The curse of New Year has taken its first casualty

Cupid’s been busy in celebsville lately – providing us with lots of meaty gossip to report.  

The other day it was all about couples reuniting (remember Sienna and Jude, Marilyn and Rachel Evan Wood) and then there’s Rusty, our new favourite celeb couple, already talking marriage after just three months together, proving even the most infamous womanisers, can be tamed by the right woman - look at Robbie Williams (rumours are still rife, that he DID propose after all, after his girlfriend/fiancé hid her ring finger from photographers the other day). The influx of romance has divided the Grazia office – the romantics are cooing, the cynics are gagging. And, as we wrote yesterday, this happens every year, but by New Year cracks will be showing… Come on, were just being realistic, Christmas is a minefield for spouses… Take the presents - he buys her a saucepan, she buys him an ‘ab belt’ (hint, hint), then the mother-in-law arrives to stick her nose in. Before you know it the gloves are off, the claws are out and you’re looking enviously at your single friends, wishing you were one of them.

Now, we can reveal, although it’s only December, the curse of New Year, has taken its first casualty. Uma Thurman has apparently called off her wedding, after an 18 months engagement. The Kill Bill star – twice married before – was rumoured to be marrying multimillionaire Arpad Busson last April. But April came and went with no nuptials. It was then expected they’d marry early next year.

But no! It’s all off! And though the cause is not yet known unknown, we’ve heard rumours the couple have been arguing over money – Arpad was a victim of the Madoff Ponzi scandal. Still he’s still worth £250million and she commands $12.5million per movie… It seems the Beatles were right – money can’t buy you love. We wonder if she gave that eight carat diamond ring back.
