Jon Bon Jovi Says He Had ‘100 Girls in My Life’ Despite Being Married Since 1989

Yes, Jon Bon Jovican live on a prayer after these comments.

The Bon Jovi frontman reminisced during an interview with Michael Strahan during ABC’s “Halfway There” special Monday.

During the interview, the two talked about Bon Jovi’s marriage to wife Dorothea Hurley, whom the rock star started dating in high school and married in 1989.

When Strahan asked Bon Jovi about getting married so “young” and how stressful it must have been as a “sex symbol,” the “It’s My Life” singer admitted, “I got away with murder.”

“I’m a rock ‘n’ roll star. “I’m not a saint,” he said, somewhat jokingly. ‘I’m not saying there weren’t a hundred girls in my life. I’m Jon Bon Jovi. It was pretty good!”

While it’s unclear when these women were in Bon Jovi’s life, he also made it clear that he never did anything that would jeopardize his relationship with Hurley.

“But if you think I would ever be in danger… something because I believed the narcissist in me was real? What a stupid thing to do. What kind of excess does it take for a man to stoke that fire? It’s just not worth it.”

The “Always” singer’s comments to Strahan follow a similar quote about Hurley and their marriage that Bon Jovi gave to the Independent last week.

“These are all wonderful rock star clichés,” he told the outlet. “It’s about never lying about being a saint, but also about not being foolish enough to ruin family life.”

It should also be noted that Bon Jovi has long called himself “no saint,” and what he means by that may not be as nefarious as it seems.

In 2007, he told Best Life magazine through People:

“I’ve been in one of the biggest rock bands in the world for 25 years, and I’m not a saint, and I haven’t been a saint,” he said at the time. “I missed a lot of birthdays and school plays. But it’s not like Dorothea came in halfway through the movie and didn’t know who she was getting.

Bon Jovi and Hurley met in 1980 at a high school in New Jersey, according to People. They briefly split in 1985, when the rocker began a five-month relationship with actor Diane Lane. Shortly afterwards, Bon Jovi and Hurley rekindled the flame and married in a secret ceremony in Las Vegas in 1989. In 1993, Bon Jovi released the single ‘Bed of Roses’, which is about the singer regretting his excesses on the road.

Bon Jovi and Hurley, who just celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary, share four children: Stephanie, 30; Jesse, 29; Jake, 21; and Romeo, 20.
