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.

    I'm always surprised, surely by now these people would've heard something bad about heroine use. Let's hope she gets better. By the way, if Bon Jovi cancels their SA tour, I'll be seriously upset.

      Saw them in Durbs yonks ago, my first rock concert. Was pretty good. Bon Jovi, however, are one of those bands who don't sound the same live, as they do on the mastered CDs. The older they get, the harder it is for the to hit those big notes. Should still be a good concert, but I wasn't going to go see them again this time around.

      I think what you just tried to do is called 'humour', only in your case it wasn't actually funnny. Trying to crowbar something like that together just makes you sound stupid.

    Shame, sucks big time. He always kept his family out of the spotlight and now this little bomb. Not a good day at all.
