This is worrisome. Life & Style magazine has learned that Hayden Panettiere could barely keep her eyes open after a recent wild night out in West Hollywood with her bad news boyfriend, Brian Hickerson. Now, Hayden’s pals are urging her to get help… again.
“Her family and friends are worried about her. Hayden’s been drinking too much and acting out,” confessed a source close to the Nashville star, whose three-year-old daughter, Kaya, lives 6,300 miles away in Ukraine with her former fiancé, boxer Wladimir Klitschko. “Wladimir was a calming influence on her. Now that he’s not in the picture, she seems to be losing control,” the source added.
For those of you who are unaware, Hayden and Wladimir split back in August after spending nine years together. Hayden’s mom, Laura Vogel, spoke with Radar Online at the time to reveal what lead to her daughter’s breakup. “[I] think there are a lot of changes going on in her life. But I think they’re positive changes. And I think that she’s taking some time,” she said. Hmmm, sadly it seems those “positive changes” fell by the wayside.
While Wladimir once focused on Hayden’s well-being, her new beau has only encouraged the 29-year-old’s toxic behaviors. Shortly after she began seeing Brian this summer, a photo surfaced online of the barefoot blonde vomiting over a railing while the hunky aspiring actor sat on the stairs outside Gladstones in Malibu, holding her purse.
According to reports, Hayden chugged several Long Island iced teas before dinner was even served. Additionally, an eyewitness said that Hayden “didn’t know where she was going and then ran down to the beach.” Yikes.
“Everyone in Hayden’s inner circle is saying the same thing: She needs to get it together,” noted the source, “for the sake of her health.”
