Celebrity Kids In Trouble: Jon Bon Jovi Clueless About Daughter's Drug Problem

The children of celebrities have it made -- fortune, fame by proxy, and they didn't have to do much to get it.

But being born with a silver spoon in your mouth doesn't guarantee a perfect life and despite -- or because of -- their affluence, the offspring of the rich and famous often find themselves in some serious trouble.

Rocker Jon Bon Jovi recently spoke out about his 19-year-old daughter Stephanie Bongiovi's heroin overdose last month, telling the Associated Press that he had "no idea" his daughter had a drug problem.

"I'm shocked as much as the next parent with this situation and had no idea ... Great GPA. Cool school, Hamilton College up in Clinton, N.Y. Everything about it is idyllic. She was doing great. Then a sudden and steep decline. Hopefully, we caught it when we did and that's the end of it," he explained, adding that he's "confident that his daughter will be alright.

"But then you surround them with best help and love and move on, and that's where we're at with it," he said.
