RICHIE LEFT BON JOVI FOR HER

Richie could have stayed in the spotlight, enjoying fame and success, but he decided to leave the iconic Bon Jovi band to become a full-time dad to Ava.

Ava has made such a huge mark in her father's life that he stepped away from his band in 2013 to care for her. Richie was the extraordinarily successful band's lead guitarist.
