Uma Thurman Engaged To Wealthy Financier, Elle's Ex

Update: Uma Thurman is engaged to her financier boyfriend Arpad "Arki" Busson, a rep for the actress confirms to Usmagazine.com.

And the ring is huge:

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."


Uma Thurman, who played The Bride in "Kill Bill," is ready to walk down the aisle again with financier Arpad (Arki) Busson, sources tell the Daily News.

Busson, who has two children with supermodel Elle Macpherson, just presented Thurman with a engagement ring so big "she can't fit it through the sleeve of her coat," a friend said.

Thurman showed off the honkin' sparkler Thursday night at Elton John's British manor house, where he's throwing his 10th White Tie and Tiara benefit.

"All the ladies' eyes were buggin' out," said a spy at the Chopard-sponsored bash.

Thurman's spokesman didn't respond by deadline but a friend of her family confirmed, "It's a done deal. They're already planning the wedding."
