Hayden Panettiere splits from boxer boyfriend

Friday May 13, 2011

Hayden Panettiere is single again after splitting from her Ukranian boxer boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko.

The 21-year-old Heroes star and the 35-year-old heavyweight champ had been dating for two years but revealed to People magazine that they hoped to stay friends.

"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” she said.

But with Hayden based in Hollywood and Wladimir in Europe, distance became one of the key factors to the split said the boxer.

"We had a great time together, but it's not that easy to manage a relationship between two continents.”
