This marks the first relationship since Hyland broke up with Prokop, whom she dated for more than five years. In September, she was granted a restraining order
against her ex. Court papers allege that Prokop not only choked Hyland, but also threatened to burn her house down. After their breakup, the papers claim that Prokop "bombarded" Hyland with "vile, threatening and emotionally disturbing texts and voice mails."
