The Latest On The Hayden Panettiere Scandal

The Latest On The Hayden Panettiere Scandal


Nashville star Hayden Panettiere began dating
real estate agent Brian Hickerson in the summer of 2018. The relationship reportedly started after
Hickerson, quote, “saved” her from swarming paparazzi. Almost immediately, the pair started making
headlines for all the wrong reasons. Now, the newest reports say that Panettiere
plans to relocate across the country just to get away from him. The problems seemed to start for Panettiere
and Hickerson back in November of 2018. According to a report in Us Weekly from that
month, police in Greenville, South Carolina, responded to a domestic assault call at the
home of Hickerson’s father. One of the responding officers claimed to
have witnessed Hickerson chasing his father through the kitchen of the residence. His father reportedly appeared to have blood
on his face when officers arrived. Before entering the residence, officers were
greeted at the door by Hayden Panettiere herself, whom officers described as being in a frantic
state. The official police report stated that both
Panettiere and Hickerson admitted that they’d been drinking that night; according to one
of the responding officers, “[They] were adamant that they were fine and
did not need our assistance.” All of this happened just months after the
pair were first linked. Ten days after that incident, friends and
family of the former Heroes star allegedly aired their concerns. According to Us Weekly, one unnamed source
said those close to Panettiere believed that the relationship was, quote, “not a healthy
situation.” That same month, however, Hickerson told Access
the exact opposite: “Just to be clear, Hayden’s friends and family
are not worried about her at all. Hayden is happy and healthy and so is our
relationship. That is all I will comment on so please respect
my privacy.” Unfortunately, it seems as though the fears
allegedly suffered by Panettiere’s friends and family weren’t unfounded after all. On May 3, 2019, TMZ reported that Hickerson
was arrested for domestic violence in Hollywood after an argument between the pair took a
physical turn. He was charged for felony domestic violence
and released on $50,000 bond. According to Radar Online, Hickerson allegedly
struck her three separate times in the face over the course of two days. Panettiere’s alleged injuries included a bloody
nose, multiple bruises all over her body, and a bite wound. A source told People at the time: “Hayden knows Brian has a bad temper and can
be controlling, but there is an extreme attraction to it. […] Those close to Hayden are more worried
than ever about this and his temper. But Hayden is taken with him. She thinks he is what she needs in her life
now.” Repeated calls from family and friends urging
to Panettiere break it off with Hickerson have allegedly fallen on deaf ears. A source told People that her inner circle
really wants her to leave Hickerson, and are baffled why she hasn’t been able to end this
relationship. The source said: “Her friends and family have been worried
about her for quite a while, and things seem to have gotten worse. She needs to do some soul-searching […] It’s
a sad situation.” Panettiere’s personal life will apparently
continue to get dragged into the spotlight, because in July 2019, Brian Hickerson hired
high-profile lawyer Shawn Holley to represent him, Radar Online reported. The famous lawyer has represented the likes
of O.J. Simpson, Lindsay Lohan, and Kim Kardashian over the years, so we can expect that this
case will be tabloid fodder as it continues to unfold. “It’s very difficult for me to leave my house
without being followed or harassed.” Luckily, according to a source speaking to
Radar Online in August, 2019, Panettiere is removing herself from Hickerson with plans
to relocate across the country to New York City. The source explained: “After all the drama and public attention
in L.A., she wants to leave all the bad memories behind. […] Hayden loves New York. She is comfortable there, and grew up around
there.” The move may also turn out to have an extra
silver lining for Panettiere. As Radar Online noted, a New York address
would make it easier for the star to visit her daughter Kaya, who lives in Europe with
her former fiance. Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Nicki Swift videos about your

  1. Hi

  2. Hopefully Hayden is ok. No one deserves domestic abuse.

  3. who loves nicki swift? hayden panettiere is beautiful.

