David Cassidy Hospitalized With Organ Failure

A source tells Us Weekly exclusively that the former teen heartthrob is suffering from kidney and liver failure.

David Cassidy is in the hospital in critical condition with organ failure, the star's family friend and publicist confirmed.

Cassidy at one point was in an induced coma, but as of Saturday afternoon was "conscious and surrounded by family", a representative told the New York Daily News.

The singer and actor, a Florida resident, was diagnosed with early-stage dementia about two years ago, Geffen said.


The publication claims he "needs a liver transplant soon or he could die".

He appeared in the "Partridge Family" sitcom from 1970 to 1974 as the oldest son in a musical family headed by a single mother.

Speaking to People, David revealed how the condition was hereditary, saying: 'I was in denial, but a part of me always knew this was coming. Cassidy, whose song hits include "I Think I Love You" and "Cherish", said he would stop touring to focus on his health and "enjoy life".
