Uma Thurman is thought to have separated from multi-millionaire fiancé Arpad Busson after an on-off relationship lasting seven years. Throughout their engagement the duo have lived on opposite sides of the Atlantic, with the Kill Bill actress based in New York and her partner in London.
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.
A few weeks ago the couple were due to attend a gala together in the Big Apple – but Arki, as he’s known to friends, didn’t turn out. Meanwhile, the silver screen beauty appeared not to be wearing her engagement ring.
Uma and the French hedge fund tycoon have had breaks before, most significantly in 2009 when she gave him back his eight-carat sparkler. The split was short lived and the lovers were back in each other’s arms a few months later.
For years they’ve been juggling family commitments in different parts of the world. In July 2012, Uma gave birth to their daughter Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence, known as Luna for short.
She is also mother to 14-year-old Maya and Levon, 10, from her marriage to Ethan Hawke.
Arki, 51, has two sons – Flynn, 16, and Aurelius Cy, 10 – from his relationship with Elle Macpherson. The Australian supermodel recently married Miami property mogul Jeffrey Soffer.
In her most recent interviews Uma gave no hint that there were any problems in her personal life. “I’m happier now than I’ve been in many, many years,” she has said. “I’m trying to live as peaceful a personal life as possible.”
