David Cassidy 'conscious after induced coma'

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

The 67-year-old actor-singer told People magazine at the time that his family has a history of dementia and he had sensed "this was coming". He became a teen idol, fueling his fame with such heart-throb hit as I Think I Love You.

In the show, Cassidy's stepmother, Shirley Jones, played his fictional mother, Shirley Partridge. His fan club in the 1970s was one of the largest of its kind.

The actor's rep told ABC News that Cassidy was in an induced coma but that "he is now conscious and surrounded by family". His publicist, JoAnn Geffen, confirmed his hospitalization, noting, "he is now conscious and surrounded by family".

TMZ said Cassidy is suffering from organ failure and unless he gets a liver transplant soon he could soon die. "That's when I began to be very concerned", Cassidy said on the program.
