Legendary singer David Cassidy is tipped to enter the jungle

Singer David Cassidy is hospitalized for liver and kidney failure and is now in critical condition, his rep confirmed to several Media outlets Saturday.

We're told David was rushed to a Florida hospital 3 days ago. and his condition has been worsening since his admission. He's the stepson of actress and fellow "Partridge Family" star Shirley Jones.




Cassidy, in an appearance on the talk show "Dr. Phil" earlier this year, opened up about the diagnosis, saying his mother and grandfather also both suffered from dementia. Cassidy's health has been in decline for more than two months, and his family has been told to prepare for the worst, according to the report.

Earlier this year, the actor announced that he planned to retire from touring, and later revealed to People that he's battling dementia. He became a teen idol, fueling his fame with such heart-throb hit as I Think I Love You. "That's when I began to be very concerned", Cassidy said on the program.
