UPDATED: David Cassidy Dead @ 67
David Cassidy, “Partridge Family” Star, Dead at 67
“On behalf of the entire Cassidy family, it is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our father, our uncle, and our dear brother, David Cassidy.
“David died surrounded by those he loved, with joy in his heart and free from the pain that had gripped him for so long.”
TMZ is reporting that David Cassidy’s condition has deteriorated and he’s now in ICU on a breathing tube, while his family is preparing for the end. Yesterday, it was reported that Cassidy was in dire need of a liver transplant. But now sources say, “There’s really no issue anymore for a transplant. It’s futile.”
From yesterday (11/18):
According to TMZ, David Cassidy was rushed to a Florida hospital three days ago and is now in critical condition. The celebrity news website reports that Cassidy is suffering from organ failure and unless he gets a liver transplant he could possibly die. It is also being reported that the former teen idol is suffering from kidney failure. “It’s looking grim,” one source revealed.
I’m very sad to hear about David Cassidy. There were times in the mid-1970s when he would come over to my house and we even started writing a song together. He was a very talented and nice person. Love & Mercy to David and his family.

Very sad about David Cassidy; met him in the late 80s/early 90s, and after all that adulation and hysteria was a remarkably stable and nice guy. Possibly my quintessential pop idol #DavidCassidyRIP
