Jon Bon Jovi, the lead singer of the internationally renowned American rock band Bon Jovi received a major scare recently when his wife of 25 years, Dorothy, sliced open her hand while chopping some vegetables with a knife. She was slicing an onion and the knife slipped out of her hand and cut her left palm close to her wrist.
Most cuts would require a simple bandage but it seems that she cut herself quite severely as heavy bleeding ensued which led to Jon Bon Jovi taking no chances with the health of the woman he has been married to for a quarter of a century and whose relationship extends back to their days as high school sweethearts.
He quickly phoned 911 and she was taken to Beth Israel Medical Center where doctors stitched her up and were able to allow her to go home the same day.
For Jon Bon Jovi this seems to have been the second medical situation that he has had to address concerning his family. In mid-April the superstar singer was photographed going to lunch with his wife which would not have garnered much media attention except for the fact that he went to the lunch using crutches as a result of a leg injury. In the pictures he has a cushioned ankle walker on his right leg as he walked beside his wife as they were leaving the Bar Pitt restaurant.
Medical ailments aside the American rocker and his wife were also recently in the news because several months ago they put their luxurious New York penthouse for sale for only $42 million but when it did not sell they dropped the price to $39 million and as of April the asking price is $37.5 million.
