It is unclear exactly when the couple started dating each other but reports are stating that they have been together since April 2019, nearly a year ago. However, not much information is available regarding the current couple’s dating life. There are very few paparazzi shots of the lovers strolling the streets of New York together but she, 29, and Garrett, 35, seem to be going well.

Rumors first began swirling that these two were an item a few months before the confirmation. However, the media had approximately zero confirmation. Since then, there have been very few sightings of these two together, not to mention the barely-there social media appearances. They also haven’t even walked the red carpet together, which is very unlikely for celebrity couples.

As some sources stated, she and Garrett started spending time together in various social settings, before things began to turn romantic. Since then, they have gone on a few casual dates and are exploring a relationship, but it is not anything serious yet” as the source mentioned in the article in March 2019.

Emma Roberts – Past Relationships

Emma Roberts has been in several romantic relationships with A-list stars. Some of them are Christopher Hines in 2016, Chord Overstreet from 2011 to 2012, Dathan Kuppin from 2009 to 2011, Ryan Sheckler from 2008 to 2009, and Alex Pettyfer from 2007 to 2008.

She also was a couple with Evan Peters from 2016 to 2019. The duo had on-and-off relationships with each other throughout the years they were together. Their relationship was also deemed “toxic”. They were even engaged!

Similarly, before seeing the young American actress, Garrett Hedlund himself dated and was even briefly engaged to his On the Road co-star, Kirsten Dunst, from 2011 to 2016.

Petes-Roberts Scandalous Relationship

A source close to Emma tells E! News that the pair broke off their engagement, thus ending their 5-year relationship shortly after Valentine’s Day. The same source added:

“They have had their ups and downs for a while now and they were really trying to make it work. Their split was a long time coming.”

Previously, the on-and-off nature of their relationship has led to some violent confrontations. However, the duo is not on bad terms but is taking space from each other. As she revealed on Chelsea Lately (via E! News), the two met on the set of their movie, Adult World, in the year 2012.

More details

They didn’t start dating until after filming wrapped. And by January 2013, they went public, walking the red carpet at an afterparty for the 70th Annual Golden Globes. Soon, people started spotting the couple everywhere from sightseeing in Paris to strolling in New York. Unfortunately for the A-list match, things started going sour after not even a full year into their relationship. Throughout all the breakups and make-ups, which were plenty, it looks like the two just couldn’t make it work.

TMZ publicized the news that not even after a year of dating, she and Evan Peters’ relationship had turned physical. As the report in July 2013 said, people called the police to the pair’s Montreal hotel room after they heard the fight get serious. Once the cops arrived at the scene, they immediately arrested her but not Peters. It was because the police spotted Peters with a bloody nose and bite mark but she had no physical damage. Peters decided against pressing charges, and his girlfriend was released a mere few hours later.

Only days after the news broke, her interview with Nylon hit the stands. Ironically, she spoke about her public image and claimed that a lot of people perceive her differently. She also talked about making mistakes, where she said, “I can’t say I’m never going to mess up, but if I do, I’ll be very sorry.”

Engagement and beyond

In December 2013, Evan Peters popped the question to his co-star girlfriend, with the pair going public with the engagement by January. But 18 months later, they abruptly called it off, only to get back together in August 2016. Likewise, in September 2017, news broke that fellow A-list couple, Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen had called it quits after ten long years together. The Blast reported that she was at the center of their split.

The sources mention that she had allegedly gotten close to Christensen while they were on set for their flick, Little Italy, and Rachel Bilson reportedly found inappropriate texts between the two. This caused her to leave her beau immediately, resulting in the split of the Bilson-Christensen couple. Nevertheless, the Roberts-Peters couple was still “very much together” even after that incident.

Throughout all of their ups and downs, it seems like whenever she and Evan Peters threw in the towel, she seemed to bounce back at a rapid rate. Following their second split in May 2016, she was already spotted with a new man, Christopher Hines, by June of the same year. Also, shortly after Roberts and Peters ended their second engagement in 2019, she was already linked to the Tron: Legacy actor, Garrett Hedlund. The Roberts-Hedlund couple is still together at the moment.

The same source added:

“She complains about the tiniest things and won’t speak to crew members. Gabby finally told she to cut her attitude and stop being rude.”

If that wasn’t enough, rumors swirled that she had issues with her Scream Queens co-star, Lea Michele, in 2016, as well. According to InTouch (via Yahoo! News), the two were “always at each other’s throats,” adding that they even went as far as to ignore one another on set or call each other names.
