The Hoff: Hassled But "Okay"

7/28/2006 5:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David Hasselhoff: Click to watchDavid Hasselhoff made headlines yesterday after he was reportedly banned from a British Airways flight. Though he was cleared on a later flight that day, rumors were swirling that Hasselhoff was too drunk to board the plane, the "America's Got Talent" host is taking charge, claiming it was his meds for his arm that caused the delay.

"I'm on a little bizarre medication but I'm okay ... I hurt it a little more in London this last trip ... It's just got a little bit of an infection."

The former "Baywatch" star's career has seen a resurgence lately, with both his hosting gig for the hit NBC show and movie roles in films like "Click," and with that comes more scrutiny from the press, something Hasselhoff understands comes with the territory.

"The more famous you get the more people want to print stuff about you that's not true. The truth is I'm a big guy, I respect myself, I've got the respect of my kids and I'm okay."

With his messy divorce from Pamela Bach Hasselhoff finalized this past Wednesday, The Hoff sees himself in a better place, "I'm happy to be here. I'm happy to be alive. I'm happy to be getting through all my personal stuff."

There you go again. Judging. Come on by the house David. You can have a martini with Mel and me. I'm sorry ole buddy, but I have to pull your keys too, just in case we have one too many. By the way, I need a friend that will pull mine for me, because if I drink the first one, it will be one too many, but oh what the heck. I'm not famouse, and it won't even make the papers if I get busted.

He is a half-wit loser. He was drunk trying to get on the plane, just like when he cut his hand while shaving???? Yeah, right. He should move to Germany where he has "fans" and leave America alone. Who is he to judge other people's talent when he doesn't have any to begin with? LOSER

Wow, Hass, I'd hate to be your PR person! If you got paid every time you made an ass out of yourself, you'd be able to get yourself one of those grillz all the cool guys are sporting.
