(Newser) – The second time was apparently not the charm for Uma Thurman. The Daily Mail is reporting that the actress has called off her engagement to Arpad "Arki" Busson—again. A rough timeline: The two started dating in 2007, got engaged in 2008, called it off in 2009, got back together in 2011, and got engaged and had a daughter together in 2012 (and gave her a really unusual name). As for what went wrong between the French-born hedge fund manager (who has kids with Elle MacPherson) and the actress: One source says distance, with Uma in New York and Arki in London.

The proof of their split, since neither's rep commented? The fact that Uma went to an April 8 gala solo and engagement ring-less, and the fact that they've recently been seen at only "one or two" events lately, looking "miserable."
