Uma Thurman might be engaged


Uma Thurman, 37, is engaged to her Swiss millionaire boyfriend, according to reports. They’ve only been together for a few months, but supposedly Arpad Busson, 44, has proposed to the actress and mother of two.

The ‘Kill Bill’ actress, who has only been dating banker Arpad ‘Arki’ Busson since the summer, was said to be shocked and delighted when Arpad proposed to her last week.

A source said: “They have only been together a few months, but Arpad was determined to snap Uma up as quickly as possible. They make a great couple and are totally smitten with each other.”

The couple are yet to set a wedding date or choose a location for the nuptials.

Thurman and Busson met this summer. in July at a dinner in Milan hosted by Gianni Versace and Tony Blair (Update: commentor Jen UK notes that Gianni Versace died in 1997, so they couldn’t have met there. It’s possible the mention of their meeting is taken out of context and applies to Busson and Elle Macpherson, not Busson and Thurman. The Wikipedia entry may have been edited to make it seem as if that sentence applied to the wrong woman.) Busson is an investment banker and earned his fortune through starting his own hedge fund business in 1992. He dated Farrah Fawcett when he was young and was with Elle Macpherson for around three years, fathering two children with her. Busson and Macpherson split up July, 2005.

Wikipedia notes that Macpherson said that Busson would not marry a divorced woman despite having two children with her, as he is a devout Catholic. So either he has changed his mind or this news isn’t true. Thurman divorced her second husband and the father of her two children, Ethan Hawke, in 2004 after rumors of his infidelity with a young Canadian model. She was last linked to hotelier Andre Balazs, and seems to have had a tumultuous relationship with him as there were stories that they broke up several times.

Busson lives in London while Thurman lives in Hyde Park, NY.
