Jon Bon Jovi’s Wife Shares the Real Reason She Didn’t Walk the Red Carpet With Him After He Admitted His Infidelity

The real reason Jon Bon Jovi’s wife didn’t attend her husband’s docuseries screening has been revealed.

On April 25, the rockstar walked the red carpet for the screening of his band’s docuseries Thank You Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story by himself. And many began to speculate why his wife of 35 years, Dorothea Hurley wasn’t by his side.

In the docuseries, Bon Jovi admitted publicly that he hadn’t “been a saint” during their decades long relationship. He went as far as to reveal that he had been unfaithful to her at times.

But despite the public declaration of his wrongdoing, the couple have seemingly worked through their issues as they remain husband and wife to this day. 

Nonetheless, despite staying married, many speculated that Dorothea skipped the docuseries screening because of his public admission.

Now, through her representation, Dorothea is sharing the real reason why she didn’t walk the red carpet alongside her husband.

Dorothea revealed that before the screening she tested positive for COVID-19 and avoided attending the public event so not to infect anyone else. “As of this morning, she’s feeling well and recovered,” the spokesperson told Page Six on April 27.

In an interview with The Independent, Bon Jovi revealed that he credits his long marriage to “a mutual admiration society, and being lucky enough to have grown up together.” However, he also admitted he didn’t make it easy for Dorothea and also credited their marriage to her “tolerance.”

“These are all the wonderful clichés of rock stardom,” he told The Independent. “It’s about never lying about having been a saint, but not being a fool enough to [mess] up the home life, either.”

Bon Jovi’s candor comes on the heels of their son gearing up to promise forever to his fiancée actress Millie Bobbi Brown. 

Their 21-year-old son Jake popped the question in 2023, making that three of the four children they share being engaged at the same time.

“I don’t know if age matters, you know, if you find the right partner and you grow together,” Bon Jovi said to Bravo’s Andy Cohen of his son’s engagement. “I think that would be my advice, really. Growing together is wise.”
