Embarrassing Celebrity Moment: David Hasselhoff Gets Drunk and Eats a Hamburger

Sometimes it takes a little video footage to help a loved one. That was the thinking behind the video David Hasselhoff’s daughters shot of him drunkenly eating hamburgers. In the clip, a shirtless Hasselhoff is lying on the floor, having a slurred conversation with his 16-year-old daughter Taylor-Ann, who is holding the video camera. She says, “Dad, you need to promise me you’re not gonna get alcohol tonight, OK, If you get alcohol tonight you’re fired from your show tomorrow. And a doctor’s coming over here in the morning to check your alcohol level and if there’s any alcohol in your system you’re gonna be fired from the show. Tomorrow. You hear me, No alcohol.” Hasselhoff responds, “OK.”

The tape hit the various entertainment TV shows and quickly made its way around the web. Hasselhoff released a statement in response, “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.”
