David Cassidy and his wife are ending their 23-year marriage with divorce.

TMZ said the couple were going their separate ways after 28 years together and one son, Beau, 23.

It said the pair had been living separately for four months and quoted Sue Cassidy as saying: "This has been looming for some time.

"I am truly heartbroken that our marriage is ending."

The divorce comes after Seventies heartthrob David, 63, was arrested in Southern California on suspicion of drink driving last month.

David, who appeared in TV hit The Partridge Family and was a recording star and teen idol, is reported to have been in rehab.

Sue was quoted as saying she was "glad David is getting the help he needs and I am confident he will come back better and stronger than ever."

E! News said that David released a statement saying: "It is very sad that Sue chose to take this approach. I have tried to resolve this amicably outside of the public eye.

"I have reached out to her with no response over the last three months. It's a sad day for me and for our son Beau."
