Actor David Cassidy in critical condition due to organ failure

David Cassidy In Critical Condition ... Organs Failing

David Cassidy, "Partridge Family" actor and 70s heartthrob, has been hospitalized and is "surrounded by family", his representative told The Associated Press.

"It's looking grim", a source told TMZ, which first reported Cassidy's hospitalization.

"He was in an induced coma, but as of right now is conscious".

The 67-year-old David Cassidy has been stricken with dementia. Cassidy's health has been in decline for more than two months, and his family has been told to prepare for the worst, according to the report.


In February, Cassidy announced he has dementia, something both his mother and grandfather battled. "I want to focus on what I am, who I am and how I've been without any distractions".

The sitcom ran from 1970 to 1974 and produced a number of hit songs in real life, including "I Think I Love You", which reached No. 1 on the Billboard chart in November 1970.

Cassidy has had numerous personal problems in the decades following his debut, ranging from substance abuse to bankruptcy.
