Hasselhoff To Sue English News Paper
David Hasselhoff is suing an English tabloid newspaper after it claimed he went on a drunken rampage at the Wimbledon tennis championships earlier this month (JUL06). The 53-year-old actor has battled alcohol problems in the past, but he insists the reports were untrue. His decided to sue after his children started asking him about his behaviour. Hasselhoff says, "It makes me angry when my children ask me about it. When my child says to me, 'Dad, were you drunk at Wimbledon?' that is when I am suing, I called the attorney and said, 'Sue the s**t out of them!'" The ex-Baywatch hunk was reportedly ejected by security guards after he tried to force his way into a private players' bar at the London club while intoxicated, claims that were denied by the All England Lawn Tennis Club. In a further attack on the British Press Hasselhoff adds, "These papers print garbage just for the hell of it and it is beyond upsetting. It not only affects my reputation, it hurts my children."
