It seems like things are getting serious between Hayden Panettiere and her new boyfriend, Brian Hickerson. However, it’s not all rainbows and butterflies for the couple, reports say.

A source revealed to Us Weekly that the relationship between the Nashville star and her boyfriend “is not a healthy situation.” While they were visiting Brian’s family in South Carolina on Oct. 25, police were called to his father, David Hickerson’s house. According to the incident report, David had “what appeared to be blood on his face,” and Hayden answered the door and “appeared to be frantic.” David told the cops he fell, but it sounds like something fishy was going on.

A day before, the two were spotted holding hands in Florida, where they visited her family, according to E! News. Hayden and Brian were first linked in August, where they were seen grabbing dinner in Los Angeles after news broke that she was no longer engaged to Wladimir Klitschko.

“Her family and friends are worried about her. Hayden’s been drinking too much and acting out. Wladimir was a calming influence on her. Now that he’s not in the picture, she seems to be losing control,” a source told Life & Style magazine.

Hayden’s mom, Lesley Vogel, told Radar in August, “[I] think there are a lot of changes going on in her life. But I think they’re positive changes. And I think that she’s taking some time.” Lesley said that her daughter and Wladimir were still co-parenting and they recently just went on a trip with their daughter, Kaya, over the summer.

“She needs to take a little bit of a break and make some decisions on her own of what she wants to do. So I think she is in a very good place,” her mom continued.

It doesn’t sound like this relationship will last for much longer, though. A source told People, “She’s a mom and when there’s a break she would be crazy not to let loose and have fun. Don’t expect another heavy relationship now. She still cares for Wlad and loves her daughter.”

The source added, “Don’t assume Wlad is out of the picture because they aren’t seen together. They respect each other and are still very attracted [to each other]. Don’t rule this romance out.”

It sounds like you’ve got to be careful, girl!
