Jeez. Cassidy died last year of liver failure at the age of 67.
“Partridge Family” star David Cassidy admitted to producers months before his death that he hid his ongoing battle with alcoholism and did not have dementia, a new documentary shows.
The A&E docuseries “David Cassidy: The Last Session,” set to air on June 11, includes an audio recording of Cassidy speaking to an A&E producer after he was hospitalized just two months before his death. The former child star had become ill in the recording studio and was rushed to the hospital.
In the audio, Cassidy explained to the producer what the doctors told him during his hospitalization.
“I have liver disease,” Cassidy told A&E producer Saralena Weinfield. “There is no sign of me having dementia at this stage of my life. It was complete alcohol poisoning. … The fact is that I lied about my drinking,” he said. “I did this to myself to cover up the sadness and the emptiness.”
