Samantha Fox says she was sexually assaulted by David Cassidy in 1985.
The onetime topless model, who recorded the 1987 pop-dance hit "Touch Me (I Want Your Body)," says a couple of years before her mega-single, Cassidy hired Fox to appear without clothes in the video for his song "Romance." Both appeared naked from the waist up.
In her soon-to-be-published memoir Forever, Fox recalls Cassidy as a "first-class creep." As cameras rolled, the onetime teen idol pressed up against her -- with an erection. She felt "disgusted," but Cassidy "seemed to be deliberately drawing out the photoshoot."
Later, Samantha and her father met David in a London restaurant known for its celebrity clientele -- where she says he followed her into the restroom, grabbed her breast and put his hand up her skirt -- an attack she halted by kneeing him in the crotch.
Just 19 years old at the time, Fox was "shocked" since she "had a big poster of David Cassidy on my wall and I used to kiss him every night before going to bed."
With her revelation about to go viral, Fox tweets, ''Just to let you all know, my book was completed a year ago. I am not jumping on the bandwagon! R.i.P. David Cassidy. Love Samantha."