  4. Have mercy, y’all. I’ll never understand the need to put your hands on someone else out of anger or spite.

  5. I had no idea any of this was going on. I didn’t even know she wasn’t with her daughters father anymore 😩

  6. I clicked on this because I miss Nashville 😭💖

  7. 😄😄😄😄😄

  8. hope H.P. doesn't pay lip service to the help and actually takes it. Lots of DV victims don't get that chance.

  9. "Save the cheerleader, save the world".

  10. Wow I honestly thought she was still with Vladmir the Russian boxer.

  11. Poor girl can't catch a break.

  12. Ain't that the girl from um?? What's the show called?

  13. Why are some females so incredibly stupid?!

  14. Why is her daughter not with her?

  15. Its sad beucase alot a gurls dont make it out this situation alive. Im gonna pray for her

  16. I honestly had no idea any of this happened. I hope Hayden manages to get out of this situation!

  17. Why would you report that she's moving to NY to get away from an abusive controlling ex? Ex's can fly too. He'll just go to her. Reporting like this is dangerous and BESIDES I might as well read the story on Radar Online since that's the only source you kept citing.

  18. These two needs to break up because thier relationship is toxic

  19. Wow! GET OUT NOW BEFORE UR A STATISTIC!! I ALMOST WAS!

    On the other hand…..how is it easier to see her daughter in EUROPE by living in New York?! Lmao….I don't see the connection.
    And WHY doesn't SHE have her daughter??!!

  20. Poor Vlad she left him for this douche…

  21. I hope she is ok 💞

  22. She needs to focus on supporting her child and not some fucking guy. He needs to be put in hip and she needs to be with her daughter. Period

  23. Uhhhmmmm…. nobody cares.

  24. she reminds me of the mother of dragons

  25. It's hard to leave someone who is controlling… they can make you think it all you or your fault.. I know having been through it, I was told it was all in my head.

  26. "Hayden knows Brian has a bad temper and can be controlling but there's an extreme attraction to it." sis…. no….. this is how women end up dead.

  27. Greenville Sc has one of the highest domestic violence rates in the USA. I feel bad for her.

  28. Oooooooooooooook, when her and klitschko break up..🤔

  29. Today is her 30th birthday

  30. lack of self respect can be a bitch better to get it when your younger

  31. Abusers isolate their victims.
    All predators do. Hope she can make a clean break.

  32. See, it doesn’t matter how much money u have, u can still be an ABUSER😬🥵
    I had my fair share and u cannot tell just by looking at them. Mine happened to be Big Guys so it was ruff

  33. I want to know who all these "anonymous sources" are.
    Is it you?

  34. I am honestly hoping that Ms. Panettiere gets the help she needs and deserves. I have to wonder why the daughter is not with her mother, though. Yes, it is stereotypical for the mother to have legal custody of the children following a break-up, but it is certainly not unheard of for the father to have custody. I am just curious as to WHY that is…

  35. Nicki S…..The story is why doesn't she have her child?????

  36. she's under the D influence .. no doubt

  37. theres pathetic dumbasses that stay together just because of gossip and nosey fukkrs and cause their embarrassed either by choice of one or both the unhappiness and infidelity continues it gets worse even leading to much much 🗡🔫🚬🔪

  38. Thanks for the video, entertaining as always 🙃

  39. that's what i've always said… in their heart of hearts, abused women LIKE all the drama of an abusive relationship …. though they will deny it to the day they die

  40. I’m more shocked her daughter doesn’t live with her ~ but no doubt that she made a good decision for her daughter to be with her Dad, especially right now 🙏🏼♥️

  41. It’s called trauma bonding. She has trauma bonded with him. It’s extremely hard to break a trauma bond.

  42. Damn too bad I'm leaving NY maybe couldve got an autograph or something to that effect, probably shouldn't be broadcasting where she relocating since she's trying to get away from certain individuals

  43. The Good Student in real life.

  44. This why why fathers need to choose who their daughter is with

  45. Thought she was with klitchko

  46. Does anyone remember the problems with her Ex-husband? Hayden is attracted to abusive men and relationships like a Moth to a Flame.

