(Newser) – The engagement is off between Uma Thurman and hedge fund manager Arpad Busson. Thurman, once-divorced and mother to two children by Ethan Hawke, announced her engagement to the financier—who has two children himself with Elle MacPherson—in the summer of 2008. Cindy Adams theorizes the breakup could have somehow been sparked by Busson losing a bundle in the Bernie Madoff scheme, she writes in the New York Post.
