Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko Split

Our favorite odd couple has called it quits. Hayden Panettiere and her very large boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko have split up.

Hayden and the heavyweight champion boxer have decided to split after 18-months together because they couldn’t deal with having a long-distance relationship. Hayden lives in LA, while Wladimir lives in Hamburg, Germany.

A statement from Hayden said: “While we decided to split, we feel great sympathy and respect for each other and will surely stay close friends."

Wladimir added: "We had a great time together. But more and more we realized how difficult it is to maintain a relationship when living on two continents … I cherish Hayden as a person and woman. I'm sure we will stay friends."

Ah shucks, and just days after we named them one of our favorite celebrity odd couples. Hayden’s a cute girl, I’m sure she’ll bounce back in no time.
