Julia Roberts’ actress niece Emma was arrested in Montreal, Canada last week after allegedly attacking her boyfriend.

The 22-year-old, whose father is Julia’s brother Eric, was taken into custody after police responded to reports of a fight between her and actor beau Evan Peters in a city hotel and found him with a bloodied nose, according to TMZ.

Roberts was released hours later because her 26-year-old boyfriend did not want to press charges.

The couple has not split and are currently working together on TV drama “American Horror Story.”
