We can't say Emma Roberts and Evan Peters' split caught us totally off guard. The American Horror Story star has been spotted without her engagement ring for months. Still, we weren't exactly sure why these two called it quits...until now.
"They grew apart," a source told People. "They both had a lot of growing to do and it was better that they do it on their own." Given that Emma met Evan when she was just 21 on the set of indie flick, Adult World, they started dating in 2012, and got engaged shortly after in 2013, that's fair.
Emma is 24 now and Evan is 28, but both of their careers are taking off and it wouldn't be a surprise if they also wanted to focus on that before tying the knot (with anyone). The good news is it doesn't look like these two had any beef as they were breaking up.
Just Jared reported that "their three years together just ran its course." Their source also added, "They have so many great memories together but couldn't make it work in the end. The break-up was amicable – there was no drama whatsoever. Emma and Evan are even still friends!"
This is good to hear considering these two haven't had the smoothest relationship in the past. According to Entertainment Tonight, Emma was busted in Montreal in the summer of 2013 following a domestic dispute that left Evan with a bloody nose. At the time, the couple told reporters, the incident was just a "misunderstanding."
Meanwhile, Emma and Evan seem to be both moving on with their lives, with a ton of fans hoping they'll be the actor's next bae.
Keep hope alive, ladies.
