On Saturday, reps for Uma Thurman confirmed that she was engaged to her boyfriend of one year, Arpad Busson. Uma is mostly known for her role as Mia Wallace in Pulp Fiction and she has also starred in Kill Bill and My Super Ex-Girlfriend. Arki, as he’s known to friends, is a financial expert. From People,
“I can confirm she is engaged,” Stephen Huvane said on Friday. New York’s Daily News was first to report the engagement.
On Saturday, the couple themselves made the announcement, on page 75 of London’s The Times.
Under the heading “Mr A. Busson and Miss U. Thurman,” it reads, “The engagement is announced between Arpad, son of Mr Pascal Busson, of Paris, and Mrs Florence Harcourt-Smith, of South of France, and Uma, daughter of Mr and Mrs Robert A. F. Thurman of New York.”
In return for saying yes, the actress received some serious sparkle: an 8-plus carat center stone surrounded by 20 smaller stones. “It’s the most beautiful piece I’ve ever seen,” says a close source of the diamond ring. “Arki did a wonderful job.”
Well and with all that money you would hope so. I guess the next order of business is a prenup. Not only do these two both have scads of money but they have also both proven that they may not be experts in the relationship department. Uma is hoping that the third time’s the charm as she has been married to Gary Oldman, which ended in 1992 and she then married Ethan Hawke. Four years and two children later, that marriage also ended in heartache. Oldman has never been married but did have two children with his longtime girlfriend Elle Macpherson.
