We often see celebrities as something more than they are. Some of their lives look perfect, and some families are very close, even in the spotlight. We believe their lives are just the way we see in the pictures, but that’s wrong. There are a lot of examples of dysfunctional families in Hollywood as well, and that doesn’t make it better. In a recent interview, David Cassidy announced he doesn’t have a good relationship with his actress daughter, Katie Cassidy.
A few days ago, David Cassidy revealed to People that is battling dementia. He watched his grandfather and mother battle the disease and shared:
“I was in denial, but a part of me always knew this was coming.”
Of his mother’s struggles, Cassidy recalls:
“In the end, the only way I knew she recognized me is with one single tear that would drop from her eye every time I walked into the room. … I feared I would end up that way.”
Following this news, people tend to get closer to their families. But David shared he never had a good relationship with his daughter, Arrow‘s Katie Cassidy.
