Emma Roberts

Friends Worried

She's the Next LiLo

Emma Roberts'
recent domestic violence arrest came as a SHOCK to the public ... but not to some of her friends ... who fear the actress is headed down a deep, dark path a la Lindsay Lohan.

Sources close to Emma tell TMZ ... over the last year Emma has dug herself deep into the L.A. party scene. We're told it all started after she broke up with "Glee" star Chord Overstreet -- she began going out all night, hitting the clubs and surrounding herself with people who don't keep their noses clean.

Our sources say a lot of Emma's friends don't know how to help her because Emma won't  acknowledge the change in her behavior.

Indeed, we're told after her arrest ... Emma wouldn't talk to her friends about it, acting like nothing happened.  Her friends are convinced ... a night of partying contributed to the brawl and the arrest.

TMZ broke the story ... Emma was arrested​ in Canada earlier this month, after she allegedly gave her boyfriend a bloody nose during a blow-out fight.  Sources connected with Emma say it was mutual combat.  The matter was dropped after her BF chose not to press charges.

This is Lindsay's new OWN show - Search for the Next LiLo. Emma and Justin are going to have a projectile vomiting contest judged by Lindsay. Spitting, shoplifting, driving challenges and more are added for points before elimination.

I can't believe she is going to get away with assaulting another person. She better hope she doesn't get arrested in the US since the cops wouldn't need her idiot boyfriend to press charges.

Let's not screw up another young girl guys! Leave her alone and everything will be just fine. She's not doing anything that any of us haven't really done before ourselves. It's a called growing up. LET IT GO!

Emma Roberts would have to be one of the worst cases of nepotism in Hollywood which is saying a lot, since the place is riddled with nepotism. She absolutely cannot act, is rather plain and nobody in the biz would give her a second glance is she wasn't related to Julia and Eric, tall and slim and at least non-ugly. She's taking away opportunities that would make some super talented young lady's dream come true.

OK why is TMZ not telling the whole story...this article is NOT complete they chose to mention her former celebrity boyfriends name. (that has nothing to do with her current problems) but yet didn't mention her current boyfriends name that was the victim of her anger/self-defense. OK TMZ what are you hiding or who are you pandering to. Sounds like maybe Ryan Murphy or FOX made a phone call and requested to protect their employees name. wonder if this comment gets posted??

Looks like in this case Aunt Julia Roberts PR is on overdrive. Those bruises are of a person who was being pushed off and banging into tables and falling on her knees on the floor. Looks like her BF was desperately trying to push her off but she kept coming at him like a piranha. Funny how all these stories are from HER people and they all try to deflect it onto the BF as "mutual combat". Nice try, TMZ and other news outlets. Man I tell you, when little white actresses mess up, the media goes into overdrive trying to deflect all they can. Remover when Kristen Stewart was treated like a victim for literally sleeping with a married men whose children she took out for ice cream and wife she hung out with? What gives? Why do these grown women not have to face the same repercussions us regular people do? Annoying.

Julia, Eric... It's time for an intervention ya'll! The thing that made wonder about her potentially slipping, was last Halloween when she went as her Auntie Julia in her stripper attire from Pretty Woman... That definitely set off a red-flag for me!

looks like Emma has already started following in the footsteps of her famous aunt......flat on her back, legs over her head for any male star she can get her hands on. Bravo

Not the next lohan the next eric Roberts come on the short memories eric was oen of the original party your way out of Hollywood boys so much so auntie Julia wouldn't have anything to do with him for a long time. And got black balled over his drug use and erratic behavior from Hollywood for a long time never fully recovered. don't throw it on Julia though the apple does fall far from dads tree.

The only reason she has a career is because of her aunt. (Her dad isn't that good.) She has no talent and people have stopped giving her jobs just for the curiosity factor.
