Sorry, Hoff, You Weren't Princess Di's Cup of Tea

by at .

We never thought we'd say this, but: it's not a great time to be David Hasselhoff.

First, reports surfaced that the former Knight Rider and Baywatch star made up his daughter's suicide attempt. Now, it's becoming apparent that he may have imagined the crush Princess Di had on him years ago.

The butler for the late Princess of Wales seems to think so.

A couple weeks ago, Hasselhoff said in London that Diana "was smitten with me since I was so tall ... I probably would have gone after her if circumstances had been different."

Like, if she hadn't been a princess and you hadn't been a washed up 1980s TV star?

According to Paul Burrell, Di's former butler, however, Hasselhoff's talking complete and utter rubbish. Just like Nicole Richie every time she says she's healthy.

"There was never ever any hint of any date or romance between the two of them," said Burrell. "Such a suggestion is as far-fetched as a talking car called K.I.T.T."

Wow. Who knew butler's could be so witty?

Burrell stated that the young princes, William and Harry, were fans of Baywatch and that the Hoff sent them some autographed stuff from the show â€" including a picture of him in all his hairy-chested glory.

When Diana saw the photo, said Burrell, "I remember the princess laughing hysterically at the photo and turning her nose up."

Sorry, Hoff. If it makes you feel any better, we have the same reaction every time we look at a Kevin Federline picture.
