Aging heartthrob David Cassidy filed for bankruptcy yesterday in a federal court in Fort Lauderdale, according to records. The star of the long ago sitcom The Partridge Family and singer of the 1970s anthem I Think I Love You reported in his Chapter 11 filing he has nearly $500,000 worth of debts that he’s not able to pay back.
Cassidy, 64, lives in Fort Lauderdale Beach, apparently let a credit line with Wells Fargo spiral out of the control. He reported owing the bank $292,598. He also ran up about $30,000 in credit card debts with both American Express and Citibank, the records show. He also owes $105,000-plus to a handful of law firms based in Broward County, including $102,000 with Rodier & Rodier, personal injury lawyers in Hallandale.
Among other IOUs, he need to pony up $924 for PB Labs in Lake Worth. The lab provides urinalysis mandated by court systems. Cassidy has been on probation after three DUI arrests in three states.
