Hasselhoff, Bach settle postdivorce terms


David Hasselhoff and ex-wife Pamela Bach have agreed on postdivorce terms that include joint custody of their teenage daughters, Hasselhoff's attorney confirmed Monday.

The former "Baywatch" star and Bach were divorced in August 2006 after more than 16 years of marriage. After months of negotiating custody and financial arrangements, a deal was struck Friday, according to attorney Melvin S. Goldsman.

"David is pleased to have the matter behind him," Goldsman said Monday. "He wants to move on with his life."

Goldsman declined to spell out the terms of the settlement concerning Bach's request for more spousal and child support.

Improving relations between Hasselhoff, 55, and Bach, 44, led to the revised custody arrangements and his willingness to let her to stay in their San Fernando Valley home until it is sold, Goldsman said.

Under a June court order, Hasselhoff had sole custody of the couple's daughters, Taylor, 17, and Hayley, 15.

Lawyers for Bach were not immediately available for comment Monday. However, Bach's former lawyer, Mark V. Kaplan, said he was pleased to learn of the settlement.

"I'm glad for her, I'm glad for David and I'm glad for the kids that they all have this high-conflict matter behind them," Kaplan said.
