Hayden Panettiere Opens Up After Boyfriend Is Arrested Again For Domestic Abuse

As we previously reported, Hayden Panettiere’s boyfriend, Brian Hickerson, was arrested for the second time in nine months for abuse.

The Nashville star took to Twitter on Sunday to share a photo of her ex-fiancé, Wladimir Klitschko, dancing with their 5-year-old daughter, Kaya, writing: “Best father ever.”

In the comments of that photo, a Twitter user asked whether the pic was taken “before or after he beat you,” to which Hayden clarified, “Wrong guy. Klitschko’s are legends. That’s my CHAMP.”

A second fan asked, “Hayden, how are you doing are you okay?”

The actress responded by writing, “Always good.”

Of course, Brian was arrested on February 14 for domestic battery and interference with a peace officer.

He allegedly hit Hayden “with a closed fist on the right side of her face,” leaving her “red and swollen,” according to court documents obtained by the Jackson Hole.

We’re praying for you, Hayden.
