Jon Bon Jovi on Daughter’s Heroin Overdose: ‘Worst Phone Call Ever’ (VIDEO)


By Daniel Gates



Jon Bon Jovi appeared on Katie Couric’s talk show on Friday, and he opened up about his daughter Stephanie’s frightening heroin overdose at college last fall.


It was “the worst phone call ever,” said the rocker.

Bon Jovi assured Couric and the studio audience that Stephanie is now “doing great,” but admitted that the incident served to alert him to a widespread recreational drug culture he didn’t know existed.

“That problem is much more prevalent than I knew,” he told Couric, explaining, “I cannot get over how many people I have met” who shared similar stories about their own children.
