The estranged wife of David Hasselhoff has filed for a court order on a claim of domestic violence by the former Baywatch star.
Less than a month after she filed for divorce, actress Pamela Bach, 42, made the claim against Hasselhoff, 53, in Los Angeles Superior Court.
At a private hearing, Bach also asked for a temporary restraining order against the actor, but a judge denied the request, instead instructing the two to stay away from each other.
Hasselhoff’s lawyer Melvin Goldsman said: “The court indicated that she should stay where she is and he should stay where he is.”
Documents relating to the hearing have been sealed by the court to protect the pair’s two teenage daughters and their privacy.
Bach was granted custody of one daughter while Hasselhoff was given custody of the other, publicist Judy Katz said yesterday.
Hasselhoff filed for divorce in January, citing irreconcilable differences after 16 years of marriage.
Bach filed her own divorce papers a day later, also citing irreconcilable differences.
Hasselhoff played lifeguard Mitch Buchannon in Baywatch from 1989 to 2000. He also starred in the 1980s TV series Knight Rider, in which his character, Michael Knight, teamed up with a talking Pontiac Trans Am sports car to fight crime.
Bach appeared in the soap opera The Young And The Restless and in numerous episodes of Baywatch and Knight Rider.
