Hayden Panettiere

Celebrity fans today are like no other. Thanks to social media, tabloids, and paparazzi, there seems to always be a way to connect with stars and keep tabs on their every move. Sometimes it’s a good thing, but other times it can be harmful. One product of this trend of increased insight into stars’ lives is that fans take notice when something seems strange or off. In this case, it’s Hayden Panettiere’s relationship friends and fans are worried about.

Distance From Daughter

The Nashville actress recently gained some attention when she was featured on a cover story of Us Weeklmagazine. Details of the story point out the distance shared between Panettiere and her four-year-old daughter, Kaya, over the past six months. In 2018, Panettiere, 29, split up with her then-fiance Wladimir Klitschko, 42. The couple had been together for nine years. Their daughter is currently living with Klitschko, a heavyweight champion boxer living in Ukraine. Klitschko is considered to be one of the best heavyweight boxers in history. In 1996, he won an Olympic Gold Medal in the super-heavyweight division.

Those close to the matter say that Panettiere knows that Kaya being with her would not be in the best interests for her child right now and that she is currently in a “sad situation”.

After the split, Panettiere began dating Brian Hickerson back in August 2018. Hickerson is a South Carolina agent who also acts. His only acting project so far is a film titled “M.F.A.” where he starred alongside Clint Eastwood’s daughter, Francesca Eastwood. Hickerson also works as a real estate agent. In the past, Hickerson was also linked to Baskin Champion, an Instagram model.

Over the past year, Hickerson and Panettiere have made multiple appearances together. However, to some, the relationship seems to be somewhat tumultuous, so friends and family are now expressing concern.

Putting Family First

Much of the speculation surrounds the health and dynamic between the duo. According to ET, friends are “more worried than ever” about Panettiere. Most of the concern seems to stem from Hickerson’s reputation in Hollywood as “bad boy,” having been arrested multiple times. Multiple outlets have reported that Panettiere’s friends think that Hickerson can be controlling and possibly not the best influence.

Of course, the most important thing in any family is the health and happiness of those involved, including Panettiere’s daughter, Kaya. Panettiere told Us that she and her ex Klitschko get along and that co-parenting is going well. Previously, Panettiere has been open about her struggles with postpartum depression after giving birth to Kaya in 2014. It’s a topic an increasing number of female celebrities are starting to open up about and something that is important to talk about. According to Us Weekly, Klitschko is extremely protective over their daughter. Although Panettiere is welcome to see their daughter, he will not allow Hickerson to be around her.

Possible Concerns Over Career

Hayden Panettiere is most known for her leading role in the TV show Nashville as Juliette Barnes, as well as her starring role in Heroes as Claire Bennet. However, Nashville, which was her latest acting project, ended in 2018. She hasn’t been featured in any movies or TV shows since, which may be why some fans seemed concerned about her well-being. It’s not uncommon today for fans to start questioning the personal lives of their favorite celebrities if they notice them stepping away from the limelight.

Recently, Connie Britton, who was Panettiere’s co-star on Nashville, told Us Weekly that they no longer have a strong connection, nor have they kept in touch since Nashville ended.
