Emma Roberts Arrested After Bloody Brawl With Boyfriend Evan Peters

Evan Peters and Emma Roberts Here's one we didn't see coming at all. Emma Roberts, 22 (the niece of Julia Roberts), was arrested recently on domestic violence charges against her boyfriend Evan Peters, 26.

According to TMZ, it happened on July 7 at a hotel in Montreal. Other guests called the police after hearing the noise, and when officers arrived, they found Peters, who stars in American Horror Story, with a bloody nose and bite marks. Awful.

No one is sure exactly what happened in that room but Peters and Roberts themselves. It must have been pretty intense, however, to get to that level. Emma was released just hours after her arrest, as Evan apparently didn't want to press charges, but it's still frightening to think of things getting that heated between them.

A source told TMZ they were both hitting each other, but it was Emma who was arrested because Peters had the obvious physical injuries. The source also said that Emma did not bite him. Regardless of who was doing the hitting and/or biting, it sends up some huge red flags for this relationship. While we can hope it's a one-time incident, we also know that domestic violence can easily become a vicious cycle.

They've been dating since they met on the set of Adult World in the spring of last year. Peters recruited her to American Horror Story, and both were cast for the upcoming season of American Horror Story: Coven

The good news for fans -- the source says Roberts and Peters have made up, and they're working together on the show just fine. Hopefully their reconciliation is good news for both of them too in the long run.

Are you shocked that Emma Roberts was arrested for domestic violence?

Wasn't OK when Chris bit Rhianna, and it's not okay now. He needs to leave her, and hopefully she will get her act together and move on to have healthier relationships. No good relationship ever looks back on physical abuse.

I wonder if people will treat her the way Chris Brown has been treated after he beat up Rhianna?  Probably not, because girl on guy domestic violence is rarely viewed as bad. Regardless, I think anyone who is compelled to abuse someone they are in a relationship with needs serious counselling, and to probably remove themselves from the relationship until they are more stabile. As an aside,I would like to go on the record and say that I still think Chris Brown is an asshat. (Also, even though Emma Roberts is Julia's niece, she is also Eric Roberts' daughter. Eric Roberts is crazy. It wouldn't be surprising if Emma is a little, too)

@C- you took the words out of my mouth.  Because this is a woman who was arrested she will probably be able to sweep this under the rug but if it's a man it's an assumption that he will do it again.  If you are in a relationship and you feel the need to use your hands you need to separate and go in different directions.  However I am a person who believe in second chances because we all make mistakes but this is not healthy.

So agree with you both. Its sad how our society doesn't talk about this more.

I think this is really sad... I feel she should have been charged with domestic assault (if she actually committed the crime, innocent until proven guilty and all that, and YES this would be a crime). Just like with an abusive man, this is a cycle that will likely continue until she gets some serious help, in the form of long-term therapy. Any famous man who did this to his woman would be absolutely vilified in the press!
