FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -- Television and music star David Cassidy remains in a Florida hospital where he is dealing with multiple organ failure.

The Website TMZ is reporting "David has taken a turn for the worse. He now has a breathing tube and doctors say David's prospects are grim." As one source puts it, "There's really no issue anymore for a transplant. It's futile."

Cassidy had been taken to the hospital on Wednesday. The Associated Press was told earlier today Cassidy is in a private room, conscious and surrounded by family.   TMZ also reports his son and ex-wife have been called to his bedside by doctors.

The 67-year-old former teen idol, who lives in the Fort Lauderdale area, said earlier this year that he was struggling with memory loss and that he was ending his 50-year career.
