Former Baywatch star David Hasselhoff is a recovering alcoholic and there are countless stories of his excess before he kicked the bottle into touch.
So it was probably a little reckless of OK magazine to assert that the Knight Rider star was “off his face” in an LA nightclub and unsurprisingly the Hoff didn’t take too kindly to this.
And, having been assessed independently, he has now won undisclosed damages from OK! magazine, because he was actually drinking energy drinks and celebrating with his family.
As stupid as this was, you have to feel a little sorry for OK! There may well have been countless occasions in the past decade or so when Hasselhoff was indeed “off his face”, but they don’t seem to have been captured on camera. The one time photos of the TV legend are published, he’s as sober as proverbial court official.
If only Amy Winehouse could say the same thing…
