Looks like Scream Queens star Emma Roberts has officially moved on from her split with ex-boyfriend and American Horror Story co-star Evan Peters. The actress was spotted in London holding hands with her new handsome beau, Christopher Hines.
Roberts, 25, was introduced to Hines through a mutual friend, fashion designer Brit Elkin, Us Weekly confirms. The two are officially dating, and are visibly smitten with each other and not afraid to engage in some PDA as they were seen laughing, hugging and getting coffee together.
“Chris is one of the most understanding and laid-back guys,” reveals an insider. “They’ve been dating for a little under a month.”
The news comes days after Roberts and Peters were confirmed to have broken up after three years of dating. The celebrity couple went through a rocky, on and off relationship that even landed Roberts temporarily in jail for alleged domestic violence in 2013.
A source close to the former lovebirds said their “romance is pretty extreme” and “very passionate.”
Roberts and Peters, who appeared together on American Horror Story, reportedly separated amicably much like their previous breakups. When the couple split in 2015 and called of their engagement, a source said “there was no drama whatsoever.”
On the other hand, Evan Peters is still very much single and busy promoting his new movie X-Men: Apocalypse. The 29-year-old actor stars as the witty speedster Quicksilver.
“It was so fun, for me especially, because I’m a fan of the comics,” Peters tells the Observer about his role. He’s also slated to join American Horror Story Season 6. He’s been a show regular and fan favorite since American Horror Story Season 1.
Meanwhile, Emma Roberts is also promoting Scream Queens Season 2, in which she reprises his role as Chanel Oberlin. The second season of the Scream Queens TV show is expected to premiere this fall.
