LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Reports swirling around David Hasselhoff drinking over the weekend are false, a source close to the star told Access Hollywood.
Radar Online’s reporting of a Hasselhoff psychiatric hold is “completely untrue,” the source told Access.
The source confirmed that the star had spent a day and a half in the hospital for a medical condition. Alcohol was not involved. He was released on Sunday.
“He is home, working in his home studio, recording” with his two daughters, the source told Access.
A Hasselhoff lawyer confirmed that the star was home.
“David is totally fine and home with his kids,” his lawyer said in a statement to Access.
Radar Online previously reported that the “America’s Got Talent” judge was hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Friday morning after suffering seizures and held on a 5150 — an involuntary psychiatric hold — before being released on Sunday afternoon.
In related news, Hasselhoff’s ex-wife, Pamela Bach, was arrested on suspicion of DUI on Saturday at 8:03 PM — and she told TMZ that Hasselhoff had indeed recently been in the hospital.
“I am remorseful and mortified,” she was quoted as telling TMZ. “I am going through a really difficult time between David being in the hospital and dealing with the divorce.”
Bach was released on Sunday from the Valley Jail in Van Nuys, Calif., and told the site she would be attending an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting later in the day.
Bach’s arrest on Saturday was the second alleged offense this year. She was previously arrested in March.
In August, Bach pleaded no contest to one count of DUI and received 36 months of probation, $3,900 in fines and was ordered to complete a 90-day alcohol program, attend one Alcoholics Anonymous meeting for 153 weeks and complete 350 hours of community service.
When contacted by Access Hollywood on Monday, a rep at the LA City Attorney’s office said they were not aware if Bach had completed the terms of her sentence yet. Additionally, the rep said Bach could face jail time if she violated the terms of her probation.
Bach is due in court on December 24.
