Hasselhoff now threatens to headbutt ‘America’s Got Talent’ co-judgeApril 13th, 2009 - 2:44 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, Apr 13 (ANI): David Hasselhoff certainly needs to know about anger management, for once again the actor got in a fit of rage and threatened to headbutt a co-judge on a TV reality show.
The 56-year-old threatened to headbutt Piers Morgan in front of a stunned live television audience on the set of ‘America’s Got Talent’.
The Mail On Sunday newspaper in the UK reported that the former Baywatch star began “verbally assaulting” his fellow judge following a difference in opinion on a magic act.
“It all flared up over a husband-and-wife magic act. The couple had lost all their money in the recession and this was their last chance. Hasselhoff voted no and the audience went crazy booing him,” the Daily Telegraph quoted an audience member at the taping of the America’s Got Talent auditions in Miami, as telling the newspaper.
“Then Sharon Osbourne voted yes and so it all came down to Piers’s vote. He voted to send them through to the next round, the crowd went crazy, the couple’s kids came on in tears - and then Hasselhoff went nuts.
“He started yelling abuse at Piers, and Piers was giving back as good as he was getting, when suddenly David stood up, walked around the judges’ table and got right in Piers’s face.
“Then he threatened to headbutt him. He said it loudly and clearly and everyone heard him. David was out of control, shouting and swearing. It was a full-on verbal assault. He was hurling all sorts of abuse at Piers, who looked genuinely upset and was momentarily shocked into silence. He was shaking his head and just staring daggers at David,” the audience member added.
Only two years ago, Hasselhoff was accused of violent behaviour towards his former wife Pamela Bach. (ANI)
