The Partridge Family star David Cassidy is hospitalized and in critical condition. Both his kidney and liver are failing, a representative for the actor confirms to EW.

The former teen heartthrob, now 67, is “currently conscious and surrounded by family,” the rep notes.

Cassidy checked into a Florida hospital earlier this week and is in need of a liver transplant.

Cassidy is best known for his role as Keith Partridge in the ’70s TV series and for his career as a pop singer. He made 10 albums for The Partridge Family, as well as more than eight solo albums and 24 singles. He’s sold more than 30 million records and was nominated for several Grammys.

Earlier this year, Cassidy revealed he was suffering from dementia. “I was in denial, but a part of me always knew this was coming,” he told PEOPLE of his diagnosis.

The actor also battled substance abuse issues, including a stint in rehab in 2014. In February 2015, Cassidy filed for bankruptcy and was charged following his hit-and-run eight months later in October 2015.
