  1. Your information you posted in your bio on Jon and Dorthea
    Bon Jovi is TOTALLY INCORRECT.
    Dorothea had a boyfriend that went into the military The boyfriend of hers was a friend of Jons. In one of their classes Jon sat right behind her and during a test was leaning over trying to cheat by getting answers off of her test. He really did not know her until after that. But once her boyfriend went into the military he said he waited about 3 weeks and and then made a move on Dorothea they WERE BOTH SENIORS in HIGH SCHOOL. Yes they went to the same school but they weren’t dating those 4 years like you CLAIMED they were. They Graduated from high school in 1980 Z they were together for 4 years after that then John started spending too much time on it’s much time on getting his career going that when it started to get going they broke up, this was around
    end of 1984 -1985. After that Job
    was introduced to Diana Lane through some friends. They Dated for only about 5 months.
    Jon broke it off because she started spending (partying) to much with Richie. After that I think he date a few girls but
    Realized He still loved Dorthea and to her house and begged her to come back. Said he knew then she was the only girl for him. You Really need to correct your incorrect information.
    1. They did not date all through high school like you claimed.
    They started dating in 1980–84.
    You stated Jon and Diana were together for along time and the were together from 1980–1985.
    wrong. AThere wre other mistakes miss information about Jon,Dorthea and Diana.
    you need to fix . you are a bad reporter because you made big
    Information mistakes and didn’t correct them. I think this is terrible for a reporter to do.
