If there is one teeny, tiny bright spot to the recent heroin overdose of Jon Bon Jovi‘s daughter Stephanie, it’s that at least she has Jon Bon Jovi for a dad. The man seems way, way, way more down-to-earth and normal than he has any right being. “What I do for a living seems glitzy and glamorous but if you don’t take it too seriously it’s a great way to make a living,” Bon Jovi told L.A. Fox 11’s Courtney Fiel when asked about last week’s incident. “And then life goes on. Things happen.” See? That is a textbook Good Dad Response to a horrible crisis. Could…could Bon Jovi possibly write an actual textbook? It’s too late for the holiday season, but maybe for a summer read…?
As you might recall, Stephanie was arrested following her alleged overdose in a dorm at Hamilton College; the charges were later dropped after it was found that Stephanie had less than 8 ounces of heroin in her possession. Drug charges were also dropped against fellow student Ian Grant. Concludes Bon Jovi, “This tragedy was something that I had to face too so we’ll get through it. And people’s warm wishes for my family and I have been really reassuring. So we’re good.” Aaaaaand we are tearing up at a Jon Bon Jovi interview. We know Thanksgiving is going to be super awkward this yeah, Stef, but we think you are in the best possible hands.
