David Cassidy - David Cassidy Separated From Wife After Son Left Home
Veteran singer David Cassidy temporarily split from his wife after their son moved out of the family home.
The former teen idol has been married to singer/songwriter Sue Shifrin, his third wife, since 1991, and they share a child, Beau.
However, the pair hit the rocks after the 21-year-old left home to go to university, and Cassidy admits he considered filing for divorce before they worked out their differences.
He tells Britain's Daily Mail, "Sue and I have definitely gone through the fire together, and we had an episode not too long ago when we separated. It was a month or so after Beau moved out to college.
"Sue works and is a highly emotional human being, and I work and live at a high pitch, so with all those elements, plus with Beau moving out, we got to a point where we had to decide if we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together.
"We didn't consider divorce, it was more a question of would we be happier in separate residences? But, in the end, we just missed each other's love and support and company, and so we got back together again."
