Emma Roberts’ rep speaks about arrest

 

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.
