Hasselhoff Deemed Unfit to Fly

7/27/2006 11:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The same day his divorce became final from Pamela Bach, David Hasselhoff was banned from boarding a British Airways flight after showing up to the gate intoxicated, according to The Sun newspaper.

After reportedly downing bottles of beer and shots of whiskey at a first class lounge at Heathrow, British Airways staff told Hasselhoff he was unfit to board the plane, which The Hoff agreed with.

The Sun also says Hasselhoff told the airline staff he was upset about his messy divorce from his wife after 16 years.

A British Airways spokesperson tells TMZ: "A male passenger was denied boarding flight BA279 as he was deemed to be unfit for travel. He was reassessed by British Airways staff and he was accepted for travel on flight BA283, which left two hours later."

Ok, you DO know this is just a stupid celebrity dish forum where people blow off steam about useless crap?

It isn't like everything posted here gets seprinted out and faxed to him. I'm pretty sure he'll be ok no matter what is said here.

And...don't YOU have anything better to do?

I was married 16 years, and you didnt see me getting drunk the day of my Divorce.
at least he had the common sense to accept the fact he was drunk and didnt cause a problem not like some other actors, the name Mel comes to mind,

Medication? Yeah, right. He was bombed. But it's our fault. As long as this country continues to worship its celebrities, people like The Hoff and Mel Gibson will continue to get preferential treatment.

Come on media muckrakers...give the "Hoff" a break. If anything he was not a jerk to airport authorities in London. What if it had of been Richard Burton, Peter O' Toole, or even Truman Capote? I don't think people who are going thru a divorce, sit around drinking Mr. Pib's do you? He didn't pull a Gibson ego-tirade, on anyone that I have read about. Bottom line...he's a celebrity....who kept his cool. Oh...I also forgot about Diana Ross....take a note from the "Hoff"...be cool and treat others with some courtesy.
