Bon Jovi Selling $42M Home, Asks For $18 Million Profit After Daughter’s Heroin Overdose

While Jon Bon Jovi’s family life may be on the rocks after his daughter Stephanie’s recent heroin overdose, his real estate holdings are apparently flourishing.
According to the NY Daily News, the New Jersey rocker recently listed his nearly 7,500-square-foot SoHo duplex penthouse for $42 million. That asking price is roughly $18 million more than the singer paid for the apartment back in 2007.
The impressive penthouse, which sits atop the New Museum at 158 Mercer St. has 5 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, a laundry room, two kitchens, and an elevator.
Curbed reports that Bon Jovi chose the Corcoran Group to broker the deal. The real estate agency’s website states that the penthouse also boasts 11-foot ceilings, arched windows, hardwood floors, a wood-burning fireplace, and “panoramic views looking over all of Soho and beyond.”
"This one-of-a-kind apartment is for the discerning buyer who can appreciate fine craftsmanship and all of the modern conveniences,” the Corcoran’s listing states.
Bon Jovi, 51, recently made headlines when his 19-year-old daughter Stephanie was arrested at her college dorm in upstate New York for heroin possession after an overdose. Bon Jovi opened up to Katie Couric last week, telling the news anchor and talk show host that hearing the news was the “worst phone call ever.”
Although Bon Jovi said that his daughter is now on the road to recovery, he admitted that the incident was a huge wake up call for him and that he is still trying to learn how to cope with the problem.
"She's doing great and I appreciate everyone's thoughts and prayers, [but] in short, that problem is much more prevalent...than I knew and I cannot get over how many people I've met that have said, 'My son, my daughter," he said. "There is a lot of pressure on kids these days. There's access to things my generation didn't have."
"I'm just blessed she's healthy and whole, and we'll get through it,” he added.
Stephanie Bongiovi was arrested along with another male student, Ian Grant, who was also charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance. According to E! Online, those charges have since been dropped because New York state law prohibits victims who suffer overdoses to be prosecuted.
