(showbizspy.com) - Singer Jon Bon Jovi has revealed sordid details of his secret past - he used to be a drug dealer.
45-year-old Bon Jovi admits to selling cannabis in New Jersey as a teenager - before he found fame.
'I did the drug thing very young and wised up very young too, because I was into drugs a little too much,' he says.
'I was entrepreneurial even then, buying quarter pounds of dope and trying to make a couple of bucks.'
However, the 'It's My Life' singer insists that his bad experiences with drugs turned him off ever becoming a user.
'Did you ever smoke dope that was laced with PCP and then have that whole summer of hallucinations? It was fucking awful,' he told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper.
'That's why I've never been a drug guy. I've always felt I didn't have the mental stability.'
