David Hasselhoff's spousal support payments to ex-wife Pamela Bach are halved to $5,000 per month as former couple reach legal agreement
David Hasselhoff has had his spousal support payments to ex-wife Pamela Bach cut by half.
The former Baywatch star, 65, previously requested the monthly sums he gives his ex-wife - who he divorced in 2010 - be reduced from $10,000 to zero.
But the pair have now reached an agreement, which will see Bach, 55, receive $5,000 a month from him, according to TMZ.

The new pact will begin on December 1 and end no later than November 30, 2020.
David divorced the actress in 2010 after 27 years of marriage. They share daughters Taylor, 27, and Hayley, 25, together.
The actor had initially wanted his former spouse to go back to work and support herself.
But she claimed it was too tough to get work as an older actress 'in the current market'.

Bach said she had made 'good faith and reasonable efforts' to land work in the acting industry, in legal documents filed by her legal team.
She claimed her age and 'the current market for actresses' plus the time she had spent away from the entertainment business as a homemaker had made it next to impossible to get a gig.
Bach said she did find some work on UK reality show Celebrity Big Brother and follow up Big Brother's Bit On The Side in 2011, but that's it.
Her last TV role was in Missing in 2003, while 2002's More Than Puppy Love marked her most recent big screen appearance.

Bach said that it was a travesty to cut her off, claiming David made around $1 million a year.
She also claimed she spent her prime earning years taking care of their home and raising their daughters so David could pursue his career.
At the time, Bach claimed that the actor still owed her $1 million to balance their separation of assets when they divorced in 2006.
She said he got a boat, jet skis, two trusts with a lot of assets and their home while essentially all she got was $325,000 out of the house.

Hasselhoff initially paid $21,000 per month in alimony support before getting the amount cut in half last year.
David, who made a cameo appearance in the rebooted big-screen version of Baywatch this year, has been with Welsh former shop assistant fiancee Hayley Roberts, 37, since 2013.
David and Hayley met in Cardiff Bay, Wales, while he was filming Britain's Got Talent in 2011.
The actor's first marriage was to actress Catherine Hickland - who guest-starred on his show Knight Rider - from 1984 to 1989.
Life's a beach: The former Baywatch star (pictured in character in the 1990s) claimed in court documents that Pamela had displayed a 'failure to make any efforts to become self supporting'
