Cut Hoff the cash says star

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE -

DAVID Has­sel­hoff has sparked a fam­ily bust-up af­ter telling his ex-wife to find a job.

The Bay­watch star has launched a le­gal bid to end the £7,600-a-month sup­port he has been pay­ing ac­tress Pamela Bach since their di­vorce 11 years ago.

Court pa­pers re­veal she hasn’t been able to land a sin­gle role since ap­pear­ing as a con­tes­tant on Celebrity Big Brother in 2011.

Pam, 54, claims to have made “rea­son­able ef­forts” to get work but has been thwarted by “the cur­rent mar­ket” for much younger stars.

Her lawyers say it would be a “trav­esty” for “The Hoff” to cut her off fi­nan­cially be­cause she spent her “prime earn­ing years” run­ning their home and rais­ing their daugh­ters.

They also al­lege she is still owed more than a mil­lion dol­lars – around

£763,000 – by her ex from their di­vorce set­tle­ment.

The cou­ple’s lawyers are re­port­edly still in talks to try to reach a deal prior to a court hear­ing next year.

Ac­tress daugh­ters Tay­lor Ann, 27, and Hay­ley, 25, have “sided 100% with their mom”, ac­cord­ing to one pal who added: “They feel an­gry and hurt that their fa­ther wants to stop sup­port­ing her. “Pam gave up her own ca­reer to raise them so that David could pur­sue fame and for­tune.”

Tay­lor Ann fa­mously shamed Has­sel­hoff, now 65,

10 years ago when she re­leased a home video show­ing him so drunk he tried to eat a burger off the floor.

Spokes­men for Bach and Has­sel­hoff in Los An­ge­les de­clined to com­ment.
