The Golden Globe Award-nominated Panettiere had reported Hickerson to police multiple times during the relationship due to domestic abuse. However, he was released on bail every time. On this issue, Panettiere’s attorney said that she has been suffering from “psychological, emotional, and severe physical abuse” for years.

“I am coming forward with the truth about what happened to me with the hope that my story will empower others in abusive relationships to get the help they need and deserve. I am prepared to do my part to make sure this man never hurts anyone again. I’m grateful for my support system, which helped me find the courage to regain my voice and my life.”

Along with the post, the actress added the following note, and encourage people to call for help in case they need:
