Emma Roberts' Dad

We Support Her Staying with BF After Violent Arrest

7/31/2013 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Emma Roberts
is an adult who can take care of herself -- so says the actress' dad Eric Roberts, who tells TMZ, he supports Emma's decision to stay with her BF following her domestic violence arrest this month.

As we reported, Emma was arrested in Montreal July 7th for attacking her boyfriend Evan Peters inside their hotel room, allegedly biting him and even giving him a bloody nose. Emma was eventually released because Evan didn't want to press charges. The two are still together.

But the question: how does Emma's dad feel about that? We asked and he said Emma is a grown-up who can make her own decisions ... as well as her own mistakes, and learn from them. Wise words.

But you've gotta see Eric's reaction to the obvious follow-up question -- would he support Emma MARRYING Evan?

I think it's cool that he sees his daughter and her boyfriend as people and doesn't try to control their lives (also, that's sometimes a hard lesson for addicts -- and non-addicts, while I am thinking about it -- to learn).

There is nothing wrong with liking it rough but if my said bf ended up with a bloody note and a bite etc it would raise a few eyebrows in my household, that said beating up the bf is never cute
