David Cassidy's Devastating Confession About His Health
Former Partridge Family star David Cassidy says he is struggling with dementia.
The 66-year-old has told People magazine his family has a history of the memory-ravaging disease and he had sensed "this was coming".
He said he had decided to stop touring as a musician in order to focus on his health and "enjoy life".
Cassidy's admission comes after TMZ released a video of the 1970s teen idol apparently slurring his words, forgetting lyrics and almost falling of the stage during a show in southern California on Saturday.
Cassidy has had numerous personal problems over the decades following his initial success, ranging from substance abuse to bankruptcy.
He is the stepson of actress and fellow Partridge Family star Shirley Jones.
