Emma Roberts and Evan Peters are a couple again: third time’s the charm?

Well, the merry-go-round that is the love affair between Emma Roberts and Evan Peters continues to churn along, as the lovebirds have decided to give their union another go.

25-year-old Emma and 29-year-old Evan met back in 2012 while filming Adult World and got engaged in 2014. This was after Emma was arrested for alleged domestic violence against Evan in a Montreal hotel room in July of 2013. The couple broke up again this past May and Emma took up with Christopher Hines.

Apparently, Emma and Evan, who co-starred on two seasons of American Horror Story together, just can’t get enough of each other. They remained friendly during their breakup and were spotted in late August enjoying bagels and coffee together. A source close to Emma told US Magazine, “Emma and Evan are definitely back together.” Bagels and coffee can do that.

Emma is about to invade your television screen on the second season of Ryan Murphy’s Scream Queens on FOX, which premieres on September 20. Evan is back for the sixth (and still mystery-shrouded) season of American Horror Story, which premieres on Wednesday night on FX. Can these two stay together this time? Is it love, or are they just addicted to the drama? I think they may have been working with Ryan Murphy a little too long. It will be interesting to see if they can stick it out this time.

    Nothing appealing about these two at all, apart…together….whatever.

  2. Erinn says:

    Ugh, Evan – no.

    Just no.

    • tegteg says:

      He seems so sweet and he’s very talented…. why does he stay in this abusive relationship? :( YOU CAN DO BETTER, EVAN. You deserve better.

      • Dorothy#1 says:


      • Sarah says:

        Would you ask the same of a woman? Abusive relationships are very complex and just because there isn’t a financial necessity to stay, doesn’t mean it’s easy to quit someone.

      • Aysla says:

        I would. It’s human nature to ask, “Why?”

        Being apart for several months… I hoped the space would give Evan clarity on the situation. Staying in touch all that time though… Bummer.

      • Kitten says:

        To give the obvious answer here: he’s clearly infatuated with her.
        It’s disappointing because he seems like a good guy. Emma, on the other hand….ugh.

        I feel like they’re doomed to repeat this pattern until he reaches his breaking point, hopefully sooner rather than later.

    • LeAnn Stinks says:

      I think Evan needs some help. He seems to suffering from some form of battered boyfriend syndrome. Very sad.

  3. SunnyD says:

    I think this dynamic they have needs to open the conversation about domestic violence against men.

    She’s an abuser, plain and simple. It’s sad that she gets away with hitting her significant other because she’s a woman.


    • jinni says:


      It’s crazy how this is how domestic violence when the abused is male and the abuser is female is presented. Where is the public rage at Emma for manipulating her victim back to her? Where are the twitter attacks on her character? Where is the concern for his safety? Where are the essays about how female predators hurt their male victims and how society fails these victims? Why isn’t Ryan Murphy being questioned and dragged for working with her after the attack?

      Instead it’s all written off as some natural occurrence of young love.

      • Nene says:

        Yes Jinni. Its appalling how when men get hit the go to excuse is “but a woman cant really hurt a guy or “he must’ve done something to deserve it” (Solange & Jay Z). The double standard is something else

      • tegteg says:

        It’s sad that men can’t even be upset about being assaulted or abused by a woman without society thinking they aren’t “man enough.” Men can cry and they can be upset, it doesn’t make them anything less. Enough of this primitive, caveman bullsh*t.

      • SunnyD says:

        My biological mother broke my Dad’s arm when I was 6 right in front of me, then the cops arrested him because of her crocodile tears. Abuse is abuse is abuse. Male, female, gay, straight. If your partner is abusing you mentally, physically, emotionally, financially or isolating you seek help and know you can leave and you deserve better.

    • Who ARE these people? says:

      There have been stories decrying her history of assault, at least here on Celebitchy.

      Dynamics have been dissected the same way.

      Separate issue from the numbers aspect. Men disproportionately abuse women.

