Uma and Arpad ended their relationship the first time around on a cordial note. But their second time was not even close to that. They both contested fiercely to gain custody of their daughter Luna Thurman-Busson. Uma claimed that her former lover has an addiction to prostitutes. As for Arpad, he complained that she mixed alcohol with prescription pills. Things got so heated up that a judge even scolded them with a “Reasonable people work these things out” remark. 

It was also reported that Busson was unhappy with Uma’s choice of school for their girl. He felt that St. Ann’s school had a “depressing” atmosphere with “small classrooms that were cluttered.” He also thought the children “looked dirty and disheveled.” This upset not just Uma but also “a lot of Brooklyn Heights parents.” The custody fight got finally over in 2017, with Uma getting primary custody. She felt “wonderful” and relieved “to have closure.” Luna’s dad got permission to visit monthly.
