Strolling round New York like newlyweds, Jon Bon Jovi and his wife were all smiles yesterday.
The handsome rocker and Dorothea Hurley couldn't have looked less concerned about the upcoming publication of an explosive new book about his band.
In the book "Sex, Drugs and Bon Jovi," the band's former tour manager Rich Bozzett writes that the "very thing that made Jon feel so passionate" toward Lane "ended up being the reason for their unceremonious breakup." Bozzett explains that Lane "was young and wild and loved to party. "Some people will just try and sell a book, and I can't blame them," Lane says, adding: "They can make up what they like.
They have after all been married for 21 years and, as his childhood sweetheart, she knew exactly what she was buying into.
So they are well placed to survive the revelations of former Bon Jovi manager Rich Bozzett - which lifts the lid on his relationship with actress Diane Lane, who took up with bandmate Richie Sambora.
The pair were apparently a hot couple back in 1985 but broke up over the actress's growing relationship with band mate Richie Sambora according to the new book.
Bozzett claims in Sex, Drugs And Bon Jovi that the rocker initially loved Lane's partying lifestyle but was angered when she started a cosy relationship with the band's guitarist.
