Emma Roberts has a new man in her life.

Earlier this week, the Scream Queens actress was spotted strolling arm-in-arm with Christopher Hines in London, and a source confirms to PEOPLE the duo are newly dating.

“They met through her best friend,” says the source about Roberts’ close stylist pal Brit Smith. “Brit is dating Christopher’s brother.”

Earlier this year, Roberts and her ex-fiancé Evan Peters appeared to rekindle their romance after breaking off their engagement last June.

The actress and Hines was also seen attending the Coachella music festival with their pals last month.
