In Scream 4 Emma Roberts played Jill Roberts, Sidney Prescott’s (Neve Campbell) niece who was a little violent. It looks like Emma may have taken that role to heart after she was arrested and charged with domestic violence. She’s not a Tammy Wynette type of girl who “stands by her man” she beats her man up, as witnessed on her arrests when he boyfriend got a bloody nose from her.
TMZ reported that the 22 year-old Roberts who is Julia Roberts niece and Eric Roberts daughter got taken into custody on July 7, after Montreal police claimed that she got into a fight with her boyfriend, Evan Peters.
According to sources, the 26 year-old Peters, who stars in American Horror Story, looked like he was still at work when police responded to a domestic violence call and found Peters with a bloody nose and an alleged bite mark on July 7 in Montreal, Canada.
The same sources said that someone staying in the same hotel as the raucous couple called the police to report a fight in another room. It hasn’t been revealed just what happened when the police turned up at the room to find Peters wounded and bloody, but Roberts was immediately slapped into a pair of handcuffs.
The law enforcement officials must have confused Roberts with her onscreen persona in Scream 4. Other sources, though, are standing by Emma and stating that she never bit Peters.
If that is the case, maybe that was what started the fight. Forget coming in with lipstick on your collar! Just try explaining that bite mark! Since Emma Roberts doesn’t just stand by for that sort of thing, she must have decided to beat the truth out of him. At least until the hotel neighbours complained.
According to the Montreal police, Roberts was immediately arrested because her man had some very obvious injuries, But TMZ decided to show pictures of Emma’s teeth, perhaps for comparison shots?
But according to TMZ, who aren’t heartless, honest, Emma on Tuesday, burst into tear outside a New Orleans studio and who was there to comfort her, but Evan Peters! We aren’t sure what the tears were about. Perhaps they were tears of joy that her fella didn’t press charges when she was arrested?
Sources close to Emma have said that the argument went both ways and that the 22 year-old niece of Julia Roberts had her fair share of bruises. But police did say that they had clear evidence that Roberts bit Peters.
It was probably only a love bite.
But for the public, both the young actors have put on a united front. In a joint statement, both actor’s reps talked about the arrest and the charge of domestic violence: “It was an unfortunate incident and misunderstanding. Ms. Roberts was released after questioning and the couple are working together to move past it.”
Peters and Roberts had worked together in the dark comedy Adult World, which was shown at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival.
So at the end of the day, and public statements by reps aside, apparently, Peters likes his women to be a bit rough, and since Emma Roberts would rather beat her man up than stand by him, it seems the two are perfectly matched. They are still together and according to TMZ went to the premiere of The Lone Ranger. As a couple.
