During the more than two-year war of attrition with his ex-wife, Pamela Bach, rumors of David Hasselhoff’s rampant alcoholism sprung up and stuck. Back in 2007, a YouTube video that David’s daughter made of her dad drunkly slurring while eating a hamburger became a sensation, and made David enter rehab in December of 2007. Some sources claimed that David had been struggling for years, and that the divorce had sent David into some kind of self-destructive tailspin. Other claimed that all of the bad press was all part of Pamela Bach’s smear campaign. Back in May of this year, there were rumors David had to be hospitalized for alcohol poisoning – and now it’s happened again. Radar is reporting that David was taken, by ambulance, to a hospital after going on a hell of a bender:
David Hasselhoff was taken by ambulance to a hospital because he again has alcohol poisoning, RadarOnline.com learned exclusively.
The Hoff was taken from his home to an Encino, CA hospital Sunday afternoon after 911 was called.
Sadly, Hoff was hospitalized with alcohol poisoning in May.
And RadarOnline.com has also learned exclusively that the actor has been hospitalized with alcohol poisoning more than five times during the past few years.
The Hoff had been drinking for more than a day this time, a source told RadarOnline.com. He recently wrapped taping for America’s Got Talent and shortly after went on a bender.
Hoff was drinking vodka once again before his latest emergency. At least two people were home with him and one of them called 911.
Hoff has consistently been in denial about his severe alcoholism say people close to him. He denied that it was alcohol poisoning behind his hospitalization earlier this year but the details of his story changed as more people confirmed it.
“It’s sad,” a source told RadarOnline.com. “He needs help and he’s in denial.”
It’s very sad, and I suspect that David is in denial about his alcohol problems. The fact that he’s still dealing with this stuff after being publicly humiliated two years ago shows (to me) that he hasn’t taken his recovery seriously at all. Will this be the “rock bottom” David needs to take his alcoholism seriously? Probably not. If this really is the fifth time he’s been treated for alcohol poisoning, something tells me a stomach pumping and an IV drip isn’t really doing the job.
