David Cassidy Moves Out of Penthouse Due to Settlement
Correction: An earlier post suggested that David Cassidy’s penthouse went through foreclosure; he moved out of the home due to a settlement agreement.
David Cassidy is no longer singing “Could It Be Forever” about this 34th-story penthouse. “The Partridge Family” star has agreed to surrender the $1.35 million Fort Lauderdale, FL condo to the bank within three months, rather than continue going through the foreclosure process, according to GossipExtra.com.
The 1970s heartthrob first received a foreclosure notice two years ago but chose to fight it, claiming “the bank couldn’t prove it owned the mortgage for the 34th-floor apartment” and calling the loan “predatory.”
However, it appears Cassidy has decided to cut his losses and move out of the Las Olas condo.
Cassidy got his big break as the lead on “The Partridge Family” as Keith Partridge. His success on the show led to his breakout as a teen heartthrob known to incite mobs at his concerts. The 62-year-old continues to tour and recently headlined a show at the South Point Casino in Las Vegas, where he had an outburst during the show. He apologized for his actions, blaming the meltdown on cold medication.
Cassidy has lived in Florida since the 1980s and retains ownership of another downtown Fort Lauderdale condo.
