JON BON JOVI HIS DAUGHTER'S DRUG CRISIS
It's every parent's nightmare: At 1:51 a.m. on Nov. 14, police and an ambulance arrived at the Central New York dorm room of rocker Jon Bon Jovi's daughter Stephanie Bongiovi, 19, who was unconscious due to a suspected heroin overdose. The news came as a shock to those who know the Hamilton College sophomore and her family. "She's so friendly and very low-key. I never thought she was on [hard drugs] or anything," a classmate tells Scoop, adding that Stephanie has a reputation on campus for being down-to-earth. Hours after the incident, Bongiovi and senior Ian S. Grant, 21, were charged with criminal drug possession, but the charges were dropped the following day due to a law protecting people who seek help for someone experiencing an overdose. (This wasn't Grant's first brush with the law: Police records show he was arrested in Middletown, N.J., in October, also for drug possession.) While one of Bongiovi's former classmates says she drank alcohol as a high schooler, and New York's Daily News
reported she was a hard partier, a friend of the rocker's says Jon and his wife, Dorothea, both 50, "had no idea she was doing heroin, or she would have been in rehab months ago." Whether Bongiovi will return to Hamilton is unclear, but her dad isn't canceling a Dec. 5 benefit concert for the school. Sources say both parents will do whatever it takes to help her. "Their love for their kids and dedication to give them a happy and healthy home life has always been the most important thing," a longtime family friend tells Scoop. "Stephanie is doing fine and they will get through this."
