Hayden Panettiere was spotted partying with ex-boyfriend Brian Hickerson more than a year after her arrest for abusing the actress.
Panettiere, 32, and Hickerson, 32, arrived separately, and the former Disney Channel star left with Caroline D’Amore before her ex.
Hickerson was arrested in 2020 for assaulting Panettiere in separate incidents between May 2019 and January 2020. He was later sentenced to 45 days in county jail after arguably pleading two counts of injuring a spouse or girlfriend.
Panettiere publicly addressed the alleged abuse at the time.
“I am sharing the truth about what happened to me in the hope that my story will allow others in abusive relationships to get the help they need and deserve,” she said on Instagram to the time.
