The Partridge Family launched David Cassidy into stardom. He played Keith Partridge on the show and became an instant celebrity. He was a teenage heartthrob that captured the hearts of many fans. However, it wasn’t always wonderful. After the show ended, David actually sued Sony for exploiting his image.

His take was that Sony made tons of money from his image and he received nothing. During the show, David struggled with the amount of fame he was receiving. After the show ended, he tried his hand at a solo singing career and did things to change his image including posing nude for Rolling Stone magazine.
