David Cassidy Says He Is Battling Dementia

Former "Partridge Family" star David Cassidy has revealed his is battling dementia after videos surfaced of him forgetting song lyrics at a Los Angeles concert on Saturday night.

Cassidy revealed to People magazine that he is battling dementia, which was also suffered by his mother, the late actress Evelyn Ward.

"I was concerned people would mistake my alcoholism with my diagnosis", says Cassidy after footage showed him struggling to remember lyrics to songs that he had been singing for almost 50 years during a show in Agoura Hills, California on Saturday.

David Cassidy is suffering from memory loss due to dementia, he says, and will stop touring to focus on his personal life.

"To all who've loved my work and that have been there for me, I want to be able to show my gratitude and awareness of your care and support. So...." "I want to love. I want to enjoy life", he told the magazine.

"I feared I would end up that way", he continued.

Over the past few years, Cassidy has had several brushes with the law.




The actor and singer recently fell off a stage while performing with his band.

I'm not going to vanish or disappear forever. However a person with dementia may become very passive, sitting in front of the television for hours, sleeping more than usual, or appear to lose interest in hobbies. "I hope you will find a way to come and be part of my celebration!"

After David Cassidy struggled to remember the words to a song he's been singing for nearly 50 years, many fans believed his struggles with alcoholism had resurfaced.

Following a trainwreck of a concert in LA over the weekend, David Cassidy has dropped a tragic bombshell.

Cassidy has had multiple arrests for drunk driving.

In 2015 he had to auction his Florida home after a bankruptcy filing.
