New York - Authorities have said singer Jon Bon Jovi's 19-year-old daughter Stephanie was hospitalised after overdosing on heroin in a dorm at her New York state college.

Town of Kirkland police say an ambulance was sent to Hamilton College early on Wednesday after a report that a female had apparently overdosed on heroin.

Investigator Peter Cania said Stephanie Bongiovi is recovering at a hospital he declined to name.

Police say Bongiovi and 21-year-old Ian Grant were charged with drug possession. A law enforcement source told Hollyscoop that a small bag of heroin, marijuana and other drug paraphernalia was later discovered in Stephanie's room.

Both were issued tickets and ordered to appear in court at a later date.

The musician's representative hasn't commented.

Jon Bon Jovi together with his band Bon Jovi will be performing in SA in May 2013.
