This is video of David Hasselhoff completely drunk and slurring his words at his Las Vegas home. It was taken by his 16-year-old daughter Taylor three months ago, and in it you can hear her begging him not to drink anymore or he’ll be fired from his show. David released this statement in response to the video:
“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.”
As much as I want to rip on The Hoff, this is just incredibly sad. Like the time I was standing outside all alone, looking through the window of a family opening presents on Christmas morning. And there was a guy behind me playing the violin. And it was raining. And also I was an orphan. And my pet dog had just died. Did I mention I was also missing a leg? Because I was also missing a leg. Ahh, the memories.
