            David Cassidy reveals he has dementia

After a recent concert in California, former teen idol David Cassidy got viral attention for the wrong reasons after footage of his show hit the internet.

Cassidy, 66, appeared drunk, confused and disoriented during his Agoura Hills, California, show, where he often slurred his words and forgot the lyrics to his songs.

Many assumed that Cassidy had relapsed to alcohol abuse after spending years in and out of rehab. While that could still be the case, Cassidy said that there is a far worse thing going on.

People reported that his grandfather and mother before him, Cassidy has dementia.

"I was in denial, but a part of me always knew this was coming," Cassidy told People.

Prior to his show in California, Cassidy announced he would retire from touring. Now it seems that this decision was brought on by health reasons.

"I want to focus on what I am, who I am and how I've been without any distractions," he told People. "I want to love. I want to enjoy life."

In 2012, Cassidy opened up about his mother's illness during an interview with the Daily Mail.

"As people are now living well into their 80s, the cases of dementia and Alzheimer's are on the increase," Cassidy said.  "My mother has been in 24-hour nursing care for seven years now, and I'm lucky to be able to afford it, but many people aren't that lucky."

"People don't really want to talk about it, but we need to, which is why I'm going to be speaking publicly about it."

Fox News reported that Cassidy's mother died at age 89 in 2013.

            Lisa Marie Presley's daughters with grandmother after father accused of abuse, neglect

The rumor mill began turning after last week’s news that Lisa Marie Presley discovered inappropriate images of children on electronic devices belong to her estranged husband, Michael Lockwood -- especially after it was revealed that the California Department of Children and Family Services had stepped in and removed Presley's 8-year-old twin daughters, Finley and Harper Lockwood, from the family home.

According to a post on Priscilla Presley’s Facebook page, however, the little girls, the late Elvis Presley's granddaughters, are safe and comfortable in their grandmother’s home until "all this is sorted out." She writes, "The girls have not been in foster care and never will be. They have been with me."

 She also shared a second post with a photo of her granddaughters thanking everyone for their support.

 

There is Lots of confusion, commotion and concern from all the talk circulating. Let me put this to rest... the girls...

Posted by Priscilla Presley on Sunday, February 19, 2017

According to People, Lockwood is facing charges of child abuse and neglect after hundreds of photos of children were found on various devices in the family’s home. They also report that police in Beverly Hills confirmed that there were child abuse allegations involving Lisa Marie and Lockwood last summer. Lisa Marie filed for divorce from Lockwood last June and it is reported that she requested full custody of their daughters.

Those charges are now being investigated by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations. No official case has been opened.

Presley’s charges of child abuse were filed last month as part of their ongoing divorce proceedings.

People reported that it has been unable to confirm claims that Lockwood is under investigation and no explanation has been provided regarding why the children were removed from the custody of both parents.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for "all" your positive support. 🌹

            Bruce Springsteen gives Australian teen the thrill of a lifetime -- twice

Rocker Bruce Springsteen gave an Australian teenager the thrill of a lifetime when the Boss invited him onstage to perform a song with the band, and he stole the show Thursday night at a concert in Brisbane.

Nathan Testa, 14, was holding up a sign that said he skipped school to be there and wanted to perform “Growin’ Up,” a hit song from Springsteen’s 1973 debut album “Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J.”

The Boss, 67, noticed the sign and asked Testa if he knew the song. When the teen responded that he did, Springsteen brought him up onstage to play, and Testa did not disappoint, playing the song and sharing a mic with the rocker.

The legendary musician also gave the boy a few pointers on how to look like a rock star onstage.

“When I was your age, I bought my first guitar, and I realized it wasn’t how well you played it, but how good you looked doing it,” he said.

“So I go in front of the mirror trying out different poses.”

As it turns out, though, Testa has been onstage with Springsteen before. When he was 11, he did the same thing, the Courier-Mail reported. He held a sign up at a concert asking the Boss to perform a song and Springsteen brought him up to play “Waitin’ on a Sunny Day.”

@springsteen An amazing experience that I will never forget. Got the job done. Thanks, Mr Springsteen - Nathan Testa 18 Feb 2017#GrowingUp Nathan and Bruce  <3
