Hayden Panettiere and her boyfriend, Wladimir Klitschko, have ended their relationship. They have both released statements (though unnecessary since they weren’t married) saying that they remain good friends.
“Even though we’ve decided splitting up is best for both of us, we have an amazing amount of love and respect for each other and remain very close friends,” said Panettiere. “We had a great time together, but it’s not that easy to manage a relationship between two continents. I have a lot of respect for Hayden as a person and as a friend, and I believe we’ll keep our friendship even after the separation,” added Klitschko.
It’s another typical Hollywood split with a couple torn apart by long distances and hectic schedules. It seems as though the only people who get it right are the ones that move out of the Hills to some chÃ¢teau and keep their relationship shrink-wrapped. Traveling all over the world is not easily avoided when you’re a celebrity, but if you really want your relationship to work, you have to put the effort in. Humans have needs and the natural instinct is to be close to the one you love. When that aspect disappears, it’s hard for the human heart to keep wanting.
Hopefully Hayden and Wladimir do remain friends as they say, and maybe they will reconcile in the future.
