David Hasselhoff out of the hospital
U.S. actor and TV personality David Hasselhoff was in the hospital Sunday, but did not suffer an alcohol relapse as has been reported, his attorney said Monday.
Hasselhoff, who reportedly has had a drinking problem for many years, is a judge on the popular reality competition series
America's Got Talent, which wrapped its most recent season last week.
However, Hasselhoff's attorney, Mel Goldsman, told People.com the reason for the trip to the hospital was
all a misunderstanding.
David was being treated for an inner ear infection and had a bad reaction to his medication over the weekend, Goldsman said.
He lost his equilibrium and it left him dizzy. This was not an alcohol relapse. David was taken to Encino Hospital on Sunday and released within the hour. He's fine now and looking forward to doing his jury duty this week.