    • Naya says:

      I did a double take when I read the comments above because Emma does face a lot of backlash over that incident. I saw this story on DM and the comments there eviscerated her. Her Youtube clips, especially those he is also in, have the same outrage. Frankly, I dont think I have ever seen a story on ANY website about that didnt end with comments calling her out for DV.

      There have been articles on her history but if people are really asking why there arent twitter hashtags, its the reason that C list male abusers dont get hashtags. Most people neither know or care who they are. Frankly, the only reason her name registers for me is because of her aunt.

      Women who live through DV dont get nearly as much support as they should so this advocacy strategy wherein you negatively compare the abuse of guys against that of women as though women are in some kind of promised land is not just upsetting but wrong. Whats wrong with just saying that domestic violence regardless of gender is wrong and all victims should receive support, which is the femnist position anyway.

      • jinni says:

        When women are abused by men many people don’t believe them but some do and they get sympathy. When men are abused by women they aren’t believed by most everyone and those that do believe them ridicule them for being hurt by a woman. Most hotlines, shelter and other public support services are geared towards abused women with very few outlets for men.

        So I do believe that women are in an ever so slightly better position when it comes to support when they are in abusive situations. Pointing this out is not saying that abused women are lucky or anything like that, it’s just a reality of men in abusive situations that doesn’t get much attention.

      • Flowerchild says:

        I agree with Jinni sadly men in abusive relationships are almost never believed. People always say they are “bigger” then the female abuser and are capable of defending themselves or they must have done something to cause that reaction.

        I read the second part a lot in the Emma and Solange post when they were caught being abusive.

      • Kitten says:

        Agree completely, Naya. Very well-said, my friend.

      • Naya says:

        Thanks Kitten 😘

    • Chewbacca says:

      Just another example of how gender inequality hurts EVERYONE. I hope someday he can get the help he needs. Nobody deserves to be abused, we all deserve a genuine happily ever after.

    • Vox says:

      I agree, there definitely needs to be far more awareness raised for domestic violence against men. Evan seems like a good guy and nobody deserves to be in an abusive relationship.

  4. SM says:

    I don’t know why but Evan gives me the creeps. He probably is a good and perfectly nice person, but there is something disturbing about his look.

    • Sea Dragon says:

      He looks like a troubled man in that last pic. If I saw him on the street I’d avoid him at all costs.

      But for the shot where she’s wearing the red dress, he doesn’t look happy to be around Emma at ALL.

    • jinni says:

      Maybe he looks that way because he’s in an abusive relationship and standing next to his abuser in most of these pictures.

    • Chaine says:

      I’m shocked that he is 29. He looks much younger to me. His hair in the header pic is reminding me of that dentist from the billboard that everyone was making fun of on Twitter last year.

  5. Christine says:

    I feel like all his thought bubbles while standing with her are saying “Please help me.”

  6. LolaBones says:

    Evan, please, no

  7. Nicole says:

    Ugh is right. Nothing about how cute they were will get me to ignore their DV. They are toxic together and they both need therapy. Her for attacking him. And he for continuing this terrible cycle. They do not need to be together at all

  8. TyrantDestroyed says:

    They seem to have a very toxic relation. It’s sad that they are so young and already involved in this negative cycle. It reminds me of a former college friend who ended up marrying her abusive boyfriend despise all our efforts for her to break the relationship 😓

  9. G says:

    Not surprising. This is the cycle of abuse at work.

  10. Neelyo says:

    She’s the perfect example of nepotism in Hollywood because she’s so blah onscreen that connections are the only justification for her career.

  11. Squiggisbig says:

    I assume she has family tied up in a basement somewhere.

  12. MisJes says:

    This shit is just a hot mess. Run, Evan!

  13. Liberty says:


    You have seen nothing until you see her “model acting” in a lame laughable “fashion” video on the Lands’ End (US sportswear company) website on their page for a line called canvas. Be prepared to go slack-jawed, my dears. Be prepared to laugh and laugh.

