David Hasselhoff set tongues wagging regarding his sobriety Thursday night when he made a slurred speech at the European Music Awards in Germany.
Dressed in a sparkly sequin jacket the Hoff cut a dashing figure, entering the stage and singing along to the overheard music.
Hasselhoff took to the mic and slurred through his short speech though, informing the crowd “I’m not responsible for the wall coming down, the East Germans are responsible for the wall coming down.”
Hasselhoff has struggled in recent times with his fight to remain sober. As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported in September, the star was recently rushed to the hospital with alcohol poisoning, the second time just this year.
People close to Hasselhoff say that he is in denial about his severe alcoholism. “It’s sad,” a source told RadarOnline.com. “He needs help and he’s in denial.”
