Dave Navarro is an America-based musician. He is best known as the guitarist of the rock band Jane’s Addiction.

David Michael Navarro was born to James Raul Navarro and Constance Colleen Hopkins

His grandparents from his father’s side migrated to the United States of America from Mexico. Dave did his schooling at Notre Dame High School

The school was situated in Sherman Oaks, California

There he was a part of the marching band along with Stephen Perkins, who became his bandmate in the band “Jane’s Addiction” later.


In March 1983, Dave’s mother, Constance Colleen Hopkins, and his aunt were shot dead in West Los Angeles

They were murdered by Constance’s ex-boyfriend John (Dean) Riccardi when the guitarist was only 15 years old

The criminal was on the loose for nearly a decade. 

However, the case was featured in “America’s Most Wanted” in 1991, after which, with the help of a viewer’s tip, John was finally arrested. 

In 2004, while appearing in “America’s Most Wanted,” Dave revealed that he was supposed to be with his mother on the day of her killing, but fortunately, he went to stay at his father’s at the last moment.


This documentary showcases the deepest, darkest fears, ranging from drug abuse to his musical journey. 

Dave quoted that the incident changed his life forever. On the journey to understand the whole scenario, he confronted his horrifying past. 

Also, he spoke to friends, family, and FBI agents about the heart-breaking events that affected his life forever.

Dave revealed that he used drugs as an escape from his mother’s death while, on the other hand, he used the death to do drugs. 

Dave also narrated that the murderer apparently wanted to hurt his mother, but if John wanted to hurt her, he should have killed him (Dave).


Dave disclosed that he had started doing drugs before his mother was killed. He was addicted to drugs for many years. 

His drugs of choice were heroine and cocaine. 

His 2015 documentary “The Mourning Son” had details about his addiction and also contained graphic footage of his using drugs at a younger age. 

However, when the documentary was released, he had given up all his addiction. He claimed that he had been completely sober since 2012.


Navarro has had three wives till today. In 1990, he got married to the celebrity makeup artist Tania Goddard-Saylor

Their marriage ended in 1992. Then his marriage with Rhian Gittins in 1994 was annulled shortly after. 

After that, in 2003, he tied the knot with Carmen Electra. His then-wife was a model and actress.

Their wedding ceremony was documented in “Until Death Do Us Apart: Carmen and Dave” in 2004

However, in 2007, the duo got divorced, the main reason being their conflicting schedules. 

“They are better off as best friends”, a close source exclaimed. Currently, Dave is in a relationship with the actress Vanessa DuBasso.
