The "Baywatch" actor is asking a judge to cut off spousal support to Bach, from whom he divorced in 2006, reports tmz.com.
Hasselhoff said in his legal documents that he is getting to the age where retirement should be looming. However, the 63-year-old actor says he is looting his retirement account because his USD 112,000 monthly earning is not enough to cover his expenses and spousal support.
He has been paying USD 21,000 a month for nearly 10 years. He claims his ex-wife has made absolutely no effort to become self-supporting as she is a talented actress and producer who could easily get a job.
Hasselhoff and Bach tied the knot in 1989 before splitting in 2006. They are parents to two daughters 26-year-old Taylor Ann and 24-year-old actress Hayley Amber.
Hasselhoff has been dating 34-year-old Hayley Roberts since 2011.
