Estranged Wife to The Hoff: "Up Your Ante"

10/12/2006 6:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David Hasselhoff's lavish lifestyle could come back to bite him in the swimming trunks. In court documents obtained by TMZ, Hasselhoff's estranged wife Pamela Bach claims during the marriage, the Hoff dropped a cool $100,000 a month on credit card expenses.

Bach is asking the judge to increase child support to $31,546 a month. Bach is also asking to increase her spousal support to $45,463 a month. A Hasselhoff rep tells TMZ that up to now the parties had an informal agreement in which living expenses were paid.

Bach says The Hoff has pleaded poverty in the divorce case, claiming to have made $5,001 a month for the last 12 months (we don't know where the one extra dollar came from). Bach scoffs at Hasselhoff's alleged income, noting he's been on a hit TV show ("America's Got Talent"), published a tell-all book (Making Waves) and has had plum roles in movies ("Sponge Bob Square Pants" and "Click").

Bach's lawyer quotes an article from PEOPLE in her court papers. Hasselhoff tells the magazine, "I could fly to the Eiffel Tower for lunch, have a croissant and come back and not worry about the price."

The Hasselhoff rep tells TMZ that the actor never claimed he made only $5,000 a month.
