David Hasselhoff: Drunk and in Denial

Footage of David Hasselhoff drunk, incoherent and on a hotel room floor in Las Vegas has surfaced.

Three months ago, Hasselhoff had his 16-year-old daughter, Taylor, record him drunk and barely able to feed himself.

In the video, Taylor begs, “Dad, look what this is doing to you. You have to stop drinking alcohol, promise me you won’t drink anymore. The doctor’s coming over early … if you have any alcohol in your system, you’re gonna be fired (The Producers Musical) from the show.”

Hasselhoff‘s reps recently sent out this statement: “I am a recovering alcoholic. Despite that I have been going through a painful divorce and I have recently been separated from my children due to my work, I have been successfully dealing with my issue. Unfortunately, one evening I did have a brief relapse, but part of recovery is relapse.

“Because of my honest and positive relationship with my daughters who were concerned for my well being there was a tape made that night to show me what I was like. I have seen the tape. I have learned from it and I am back on my game. I thank God for the love and concern from my daughters. The tape was never meant to become public, but got into the hands of individuals who are not worthy of mentioning, who maliciously released the tape for their own self purpose. I hope that someone else will learn from the tape, as I have.”

    It is sick that nothing is private anymore. We don’t need to see his struggles like this. This is beyond betrayal of whoever released this tape. I mean wow lately it’s been nothing but trying to embarrass celebs. We know they are human and no one is perfect but my god I’ve kinda had enough with it. I really just want to see their (not hoff’s work but other celebs)work and not what happens behind closed doors.

    This is a private family family and this video does NOT belong on the internet. How sad for all involved.

  • Lessa

    *private family matter*

  • Jess

    Shame on the people who released this.

    Not so happy about it being posted here either. Nuhuh.

  • baifan

    This is cheap, not the video but the acts of those who have published it.

  • Mel

    How proud he must be !! Frankly at this point – I don’t think anyone cares. I feel bad for the daughters !!
    DISGUSTING …………..

  • gloria D’Alessandro

    This is so private and an intrusion into his personal life. The poor man is having his struggles and it’s being publicized in a most hurtful way. His daughter apparently recorded this and it is a private family matter, not to be aired in public. How did this get leaked?
    David is a poignant figure and a man who is suffering. How terrible and inconsiderate for this to be published and aired. He is paying a high price for stardom. No on should be subjected to this humiliation.
    Where is the compassion for a man that is trying?

  • Hey Now!

    His ex leaked it. I think she is lying a hell of a lot and trying to make her and thier daughters seem like victims but to me He is the victim in this. He asked his daughter to tape it if he ever relapsed and she did. He did it so he can see how hurtful he is to himself and his children. I doubt he has done everything his ex is claiming. His wife wants money she wants everything and she is the one who has been keeping his children away from him how else is she gonna hurt him? by finding and releasing this tape. It is truly sad she would stoop to this level. I hate x-wives who thieve and lie and try to humiliate their x husbands just so they can get all the money because got forbid they get 3 grand a week in alamony and child support they just wouldn’t be able to survive(boohoo). I mean it really is hard to find true love in the entertainment business because you never know who really ” loves” you. Surely they’d pop out a baby and manipulate them into thinking they love them and then bam a yr or so later they get a divorce take all the money and the public makes fun of celeb marraiges. Hell If i was in that position I’d be depressed too.

    I can’t understand what he replied to her last question. Anyone?


    very sad.

    The Hoff is over. Too bad he drowns himself in alcohol.

  • bdj

    These celebs are putting too much of their family business in the media, via tape or telephone msgs. It would be nice if they seek rehab, anger management and jail time without a full blown press coverage and scandal all over the media.

  • Ashley

    This broke my heart. He’s human and prob experiencing pain and feelngs of failure that have drive him to the bottle. I feel so badly for him. So badly.

  • jep

    For God’s sake. Some of you look at his man in judgement?

    Good luck to him defeating alcoholism. Someone else’s pain and struggles shouldn’t be entertainment for others.

    The Insider can go to hell. Wonder if Pat O’Brien has any tapes lying around. Oh, yeah.

  • Raichill

    Tragic. This man has already embarrassed himself enoguh over the years. he doesn’t need any help in further ruining his life.

  • ELO

    Sad….and PRIVATE !

  • Hmm

    The leak is undeniably wrong. On the other hand, maybe this will be the final straw for him. The embarrassment is sometimes just what it takes to get people to finally let it go.

  • Liss

    I can’t help but think he leaked his own tape, just to keep his name in the news. I’m sure his daughter’s did not leak it, he’s the only one left.

  • april

    sad, sad, sad…Hasselhoff and Baldwin going through painful divorces and the kids do suffer the shame and guilt of their parents problems.

  • langtry

    What liss said. In the world of Z-List stardom (which Hasselhoff occupies) there is no such thing as bad publicity.

  • Jessica


    Don’t come to a gossip site and be disgusted by its contents! This is exactly why people come here. Actors know what the press is. Though its been a little more aggressive lately, people know going into this business that this is what happens. Don’t get loaded on camera, keep it, and be famous, with your ex having a case of the crazies! These kids have every advantage other than total freedom. So what. Some people die when they are 3 because their stomach has eaten its organs for nutrients.

    Look at the press in England. They killed a Princess. They are serious mtfkers. Whiny Americans.

    I’m saying a prayer right now for him and his family
