'Dramatic' Emma sobs in public

Emma Roberts has been spotted crying and cuddling boyfriend Evan Peters after news of her domestic violence arrest emerged.

It was revealed this week by TMZ that Emma, 22, was taken into custody on 7 July following a dispute with Kick-Ass star Evan, 26, in a hotel room in Montreal, Canada.

Police were called to the scene after fellow guests allegedly heard the couple fighting.

After Evan was reportedly found with a bloody nose and bite-mark girlfriend Emma was promptly arrested but was released hours later.

The incident still seems to be affecting the actress, who was seen sobbing in her boyfriend’s arms yesterday.

Evan cuddled the visibly distressed Wild Child star as she broke down on a street in New Orleans and tenderly stroked her hair as she wept.

It comes after friends of the couple, who started dating last year, claimed their relationship is very passionate.

A source tells Us Weekly that Emma, who’s the niece of Julia Roberts, is ‘dramatic’ and gets wound up’ during arguments.

They’re a couple of young kids,’ another source says.

Their romance is pretty extreme. They just behave in a way that’s very passionate.’
