Heartthrob lied about dementia
When heartthrob David Cassidy died last year, women the world over felt their hearts break just a little, more so as the once teenager they had swooned over had dementia, which had stopped him touring.
However, in news that will shock, it appears that complete alcohol poisoning was the real reason for his death. In a recorded conversation Cassidy is reported to have said that he had no sign of him ‘having dementia at this stage in my life”. He apparently goes on to say, “the fact is I lied about my drinking, I did this to myself to cover up the sadness and the emptiness.”
At just 67, the most famous member of the Partridge family died of organ failure in November last year. Why he felt the need to lie about his illness we’ll probably never know.
