US: Emma Roberts and Evan Peters are ‘still very much together’

I was surprised with the amount of interest in the story that Emma Roberts was the reason for Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen’s split. Rachel and Hayden have a three year-old daughter together and have been a couple since 2009. According to US, which has had multiple insider scoops seemingly from Rachel, the relationship ended after Rachel discovered text messages between Emma and Hayden, who were costarring on a film together. Many of you mentioned that Emma is supposedly dating Evan Peters, with whom she’s had a tumultuous on-off relationship for years, with allegations of domestic abuse on Emma’s part. Well Us says that Emma and Evan are still a couple. While their article mentions the allegations that Emma was a third party in Rachel and Hayden’s split there’s no denial that was the case.

Emma Roberts and Evan Peters’ romance is going strong, multiple sources confirm exclusively to Us Weekly.

“Emma and Evan are still very much together,” one insider tells Us, while a second source adds that the on-off couple “are happy.”

The American Horror Story costars first began dating in spring 2012 after meeting on the set of the indie film Adult World…

Peters, 30, popped the question to the Scream Queens alum in December 2013, but they called off their engagement in June 2015. Two months later, Us Weekly exclusively confirmed that they were back together, though they amicably split for a second time in May 2016.

The couple decided to give their relationship another go in September 2016, and multiple sources confirmed to Us one month later that they were officially engaged once again. “She’s been wearing her ring,” a source told Us at the time. “Everyone on set knows.”

After that US included the detail that Emma was implicated in Rachel and Hayden’s split but didn’t deny it at all. Again both things can be true – Emma can still technically be with Evan and she still could have had some kind of relationship with Hayden which prompted his split. Emma and Evan may not have even gotten physical. Emotional infidelity can be just as devastating for a couple, especially when they’re having trouble communicating. (Not that I have any details about what happened here I’m just going on the scant information we have.) Anyway I’m not surprised to hear that Evan and Emma are still together, but I would be surprised if their relationship has been healthy. They seem to break up and get back together a lot.

    She just seems so toxic and an overall pain in the ass. I also want to be totally honest, I really like Evan.I think this is a sick relationship that is mistaken as a passionate one.

    Evan is way to good for her and if he continues with this, it’s going to drain him up.

  2. Handwoven says:

    I feel bad for the guy. Her whole family is nasty and toxic, and she’s bad news.

  3. Moxie Remon says:

    This poor man.

    • paranormalgirl says:

      Hey, he chose her. And he chose to remain in the relationship.

      • Handwoven says:

        That’s not fair. We shouldn’t say that about women who are being abused in their relationships, and we shouldn’t say it about men who are either.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        Once again, they broke up and got back together several times. If he stayed in the relationship because he was being abused, then my comment would be unfair. However, he went back time and time again, so clearly, their dynamic is toxic and some of the onus is on him. Maybe he loves her and thinks he can change her, but RETURNING to the relationship is his choice.

      • ell says:

        @paranormalgirl lmao, are you serious? you’re the one defending jen garner for sticking by affleck literally all the time, but don’t afford the same sympathy to a man. nagl.

      • Zapp Brannigan says:

        It takes an abused partner on average seven attempts to end an abusive relationship fully according to the National Domestic Hotline. Returning to the relationship is the “norm” in that dynamic, for many reasons.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        Oh, I have sympathy for him, being in an abusive situation is never acceptable. But if you continue on and go back to the same thing time and time again, at some point, you have to accept that you might have an issue as well. I see it all the time in my practice. You can’t change the situation or the other person, you can only change your reactions and actions towards them. Maybe the issue is that I am looking at this from a clinical perspective, from the perspective of the victim who is wondering why things never change. I do apologize if I sounded flippant in my original statement, but how many times does it take to understand that the abuser is not going to change? (ETA: thank you, Zapp, for that link about it taking an average of seven times) It hurts my heart to see people consistently abused, mistreated, taken for granted, etc, and yet they return either because they think they can change the the other person or because they don’t think they are worth something better,

        And from what I have heard, she is QUITE the awful piece of work.

      • Anon33 says:

        I love when people who have clearly never been in an abusive relationship tell survivors how we should have reacted.

        Get the eff out of here with that mess.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        Been in an abusive relationship. Lucky to have gotten out safely. I don’t see where I said how anyone SHOULD have reacted, I am looking at it through the other side now. The side that wishes I had been able to see my worth, to see what a monster my long ago ex boyfriend was, to have had the hindsight to get out, and the side that is glad I didn’t go back to that relationship when I did get out. For me, it was one stint in that relationship that was enough. It’s not for others. That is part of why I became a psychiatrist. Don’t assume.

        I am going to recuse myself from this conversation now. Having just lost a patient to an abusive relationship is not making me see or speak clearly right now.

    This couple seem toxic.

