When we hear her name, we often picture her in her major role from “Kill Bill,” but in recent news, Uma Thurman has taken the spotlight in a child custody battle with her former fiancé over their 4-year-old daughter, Luna. Thurman and Arpad Busson had been together from 2007 through 2014 until they decided to call it quits. Trouble was, they had their daughter together and both now want some sort of custody over her. Thurman currently has her daughter for the majority of the time, yet Busson filed suit against her asking for more time to be granted.
Difficulties that Arise in a Child Custody Battle
Thurman and Busson’s case is one that highlights what can go wrong when two individuals who were once in love despise each other. According to Dr. Sara Weiss, who is an expert psychologist, she stated that “she does not believe Thurman and her ex can be together with their daughter at the same time.” The two clearly have unresolved issues and according the Weiss, it isn’t healthy for them to spend any time together. According to People.com, Thurman currently wants to restrict the time Busson has with Luna as he has two separate homes, one in London and the other in the Bahamas.
Unfortunately, this is one of the difficulties that often arise out of a custody matter. Parents who no longer want to be together must somehow manage to make arrangements so that their children are less effected by the outcome of the separation. One parent cannot just shut the other out of their child’s life without good reason.
Another issue that the couple has experienced is that their custody battle is open for public speculation. The family law attorneys representing the two have asked for the matter to be sealed, yet that request was denied. So not only is Thurman struggling with having her image broken down, but also with the fact that she and her former fiancé cannot come to an agreement as they aren’t on good terms.
