Hayden Panettiere was spotted at LAX with convicted felon Brian Hickerson on Tuesday, eight months after the pair were involved in a wild bar brawl where he allegedly 'spat on' patrons.
It was reported in July that Panettiere and Hickerson - who is on probation until 2025 for domestically abusing the actress in 2018 - had finally called it quits on their troubled on/off romance.
Speaking to PEOPLE that same month, the Heroes actress referred to her relationship with Hickerson as a 'very dark and complicated time in [her] life.'
She felt compelled to tell her story because she knows 'a lot of women go through what I went through, and I want people to know it's OK to ask for help.'
Back in March, Panettiere and Hickerson made headlines after they were filmed getting into a wild brawl with a group of revelers at a celebrity hotspot in Los Angeles after the convicted felon allegedly spat on one of the rival patrons.

The petite actress, who is five feet tall, can be heard screaming 'Brian' as she tried to pull her boyfriend away from the group outside the Sunset Marquis hotel on the evening of March 25 as a woman in the other party screamed: 'Back the f**k up,' according to video obtained
Hickerson had spit at someone in the group and the manager of the trendy bar kicked everyone out, a witness told TMZ.
A representative for Panettiere told PEOPLE that Hickerson 'made a comment to an individual about leaving the waitress a poor tip.'
'That same individual, along with the group he was with, began badgering and shoving Brian, at which point security pushed everyone outside. Brian was attacked by the group, as was Hayden, who in her best effort tried to diffuse the situation,' the representative said.
The video picks up on the West Hollywood street outside the hotel with security asking other patrons not involved in the fight to go back inside.

'I need everyone back in the bar, please,' an employee said as Hickerson, who was wearing a white T-shirt and shorts, was seen launching toward the group of roughly eight people on the ramp. It appears Hickerson and Panettiere are up against two women - who largely stay out of the fight - and six men. However, the fight is manly between Hickerson and one man.
Security grabbed Hickerson - and pulled him away from the group as Panettiere was seen pointing over an employees shoulder. Someone in the group screamed 'It's over, it's over' at the stars.
Another male also said: 'Let's f**king go, bro,' while the girl who screamed earlier said: 'I will f**king [unintelligible] your a**.'
The group eventually moved away from the front door to the street, where fists and feet started flying.
The Bring It On actress mostly stayed near the outer ring of the fight and warningly called her boyfriend's name. At one point, a man in a brown jacket was still launching himself at Hickerson, causing Panettiere to reach out and grab his jacket to pull him off her boyfriend.
She fell to the ground in the action, alongside two to three other people and the man Panettiere grabbed was seen held in a headlock by Hickerson. Out of the corner of the frame, the actress can be seen being lifted to her feet by what appears to be a bar employee, but she didn't stay out of the action long, trying to pry her boyfriend from the fight.

A woman in a black jacket began pounding Hickerson's back, screaming hysterically: 'Get off. Get the f**k off of him, you f**king a**hole.'
Panettiere was seen trying to push people away from her boyfriend on the ground, but only ended up back on the ground, protectively covering the two men. She held one arm to keep attackers away, while calmly saying: 'Back up, back up, everybody.'
The hysterical girl, kneeling next to the star, began screaming at the top of her lungs: 'Get off.'
Panettiere appears to become more desperate to get her boyfriend out of the fight as she pleads with a bald man: 'No, let me get him. Let me get him.'
The two men begin struggling again and the force of the fight breaks the tightly knit ball up, sending them toppling backward and Panettiere laid flat on her stomach. She can also be seen wrapping her arms around someone's leg and it sends her rolling across the ground.
Hickerson can be seen being dragged by his foot while he was on all fours and violently kicking out at the men dragging him.
In a separate clip, Hickerson can be seen standing as people try to drag him away while he screams: 'I'm ready for round two.' His girlfriend beggingly calls for him to stop.
At one point, the Nashville actress could be heard screaming: 'Brian, jail!' Hickerson, a convicted felony, is on probation until 2025 for domestic violence charges for attacking the star in 2018.
