Uma Thurman Ends Engagement to Arpad Busson
Uma Uma nay. Actress Uma Thurman and fiance Arpad "Arki" Busson have called off their engagement for the second time, Us Weekly can confirm, after the actress attended a recent event without wearing her ring.
"It's true," the source tells Us of the couple. Both Thurman and the hedge-fund boss, 51, were due to attend the Room to Grow Spring Gala together in NYC on April 8, but the only one to show was the Gattaca star -- without her rock. The Daily Mail first reported the news of their broken engagement on Easter Sunday, April 20.
Thurman, who lives in New York, has been with the London-based multimillionaire investor -- albeit on-and-off again -- since 2007. Thurman first broke off their engagement in 2009, returning the mega 8-carat rock he used in his proposal. She ultimately took him back in 2011 and, a year later, gave birth to their daughter, whom they famously named Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson.
At the Room to Grow gala, Thurman spoke with Us Weekly about watching her little girl develop. "It's shockingly rapid," she said of 21-month-old baby Luna. "I mean, especially having a child later… you barely have a chance to touch them before they're spinning off in the universe."
Thurman also shares two kids, daughter Maya, 16, and son Levon, 12, with ex-husband Ethan Hawke. Busson, meanwhile, has two sons, Aurelius, 11, and Arpad, 16, with ex-girlfriend, supermodel Elle Macpherson. At the time, the two insisted their split was amicable and asserted that they would remain "the greatest of friends."
