Are Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko Over?
The actress was reported to be seen holding hands and dancing barefoot with an unidentified man in the parking lot of a Los Angeles hotspot Thursday night—despite the fact that, as far as we all know, she has been engaged to fiancé Wladimir Klitschko since 2013. People reported on the tryst, offering up a slate of photos as proof (see them all here).
According to Panettiere’s own mother, Lesley Vogel, the 28-year-old actress has indeed ended her engagement: “There are a lot of changes going on in her life," her mom noted.
“But I think they’re positive changes. And I think that she’s taking some time,” her mom Vogel told RadarOnline. “She needs to take a little bit of a break and make some decisions on her own of what she wants to do. So I think she is in a very good place.”
Panettiere was most recently vacationing with Klitschko (who is a Ukrainian professional boxer) and their daughter, 3-year-old Kaya, in Barbados in February. Radar also claims they were in Greece last month together. The pair began dating in 2009, so have a long history under their belts.
The series finale of Nashville aired on CMT on July 26. The show ran for six seasons, ending with Panettiere's character Juliette embarking on a new life, with her love Avery (Jonathan Jackson) returning to her.
