Hayden Panettiere’s new man and hard partying has friends and family worried sick about the young actress' future.
“They are deeply concerned,” a source close to the 29-year-old said of her parents and pals. “They do not approve. They are hoping that this is something that she is going to evolve from.”
Since leaving the TV series Nashville, the mom of daughter Kaya, almost 4, broke up with baby daddy and fiancé Wladimir Klitschko in August and moved back to Los Angeles.
The starlet has been spotted around Hollywood with new boy toy Brian Hickerson going in and out of bars where Panettiere was caught puking over a railing after one too many cocktails, Radar previously reported exclusively.
Although a source said he was joking, in a shocking new confession on his Instagram story, cash-strapped Hickerson, 34, admitted when Panettiere is sleeping, he steals her credit card to pay for things he wants, Radar revealed.
“A relationship isn’t helpful for either of them. He’s funny and charming and good looking, but he’s not bringing out the best in her,” said the source.
“Sometimes we all do what make sense for the moment. And let’s hope that is what it is – a moment.”
The blonde beauty, who starred in her first commercial at 11 months old, is taking some time to figure out her next step.
“She’s come through a lot of things, she’s been on hit shows, lived in a town that she fell out of love with and that was a difficult pocket of time, and she wanted to leave Nashville sooner,” added the source. “The cumulative effect probably makes her feel now that she wants to take a break, enjoy life, have fun, and have some laughs.”
As readers know, the starlet’s mom previously told Radar exclusively she has her doubts about the boy her daughter has been hanging out with.
“You just never know what people want. You don’t know if you can trust anyone,” mom Lesley Vogel explained. “I don’t trust his intentions. People can use her.”
