Hollywood actress Uma Thurman has reportedly ended her engagement with her hedge-fund billionaire fiancé Arpad Busson once again.
According to British tabloid Daily Mail, the 43-year-old Kill Bill star and the 51-year-old French financier are said to have been struggling to make their long-distance relationship work. Throughout the couple’s seven-year engagement, they have been based on opposite sides of the Atlantic – Thurman in New York and Busson in London. The first time they called off their engagement was in 2009 before rekindling their romance in 2011. A year later, Thurman gave birth to their daughter, whom they named Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson.
An insider told Us Weekly that Thurman and Busson were supposed to attend the Room to Grow Spring Gala as a couple in New York City on April 8, but it was only Thurman who turned up at the event. Several attendees and media people noticed that Thurman was not wearing her engagement ring.
The Nymphomaniac actress and Busson, who was in a previous relationship with Australian supermodel Elle MacPherson, have been dealing with an on-and-off arrangement since 2007. Thurman, on the other hand, has been married twice before – her first husband was English stage actor Gary Oldman whom she divorced 1992, and her second marriage was with Gattaca co-star Ethan Hawke, which ended in 2005.
Thurman has two other children with Hawke, a 12-year-old son named Levon and a 16-year-old daughter named Maya. While Busson has never been married before, he also has two sons with MacPherson, 11-year-old Aurelius and 16-year-old Arpad.
At the Room to Grow event, Thurman spoke with Us Weekly and gushed about raising her 21-month-old daughter. She said that she loves watching her little girl’s development and is fascinated by how fast she is growing. In Thurman’s most recent interviews, she did not give any hint of any problems in her personal life.
