Jon Bon Jovi confesses he’s got ‘away with murder’ during 35-year marriage!

Jon Bon Jovi has declared he has got “away with murder” during his 35-year marriage.

The ‘You Give Love a Bad Name’ singer, 62, has been married to his high school sweetheart Dorothea Hurley, 61, since 1989, and after making headlines earlier this month for saying he had not been a “saint” in their relationship has now elaborated on how he has kept their romance alive despite once being a womanising rocker.

He told Michael Strahan on ABC’s ‘Halfway There’ special about his early days in the music business and how he has gotten “away with murder” with Dorothea: “(I’m) not saying that there weren’t 100 girls in (my) life.

“I’m a rock ‘n’ roll star. I’m not a saint. I’m Jon Bon Jovi. It was pretty good.

“But if you think I was ever going to jeopardise anything for believing the narcissist in me was real? What a stupid thing to do.

“What kind of excesses does a man need that’s going to fuel that fire? It’s just not worth it.”

The Grammy winner praised karate teacher Dorothea for not being “afraid to call (me) out on something”, but added: “She’s also there when I fall. And I’m there for her when she falls. No matter where I went in my career, the ups or the downs, we went there together.”

Jon and Dorothea started dating in 1980, four years before the release of Bon Jovi’s self-titled first album.

The duo briefly split in 1985 before reconciling and then eloping in Las Vegas in 1989.

Jon and Dorothea have four children: Stephanie, 30, Jesse, 29, Jake, 21, and 20-year-old Romeo.

The singer’s wife missed last week’s screening of his new documentary – sparking speculation it was due to him revealing he wasn’t the “saint” in their marriage.

But it later emerged she had been absent from the red carpet showing of Hulu film ‘Thank You Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story’ on 25 April as she had to quarantine after testing positive for Covid.

A representative for Jon told Page Six on Saturday (27.04.24): “As of this morning, she’s feeling well and recovered.”

An insider added to the outlet Jon was “super sad” his wife couldn’t make the screening.
