A raunchy photo of [lastfm]Jon Bon Jovi[/lastfm] was released this week by one of his former tour managers, [lastfm]Rich Bozzett[/lastfm]. The ex-manager claims that he was cheated out of millions of dollars from another associate of the famous New Jersey frontman.
Jovi stars in a series of photos, which were taken by famed photographer [lastfm]Ross Marino[/lastfm] in 1985 during the 7800º Fahrenheit tour. The centerpiece of the collection displays Bon Jovi stretched out on a bed nuzzling four topless women in a provocative setting. They were meant to be publicity shots for the tour but were never used.
The pictures are available in Bozzett’s new memoir on Bon Jovi called Sex, Drugs and Bon Jovi, which hit stores this week. It wasn’t until after Marino died, however, that Bon Jovi was nervous about the photo being leaked.
In the book Bozzett writes, “A panic-stricken Jon Bon Jovi immediately called up [lastfm]Doc [McGhee[/lastfm], his manager] to tell him that we needed to track down the pictures as soon as possible.”
A spokesperson of Bon Jovi said: “This is an outtake of a photo shoot. Everyone should be so lucky at 22 years old.”
