana, but the charges were dismissed due to New York State's Good Samaritan 911 law.

Jon confesses that the past week has been extremely rough to get through.

"This tragedy was something that I had to face too so we'll get through it," he revealed during an interview with Fox 11 TV station in Los Angeles.

"People's warm wishes for my family and I have been really reassuring. So, we're good."

Jon has four children, Stephanie and three sons, with his wife Dorothea Hurley.
