The Breezy star was previously married to the late teen idol, David Cassidy. Cassidy was an actor and musician who first rose to fame on the musical TV show, The Partridge Family. He later went on to become a successful musician dropping 12 studio albums, three live albums, and six compilation albums.

Cassidy was so popular that his concerts often snowballed into riots. In fact, a stampede at his May 1974 concert in London injured 800 people and left one teenage fan dead. Kay Lenz first met Cassidy in the year 1977. They quickly fell for each other and tied the knot on the 3rd of April that same year.

The couple’s union lasted for six years and they split in December 1983. Lenz has never disclosed the reason for the divorce.

Since her divorce from Cassidy, Lenz is yet to remarry but has stuck to just regular romantic relationships.

How Kay Lenz Spent Her Early Life

Kay Ann Lenz was born on the 4th of March 1953 in Los Angeles, California. Her father, Ted Lenz was an actor, radio and TV announcer, writer and producer. Her mother, Kay Miller Lenz, was a radio engineer and model whose photos once adorned the bottles of Miller High Life Beer.

Lenz’s parents first met in San Francisco in 1945 and got married three years later on an L.A. radio show known as The Bride and Groom. Kay Lenz thus grew up in L.A. and started acting when she was just a baby.

In fact, her very first role was a bawling infant on the TV show, Hollywood on Television, in 1953. Following this humble debut, Lenz went on to appear in a string of movies and TV shows during her childhood and her teenage years. She, however, did not abandon her academics as she temporarily withdrew from acting, from ages 15 to 19, in order to complete her diploma.