  47. I was wondering why such a talented, obviously smart (per career choices), beautiful woman would end up in that kind of relationship. Then I heard the last bit. She doesn't have her child with her. Kind of hard not to beat yourself up (or let someone else do it) when a big part of your life is missing. I pray that she gets away from him and seeks help and love elsewhere and may she get close enough to be around her daughter.

  48. Hickerson better watch himself cos Vladimir Kilitschko will hit him so hard his head will fly off his shoulders!! 🥊💀

  49. I want to know why she’s not with her child? Why is her child halfway across the world in another country? As a mother I couldn’t live with that.

  50. I love you, Beth Cooper!

  51. Empathetic people are frequently drawn to sociopaths. It's a sad fatal attraction that says a lot about the condition of humanity

  52. Nicki Swift, great video! Enjoy your Wednesday! 💯🙏🙌

  53. She the britney girl fr ok m bring it on!!!!!!! I think

  54. Well by saying shes moving to NY, you just gave her abusive ex a first class ticket to her door. Congratulations. 👏You are a snitch.

  55. Hickerson the hick sounds like a nutcase!! I hope Hayden, her family, and his family can escape his madness.

  56. Is she still relevant?

  57. Just a thought …maybe if she concentrated on being a mother she might stay away from abusive men?

  58. Happy 30th bday Hayden u are still young with a lot ahead of you

  59. Kinda sad

  60. A bite wound ? This doesn't sound like domestic abuse, more like some kinky stuff they're into

  61. Good thing klitsko didn't hit her, she would be dead

  62. All the comments here asking why the daughter is not with Hayden… Judge Judy said fathers aren't second class parents, and I stand by that ruling.

  63. Wow. If you are attracted, and "drawn" to men that beat your ass – YOU have a serious problem!! SMH.
    I'll never understand why some women see this as an act of "love".
    She even lost custody of her daughter because of her issues with drugs, and because she chose this violent asshole over her own daughter!! Thats another thing I'll never understand. As a mom, HOW do you choose a man that beats your ass, over your own daughter! SMH!
    A man (boy actually) only ever laid a hand on me ONCE. I was 18, he punched me in my jaw, I hit him right back with my curling iron because I was holding it at the time fixing my hair, I broke his collar bone. I then left the house, and NEVER looked back. A man will NEVER lay a hand on me!
    Y'all girls need to RUN at the very first sign of violent behavior.

  64. 😢

  65. By, I’m going to Iceland to get away from you… 😮. Oh boy…..hittin?! Me=😡 👀😉🤔😳

  66. Birds of a feather…………..

  67. I bet after birthing Vladimir’s baby her vagina is tore up. She was as big as dudes arm.

  68. Where her baby daddy ,damn

  69. Didn't she scratch n sniff? I'm pretty sure she did…

  70. who?

  71. Who?

  72. If she's being abused and needs to move cross-country just to get away do you really think TELLING EVERYONE ABOUT HER ESCAPE PLAN IS A GOOD IDEA?!?!

  73. I never knew what that chick's name was till now

  74. I hope she okay

  75. " Save the cheerleader ; save the scandal " 😝

  76. Hayden is such a hottie!!!

  77. I ALWAYS ASK MYSELF HOW WERE THESE MEN RAISED. How did one turn into such monsters.
    I remember watching her on Guiding Lights. All this just is sad.

  78. Sounds like a Narcissist.

  79. Leave! Leave after the first time and don't look back!!!
    If you stay they start to think they own you and it gets more dangerous to leave.

  80. She needed to leave after the first time.

  81. It’s crazy, she used to be married to a heavyweight boxer, and he never beat her like this guy did.

  82. She has such a great 👍 butt ! Love ❤️ her

  83. That's not how u show love.

  84. Good thing she didn’t have custody of her child.

  85. I thought she was with Klitsco..that boxer guy?

  86. This "source" is an idiot. If Hayden is plotting an escape: (1) don't tell the media and (2) don't give away the destination. Js. I also find it telling that she doesn't have much custody of her daughter.
