Despite reports coming out of David Hasselhoff's camp there's no denying that the Baywatch star was not only drunk Saturday, he was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and suffered alcohol poisoning.
Sadly, his daughter Hayley, 16, found him unconscious on the floor of his home in Encino, California.
Hasselhoff, who has struggled with alcohol for years much like the growing list of celebrity addicts, apparently has his enablers, er, spin team, who are being quoted as "sources" in other reports saying that the Hoff "regrets" drinking too much but is fine.
We agree, if "fine" is defined as now home from the hospital after being intoxicated to the point where he was MORE THAN FOUR TIMES the legal limit (which is .08).
Anyone remember that video, taken by his teenage daughter, of the drunk, shirtless Hoff eating a burger on the floor while cursing?
As bad as that situation was, Hoff was in even worse shape Saturday, sources tell RadarOnline.com.
His daughter Hayley called her mom after finding her dad unconscious. Her mother lives 10 minutes away in the Hollywood Hills and she rushed to the rescue and drove Hoff to the hospital where doctors yet again saved his life.
A source said a frightened Hayley kept “slapping her dad’s face” to keep him alive.
He's out of the hospital now and instead of owning up to his problem, he seems to be sitting back while his rep tells other outlets he "is fine and well and happy and is celebrating his father, Joe Hasselhoff's 80th birthday tonight at dinner... along with his girlfriend, Kimberly."
We think he's probably had enough celebrating.
Sources close to the situation are so outraged by the attempted coverup of Hoff's problem that they reveal to RadarOnline.com exclusively that Hoff has been treated for alcohol poisoning at hospitals MORE THAN FIVE TIMES!
And yet he and the spin team are still in denial.