    She treats him like garbage.


  6. Tess says:

    She seems horrible and toxic.

  7. savu says:

    Could’ve totally been “emotional cheating”… but it could’ve been a misunderstanding too.

    Those are boundaries that need to be set though. In my workplace, there’s a small department of five, 4 men and 1 woman. The woman is younger, the men are 30s and 40s. We just had this whooooole drama with the young woman (a good friend of mine), who would text the one colleague she worked the same shifts with (in his 40s) to vent about work stuff. Exclusively work stuff. Well, the guy’s girlfriend was highly insecure about this and accused him of having an “emotional affair”. When it was 100% about work. He then said he didn’t really WANT to be texting her that much anyway, he’s in his 40s and isn’t really a texter, but is kind to a fault, and thought the woman would find it totally rude if he didn’t respond. (In his relationship, they have pretty traditional views of having friends of the opposite sex, aka they don’t really have any.) Anyway, eventually the girlfriend checked his phone, was convinced all this work talk was inappropriate, and CALLED the woman, on her work phone, left this very unkind voicemail, and it turned into this whole big thing. I felt SO bad for this girl who had no idea she was causing a problem. All he had to do was say “eh I’m not much of a texter”!!!!

    I guess I’m trying to say that especially when you work with people from different generations, or “digital natives” vs. non-natives, it can be tricky.

    I’m not suggesting that’s what happened here, I’m just selfishly taking the opportunity to gossip.

    • Erica_V says:

      Serve that tea Savu!!

      I feel bad for the girl she obviously felt she had a good enough relationship with the coworker to feel comfortable enough to vent to him. He should’ve spoken up if he was uncomfortable with the situation. Altho my gossipy side wants to say he prob didn’t really mind and maybe even enjoyed the conversations and he’s just trying to save face now with the wife.

      I think texting with coworkers in general can be tricky context and IMO time of day make a big difference altho texting in general can be difficult as you can’t give any tonal context to what you’re saying (see the Key & Peele text kit for the best hilarious representation of this).

      If Rachel found things that made her decide to up and leave with their daughter than i doubt it was just work talk.

  8. Stacye310 says:

    Evan dear, you can do so much better. As for “multiple sources confirming” they’re still together….if they are, fine. If they’re not, fine. I’m always skeptical about the need to make it abundantly clear “look everyone, we’re still together!”

  9. Neelyo says:

    She’s really lucky she has those family connections, that’s all I’ve got.

  10. third ginger says:

    He’s a very talented actor. I hope he has a long career and less off-screen drama.

  11. Patricia says:

    He has so much true talent. Such range and depth.

    She has only ever been good playing anlittle brat. And even that… nothing special.

  12. Brittany says:

    Maybe he has Stockholm syndrome….

  13. KatieBo says:

    I can only imagine how different the whole tone of this story would be if it were Amber Herd getting back together with Johnny Depp. I doubt the history of physical abuse would be a passing sentence in the story. It’s a shame that female toward male physical abuse is seemingly more acceptable in our society.

    • Lex says:

      It isn’t more acceptable at all. Assault against anyone is solidly unacceptable.

      From my recollection, they both were physical with each other that time but he had marks on his legs (or something) so they arrested her.

      • Washington says:

        She attacked him. He didn’t just have “marks on his legs (or something)”. He had bite marks, scratches, bruises and a bloody nose. *She* was arrested on a domestic violence charge. The only thing that stopped it going further was that he refused to press charges (young love, and love in general, sometimes doesn’t think rationally). In this case I’m going to be on the side of Evan Peters and not on the side of “but they were both equally handsy!” because that’s just not the case. Emma Roberts is the abuser here, not Evan Peters, so let’s not rewrite history.

  14. Electric Tuba says:

    I’ll update my spreadsheet of things that don’t matter.

  15. ell says:

    hopefully he’ll dump her and move on at some point. abusive relationships are terrible, and sometimes really hard to get away from.

  16. Julie says:

    He deserves better!

  17. Hunter says:

    These are the kind of celebrities that make me realize how old and out of touch I am. She looks a lot like the girl I saw on Riverdale (which I saw for the first time last night) and he reminds me of Edward Scissorhands. Which is not necessarily bad. I’m Kind of attracted to the pale Jack White kinda look.

  18. Madpoe says:

    Evan NO! No bueno!

  19. dnice says:

    They are hot together-This all seems volatile, complicated and passionate all at the same time. Doesn’t mean that it’s a healthy situation but at any rate it will be a learning experience and hopefully all parties grow and become better from it…much love.

  20. Bread and Circuses says:

    OR, or, or… *adjusts tinfoil hat* ,,,they’re only “together” and “happy” because Emma’s agents are trying to quietly make the scandal go away and Evan is willing to go along with a PR arrangement, for whatever reasons.
