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.

And yes, a person originally chooses to take that first drink- but family history, surroundings and social situations play a part in it as well.

Yes, Mr. Hasselhoff has a drinking problem, and yes, he has marital problems. He is no different than any other individual in this world. The reality is that accepting the problem and getting the right treament is the only way to beat the disease. I have been lucky, husband has been sober 21 years and no relapse. Some others have to struggle but supporting him instead of baggering and cutting him down will not help. So I hope he has family and friends to give him the support to overcome this illness. Has anyone out there ever try quitting smoking? It is just as addictive and difficult. Like the old saying goes, "People in glass houses need to watch where they throw their stones" Keep on trying Mr. Hasselhoff and the best of luck to you on your recovery. "One day at a time"

Hassehoff is a big pile of crap, and not to mention a disgusting drunk. And a judge gave "HIM" custody of those girls? I guess it pays to have friends in high places. He has a relapse , yeah right, why not call it what it really is , He got disgustingly drunk like in that video. He is a SICK SICK man. Everybody "SHOULD HASSEL THE HOFF" That's the only way this sick and disgusting bastard is going to get any help.
