    After only six months of dating, Hayden Panettiere told Us Weekly in February 2019 that she hoped she'd tie the knot with beau Brian Hickerson.

    In May 2019, Hickerson was arrested for domestic violence in Los Angeles, following an argument between himself and Panettiere. However, charges were dropped, and the pair resumed their relationship. 

    On February 14, 2020, Hickerson was arrested again for domestic violence - this time in Jackson, Wyoming - after allegedly hitting Panettiere with "a closed fist on the right side of her face." A source close to the Nashville star worried, "It's unlikely this will be enough for Hayden to break it off, permanently."
