David Cassidy’s estranged wife is lining up with other creditors to get a piece the action in the former teen idol’s bankruptcy case, according to documents obtained by RadarOnline.com.
The former Partridge Family singer has been going through a nasty divorce from Susan Shifrin Cassidy, his wife of 23 years, since last summer.
But her lawyer recently filed a notice in Cassidy’s bankruptcy case demanding that she be considered a creditor and therefore be provided with “all documents, pleadings and exhibits in this case.”
Cassidy, 64, filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last month to stop the financial bleeding after a tough year that included his third drunken driving arrest and . His financial statement says while he earns $12,500 a month, he has expenses of $27,000.
Cassidy’s biggest debt is $1.6 million owed on his $3 million South Florida home, which is also at issue in his divorce. He also owes an unsecured debt of $292,000 to Wells Fargo Bank. Several law firms are also listed as creditors, a result of his several legal fights in recent years, including the DUIs and a long battle with Sony over Partridge Family merchandising residuals.
Cassidy can find some bright spots on his balance sheet, however. He’s due $94,000 from Sony and he’ll eventually collect two pensions from his acting career. He’s also got $28,000 in equity in his 2009 Chevrolet Corvette and the IRS owes him a $30,000 tax refund.
