Not all is well in Canada.
The couple, who met on the set of Adult World, allegedly got into a physical altercation at their shared hotel room in which the 22-year-old starlet inflicted obvious injuries upon her beau.
Law enforcement officers were called in and, after reportedly spotting 26-year-old Peters with a bloody nose and bite marks, took the actress into custody. Roberts — actor Eric Roberts‘ daughter and Julia Roberts‘ niece — was later released as Peters did not want to press charges.
The duo are currently set to star alongside one another on the third season of FX’s hit horror series, American Horror Story: Coven. They’ve been dating since 2012.
