Turns out healing comes in many forms—even some your loved ones might not exactly approve of.
Because the 32-year-old’s family and friends aren’t thrilled she’s anywhere near the guy she obtained a restraining order against following several domestic violence arrests, a source telling E! News they “have been voicing their reservations about her resuming contact with Brian.”
Just 13 months ago she seemed to have put that whole chapter in the rearview, sharing in her Instagram post, “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.”
Now, Hickerson told E! News last month, she’s giving him another chance. Just not like that.
“Hayden and I are not back together but are working on a friendship,” he explained of the group outing. “We have a long history together, and the first step in my recovery as an abuser is making amends. That’s exactly what Hayden has been gracious enough to allow me to do.”
