David Cassidy

Wife Files for Divorce

2/11/2014 1:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

david-cassidy-sue-gettyDavid Cassidy's wife will file for divorce this morning ... ending their 23-year marriage ... TMZ has learned.

Sue Cassidy is not saying whether the decision to divorce has anything to do with David's ongoing and often losing battle with alcohol ... but she tells TMZ, "I'm glad David is getting the help he needs and I am confident he will come back better and stronger than ever."

David was arrested last month in L.A. for DUI and is currently in rehab.  This is his 3rd DUI arrest.

The couple has been together for 28 years and have a son, Beau, 23. 

Sue says the decision to divorce isn't coming out of the blue, saying, "This has been looming for some time."  But she adds, "I am truly heartbroken that our marriage is ending."

We're told the couple has been living separately for 4 months.

Cassidy could have made it as an actor but he insisted on being a rock star, with no rock music to back it up. Now he's a novelty act and it's killing him due to his over-inflated ego - his other inherited trait.

His father was an alcoholic too. David seemed clean and sober for many years. Now he's on a downhill spiral again. Good he's finally in rehab is what he needs.

David was like the Justin Bieber of his time but found out how fickle fame could be. He was famous for his looks really and Partridge Family not anything else. Should've quit entertainment long ago and found another line of work.

His partner did well to stick by him this long he needs to help himself and she needs to look after herself.

Maybe if his home life were better he wouldn't be out drinking.

*********JIMMY FALLON WILL BOMB ON THE TONITE SHOW!!! WHY? HERE ARE 10 REASONS:

1. Moved the show to New York. Has to compete now with David Letterman (who films in NY) for guests.

2. Not enough experience. Was on SNL for a couple of years reading the fake news and then had his own show at 12:35 am for a couple of years that was moderately successful.

3. Jay Leno's final speech. Very memorable and showed that Fallon has big shoes to fill. People will also be angry that Jay was given the hook when he had a couple of years left in him

4. Jay was good at monologue, Letterman good at interviewing....Jimmy? Not good at either.

5. Carson let his guests shine. Fallon is all about himself...like Conan OBrien. He turns every "interview" into a cartoonish specatacle and about him, not his guests. Very tiresome.

6. People aren't watching TV anymore with netflix, youtube, facebook

7. Competition-Fallon is against David Letterman, Arsenio Hall, Conan Obrien, Craig Ferguson, Jack Van Impe. He will wilt under the pressure

8. Fallon's final show. Anyone watch it? Fallon mocked Leno breaking down and crying and made a brief mention of it being leno's final show. Completely classless. People dont forget you clown.

9. The Carson factor. Lorne Michaels called Jimmy Fallon "the closest thing to Johnny Carson I have ever seen". Really Michaels?? I think you are the only one. Id sure like to get a hold of whatever you are smoking.

10. Not enough time to get an audience. NBC wil run out of patience for fallon to get good ratings. With Leno, they gave him 2 years to build an audience. With Conan they gave him 8 months. Fallon has 6 months tops to get good ratings or they will give him the boot. Good luck kid. Youre going to need it.

How does this guy not work at Costco? He can't possibly still be supporting himself on EFX money... One of the dickiest celebrities I've ever encountered.

According to arrest details from last year, David Cassidy has had a fiancee since last August. She was in the car with him when he was arrested for his second DUI. Having a new fiancee since that time while he is still married, would tend to kind of put a crimp in their marriage, don't you think?? How did TMZ miss the detail about the fiancee?

So glad she is moving on. David is in need of some serious self-help. If he cannot love himself and take care, he surely can't care for family.

Good move, girlfriend!
