Busch was married to Eva Bryan before
Previously, Kurt was hitched to Eva Bryan. Busch and his former partner got engaged while attending the 2005 Hungarian Grand Prix. These two met on a blind date and exchanged their vows in the following year.

Like any other marriage, their love story went through its fair share of highs and lows. Their love could not pass the test of true love and they parted ways in the year 2011.
