We love a hard-partying juicy story from the past, and this one made our ears prick up like Legolas from LOTR. The fact that Jon Bon Jovi dated Diane Lane back in 1985 totally skipped our pop culture radar. In our defense, we were two years old at the time.
All the dirty deets are in Bon Jovi‘s ex tour manager, Rich Bozzet‘s book, originally titled, “Sex, Drugs and Bon Jovi“. So Rich… what’s the book about, huh? His story is that Jon and Diane were like this tight and loving it up, but unfortunately she was also getting this tight with the band’s guitarist, Richie Sambora. An excerpt reads, “The very thing that made Jon feel so passionate toward Diane Lane in the first place ended up being the reason for their sudden, unceremonious breakup.”
Another passages spells it out: “Diane was young and wild and loved to party. But she loved to party so much that Jon caught her partying with Richie Sambora. That wasn’t a good day for Jon’s relationship with Diane, to say nothing of Jon-Richie relations.” So as we know, Jon ended up going back to his old flame Dorothea Hurley, and they got married in 1989, while Diane eventually ended up with Josh Brolin.
But what we want to know is, “…caught her partying with…” means what exactly? Taking the book’s title into consideration it could mean a lot, so maybe we’ll just leave “partying” in quotation marks and let our imagination run free.
