On May 3, 2007 a home video clip surfaced of Hasselhoff apparently in mid-stupor.
The video showed him shirtless, lying on the floor, drunkenly trying to consume a Wendy’s hamburger in a Las Vegas hotel room. His daughter Taylor Ann who shot the video can be heard saying ‘tell me you are going to stop, tell me you are going to stop’.
The daughter also warns her father he could be jeopardising his spot on the Las Vegas production of The Producers.
In the wake of the leaked clip, Hasselhoff issued a statement saying it was filmed by Taylor Ann so that he could see how he behaved when intoxicated and was deliberately released.
