Celebrity Hasselhoff, Bach Free to Marry Others The America's Got Talent judge and Pamela Bach end their status as a married couple By Stephen M. Silverman Published on July 27, 2006 07:20 AM Share Tweet Pin Email David Hasselhoff and his wife of 16 years, Pamela Bach, ended their status as a married couple Wednesday, but their divorce proceedings continue. “I’ve always loved him and always will, and have love and compassion for him,” Bach said in a statement. “It’s a very, very sad day, but a day to move on.” Hasselhoff, 54, filed for divorce on Jan. 12; Bach, 43, also filed her own divorce papers. Both parties cited irreconcilable differences. In March, Bach filed a restraining order against her ex, alleging domestic violence, which Hasselhoff denied. In May, the court awarded them joint custody of their two teenage daughters, Hayley, 13, and Taylor-Ann, 16. Reps for Hasselhoff did not return calls for comment. Hasselhoff – or “The Hoff,” as he is now called in his role as a judge on America’s Got Talent – starred in Baywatch from 1989 to 2000, and in the ’80s series Knight Rider. Bach regularly appeared on the TV show Sirens and occasionally on Baywatch and Knight Rider.
