David Cassidy Hospitalized for Multiple Organ Failure

The actor-singer is in critical condition.

David Cassidy, the actor known for playing Keith on The Partridge Family, was hospitalized for multiple organ failure and is in critical condition, a rep confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter on Saturday.

The actor has been in the hospital for three days. He is in need of a liver transplant and has kidney failure. Page Six reports that Cassidy’s health is rapidly deteriorating, but that he is “conscious now and surrounded by family.” The news comes after the actor revealed in February that he has dementia.

The 67-year-old actor-singer told People magazine at the time that his family has a history of dementia and he had sensed “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.”

Cassidy has had numerous personal problems in the decades following his initial success, ranging from substance abuse to bankruptcy. He is the stepson of actress and fellow Partridge Family star Shirley Jones.

TMZ was the first to report the news.
