Hayden Panettiere Holds Hands With Boyfriend Brian Hickerson's Brother After Getting a Restraining Order

Hayden Panettiere seems to be staying close with her boyfriend Brian Hickerson‘s brother after Brian‘s arrest for domestic violence.

The 30-year-old Nashville star was seen holding hands with Zach Hickerson on September 4 in New York City. (Click here to see the photos.)

The two were seen looking happy, walking and talking together in the city.

That said, a family source tells In Touch Weekly that their relationship is “not romantic.”

Hayden and Zach are just friends. They have been friends for as long as she’s been dating Brian; Zach and Brian are close. Zach was in NYC for a job interview and he linked up with Hayden who was already in town. They were just goofing off and holding hands as friends. At one point, she was jumping up and down making funny faces, and he was flexing his muscles and laughing. They looked happy together,” the source said.

Brian was arrested for allegedly hitting Hayden during a physical altercation back in May.
