David Cassidy has died Tuesday at the age of 67 shortly after being placed in an induced coma. Cassidy’s cause of death was identified as organ failure, according to People magazine.

“David died surrounded by those he loved, with joy in his heart and free from the pain that had gripped him for so long,” his family said in a statement obtained by People. “Thank you for the abundance and support you have shown these many years.”

The "Partridge Family" star was admitted to a hospital in Florida earlier this week. Cassidy was said to be surrounded by his family in the facility, according to his spokesperson.

Cassidy, 67, was rushed to a Florida hospital three days ago and might require a liver transplant, a close family friend told NBC News on Saturday.

Spokeswoman JoAnn Geffen confirmed to the Associated Press late Saturday night that David Cassidy experienced kidney and liver failure, but added there was nothing “imminent” about his condition. 

Publicist JoAnn Geffen told the Associated Press that Cassidy is in a Fort Lauderdale-area facility with liver and kidney failure. She also confirmed that he has been kept in a private room, conscious and surrounded by family. Geffen added that there was nothing "imminent" about Cassidy's condition, and doctors are hoping to "keep him as well as they can until they can find another liver."

Earlier this year, Cassidy had disclosed that he was battling dementia and could no longer perform following a concert in California in February this year. According to several reports at the time, he was reportedly having trouble remembering the lyrics to songs he has been singing for 50 years.

Cassidy told People Magazine then that he saw his grandfather live with dementia. He said he had also seen his mother, the actress Evelyn Ward, "disappear" into dementia until her death in 2012 at the age of 89 years.

"I was in denial," Cassidy said, "but a part of me always knew this was coming."

Cassidy rose to fame during the early 1970s, while working as an actor in the musical sitcom "The Partridge Family," where he played the role of the eldest of five siblings, who embarked upon a musical career together.

The show became immensely successful and it led to a dozen group and solo albums and was said to have sparked "Cassidymania," with numerous young fans buying pillowcases, lunchboxes, bubblegum and other items adorned with the actor's image.

As a singer, he toured the world singing his hit songs, such as "I Think I Love You," filling concert halls with screaming teenage girls.

Cassidy has spoken publicly about his battles with alcohol consumption in recent years.He was arrested for driving under the influence on three separate occasions during a span of four years between 2010 and 2014. In 2014, a judge sentenced Cassidy, who divorced his third wife in 2016 and was recently declared bankrupt, to three months in rehab and five years of probation for drunk-driving.

Cassidy, in an interview with CNN in 2014, said his struggles with alcohol were "very humbling and it's also humiliating."

Cassidy's father Jack Cassidy also an actor, died in 1976. His mother actress Evelyn Ward died in 2012. Shirley Jones, 83, who played Cassidy's mother on the show "The Partridge Family," was Jack Cassidy's second wife and David Cassidy's stepmother.

Cassidy's son is famous musician Beau Cassidy and daughter is actress Katie Cassidy.
