There can be no more denials.
David Hasselhoff told anyone who would listen Tuesday that reports of his hospitalization Saturday for alcohol poisoning were not true. Despite the fact that Hasselhoff is an alcoholic who is still drinking, many media outlets swallowed his story without checking the facts.
Now his ex-wife’s attorney has heard enough, and stepped forward to set the record straight.
RadarOnline.com broke the story that Hasselhoff was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center with alcohol poisoning after being found on the floor by his 16-year-old daughter Hayley. She called her mother Pamela, and they had to help the severely drunk Hoff to the car and then drive him to the ER. He spent the night in the hospital and had a blood alcohol level of .39, more than four times the legal limit.
Now attorney Robert Ackrich has come forward and told RadarOnline.com exclusively: “I am stating that the version of events regarding the recent incident involving David Hasselhoff is correct as reported by Radar.
“I view it that Mr. Hasselhoff’s daughter and his ex-wife saved his life by getting him into the hospital. This was a serious event.
“Any criticism of Pamela’s role in any of this is undeserved.”
Ackrich represented Pamela Bach in her divorce. He issued his statement confirming RadarOnline.com’s reports only after Hoff’s representatives bizarrely tried to change the focus of the story to Pamela, saying she was behind the reports. But that tactic failed as Pamela has refused to talk to ANY media and Hoff’s denials have changed day to day.
With his client being used as a pawn in an attempt to hide Hasselhoff’s excessive drinking, Ackrich has now set the record straight.
Sadly, Hoff’s representatives at first said he was celebrating his father’s birthday. They later changed their story and admitted he went to the hospital but said it was because he didn’t feel well. They finally admitted he had been drinking but then denied the seriousness of the incident.
Hoff also gave strange statements to media today saying there was no police report showing his blood alcohol level was .39. No one reported that there was a police report.
Hoff’s lawyers, parsing their words carefully, also tried to get rid of the incident and blamed it all on Pamela, whose role in the drama was to drive her drunken ex to the hospital after their daughter discovered him passed out on the floor, slapped him to try to wake him up and called her mother for help.
As RadarOnline.com reported exclusively, Hoff was foaming at the mouth, a sign of alcohol poisoning. RadarOnline.com also reported that he has been hospitalized for excessive drinking more than FIVE times in recent years.
Hasselhoff has finally admitted he was drinking Saturday, but is still in denial and he and his reps have made multiple statements trying to shift the focus to his ex-wife, despite the fact that she has refused to speak to the media all along.
As they have continued to deny the facts and bizarrely blamed Pamela, her lawyer had heard enough and spoke on the record, confirming the facts, reported exclusively – and only – by RadarOnline.com.
