One of the most disappointing stories that came out of Hollywood in 2019 was the report that Evan Peters and Emma Roberts had split up. The two movie stars had dated for a total of seven years. They had also weathered many storms, and their fans seemed sure that they were destined for the altar. These nascent hopes were, however, dashed when the two lovebirds broke up in March 2019. Peters and Roberts have since moved on with their lives, but startling revelations continue to emerge about their split.
A Look Back at Their Relationship Timeline
Evan Peters first met Emma Roberts while they were filming the indie comedy, Adult World, in 2012. Reports have it that the actress was immediately smitten with the actor and made no attempts to hide her affections. Peters, on the other hand, was more subdued but he eventually fell for Roberts, and they commenced a relationship once filming ended in the summer of 2012. Peters and Roberts spent the first few months of their relationship in relative bliss. They, however, ran into troubled waters while holidaying in Montreal, Canada, in July 2013.
The couple got into a loud altercation in their hotel room and guests were forced to call the cops. Upon arrival, the police discovered that Peters had bite marks, as well as a bloodied nose, while Roberts was unscathed. Although the actress was arrested, she was later released after her beau refused to press charges. The couple later attributed the whole scandal to an unfortunate misunderstanding and stated that they were working to get past it. Evan Peters and Emma Roberts eventually got past their troubles and went ahead to get engaged in December 2013.
Their engagement lasted for two years before the couple broke up in June 2015. Following their breakup, Peters and Roberts stayed apart for the next three months. They subsequently got back in September 2015, only to break up again in May 2016. This second breakup lasted for another three months before they reconciled in September 2016. Following their second reconciliation, Peters and Roberts remained together for the next three years before going their separate ways for good in March 2019.
The Real Reason Behind Evan Peters and Emma Roberts Breakup?
Celebrity breakups can be loosely categorized into two types. There are the amicable ones, in which both parties maintain a respectful silence afterward. There are also the downright nasty ones in which the couple has no qualms about washing their dirty linens in public. Fortunately or unfortunately (depending on which side you are), Evan Peters and Emma Roberts have decided to tread on the heels of respectful silence.
They have decided to keep mum on what caused their split; only insisting that their breakup wasn’t a bad one and that they remain friends. However, some sources close to the couple have revealed that their romance ended because it had become toxic. According to the insider, the two would experience the highest of highs only to end up not speaking to each other for days. This type of extreme mood swings made the relationship toxic and ultimately led to its demise.
What Have They Been Up To Since The Split?
Since their breakup, Evan Peters and Emma Roberts have each focused on consolidating their thriving Hollywood careers. They have also found love again. Peters is now in a budding relationship with award-winning singer, Halsey. The couple first sparked dating rumors after they were spotted holding hands at the Six Flags Magic Mountain in California in October 2019.
They subsequently made their relationship official on Instagram, where they confirmed that they were dating. Peters and Halsey have since been spotted on several public outings, as well as red carpet ceremonies. The couple also sparked pregnancy rumors after Peters was spotted cradling Halsey’s stomach in November 2019. They, however, squashed the speculations by quickly denying that they were expecting.
On her part, Emma Roberts is now in a relationship with a fellow Hollywood star, Garret Hedlund. Hedlund is an actor, model, as well as a singer, who has appeared in several movies and TV series. He has also shared the screens with A-listers such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Brad Pitt, and Mark Wahlberg. Roberts and Hedlund commenced their romance shortly after her split from Peters. The couple has remained together ever since then. They have been waxing stronger, despite Roberts’ initial insistence that “they were not serious but were rather just exploring a relationship.”
