A video that aired Thursday on several syndicated entertainment shows, depicts an apparently inebriated David Hasselhoff, clad only in blue jeans, lying on the floor of a room and clumsily eating a hamburger. In a statement, Hasselhoff said, "The tape was never meant to become public, but got into the hands of individuals who are not worthy of mentioning, who maliciously released the tape for their own self purpose." On the tape, one of his daughters is heard reproving him about his drinking. "I am a recovering alcoholic, " the statement also said.
