Jon Bon Jovi's family life has been in the media glare over the past week after his 19-year-old daughter, Stephanie Bongiovi, reportedly overdosed on heroin and was arrested on drug possession charges.
The rocker initially didn't comment, but he did open up earlier this week to Los Angeles' Fox 11.
"It's human. What I do for a living seems glitzy and glamorous, but if you don't take it too seriously, it's just a great way to make a living," Bon Jovi told the TV station.
"And then, life goes on, things happen. This tragedy was something that I had to face, too. We'll get through it, and people's incredible warm wishes for my family and I have been really reassuring. So, we're good. We're good," said the singer, who has four children with his wife, Dorothea Hurley (pictured above with daughter Stephanie).
The misdemeanor charges against Bongiovi for possession of a controlled substance or the use of drug paraphernalia were subsequently dropped.
