Jo-Ann Geffen continued in a statement: “He is currently conscious surrounded by family.

“I don’t know what his condition is technically but he is quite ill.”

She added to CNN: “Nothing is imminent and we are taking it day by day.”

Earlier this year, David revealed that he has dementia – with the star forced to open up after fans grew concerned when he forgot his lyrics during a show.

Revealing that his grandfather and mother had both suffered from the disease, the 67 year old told People magazine at the time: “I was in denial, but a part of me always knew this was coming.

“I want to focus on what I am, who I am and how I’ve been without any distractions. I want to love. I want to enjoy life.”

David previously spoke out on his alcohol battle too, telling Piers Morgan in 2014: “If I take another drink, I’m going to die, physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually. I’m dead.”

David’s actress daughter, Katie Cassidy, is among the star’s family at his hospital bedside, with Katie leaving a fan event for her TV show ‘Arrow’ to be with her dad.

Arrow’s producer, Norman D. Golden II tweeted and deleted: “Katie Cassidy just left a Heroes Villains Fan Fest in Atlanta after the news of her dad David Cassidy’s condition.

“She still took pics with fans beforehand and now her privacy should be respected. Stay strong KC.”
