September 2006- September 2007: Stephen Colletti
We’ve all had those moments where we look back at who we dated as teenagers and immediately vommed in our mouths. Enter Hayden’s ex, Laguna Beach lothario, Stephen Colletti. Although he eventually moved onto a basketball court called One Tree Hill (we just can’t even with that show), Stephen first played the game of love with Hayden in 2006. When the two broke up, Hayden spilled to Seventeen magazine , "I just knew I wanted to breathe. I wanted to be single at the time. It just hit me like a ton of bricks — this is the time I need to be with myself."
But then, just to make sure everyone knew who the star was in this relationship, she added, "It takes such a secure person to be with someone like me; it takes so much confidence, it takes so much trust." Subtext: Go back to LC, Stephen.
Fun fact: She was 17 years old and he was 21 when they dated and she broke up with him right around when she turned 18. Although the two went their separate ways, they were spotted in March of 2009 at Eva Longoria’s LA restaurant Beso, but both claimed it was a “friendly” meeting.
