“Partridge Family” star David Cassidy is suffering from multiple organ failure at a Florida hospital, his rep confirmed to several media outlets Saturday.
Cassidy, 67, was admitted to the unidentified facility earlier this week.
His family have been warned to prepare for the worst, TMZ states. Doctors believe he could die without an urgent transplant.
The Partridge Family star opened up about his dementia diagnosis in February this year, after worried fans questioned his health following a gig in which he forgot the lyrics to his own songs.
The New York Daily News, citing Cassidy’s rep, reported that the singer’s liver and kidney were failing and he needed a transplant.
“I was in denial, but a part of me always knew this was coming,” he said at the time.
David revealed his grandfather and his mother both battled the disease, and speaking to People magazine about his mum’s struggles, he continued: “In the end, the only way I knew she recognised me is with one single tear that would drop from her eye every time I walked into the room… I feared I would end up that way.”
The Partridge Family star told the website that he planned to stop touring this year to concentrate on his health.
Cassidy has also battled substance abuse issues and went to rehab in 2014.
