"Partridge Family" star David Cassidy has been hospitalized in Florida after suffering organ failure, his spokesperson told ABC7 on Saturday.

The Partridge Family alum's health has deteriorated since being rushed to the hospital three days ago.

Cassidy is best known for his role as Keith Partridge in the '70s TV series and for his career as a pop singer. Cassidy's character sang lead. His real stepmother, Shirley Jones, played his mother on the show. Cassidy's own parents, Evelyn Ward and Jack Cassidy, were both actors. His fan club in the 1970s was one of the largest of its kind.

The actor's rep added that Cassidy was in an induced coma but that "he is now conscious and surrounded by family".

Patricia told investigators she had lost custody of her three children when they were younger but reconnected with them in 2014. Court records show the marriage was annulled last month at the request of Misty Spann on the grounds of fraud and illegality.

Cassidy kept touring and recording after his role as Keith Partridge ended in 1974, performing on Broadway in NY, in London's West End and in Las Vegas.

His family are now said to be at the hospital to be by his side as his condition worsens.

Earlier this year, the actor announced that he planned to retire from touring, and later revealed to People that he's battling dementia. "That's when I began to be very concerned", Cassidy said on the program.
