'The Partridge Family' star and singer David Cassidy hospitalized

David Cassidy In Critical Condition ... Organs Failing

Cassidy's family was with him, and the 67-year-old hoped to receive a liver transplant, his publicist Jo-Ann Geffen said. His rep has not confirmed this.

She did not say what caused the organ failure.

The actor - who lived in South Florida before moving to California in 2015 - was placed in an induced coma but has since been conscious and surrounded by family, according to the Associated Press.

Cassidy revealed in February that he was diagnosed with dementia after he fell on stage and forgot the lyrics to his own song during a concert in Angoura Hills, Calif.


Sources close to the family said they were told to expect "the worst".

The actor and singer was in pain and taken to hospital on Wednesday (local time), the representative added.

Cassidy, in an appearance on the talk show "Dr. Phil" earlier this year, opened up about the diagnosis, saying his mother and grandfather also both suffered from dementia.

Cassidy is best known for his role as Keith Partridge in the '70s TV series and for his career as a pop singer.
