Jon Bon Jovi
has opened up about his daughter's drug overdose and arrest at her college in NY ... calling the incident a "tragedy" ... but insisting the family will get through the situation together.

TMZ broke the story ... Stephanie Bongiovi was arrested on Nov. 14 after cops responded to call about someone who had overdosed in a dorm room. When cops arrived, Steph was alive ... and eventually arrested for drug possession. The charges were later dropped.

Last night, Stephanie's famous father spoke about the incident with Fox 11's Courtney Friel ... saying simply, "Things happen."

He added, "This tragedy was something that I had to face too so we'll get through it. And people's warm wishes for my family and I have been really reassuring. So, we're good."

Things could always be worst. She could be with Tommy from the docs.

I would find the whole interview a little more "real" if he wasn't sitting next to a poster shilling a new Pacino movie.

PLEASE. She was never pregnant in the first place. There is no shame in having a surrogate.

Tragedy? They dropped the charges. Tragedy is poor people living under the shadow of convictions for the rest of their lives.

His daughter is legally an adult. What else is he supposed to say, at least he's not making excuses like so many celeb parents do. His kids have never been in the lime light or on TMZ. A grown child goes off to college, lives on campus.. they are going to start to do things they might not otherwise.

Maybe this will age him , but it's nothing $$$ can't fix, the aging and the drug habit.

Jon, You & wife are terrible enablers to your very spoiled kids. If you want them to do well, you better toughen up QUICK!
