The Partridge Family star David Cassidy in critical condition

David Cassidy

A representative for Cassidy confirmed Saturday afternoon that the former "Partridge Family" star is in critical condition.

According to TMZ, the actor is looking at getting a liver transplant, without which "he could soon die" with the situation "looking grim".

They also claim the seventies idol is suffering from kidney failure.

Earlier this year, Cassidy revealed that he was battling dementia and could no longer perform following a concert in California.

"I want to focus on what I am, who I am and how I've been without any distractions", he told People in February.

He went on to become a successful singer garnering a loyal fan base and performing many of his hit songs from "The Partridge Family", such as "I Think I Love You".

In the show, Cassidy's stepmother, Shirley Jones, played his fictional mother, Shirley Partridge.

"I feared I would end up that way".

After coming to terms with his condition, Cassidy said he made the decision to stop touring as a musician to concentrate on his health and happiness.
