The entertainment news website, citing unidentified sources, said Cassidy was hospitalized on Wednesday and is suffering from organ failure, including kidney failure. He is also in need of a liver transplant, according to the website.

Cassidy's publicist, Jo-Ann Geffen, declined to provide specific details about the singer's condition. "He is currently conscious and surrounded by family," she said, contradicting a part of the TMZ report, which claimed Cassidy was in an induced coma.

Other details were not immediately available, but Cassidy's health is said to have been failing for months. The 67-year-old revealed in February that he was diagnosed with dementia and plans to retire from his career as a singer at the end of this year.

Cassidy, who was born in New York in 1950, is well-known for his role as Keith Partridge in the 1970s musical-sitcom "The Partridge Family." His success - both as an actor and a singer - made him one of the most popular teen idols and pop singers of the 1970s.
