Thats horrible. I used to live in a neighboring town where he currently lives. He is an upstanding guy. He donates tons of time and money to various area schools music programs, writing programs, environment causes and youth groups. He is very accessible to his fans, not at all stand-offish. Seriously, there is not one bad thing anyone can say about him.

Bon Jovi has a modest restaurant in New Jersey where one pays what one can - it's designed for low income and poor people.
Also during the recent destruction causes by hurricane Sandy which destroyed miles and miles of Jersey Shore and destroyed houses on the shore plus many houses inland...
he worked to prepare food and sandwiches (actually helped in the preparation, and arranging for the food)
He also provides shelters and housing for poverty stricken on the east coast - in Philadelphia specifically.

Heroin is more common than you might think among priveleged suburban kids. It starts with prescription drugs like oxycontin and when they can't score thhose heroin is the next best thing they can get their hands on. Huge substance abuse problem.

[quote] he seemed to try and raise his kids away from the spotlight
That makes little difference. It depends on how you were raised. Maybe it's that battleaxe of a wife of his. I've heard enough about her and their supposed "happy" marriage to make me wonder why he hasn't OD'd and checked out to get away from her.
Sorry about the kid. And she's not beautiful at all but when she's fixed up she's interesting looking.

R35 you sound like my grandmother. Herion is big with teens and young adults, especially overprivleged ones. She's not some desperate junkie shooting up in a flop house. Most kids take it orally or snort it. Not all users are addicted. It is of course highly addictive but many just use it recreationally.

I know this gossip is a bit OT, (and it'll probably sound very 'Fiona-ish') but at least until she (Stephanie) was about 14 her parents (mostly her father) worked pretty hard to give the kids as stable a family life as they could. They weren't like some celeb parents - having nannies raising their kids, and stopping by to say hi and to make sure the kids recognized them as their parents.
My sister nannied for them for 13 years. She said they were both good parents, him a lot more than her. She thought because he had to be gone a lot he overcompensated when he was home. But he would spend several hours every day he could be home with the kids. He would always ask questions about how the kids were doing, and talked with her about opinions on child care and child raising often.
She said that they didn't always have a good relationship. I guess Dorothea has a crazy/mean streak a mile wide and would take out what ever her problems were on Jon almost the minute he got home. She said that Dorothea knew all of the things he didn't have a lot of self confidence about and would go after him, saying horrible, mean, hurtful things. Also said that Dorothea could turn her bitchiness off and on like throwing a switch. She acted like a good mother, but after some of the crazy stuff she saw and heard her say my sister thought it might just be an act a lot of the time.
My sister said Jon did his best to keep it away from the kids.
When the kids got older they would take the kids and a nannies on tour. (I think that the age the child had to be was 5. They left the younger one(s) at home with practically an army of nannies, I think it was 2 live in nannies for each kid). Tho there were several times it would just be the kid(s) and nannies that would travel because at the last minute Dorothea would throw a fit and refuse to come, or she'd refuse to let the kids go. I think she canceled a couple of family trips at the last minute, not telling anyone until the morning they were supposed to leave that she'd canceled all their reservations and hid everyone's passports. (I may be remembering the right bad behavior, but the wrong person. Sorry)
They wouldn't take the kid(s) with for the whole tour, it was something like a week to 10 days on tour then a couple weeks back home, and then take the kids back out. He would spend a lot of time with the kids doing kid stuff in each city. When there was a break in the touring schedule he would have the younger kids and nannies flown to vacation spots so they could all be together.
My sister was a nanny for a long time and she's always said the Bon Jovi's were about the best bosses. It was considered a great job to get hired by them because they (mostly Jon) didn't treat their nannies like just the help, but more like a part of the family, and they paid better than just about anyone else. When my sister quit to go back to school they gave her $10,000 as severance to help her pay for school.

He sounds like a great guy, R52. All accounts seem to suggest he was/is a great dad--or as good as a famous person can be. I'm sure this episode with his daughter is killing him. Shows you that life can be full of heartbreak even when you "have it all."
|by Heather Sambora||reply 53||11/15/2012|
"agree he's a shitty singer and songwriter and probably a closet case, I wonder if this kid is biologically his, his wife looks like his mom."
Of course, that kid is his. In the photos in today's NY Daily News, you can see how much the daughter looks like him with a bit of the wife's sour face thrown in.
I don't know much about his wife, but suppossedly they are around the same age. Jon just has better genes! Jon is 50.
His wife was a longtime girlfriend he would breakup with, then keep on re-connecting with her, then they eventually married.
Perhaps it's a marriage of convenience, a marriage because they came from the same background? Who knows. I never got a gay vibe from him at all. He's very much like an old female friend's husband, also a rocker, who is really full of himself and is always preening because he's so handsome.
IIRC, Jon had a brief relationship with Josh Brolin's wife, the actress Diane Lane, before she was married to Josh.
Not all rockers kids are into heroin, some actually make an effort to have their own careers. Two of Sting's kids are singers, his daughter Coco is great and his daughter Kate with his first wife, Irish actress Frances Tomelty, is an accomplished actress like her mom.
When the kids of rockers, or actors/actresses, become slackers and junkies I blame the parents lack of parenting. Perhaps Jon needs to spend less time gazing at himself in the mirrors he must have all over his homes!
I can't stand Gene Simmons, but his kids could have been two spoiled assholes, but they come across as almost normal considering Gene's wealth, arrogance and general obnoxiousness!

