2 Weeks After David Cassidy’s Death, Former Model Drops Bombshell

A former model has accused singer David Cassidy, who died several weeks ago, of sexual misconduct more than 30 years ago.

Samantha Fox claims Cassidy, who died of liver failure in Florida, groped her in a bathroom when she was 19, describing him as a “first-class creep.”

“When he grabbed me and pushed his tongue down my throat, I just kneed him,” she was quoted by the New York Post as saying.

Fox is publishing the claims in an autobiography, called “Forever.”

“David seemed to be deliberately drawing out the photoshoot, which took an eternity, and he had an erection the entire time—something he did absolutely nothing to hide,” added Fox.

Fox said she agreed to accompany him to dinner later that evening.

“In the middle of dinner, I got up to go to the toilet, and as I was standing alone in the women’s toilets, washing my hands, the door flew open and David Cassidy came storming in,” according to The Daily Star.

“Before I really had time to process what was happening, he had pushed me up against the wall and his hands were all over me. I shouted: ‘Get off me, David!’ in an attempt to stop him. But instead, he just stuck his tongue into my mouth and shoved a hand under my skirt,” she said.

“In that moment, the handsome, sweet guy from ‘The Partridge Family’ had transformed into a first-class creep,” said Fox.

Fox said that while growing up, she had a “big poster of David Cassidy on my wall, and I used to kiss him every night before going to bed.”
