Uma Thurman and her fiance Arpad Busson have decided to call it quits. Read on for the facts on Busson and the couple’s split.
1. This Is the Second Time the Couple Has Called Off Their Engagement
Uma Thurman and Arpad Busson have reportedly called off their engagement once before. Us Weekly states:
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.
Thurman first broke off their engagement in 2009 and gave back her 8-carat diamond ring. They got back together in 2011.
2. Busson Failed to Show Up to a Gala With Thurman
According to Us Weekly, the couple were supposed to attend the Room to Grow Spring Gala together in Manhattan on April 8, 2014. However, only Thurman showed up and she was not wearing her engagement ring.
3. They Have a Daughter With a Famously Long Name
In 2012, Thurman gave birth to the couple’s daughter, who is known for her incredibly long name: Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson. In addition to their child together, both Busson and Thurman each have two other children. Us Weekly writes:
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.
4. The News of Their Break Up Came Out on Easter
The Daily Mail reported news of the couple’s split on Easter Sunday, April 20, 2014. Hello Magazine reports:
Sightings of them together have been few and far between since last year, reports the Mail on Sunday. In February they attended a BAFTA party in Britain thrown by Miramax mogul Harvey Weinstein.
5. Busson Is a Hedge Fund Boss
Thurman is based in New York, but has been with the London-based multimillionaire investor since 2007 in an on-again-off-again relationship. Perhaps location was a factor in the split. Busson is a hedge fund boss who is reportedly worth $200 million.
In the past, Thurman said that she cannot move anywhere besides New York because her children’s father Ethan Hawke resides there as well.
