Police called to disturbance in hotel room

Emma Roberts has been arrested for domestic violence after allegedly lashing out at her boyfriend Evan Peters, it’s been reported.

Police were called to the couple’s hotel room in Montreal, Canada at around 2am on 7 July after guests heard them fighting.

Kick-Ass star Evan, 26, was found with a bloody nose and also appeared to have a bite-mark, according to TMZ.

Emma, 22, was immediately arrested and taken into custody but was released hours later, reportedly because her boyfriend didn’t want to press charges.

A source close to Emma says both were attacking each other but they deny that the Wild Child actress bit Evan.

It was an unfortunate incident and misunderstanding,’ reps for the pair tell E! News in a joint statement.

Ms Roberts was released after questioning and the couple are working together to move past it.’

Both have kept quiet about the incident on Twitter, though Emma – who’s the niece of Julia Roberts – went offline for a few days at the alleged time of the bust-up.

She returned to the site on 8 July with the message: Sorry for the long break guys. How’s everybody!

The couple, who started dating last year, are now working together on TV series American Horror Story.
