David Hasselhoff, who in May copped to his battle with the bottle after a humiliating video surfaced on the 'Net, has suffered a setback and was hospitalized earlier this week. "David had a brief relapse and immediately recognized the importance of addressing it with the assistance of his doctors," his rep tells TMZ.com. "He is doing fine and will be back home [Wednesday] morning."

In admitting to his addiction, the Hoff himself once said, "I am a recovering alcoholic.... Unfortunately, one evening I did have a brief relapse, but part of recovery is relapse." Shortly after that May incident, he was awarded primary custody of his and ex-wife Pamela Bach's two teen daughters.
