Hasselhoff rushed to hospital with alcohol poisoning

David HasselhoffAmerica’s Got Talent judge David Hasselhoff was rushed to the hospital this past weekend due to alcohol poisoning. According to reports, his daughter Hayley found him on the floor unconscious in his California home on Saturday night. Sources claimed she immediately phoned her mother, Pamela Bach, who rushed him to the hospital while a frightened Hayley kept “slapping her dad’s face” to keep him alive. However, Hasselhoff’s lawyer is claiming these allegations are exaggerated, and that the report came from his ex-wife Bach, who is on the warpath and “in violation of the court’s order precluding contacting the media regarding her ex-husband.” According to TMZ.com, his blood alcohol level was not as high as the lethal amount of .39, but they report he was drunk nonetheless, and that a hospital trip had been “prudent.” He reportedly “walked on his own power” to his car, and was then driven to the hospital. Hasselhoff has battled with alcoholism for years, having been poisoned twice in three days in 2007. He checked into rehab for his addiction following previous hospital trips, and in 2007, a video surfaced of him drunk, which was recorded by his daughter. ~Meryl H.

    So much for “committing to and promoting” his daughter’s careers! Poor kids having to deal with his shlt all their lives.

    If it wasn’t for alcohol, outfits like the one he is wearing would never be purchased. Good thing that car drives itself.

    He can spin this negative publicity into a positive one by re-introducing his daughter’s duo act as “The Alco-Hoffs”! Might be just gimmicky enough to sway the record labels. 🙂
