America's Got Talent judge David Hasselhoff clearly has a talent...for bad publicity, if nothing else. According to reports, the Baywatch bruiser and popular-in-Germany crooner had too much to drink and slugged the doctor at his London hotel after returning from Simon Cowell's birthday bash.
The semireliable New York Post and the oft-dubious U.K. Sun report that Hasselhoff was actually trying to slug his assistant for calling the doctor. According to a source close to the actor, "David was furious and lashed out at him—but he mistakenly hit the doctor."
The source added that, "David is very hard to handle when he drinks, often very emotional and aggressive. On this occasion he...was becoming a real pain to the staff."
Hasselhoff reportedly had to be locked in the hotel basement until an ambulance arrived, according to the Sun. He was later taken to London's Capio Nightingale Hospital, where he reportedly spent two nights in a private room before being released yesterday. Stay tuned.
