David Cassidy said he didn't have dementia and was still drinking in the last years of his life, according to an A&E documentary airing next week.

People magazine reported on Wednesday that the former teen idol called producers of the documentary after he fell ill and told them he had liver disease. In the recorded conversation, Cassidy said there was no sign of dementia and it was "complete alcohol poisoning."

The former "Partridge Family" star said he had lied by telling friends and family he had stopped drinking.

Cassidy died of organ failure in November at age 67.

Producer John Marks told People that Cassidy wanted to be honest once and for all. The issue appears on newsstands Friday.

A&E will air "David Cassidy: the Last Session" on June 11.
