David Hasselhoff is in quite the financial bind!
According to legal docs, David is requesting a judge to put a stop to his expensive monthly alimony payments to his ex-wife Pamela Bach. The two divorced in 2006 after seventeen years of marriage and raising two daughters together.

Here's the crazy part — while spousal support is typically awarded to people who have trouble working (think Brian Austin Green's vertigo issue in his divorce from Megan Fox), Pamela has received $21,000 a MONTH for TEN YEARS despite her ability to find a job.
Ms. Bach once worked as an actress and a successful producer so it's a tad confusing why she needs such a big chunk of change… especially since the couple's two girls are legal adults.
To make matters more complicated, the actor claims his annual income of $112,000 a year isn't enough to cover the monthly payments in addition to his own expenses. D.H. also claims the hefty support is draining his retirement fund, making it impossible for him to quit working anytime soon.
What's interesting is that David has been more than generous to Pam over the years — he even bailed her out of jail back in 2009 when she was busted for a DUI!
Hopefully the 52-year-old and his ex will be able to work this situation out sooner than later. This predicament has gone on long enough!
