Hayden Panettiere granted a restraining order against ex boyfriend Brian Hickerson

The couple called it quits in June - months after he was arrested for domestic violence


Hayden Panettiere has been granted a restraining order against her ex boyfriend Brian Hickerson.

According to The Blast, the actress “has filed to register an out-of-state restraining order” that she recently obtained against Brian.

The 30-year-old is now asking the court to honour and actively enforce the order in Los Angeles, where she is currently living.

Hayden reportedly ended her relationship with Brian in June, months after he was arrested over a domestic violence incident on Valentine’s Day.

Brian was arrested by officers at around 2.30am, after he allegedly struck Hayden “with a closed fist on the right side of her face” during a row at their home in Wyoming.

Officers said her face appeared red and swollen, and she also had a scrape and swelling on her left hand.

Hayden’s boyfriend was booked for domestic battery, and they also charged him with interfering with a police officer after he allegedly refused to identify himself.

That wasn’t the first time Brian had been arrested for domestic violence.

In May 2019, the LAPD arrested the real estate agent for domestic violence after he and Hayden got into an alleged “physical altercation” at their home.

The actress was allegedly found with “redness” and “marks” on her body.

At the time, Brian was ordered to stay 100 yards away from Hayden, however, the case against him was later dismissed in September when the district attorney’s office failed to “secure a material witness.”

The news comes after Hayden recently shared a sweet snap with her 5-year-old daughter Kaya, after she made her Instagram page public.

Hayden shares Kaya with her ex-fiancé Wladimir Klitschko, and it’s understood the 5-year-old lives with her father in Ukraine.

The Nashville star and the former world heavyweight boxing champion were in a relationship from 2009 until 2011.

The couple then rekindled their romance and got engaged in 2013, and welcomed their daughter in December 2014.

Four years later, Hayden and Wladimir called it quits, and Hayden started dating Brian Hickerson in 2018.
