Emma Roberts' parents are supporting her relationship even though she was arrested over a domestic violence dispute with her boyfriend Evan Peters earlier this month.
The 22-year-old actress' parents actor Eric Roberts and Eliza have spoken out on the incident and claim the young couple "are grown-ups" who are old enough to make their own decisions.
Her mother Eliza told TMZ: "Out of love and respect we don't have anything to say."
However, Emma's 'Best of the Best' actor father was quick to defend his daughter, saying: "Here is the thing about couples, if you are not one of those people, you do not know what happens. You had to be one of those two people, it's their business.
Prompting Eliza to add: "Yeah, misunderstanding happens all the time."
'We're The Millers' star Emma - who is the niece of Julia Roberts - was arrested and released without charge last week following an argument with Evan in their hotel room in Montreal, Canada.
Local authorities at the scene witnessed that Evan had suffered bite marks and a bloody nose as a result of the fracas.
Despite the violent encounter, friends of the couple say they will stay together.
Emma's parents although concerned for the welfare of their child, want her to work out her issues with Evan herself.
Eliza insisted: "We just want everyone to be OK. It's up to them, the work and the communication is up to them."
Eric added: "They're grown-ups, well they're baby grown-ups, but they are grown-ups. You know?"
When asked how he'd feel if Emma and Evan decided to get married, the 57-year-old star said: "We will cross that bridge when it comes."
