Emma Roberts Busted for Domestic Violence Against Evan Peters
We have good news and bad news.
The bad news: Emma Roberts was arrested for domestic violence against her boyfriend, ‘American Horror Story’ star Evan Peters.
The good news: Well, that means Emma Roberts finally did something interesting — and maybe even showed some emotion.
TMZ reports that Roberts, 22 — daughter of actor Eric Roberts, niece of Julia Roberts and a firm believer in nepotism — was arrested in Canada on July 7 after bloodying up Peters, 26.
Someone nearby called police upon hearing the couple fighting in their Montreal hotel room.
When cops arrived, Peters was rocking a bloody nose and a bite mark; shortly after Roberts was rocking handcuffs.
Roberts was released within hours because Peters didn’t want to press charges against the actress. Sources say the couple were both hitting one another, but are back together and working on ‘American Horror Story’ — and that peters never had any bite marks.
Sounds a lot more horrifying than anything Ryan Murphy could have dreamed up. Here’s hoping both parties get some help.
UPDATE: Roberts and Peters released a statement to Us Weekly, saying, “It was an unfortunate incident and misunderstanding. Ms. Roberts was released after questioning and the couple are working together to move past it.”
