Cassidy, 65, bought the house in the ritzy Fort Lauderdale neighborhood in 2001 for $1.1 million, and he estimates he spent about $1 million more in renovations.
Over the last few years, he’s hit some sour chords.
Aside from declaring bankruptcy in February, the former teen heart-throb was sentenced to a $900 fine and community service last spring for a 2013 drunken-driving charge in upstate New York.
Last year, Cassidy’s wife filed for divorce after 23 years of marriage, and he entered alcohol rehabilitation after being charged with driving while intoxicated in Los Angeles in 2014.MORE NEWS: Arrest Affidavit: Accused Hollywood Cop Killer Jason Banegas Claims He Was Trying To Kill Himself In Struggle With Slain Officer Yandy Chirino
