[Blind Gossip] This very pretty actress has been around forever and has starred in more than one successful TV series.
She was recently involved in a physical altercation with a man.
Was this a one off?
Not even close!
She has a couple of issues going on. She has depressive episodes and she also has a drinking problem. She parties a lot and gets very mean and aggressive and physical. I’m not saying that any man has the right to hit her back. I’m saying that she is the instigator a lot of the time. When you put her together with a man who also drinks, it’s like putting a match to fireworks.
The drinking has apparently been an issue for years. Although it has not been part of any publicly released court documents, we have heard that it is the reason she does not have custody of her child/ren.

Actress: Hayden Panettiere
A couple of months ago, your friends at Blind Gossip told you that actress Hayden Panettiere no longer had custody of her child.
Hayden lost custody of Kaya – her daughter with boxing champion Wladimir Klitschko – because her drinking made her an unfit parent.
Panettiere’s inability to control her drinking has flared up occasionally in public. It also led her to date a man who also has a drinking problem.
Do you remember that incident last year in Malibu, when she was walking around barefoot and vomiting over railings?
From The National Enquirer:
Hayden Panettiere was spotted wasted and barfing in public after splitting from longtime fiancé Wladimir Klitschko. The “Nashville” vixen chugged two potent Long Island Iced Teas before dinner at a Malibu hot spot, then embarrassed herself in front of new beau Brian Hickerson, sources said. “It’s not the sort of behavior you’d expect in a place like that,” dished a spywitness who saw the petite blonde vomiting over a railing at Gladstones restaurant.
That drinking incident was not a one off.
She and Brian Hickerson continued to date. They got drunk together. Then they would argue. Then it would turn violent. Then he would beat her.
Those beatings were not a one off, either. Eventually, he was caught and arrested.
Now that you have the whole picture of the drinking and the violence, you can understand why Hayden lost custody of her child.
Hayden Panettiere’s ‘Life is in Flux’ as 4-Year-Old Daughter Lives in Ukraine with Dad
Kaya, 4, has been living in Ukraine with dad Wladimir Klitschko since he and Hayden Panettiere split last August
Hayden Panettiere remains apart from her 4-year-old child as her current boyfriend faces charges of abuse, a source tells PEOPLE.
The Nashville actress, 29, has been living away from her daughter Kaya ever since her breakup with the child’s father, Wladimir Klitschko, last August.
“Her life is in flux with her daughter living away, and she has other issues weighing on her mind,” the source says.
Kaya has apparently been living in Ukraine with Klitschko, 43, since last summer. In February, Panettiere went on vacation and shared a photo of Kaya strapped into a car seat.
“Sweet moments with sleeping babes,” she wrote.
Panettiere’s relationship with her boyfriend, Brian Hickerson, has been concerning her family and friends due to his alleged domestic abuse. The source told PEOPLE earlier this week that her loved one’s are “are begging her to straighten up and move ahead” from the aspiring actor, who faces a felony charge in connection with an alleged domestic violence incident.
Hickerson, 30, was arrested on a domestic violence charge on May 2 and released on bail. According to the felony complaint obtained by PEOPLE, prosecutors allege Hickerson “willfully inflicted corporal injury resulting in a traumatic condition upon Hayden P.”
If convicted, Hickerson faces up to four years in prison.
Given the drinking problem and the violence, putting a vulnerable child in Hayden’s care is absolutely untenable. Her daughter is safer living with Wladimir Klitschko in The Ukraine, with Hayden visiting every few months.
Amanduh was first with the correct response.
We wish Hayden well in her recovery, and hope that she finds the strength to get herself out of this terrible relationship!