    • Erinn says:

      Nothing is going to convince me that her career has been bought with nepotism. NOTHING.

      Everyone was (fairly) growling about the nepotism with the two girls from yesterday, but they were a lot prettier than Emma. And her personality is garbage, and nothing I have seen of her has shown any real acting ability. It’s scary that she’s become a thing.

      She always has a strange, kind of wonky eyed, dead look on her face. I remember when she got that “Unfabulous” show. I was flipping through channels and stopped when I saw her playing guitar and singing. I just stared … it was bad. Even for a Nickelodeon kids show.

    • Zuzus Girl says:

      I just sent an email to the company saying I would not support a company that supports someone who perpetrates DV.

      • detritus says:

        That’s excellent.
        Think if enough of us did that Disney would stop employing abusers?

        The field I’m in counts every written communication as the opinion of 200 people, because thats about how many need to believe in it to get one passionate person to write in.

  14. Rapunzel says:

    This is sad… not only because of the double standards regarding women vs. men as DV victims/abusers, but because they can’t seem to quit was is most likely a relationship that will never work.

    I feel for Evan… although, I wonder how much Emma would have succeed in getting her hooks into him if she wasn’t Julia’s niece.

  15. Cinderella says:

    If the talk about her is true, that girl is level 10 crazy. Working with her must be a nightmare.

  16. whatthewhat says:

    i am disgusted how y’all are hoping they get back together when, um, without question she has committed violence against him! what the what?!! could we not encourage such disgusting behavior and hope this poor man can move on and find an actual, loving woman?? I was never against them or her, but after seeing those photos I am so sad and heartbroken for him.
    oh and I actually don’t mind her acting! though I do get the feeling she is only good at the “clearly evil or bitchy rah rah rah girl” roles. she does play those quite well and I enjoyed watching her.

    • I Choose Me says:

      Um who’s hoping they get back together? Every single post here mentions her abuse of him and hopes he can get away from her.

    • Flowerchild says:

      Did you actually read the comments??? Because ABSOLUTELY NO ONE said they should get back together. All the comments are calling the relationship toxic because of her abusive way and are say that he needs to run.

    • Zuzus Girl says:

      I haven’t read one single comment wishing they get back together.

  17. CornyBlue says:

    Oh man I was just seeing the X Men gag reel yesterday and thought Evan is so jolly and fun and he must be doing well post his breakup. This is horrid.

  18. I Choose Me says:

    Not surprised tbh. Abused people often return to their abusers. I like him. He’s a solid actor and seems sweet if troubled. Hope he can get to a place of emotional health and be free of her influence.

  19. Abbess Tansy says:

    Why Evan, why? Haven’t you figured out this women is seriously bunny boiler material?!!

  20. JenniferJustice says:

    My guess is he stays with her even though she’s a psycho because she is hot and he is not. That does not diminish her as an abuser nor him as a victim. I’m just saying I get the vibe he still thinks with his peen rather than his brain. I’m sure she proclaims to never be abusive again and he wants her body.

    I’ve known women who stayed in abusive relationships for the same reason. The abuser is good-looking and the abused is not. You’d be surprised how much looks matter to some people.

    • Pamela says:

      LOADS of people adore him. He is quirky for sure, and may not be your cup of tea, but I have no doubt he could have a line of gorgeous starlets waiting for a chance with him.

      It is so very sad that he stays, but that is all too common in the cycle of DV. It doesn’t make “sense” to the onlooker, but that is how it works.

    • Valois says:

      I think he’s pretty hot.
      Also, let’s be real: he’s not A list or anything like that, but he’s part of a franchise and one of the main actors on a relatively popular show. There are plenty of hot wannabe actresses, models or non-famous women who’d date him.

  21. Blackbetty says:

    I think he’s hot too. I was hoping they wouldntget back together. I’m sure he’d have no problems finding other women.
