Bach's Hasselhoff attack
09:30 06 October 2006
David Hasselhoff's estranged wife has attacked him over his behaviour during their daughter's recent alleged suicide attempt.
At first it was reported that 14-year-old Hayley had attempted to slash her wrists but it was later revealed she had merely suffered a nasty scratch while playing with her pet cat at her mother Pamela Bach's Californian home.
Hasselhoff was said to have telephoned the emergency services after his oldest daughter, Taylor Ann, called him to say Hayley had been injured. It is believed the actor's call was interpreted as a suicide bid by the operator.
His spokesperson, Judy Katz, said at the time: "Upon boarding an overseas flight, Mr Hasselhoff received a call from his oldest daughter alerting him that his younger daughter had received a severe scratch while playing with the dog and cat at her mother's home.
"Mr Hasselhoff called 911 to report the incident and asked if they would send someone to check up on his child."
Bach has now furiously refuted her husband's claims, denying their eldest daughter called him and denying he was boarding a plane at the time.
Bach claims Hasselhoff was actually near the house at the time of the accident.
In an email sent to London-based entertainment news agency BANG Showbiz, Bach's spokesperson fumed: "I represent Pamela Bach. Why are you buying Judy Katz's story? DID DAVID SEE HIS DAUGHTER - NO - AND HE WAS IN TOWN. 10 MINUTES away from the house.
"And Taylor Ann did not call him."
