Panettiere Dad to Mom: You Disrespected Me!

8/11/2008 10:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ now has details of what went down between Hayden Panettiere's mom and dad before daddy was busted for allegedly striking mommy, and we have video of the mother arriving at the party just hours before the incident.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Alan and Lesley Panettiere were at a party earlier in the evening. We're told Alan was upset because Lesley was "hanging" with someone at the shindig and he felt she was "disrespecting" him.

Sources say, according to Lesley's statement to Sheriffs, the couple went home, began arguing and he struck her in the cheek. We're told cops took pictures and there are visible marks.

Paramedics advised her she should go to the hospital but she refused. Alan did not give a statement to the police. It's unclear if any of their kids were at the house at the time of the incident.

TMZ shot this video of Hayden and Lesley arriving at Eva Longoria's restaurant, Beso, for the party last night, both looking ridiculously hot.

What do you expect from a couple who named their kid Hayden???? Total trash. Let's see what the other kids names are - Hunter, Jayden, Connor, Chase, Hayley, Mykylya, Neveah? Gag! I guess Tim, Susan, Jane, Robert, etc were just too classy, huh? Oh well, at least in the future, employers, dates, parole officers, etc can see these 'winners' coming a mile away...

Now I understand why Hayden's parents are cool with her daughter dating a 30 years old man and why they let her dress like a ho since she was practically a kid.

Hayden Panettiere's Mom is the victim, she was stuck by a man in anger and probably not for the 1st time. I'm extremely disappointed in all of you who are replying in any manner other than support of this being a wrong and unlawful act. And to then throw stones at a young star who has never been involved in any behaviors we see today from so many of the 'wild' young stars, shame on you all again! Geez, where do you people come from?? She's a pretty young girl, she wears styles that are acceptible for people her age. As far as her dating goes, were you there? Did you see her go out this person or that person? PLEASE, cut the kid some slack!
