Hayden Panettiere and boyfriend Scotty McKnight split up

hayden-panettiere-boyfriend-scotty-mcknight-breakup-gi.jpg "Nashville" star Hayden Panettiere is a single lady. She and her football player boyfriend, Scotty McKnight, have reportedly broken up.

TMZ cites sources close to the couple who say the pair called it quits a couple of weeks ago. Apparently, they ended things on good terms, though, and are still "really good friends."  

"They will probably be back together sometime down the road," one source tells TMZ.

McKnight is the second professional athlete Panettiere has dated; she was with pro boxer Wladimir Klitschko for a year and a half, splitting up in May 2011.

McKnight was a wide receiver for the New York Jets until he was waived from the team in August. He's now a free agent -- in more ways than one.
