The romance between Hayden Panettiere and Scotty McKnight is no more, sources confirmed on Monday (December 10)

The “Nashville” cutie and her athlete honey cited distance and differing personalities as the reason for the split.

The sports loving pair were first spotted out together in June of 2011.

Despite her last two love interests being athletes, the 23-year-old insists she doesn’t have a type. "See, I date two athletes and then people assume I only like athletes, but if I dated all actors, people wouldn't say anything," Panettiere joked to Us in 2011. "But I like it. It's been a really cool thing because they're in similar circles, where they understand the schedule, the work ethic, the social aspect, but they're not exactly in your industry, so it works out well."
