In 2007, Hasselhoff played bass for the German crunk artist Tony Damager's song "Totalschaden". He also played bass in the video clip, along with Sido on drums and B-Tight on the guitar.

Hasselhoff guest-starred as himself in two episodes of the German soap opera Verbotene Liebe, which aired in June 2008 on German television channel Das Erste.[3]

Personal life[edit]

In 2006, Hasselhoff moved to Kreuzberg, Germany, due to his resentment of George W. Bush's politics.[4] He stated that he would not return to the United States as long as Bush was in charge. He was in a relationship with German actress Sina-Valeska Jung from 2006 to 2012.

Hasselhoff suffers from OCD, and has asked for his requested Skittles to be separated by color on at least one rider while on tour.[5] According to his episode of MTV Cribs, he also suffers from IBS.

In 2013, Ukraine banned Hasselhoff from entering the country for five years after he appeared to urinate on the Ukrainian flag at a concert in Kiev. A few days later, the band was due to perform at Russia's Kubana Festival on the Black Sea coast, but the gig did not go ahead. Instead, they were questioned by police and were ordered to leave Russia.[6]
