For well over a year, Hayden Panettiere and Scotty McKnight were going strong as one of the popular "it" couples.
Though, like many -- if not all -- of those relationships, it's come to an end.
According to TMZ, Panettiere and McKnight have officially broken up.
Sources tell the gossip site that the split occurred a few weeks ago, but the two remain "really good friends" and "will probably be back together sometime down the road."
The 23-year-old Panettiere and 24-year-old McKnight began dating last July. In that time, Panettiere has starred in the show Nashville, whereas McKnight has failed to hold down a job.
A 2011 seventh-round pick of the Jets, McKnight spent his rookie season on the team's practice squad before landing on IR with a torn ACL. He was re-signed by New York in March, but subsequently waived less than five months later and is currently a free agent.
McKnight shouldn't feel too bad, however. Despite this news, he's infinitely better off than Mark Sanche...
