David Hasselhoff Relapses and Is Hospitalized

10/9/2007 7:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has confirmed that David Hasselhoff has been hospitalized, as first reported by the National Enquirer.

Rep Judy Katz tells us that the Hoff did have a relapse and is in the hospital, but is doing fine. In an exclusive statement, Katz tells us "David had a brief relapse and immediately recognized the importance of addressing it with the assistance of his doctors. He is doing fine and will be back home in the morning".

As for how this will affect his custody case, sources say the children had been in ex-wife Pamela Bach's care for the last six weeks as he's been out of the country in Romania shooting "Anaconda 3."

We're told mediation is scheduled for Thursday.

We last saw the Hoff last Thursday night, outside of Koi with one of his daughters.

Entertainment stars are put on pedestals as if they are something special. They have the same pain, anguish, problems as we average people have. When they fall from grace, its because of the pressure that is put on them to succeed - which most entertains can't cope with. I feel sorry for the entertainers that put their careers as the number one priority in their lives and fall into destructive behavior when thing aren't going well. We all have "lows" in our lives. They can't be on top forever. Grow Up!!

The hospital is the last place to go to get well - stay home in bed if need be!

Eat organic - filtered water - exercise every day - sleep 7 hours - have fun!

He's an alcoholic plain and simple. A recovering alcoholic can always fall off the wagon. These kid's need to be with their mother.

Stop glorifying stars who are losers. The press needs to stop the press and stop rewarding bad behavior. The press makes a loser out to be a hero. The public needs to wake up and start banning stars (picketing their movies and cds)...stop watching their tv shows if the star is a LOSER, a drunk, or a druggy. STOP the press and promoting these people. The public needs to wake up. We can change these people's careers and let's all band together and boycot the LOSERS.
