America’s Got Talent judge David Hasselhoff was reportedly hospitalized on Sunday after drinking himself into a stupor at his home in Encino, CA. The Hoff’s daughter, 17-year-old Hayley Hasselhoff, allegedly called her mother Pamela and told her daddy was drunk off his ass.
A friend of PamelaÂ then put in a call to 911 and paramedics shortly arrived to cart David Hasselhoff off to the hospital. The Los Angeles Fire Department confirmed a person was picked up at Hasselhoff’s address and taken to the hospital, but refused to release a name. The actor was reportedly released from the hospital Sunday night.
This is hardly the first time David Hasselhoff has been hit in the face with the drunk. The America’s Got Talent judge and former Baywatch star has reportedly been hospitalized over a dozen times for drinking way, way too much. Sadly, it also isn’t the first time his daughter has had to clean up his mess.
In 2007, a video shot by Hayley Hasselhoff of her drunken dad ended up on the Net. The video showed an obviously wasted Hasselhoff lying on the floor eating a hamburger while his daughter begged him to get help.
Hayley posted the video online in an effort to shame her dad into getting help. Too bad Hasselhoff apparently didn’t get the message. Sadly for Hayley, it seems her dad cares way more about his drinking than his daughter.
* Update: David Hasselhoff’s rep released a statement to TMZ.com saying the America’s Got Talent judge was not drunk when he was taken to the hospital. Allegedly, he was just messed up from a combination of drugs for an ear infection and for his alcohol addiction. Yeah, sure, okay – if you say so…
