Uma Thurman Is Awarded Primary Custody of Her Daughter
Uma Thurman signed an agreement that gives her primary custody of her four-year-old daughter, Luna.
“It’s a wonderful thing to have closure,” Thurman told reporters on Friday (Jan. 27, 2017) outside Manhattan Supreme Court, according to Page Six.
Busson will have monthly visitation with Luna. The judge overseeing the case reportedly encouraged Thurman and Busson to remain amicable for the sake of their daughter.
“At this point, Luna has all the advantages in life. She has two parents who love her, two parents who amply provide for her,” Justice Matthew Cooper said. “The only thing that’s lacking—and I hope it’s forthcoming—is that her parents can reach some sort of place in life where they can put aside their rancor and their anger against one another and can join together—never loving each other or even liking each other—at least being able to cooperate.”
Thurman and Busson were engaged in 2008, temporarily split in 2009, and welcomed their daughter in 2012 before breaking up in 2014. She shares two children with her second husband Ethan Hawke, from whom she separated in 2005.
