“I had a big poster of David Cassidy on my wall and I used to kiss him every night before going to bed,” she said to Daily Star Sunday.

“When he grabbed me and pushed his tongue down my throat, I just kneed him in the b*****ks and would still do that today.”

Shortly after the interview was published, she took to Twitter to explain that she always intended on going public with her allegations against Cassidy.

“Just to let you all know, my book was completed a year ago,” she said.

“I am not jumping on the band wagon! R.i.P. David Cassidy Love Samantha.”

Fans of Cassidy were quick to blast Fox on social media for selling the story so many years after the alledged incident took place.

One person wrote: “The accusation is sick and sad. To accuse a dead person is cowardly and offensive to real victims.”

Another comment read: “What an empty life. 32 years ago he made a pass at you. You rebuffed it. Now you’re getting notoriety from a dead person. You are a sad woman.”

Still, some people backed Fox’s claims.

One fan said: “Always with you, Sam,” while another simply said: “ImWithSam.”

Fox added: “My book is so much more than this story, but the press obviously picked up on that chapter as it’s so topical at the moment.”
