Hayden Panettiere obtains restraining order against ex Brian Hickerson

Hayden Panettiere was granted a restraining order against ex-boyfriend Brian Hickerson on Tuesday, Page Six confirmed.

The “Heroes” star, 30, filed a request for an out-of-state restraining order that would protect her in California, where she now resides. Panettiere’s request comes five months after Hickerson was arrested for domestic battery after allegedly assaulting her on Valentine’s Day in Wyoming.

In April, Hickerson reportedly pleaded not guilty to the charge. A trial is scheduled for September.

It was the second domestic violence arrest for Hickerson, who allegedly assaulted Panettiere in May 2019 during an altercation at their home after a night of drinking. He was ordered to stay 100 yards away from the “Remember the Titans” actress.

In early June, Panettiere seemed to allude to having moved on from the relationship when she showed off her “newish” neck tattoo depicting the Eye of Ra, which is an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection and royal authority.
