David Cassidy Convinced The World He Had Dementia. Then The Truth Finally Came Out

In November 2017 David Cassidy passed away following a series of health problems that had plagued him for years. The singer and actor – initially launched to fame via The Partridge Family – had of course been one of the biggest heartthrobs of the early 1970s. But towards the end of his life, Cassidy had revealed to fans that he’d struggled with alcoholism and had been diagnosed with dementia. Then a phone call released after the star’s passing revealed that not everything about Cassidy’s untimely demise had been as it first seemed.