"Actually, you look like the UPS driver who used to deliver in your area."
Hardly, my mom was at work all day with a bunch of gay men, she worked for a small dress design firm in Manhattan. She didn't have time to fuck strangers.
Sorry to disappoint you. I actually do look like my dad's late father, a sandy blond haired light eyed Italian and my mom's sister, a also green eyed, but with dark brown hair, we have similar features.
In fact, none of my dad's siblings had light eyes like my granddad, was my grandmother cheating too? Give me a break.
I guess a lot of people are clueless about genetics and how even illnesses, such as cancer, can pass a generation. How sad for you.

I think it was Frida Kahlo who, when addressing Diego Rivera's constant cheating, said 'There is a difference between fidelity and loyalty.' It wasn't until he crossed the loyalty line and betrayed her in a way that hurt that she left him.
Is it not understood that men, on the road for months at a time, are going to have sex with other people? Can't we just look at it as a biological, animal need versus an emotional, spiritual betrayal? Does that really determine whether a man is in love with and dedicated to his partner and his family? I think that he stayed with his wife speaks volumes about his character whether there was random sex along the way or not.

R49, Of course I'm serious. Your partner should always be your #1 cheerleader, even if you disagree. To publicly dis a famous spouse is totally unacceptable. Instant divorce, in my book.

R51, R58, I really appreciate reading your insights. Having grown up with very angry, negative parents, I wish that Jon Bon Jovi had divorced his meanie of a wife, and found his kids an emotionally stable step-mom. I sure hope his daughter isn't self-medicating to deal with her understandable pain.
|by Heather Sambora||reply 62||11/15/2012|
maybe jon's a masochist and thrives on his wife's verbal attacks. he's a pisces and we do love to play the victim when we can. I suspect she knows that being the dominant one is the key to holding him all of these years.
judge the wife and give his cheating ass a pass. that's the DL way :)
|by Heather Sambora||reply 63||11/15/2012|
R63, Playing the victim? Or growing up believing that divorce hurts kids? Sadly warring parents and emotionally angry caretakers causes more harm. Like military men whose careers require long separations, and women that marry men they know to be bi or gay, fidelity is not always a realistic expectation.
|by Heather Sambora||reply 64||11/15/2012|
if your partner cheated on you every time he went on tour, for decades, would you store up a little rage?
putting it all on the women is classic DL.
Jon can be a dirtbag, and still be the "good guy", because he acts out when he's away from the family! she's there every day!

R65, I would NOT "store up a little rage," especially if I had kids that would suffer as a consequence of my selfish, emotionally negative behavior. There is a choice to be made. Many women have to struggle, under very difficult circumstances, just to give their kids the basic necessities. Accept his cheating and be realistic, or divorce. Never bash your partner in public. Not only does it make you look rotten, it destroys the kids psychologically.
|by Heather Sambora||reply 67||11/15/2012|

So she emotionally abuses him in private - well, that's sooooooo much better. Neither of them seem like great parents. She seems like an emotionally abusive and manipulative monster to the entire family. He seems a bit better.

Which is it?
|by Heather Sambora||reply 73||11/15/2012|
Nobody has any idea what the Bon Jovis private life is like. The wife didn't say he was fat and old -- he *claimed* his wife said that. He was probably just playing at being a Humble Everyguy.
And I wouldn't believe the average DLer who claims to know celebs. We're always catching them out in their bullshit. This one claims the kids wre brought up normally, then says they were left with an army of nannies when they were younger than 5 when the parents went on tour. Hon, a normal life is not being left behind by both patents when you are under age 5, and it's not being taken on tour when you are 5 years old.
His wife might be a raging cunt or she might be a nice person. You really don't know.

I live in the same town as JBJ and the general consensus around here is that he's an arrogant A-hole. He does a lot for charity, but it's usually for publicity.(Food donation trucks have 'donated by JBJ' in HUGE letters on the sides.) I don't know him but have friends that do, and they don't speak highly of him. He has a beehive on his property so it's accessed as 'farmland' and he doesn't have to pay the normal tax rate and it ticks off a lot of locals.
One the other hand... everybody speaks very highly of Springsteen. He does the same thing with the farmland subsidies, but he actually has a farm that a couple of women run. I don't know how much it produces, but they sell their organic produce at the local farmer's market on Sundays in the summer. Springsteen does a LOT for local charities, but it's always done quietly. He's often seen (I've had a few 'sightings') in local businesses, bars and beaches looking average and scruffy wearing a leather jacket that probably cost as much as my house. He's also known to perform in Asbury Park on a whim when he's in town.
Never hear much about Max...

She won't be facing charges and neither will her bf. They are covered under the Good Samaritan law which exempts the 911 caller and the victim from drug charges. (Unless there is a large amount of drugs at the scene) The law was passed so that people wouldn't dump their ODing friend and run away because they are afraid of drug charges being brought against them.
Turns out it was pretty common for people to do that and their friends died.

Jon's wife didn't call him old and fat, it was a joke. During an interview, the reporter was saying along the lines that so many women find you attractive, what does your wife think of you and he laughed and said she thinks I'm old and fat, the reporter laughed and replied, she does not. It was a JOKE, when you hear the interview, you get that straight away.
He didn't cheat on his wife with Diane Lane, they were broken up when he went out with Diane. Jon and his wife had been together for 4 years but broke up due to touring, they were broken up for 9 months. During that time, is when he went out with Diane. He broke up with Diane and he went back to his wife because he missed and loved her. They got back together and have been ever since. Don't believe everything you read and hear.
