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.

I haven't had a nice thought about this jerk since his last day as "Snapper" on "Young And The Restless".

Of course he relapsed, he's sick. His illnesses unfortunately aren't limited to alcoholism. Glad he got hospitalized but I'm not buying the bag of baloney again that it's he sought this road of recovery for it's true purpose.

Mr. Hasselhoff has one agenda: his immediate image. Now that his abuses are more obvious to his public is he taking strides to correct the "image" damages. It's certainly not for actually targeting the disease he's been ignoring for decades I promise you.

He's an ass, in every realm of the word.

He's reportedly an alcoholic in recovery who conveniently relapses then checks into hospital to CYA. He makes a chump out of the CA judiciary. Is he a masterful manipulator, liar, user, addict?

Dog is a racist mutt!    

Perhaps the most valuable part of this story is that Anaconda 3 should be avoided at all costs!!! Good to know!

Obviously he wanted to be drunk more than he wanted to be sober. Using the excuse, hey I'm an alcoholic, this is what alcoholics do is slip..nah, I don't buy that concept..it is plain and simple, getting drunk far out weighed wanting to be sober for him.
Get it together Hoff!

HEY! DON'T HASSLE THE HOF! Don't you think The Hof and George Michael would make a pretty pair? No? Ok, how about The Hoff and Boy George? Boy could nurse him back when he goes on a nasty binge with tea and lemon, and maybe even polish his rocket while he's peeling grapes for him.....

Someone pissed for your stupidity    

In regards to comment #4 magic man... PLEASE don't use the word RETARD that is very offensive especially if you have someone in your family who has this medical condition and I DO, if you would take the time to get to know someone who has this condition you wouldn't call someone that because I bet you they are smarter than you are.

NO matter how much fame or money they have they will always will feel empty in their heart's the devil will take posses of them and make them do negative things with out self control as everyone could see how this people live no one is perfect not one only the Farther in Heaven
That is why Jesus Christ came to the world for the sick,and the lost and people with issue's.
What good is to get all the fame and gold from the world and losses your soul in the process.
we all need God we are the church we are the temple our self we must build a relationship with God daily love one another .
Jesus Christ is the light and the way no one come's to the Father Only by Him.

There is no relapse to being a drunk! He needs to visit Betty Ford's clinic. He should visit his daughters, but they should not live with him until he gets control of his problems. This behavior must be heart breaking for his family.

If any of you idiots did a little research, you would realize that alcoholism is a scientifically proven disease. Once you've been diagnosed as an alcoholic, you then begin treatment. Alcoholics suffer for the rest of their lives. Relapse IS a part of the process and while some will never do it, the majority of recovering alcoholics do. But I'm glad that all you perfect people think that it is nothing serious. I hope you never have a family member or friend experience it b/c you will be in for a rude awakening. Know what the hell you are talking about before you open your mouth.

So come on to those of you that don't believe it is a disease- you probably still believe the earth is flat.

I feel sorry for David; I met him a few years ago in Aspen. He is a nice person and talented.
