Hayden Panettiere: I’m Still Single
After years of always having a man at her side, Hayden Panettiere is embracing her single status.
In December, the Nashville star split from boyfriend of more than a year, New York Jets wide receiver Scotty McKnight. And though they never tied the knot, breaking up in the spotlight felt no simpler than divorce.
Celebuzz of being single. “It’s so interesting being in the industry where you’re with somebody, and it’s almost like getting married because it’s like signing this contract. When you split up, it’s like getting a divorce.”
And Panettiere has had her fair share of heartbreak.
Before McKnight, she dated Ukrainian heavyweight boxer Wladimir Klitschko for a year. Back in 2008, she was on the arm of her Heroes costar Milo Ventimiglia, following her split from Laguna Beach alum and MTV VJ Stephen Colletti. But Panettiere, 23, has learned from the ups-and-downs of her love life.
But for now, Panettiere isn’t confining herself to those rules of Hollywood. “Things aren’t defined for me,” she said. “I’m living. I love people in my life. That’s the best thing for me.”
