Former model Samantha Fox is claiming in a new book that David Cassidy once followed her into a women’s restroom, forced his tongue down her throat, grabbed her breasts and stuck his hand up her skirt.

Fox was a big fan of Cassidy’s since he appeared in the 1970s television show “The Partridge Family,” but when she was hired to appear in a music video from his single “Romance,” the model turned singer realized that he was a “first class creep.”

Fox, who was 19 years old at the time, appeared topless for the video shoot and claims that Cassidy had an erection throughout most of the process.

“Whenever he pressed himself against me, I could clearly feel his d**k,” Fox told The Daily Star on Sunday. “David seemed to be deliberately drawing out the photoshoot, which took an eternity, and he had an erection the entire time–something he did absolutely nothing to hide.”

After the shoot Cassidy invited Fox and her father to join him for dinner and despite the singer creeping her out on set, she agreed to go because she didn’t want her dad to think that anything had happened.

“In the middle of dinner, I got up to go to the toilet, and as I was standing alone in the women’s toilets, washing my hands, the door flew open and David Cassidy came storming in,” Fox recalls.

“Before I really had time to process what was happening, he had pushed me up against the wall and his hands were all over me. I shouted: ‘Get off me, David!’ in an attempt to stop him. But instead, he just stuck his tongue into my mouth and shoved a hand under my skirt, while the other kept a firm grip on one of my breasts,” she claims. “I reacted quickly and instinctively by bringing my knee upwards, striking him right in the balls.”

“David jerked back with an ‘Ouch!’ and grabbed his crotch with both hands. I took a deep breath and shouted, ‘Get away from me!,'” Fox continued. “David looked up at me, he seemed almost surprised, and then I elbowed him in the face.”

Fox returned to the table composed and didn’t tell her father what had happened because she knew how he would react.

“Back at the table, I sat down without saying a word. If I had mentioned what just happened to dad, he would have knocked his lights out. In that moment, the handsome, sweet guy from ‘The Partridge Family’ had transformed into a first-class creep who wasn’t worth the risk of a stretch in prison.”

Cassidy died due to liver failure earlier this month. Fox came forward with the allegations against the late actor and singer in her new autobiography called “Forever,” which comes out next week.
