David Hasselhoff's two daughters videotaped the actor after a bout of drinking.
The video, which aired May 3 on TV tabloid programs, shows the actor appearing inebriated. Clad only in blue jeans, he clumsily eats a hamburger while daughter Taylor-Ann, 16, reproves him for drinking.
In a May 3 statement, the 54-year-old Hasselhoff says "I am a recovering alcoholic. Despite that I have been going through a painful divorce and I have recently been separated from my children due to my work, I have been successfully dealing with my issue. Unfortunately, one evening I did have a brief relapse, but part of recovery is relapse. Because of my honest and positive relationship with my daughters, who were concerned for my well-being, there was a tape made that night to show me what I was like. I have seen the tape. I have learned from it and am back on my game."
The tape was reportedly made about three months ago at the former Baywatch actor's home in Las Vegas, where he is appearing in a stage version of "The Producers."
He filed for divorce last year from his wife of 16 years, Pamela Bach, citing irreconcibable differences. Bach counter-filed, also citing irreconcilable differences. The couple have two daughters: Taylor-Ann, and 14-year-old Hayley.
