Jon Bon Jovi’s 19-year-old daughter OD’d on heroin yesterday. This makes me feel really bad for their family, because Bon Jovi is a real good guy (he was here in Philly the other day, breaking ground on low-income housing sponsored by his foundation). The man’s been working his tail off, getting food to the workers and families displaced in Hurricane Sandy. He really does believe in giving back.
So it’s not as if anyone’s family ever deserves to have a kid in trouble — and who knows? Sometimes having a parent who’s out doing good things is part of the problem — but when I heard this on the news yesterday, I said, “Oh no!” and meant it. He’s good people.
Hope it all turns out for the best.
