  • Hollywood's Uma Thurman will give back eight-carat engagement ring as her relationship with Elle Macpherson's ex Arpad 'Arki' Busson ends.

    Actress Uma Thurman has ended her engagement to fiancé Arpad ‘Arki’ Busson.

    The 39 year-old Kill Bill star is said to have split from the multi-millionaire financier last month.

    The pair got together in 2007 and had been engaged for over a year, with Thurman seen sporting a glittering eight-carat engagement ring.

    A source close to the actress said: ‘She will probably give it back. She wants to return everything that is his’.

    ‘The engagement ended a while ago – but they remain friends.’

    This comes just weeks after her September declaration ‘I’m happily engaged but we haven’t set the wedding up’.

    ‘I’m not in a rush.’

    Mr Busson, who split for long-term partner and fiancée Elle Macpherson in 2005, is said to be ‘beside himself‘ at the break-up.

    Insiders are blaming the couple’s transatlantic living arrangements for relationship strains.

    Mr Busson, who was born in Africa but raised in Paris, lives in London where Miss Macpherson and the couple’s two children, eleven-year-old Arpad and six-year-old Aurelius live.

    Meanwhile, Miss Thurman found it difficult to uproot from her Los Angeles base, where her kids Maya, 11, and Levon, six, go to school and have regular contact with their father, the actor Ethan Hawke.
