Hedge Fund Manager Aprad Busson and Actress Uma Thurman Break off Their Engagement.
Uma Thurman and her hedge fund manager fiancé, Arpad Busson, have split up.
This is the second time Uma, 43, has broken off an engagement with French-born hedge fund tycoon since they began dating in 2007.
In 2009 she returned an eight-carat diamond ring to him a year after he first proposed.
She took him back in 2011, and by 2012 they were engaged again, with Uma pregnant with their first child, Rosalind. She has not been seen without her engagement ring since – until now.
Uma has two children from her earlier marriage to actor Ethan Hawke. Arki, 51, has two sons from a relationship with supermodel Elle Macpherson.
The couple became engaged—for the second time—in 2012, the same year that they welcomed their first child together. They had previously dated from 2007 through 2009, when Thurman ended their first engagement, and got back together in 2011.
Thurman’s and Busson’s relationship has reportedly been strained by distance: She lives in New York and he in London.
Last year, Busson agreed to sell his Swiss fund of funds EIM to Gottex Fund Management, joining the latter firm as chairman.
