Emma Roberts is reportedly dating a new man.

The Scream Queens star only split from her long-term boyfriend Evan Peters last month but it seems she's wasting no time getting in to another relationship as she's now romancing a handsome guy called Christopher Hines after they were introduced through mutual friend fashion designer Brit Elkin recently.

A source told Us Magazine: "Chris is one of the most understanding and laid-back guys. They've been dating for a little under a month."

And the 25-year-old actress certainly isn't afraid to parade her new man in public as they were spotted holding hands while wandering around the streets of London earlier this week.


However, Emma's new relationship status will no doubt come as a shock to fans as she only split from Evan - who she has dated on and off for four years - a few weeks ago.

The former lovers reportedly split on amicable terms in May but are keen to remain friends.

Emma - who is the niece of Julia Roberts - began dating Evan in 2012 after they met on the set of their film Adult World.

The 29-year-old hunk then proposed to the actress in December 2013 but their engagement lasted less than two years as it was thought they'd called time on their relationship in June last year.

However, they then set tongues wagging once again two months later when they were spotted enjoying an intimate dinner in Los Angeles, California, just days after Evan attended the premiere of Emma's show Scream Queens.
