(New York Daily News) – David Cassidy is in critical condition with organ failure, his rep confirmed to the Daily News.

Cassidy, 67, was rushed to the hospital about three days ago and is in desperate need of a liver transplant. Both his liver and a kidney are failing, according to his rep.

“The Partridge Family” star’s health has been failing for more than two months, sources close to the family told TMZ, which was the first to report his hospitalization.

A rep for the actor said he was “currently conscious and surrounded by family,” but was previously induced in a coma. His rep told The News he was admitted to the hospital “either Wednesday or Thursday” for being “very ill.”

It is unclear what is causing his organs to shut down.

The Fort Lauderdale, Fla. resident revealed in February that he was diagnosed with dementia in 2015. He opened up about his battle with the disease on “Dr. Phil” after he fell on stage and forgot the lyrics to his own song during a concert in Agoura Hills, Calif. earlier that month.
