David Cassidy Is Suing Sony Over Patridge Family

David Cassidy Sony

David Cassidy is suing Sony for money. Money from The Partridge Family.

But get this — David says that Sony has used his image on merchandising without his permission for FORTY YEARS.

At what point should you put a stop to something like that? Are we missing something, and are you required to wait for 40 years before you can take someone to court over this??

According to the suit, Cassidy signed a contract with the production company behind the show in 1971 — guaranteeing him 15% of net merchandise revenues for the use of his image or likeness and 7.5% for all other PF merch.

"The Partridge Family" was only on the air for four years — from 1970 to 1974 — but over time, Cassidy claims the show raked in nearly $500 million in profits from board games, lunch boxes, magazines, comic books and a laundry list of other swag.

To date, Cassidy claims he has only been paid $5,000.

If they're in the wrong and haven't been paying him, then yeah, we hope you get your money, David.

But why wait so long to complain of breach of contract and fraud? Wouldn't "being paid" be something you want as it should be happening? Or were you waiting until you could get a lump sum for the past 40 years?

Something's weird here, you guys!

    So what does the "Patridge Famiy" have to do with it? Is it some kind of Audrina thing? How the hell can he sue over that? Did they put a David look alike in it? Or are you just hiring illegals to edit for you again?

    He's probably broke and looking for income.

    Hope he gets his money. On a more gossipy note, I am amazed at his interviews over the years. Since the mid to late seventies to now, he has such a big ego. Granted, he was incredibly popular in the seventies according to Rolling Stone but that was many years ago. I guess his ego has been stroked routinely since then. He has a talented daughter that he didn't raise but I think he paid child support.

    GAY. But, I bet he F$cks a lot of the girls who are now women in their 50s who idolized him when he was a teen sesation, but for PAY now !

    He looks and sounds like a total alcoholic now. If it's not alcohol it's pills or something. I met him little over a decade ago and he seemed healthy and sharp. Today he slurs and is all glossy eyed. He looked that way on Trump's show too. That's a false ego. He can't accept he's not the biggest thing anymore. Who knows maybe he is owed money or maybe he's doing it to get attention. He did an interview about it today and he wasn't even clear about it. So yes very weird.

    I'm pretty sure Justin Bieber is the David Cassidy of this generation, poor guy…

    Probably looking for more plastic surgery money. Just say NO! to looking like a freak David.
