David Cassidy is in the hospital in critical condition - his organs are shutting down, and as one source put it, "It's looking grim".

David Cassidy has been hospitalized for liver and kidney failure and is now in critical condition, his rep confirms to PEOPLE. Both his liver and kidney are failing, according to his rep.

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".

The publication claims he "needs a liver transplant soon or he could die". Cassidy's health has been in decline for more than two months, and his family has been told to prepare for the worst.
