    Sounds like Emma Roberts is putting her recent arrest for an alleged domestic dispute with her boyfriend Evan Peters behind her.

    "She's fine," her dad, actor Eric Roberts, said earlier this week at the L.A. premiere of Blue Jasmine. "We spoke. She's good."

    The starlet was arrested July 7 in Montreal after authorities were called to the hotel room she was sharing with Peters and found both with injuries, law enforcement sources told E! News.

    She was later released without incident and no charges were filed.

    "It was an unfortunate incident and misunderstanding," reps for the actors told E! News in a joint statement. "Ms. Roberts was released after questioning and the couple are working together to move past it."

    Roberts and Peters first sparked romance rumors on Valentine's Day, when they were spotted making out during a showing of Safe Haven at The Grove mall in L.A.

    Emma's stepmom, Eliza, said of the hotel incident, "We don't really know anything."

    What they do know, however, is that they will be tuning in to see Emma with Peters on the next season of American Horror Story.

    And nope, papa Roberts isn't concerned about seeing his daughter engaged in AHS' signature risqué scenes.

    "It doesn't bother me in the least," he said. "It doesn't bother me. If it doesn't bother her, it doesn't bother me."

    Emma will next be seen in We're the Millers, a comedy starring Jason Sudeikis as a small-time pot dealer who turns to his neighbors for help to smuggle a big shipment of weed into the U.S. from Mexico after he's robbed of the money he owed his suppliers. His plan includes putting together a fake family, including a stripper played by Jennifer Aniston as his wife and Emma as their daughter.

    "If I recall, no one actually smokes pot in the movie," Roberts told E! News last year. "It's more the chaos that ensues on such a ridiculous adventure. Four people, pretending to be a family to smuggle across the border is pretty funny on its own, so the stuff that goes wrong is only funny."

    We're the Millers hits theaters on Aug. 7
