The Hoff's Under A Psychiatric Hold!

| Filed under: The Hoff

wenn2572529dh__opt.jpg

After suffering a reported alcohol-related seizure on Friday night, The Hoff has been placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold at Cedars-Sinai!!

Our poor Hoff!

It seems Hasselhoff was at the tail end of a "several-day-bender" when the former Baywatch star was rushed to the hospital because he began seizing.

The doctors at Cedars-Sinai agreed that The Hoff should be placed under a 5150 and 5151, which will keep the struggling alcoholic under psychiatric evaluation for the next 72 hours.

Sources close to David say they're hoping his most recent hospitalization will lead to The Hoff being places in a "lock-down rehab facility" so he can finally give alcohol the boot.

We're rooting for ya!

    aww poor guy I hope that he pulls through.

    quite frequently in our world. :( HOPE U
    GET BETTER!

    You know what pisses me off is hospital employees being on the take and giving out celebrity medical news. It is a HIPPA violation and none of our business. Electronic charts log in who is looking up celebrity info and those who are not direct care givers risk disciplinary action or even firing. But the hospital grapevine is huge and stuff gets out.
    This info may have ben OK for public consumption given the legal actions to place him on hold. In any case I hope this is the signpost he needs to get himself involved with some program.

    Oh like you care!.

    i believe the word is "seizing" not "seizuring".



  7. 7

    It's not "seizuring"… its seizing!

    this really does make me sad. he seems like a genuinely good person. get it together, hoff, or else what will middle-aged europeans do without you?!

    much love!

    isn't keeping him locked up for 72 hours the very definition of "hassling the hoff"? i'm sorry, but california law states you may not hassle the hoff. please release him.

    I hope he gets better too. He certainly is good looking. I hope he's not suffering from some repressed sexual desire. So unnecessary. I think he should use one of El Lays' Medical Pot Clinics. I'm pretty sure that would help. That and a good nurse.



  11. 11

    Bout time he got some help



  12. 12

    I am afraid to say that he may not be able to recover from his severe case of alcoholism, since he is still in denial over the disease. Until he admits that he is an alcoholic there is really no saving him. I am quite shocked that he would still deny that he is an alcoholic when he has so much evidence that speaks to the fact that he is one.

    alcoholism is a serious, life threatening disease that affects ALL members of a family. i hope david gets the help he needs and i'm happy Perez finally is taking the disease of addiction seriously and not calling him a "hot mess" or "train wreck" like he does the female stars with addiction problems (double standard, i know, but its better than nothing!).



  14. 14

    We are pulling for you Hoff!!! Get well man.



  15. 15

    Nice hair.
    .
    Get well.



  16. 16

    He has to want help and want to change or this is just going to be endless cycle that will only stop when he is dead.
    He should do it for his daughters.



  17. 17

    What I find so interesting here is that someone who is clearly endangering their health and choosing to injure themselves with drug/alcohol abuse have enough vanity to undergo plastic surgery to keep them *facially* younger looking.



  18. 18

    The sad truth is that you can't help someone who doesn't want to be helped.



  19. 19

    Just goes yo show…Ya can have money, fame, etc…BFD if you have issues..



  20. 20

    Fix yourself !



  21. 21

    only Kip can save him now…



  22. 22

    Jesus, I go on "several day benders" all the time and I don't end up under psychiatric hold…this guy is a rookie!



  23. 23

    this is very sad i do hope he gets better

    'Psychiatric hold,' would that equal drying him out and stabilizing his body? Any nurses in the crowd? I hope he beat this; his kids will always need him.



  25. 25

    If he stays in denial I predict he'll be dead before the New Year. The holiday season always escalates the abuse of alcohol. I think it's disgusting the way he keeps his poor daughter in the strangle hold of being his savior every time he plays this game. Let her go and grow up or get out. For real.



  26. 26

    Wish he'd just drop dead and be gone. He's a weak ass dickhead who cares about no one but himself



  27. 27

    I heard he does that anal bleaching thing.



  28. 28

    The Hoff in lock down to dry out. Good plan.

    Re: Big Black Dick – 29 No silly girl!



  32. 32

    toupe?



  33. 33

    Wow. He has a really bad case of alcoholism. How is he still alive?



  34. 34

    In non-celeb land, that's what happens if you attempt suicide. ! That is some serious shit and I wouldn't wish it on anyone. It's so sad to think this could be the end of the line for Snapper Foster. He's not young, but he's too young to die, damn it. He has been detoxed no telling how many times and he will not stay dry. I hope he is still with us this time next year. His daughters love him so much :( .



  35. 35

    It's about damned time! But what do you bet after he gets out, he heads straight for the sauce! Grrrrr…….!



  36. 36

    i think Pamela Anderson needs to put on the bathing suit, grab the dinghy, and run to his attention!

    Do I sense that he and the (ex?) wife just need to get back together already? They're both doing it. Smarten up and bury the hatchet. You can hold each other up.



  38. 38

    this is sad.. he is a mess lately and has hit rock bottom/ it must be tough having all these problems and have them exposed to the world. I hope he gets better for him and his kids.. I fell bad he thinks the ony thing he can turn to is the booze. get better hass



  39. 39

    poor old Hoff.. he's really fighting his demons isn't he?

    I heard though that he passed out through lack of blood to his brain… after using a vacuum man tool pump

    there's a film on youtube (search for hoff and pump) of him selling one back in the 80's

    it's a bit of fun (and a spoof, but an excellent one)

    get well soon David!!

    ap076
    Yup, you right, and I like the earlier post about him, where the neighbor says the paramedic told him about Hoff droolin and eyez rollin. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight!!! Isn't that what everyone does during the holidays?



  42. 42

    He needs to get back on the beach…



  43. 43

    Speaking of Pam and a life preserver, where ARE all his Baywatch buddies that he gave such a nice leg up to, anyway?There were a lot of people that got a good boost from Baywatch…might be nice if a few gave him a little support now.
