Hayden: Through the Years
A look at Hayden Panettiere's style evolution.
Hayden Panettiere may claim she’s single, but Celebuzz has learned that the Nashville star  is back on the arm of her ex Wladimir Klitschko.

In fact, the 23-year-old blonde beauty  — who just split from NFL star Scotty McKnight — recently traveled all the way around the world to Dubai with Klitschko.

“She was shopping at Mall of The Emirates, and Wlad was with her,” said eyewitness Zina M., who asked to keep her last name anonymous. “Hayden even leaned in to peck him.”

That may come as a surprise to some fans: At the recent Golden Globes, Panettiere had told Celebuzz that she was without a man. Oops!

“She more like nuzzled him, because you can’t really kiss in public in Dubai,” Zina continued. “They’re definitely more than friends.”

“Wlad was sitting down listening to his iPod and she was shoe shopping. No one recognized Hayden, but there are so many Russians in Dubai, so they all recognized him!”


According to Klitschko’s Twitter, the 6-foot, 6-inch Ukrainian boxing champ spent a few days in the Middle Eastern city, even posting a photo at the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa. Meanwhile, TMZ had spotted the 6-foot, 6-inch Ukrainian sports star picking Panettiere up at a Florida airport on Jan. 11.

After a well-publicized romance, the twosome had broken up in May 2011. Just a month after they called it quits, Panettiere was already being linked to New York Jets player McKnight.

Do you think Hayden and Wladimir should officially get back together? Sound off below!
