(Undated) — 70’s teen heartthrob and actor David Cassidy is dead at the age of 67. His family released a statement saying he “died surrounded by those he loved, with joy in his heart and free from the pain that had gripped him for so long.” Cassidy was hospitalized in Florida last week after experiencing liver and kidney failure. Cassidy gained fame as Keith Partridge from the musical sitcom “The Partridge Family,” which ran from 1970 to 1974. That grew into a successful career as a pop artist. He made several albums as a member of The Partridge Family as well as a solo artist.
In recent years, Cassidy had been candid about his battle with alcohol and other personal problems. Earlier this year he announced he suffered from dementia.
