It's over for Hayden Panettiere and her football player boyfriend Scotty McKnight. Us Weekly reports that the 23-year-old "Nashville" actress has parted ways with her 24-year-old beau of a year and a half. The publication also refers to sources that say that "distance and different personalities" contributed to their split.

Meanwhile, TMZ has a different take on the situation, quoting an insider that said Panettiere and McKnight "will probably be back together sometime down the road" and that the split was amicable.

The couple first started dating in June 2011. This isn't the first break up with an athlete that the former "Heroes" star has weathered in public, of course. In 2011, she split from Ukranian boxer Wladimir Klitschko, whom she dated for two years.
