Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko Split!
“Even though we’ve decided splitting up is best for both of us, we have an amazing amount of love and respect for each other and remain very close friends,” Hayden exclusively told People.
Hayden and the Ukrainian heavyweight boxing champion most recently appeared together at the Tribeca Film Festival for the premiere of Klitschko, a documentary about Wladmir and his brother Vitali’s boxing careers.
Despite the split, Wladmir admits he has a great respect for Hayden and wishes her all the best. “We had a great time together, but it’s not that easy to manage a relationship between two continents,” he said. “I have a lot of respect for Hayden as a person and as a friend, and I believe we’ll keep our friendship even after the separation.”
