David Hasselhoff's Ear Problem

David Hasselhoff claims he was rushed to hospital because of an ear infection.

The former 'Baywatch' star claims rumours he was taken to Encino Hospital by paramedics because of a heavy drinking session on Sunday (20.09.09) are untrue and says he was taken unwell after mixing two medications.

David, 57, has been taking Antivert for a severe earache along with anti-alcohol drug Antabuse - which deters alcoholics from drinking.

His attorney Mel Goldsman said: "David was being treated for an inner ear infection and had a bad reaction to his medication over the weekend. He lost his equilibrium and it left him dizzy. This was all a misunderstanding. This was not an alcohol relapse."

It had been reported the actor had collapsed "drunk" at his Californian home and was found by his 17-year-old daughter Hayley.

Paramedics were called and David was taken to a local hospital by ambulance.

He left the medical facility on Sunday night.

The 'Knight Rider' star has publicly battled alcoholism for several years and has been hospitalised for alcohol poisoning five times previously.
