Emma Roberts fans had to be shocked when they heard the news that she had been arrested in Montreal for domestic violence. TMZ first reported that the 22-year-old daughter of troubled actor Eric Roberts and niece of Julia Roberts had been taken into custody after an alleged dispute with her beau, American Horror Story’s Evan Peters, at a hotel. The site says Evans (her costar in the upcoming Adult World) was found with a bloody nose and a bite mark. “It was an unfortunate incident and misunderstanding,” according to a joint statement from the stars’ reps. “Ms. Roberts was released after questioning and the couple are working together to move past it.”

Plea entered

A New York man pleaded not guilty in federal court to charges of trying to extort Paula Deen. An indictment filed in Savannah, Ga., charges Thomas George Paculis with trying to extort $200,000 from the embattled chef in exchange for keeping quiet about allegedly damaging remarks she had made in the past. A complaint said Paculis initially tried extorting $250,000 from Deen but eventually lowered the amount after a discussion with one of Deen’s attorneys.

VMA nods

The man in the suit and tie and the duo who buys clothes at thrift shops are the leaders at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.

Big spenders

That’s amore! Adam Levine celebrated his surprise engagement to model Behati Prinsloo with a nice dinner and even better tip. An onlooker told People that the newly engaged couple dined Tuesday at Peels restaurant in NYC and left a “100 percent tip” on a $50 bill.

Never too late

What’s love got to do with it? Everything. Tina Turner got her man. The73-year-old singing diva has married her 57-year-old boy(man) friend Erwin Bach, the UK’s Daily Mail reports. The soul legend and German record company executive exchanged vows in Switzerland, where they are based. They’ve been together 27 years.

    Amber Valletta comes clean: I’m a raging addict

    Amber Valletta isn’t playing the blame game. The model-actress (Hitch, Revenge, Transporter 2) talked candidly in a video for MindBodyGreen.com and takes full responsibility for her addiction to drugs and alcohol. In the clip, Valletta says she started young, sniffing markers while growing up in Oklahoma, then graduated to the hard stuff when she began posing for magazines. Even though she has been sober for 25 years, the self proclaimed raging addict still has moments when she wants to “distract herself” because she’s “uncomfortable being a human being.” The 40-year-old mother of one, who is married to volleyball player Chip McCaw, credits looking inward constantly to stay healthy.
