The Top 5 Celebs on the Verge of Meltdowns

Apparently the "America's Got Talent" judge was actually aiming for his assistant, who enraged the Hoff by calling the MD. The Sun said the hotel dealt with the drama by locking Hasselhoff in a basement until an ambulance arrived to take him to the hospital for a two-day stay. While Hasselhoff's reps didn't respond to requests for comment, when the actor arrived back home in Los Angeles Friday, he cryptically told reporters, "It's all good."

It's not the first time Hasselhoff has acted out after drinking. Last month he was reportedly hospitalized for alcohol poisoning after his 17-year-old daughter called paramedics to their home (though his reps contended he needed help because of an ear infection, not alcohol.) In 2007, both his daughters filmed him drunk, on the floor, limbs flailing, attempting to eat a hamburger.

Lily Allen

Problem: Joaquin Phoenix/Jay-Z syndrome.

Video: Singing Amy Winehouse turns to hip-hop raps.

Lily Allen is known for her cutting lyrics and charming melodies. Her debut album sold more than 2.6 million copies and earned her a Grammy nomination. So why does the British singer want to quit music and embark on an acting career?

At the end of September, Allen posted this message on her anti-music piracy blog It's Not Alright: "I have not renegotiated my record contract and have no plans to make another record." She then deleted the blog altogether.

While Allen's publicist refuted the singer's assertion, telling reporters outright, "she is not quitting pop music," according to the Daily Mail, Allen is now spending time preparing for her role in the London play "Reasons To Be Pretty" and mulling a more robust career in acting and/or fashion design.

Jon Gosselin

Problem: Where to begin?

Jon Gosselin has an angry ex-wife, a 20-something-year-old girlfriend, a compulsion to party that some frat boys would envy, and a habit of talking about all of these things, in lurid detail, to the press, ad naseum.

VIDEO: The View talks about Millburn High Schools so-called slut list.

Oh yeah, and he has eight kids.

Prescription: Press stops here. (For the moment, anyway.)
