Spokeswoman says David Cassidy in hospital with organ failure

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS

    Publicist JoAnn Geffen tells the Associated Press that David Cassidy is in a Fort Lauderdale-area hospital with liver and kidney failure.

NEW YORK >> “Partridge Family” star David Cassidy has been hospitalized in Florida with multiple organ failure.

Publicist JoAnn Geffen tells the Associated Press that Cassidy is in a Fort Lauderdale-area hospital with liver and kidney failure. She says he’s in a private room, conscious and surrounded by family. Geffen says there is nothing “imminent” about his condition, and doctors are hoping to “keep him as well as they can until they can find another liver.”

Earlier, his rep said Cassidy was in pain and taken to the hospital on Wednesday.

The 67-year-old former teen idol said earlier this year that he was struggling with memory loss and that he was ending his 50-year career.

He’s the stepson of actress and fellow “Partridge Family” star Shirley Jones.
