Bruce Willis’s family facing tragic new health battle as daughter struggles

Prayers for the Willis family. First Bruce, and now his daughter. They didn’t deserve this.

The Willis family has faced numerous challenges in recent months, and their difficulties are still ongoing.

Since the famous actor from Die Hard was diagnosed with a communication disorder, there has been a lack of news. His family has been very supportive and keeps his fans informed about Bruce’s condition.

Bruce withdrew from from the spotlight, and later on, he was diagnosed with a more specific condition; frontotemporal dementia.

Rumer Willis, Bruce’s daughter, took to social media to express our family’s heartfelt appreciation for the overwhelming love, support, and amazing stories we have received after sharing Bruce’s initial diagnosis.

We would like to provide you with an update on our dear husband, father, and friend. We now have a better understanding of his current situation, and we wanted to share it with you.

Bruce’s condition has worsened since we shared his diagnosis of aphasia in spring 2022. Now, we have a more precise diagnosis for him, which is frontotemporal dementia (FTD).

Bruce’s wife, ex-wife, and daughters are all impacted by his illness. Tallulah, his daughter with Demi Moore, is facing mental health challenges that worsen as her father’s condition deteriorates.

Tallulah spoke openly of her anorexia after she was dumped by her fiancè Dillon Buss less than three months after her father’s aphasia diagnosis.

Reports indicate that Bruce is cognizant of his daughter’s distress.

According to Radar, a source mentioned that Bruce noticed her deteriorating health, which exacerbated his own issues.

Bruce was devastated upon witnessing Tallulah’s pain, the source continued.

The family reached a point where they believed it would be best to avoid each other completely.

Tallulah has been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder after she checked into an in-patient facility following the breakup.

Tallulah shared in her essay for Vogue Magazine that her battle with body dysmorphia started when she began using medication for ADHD.

Tallulah expressed feeling intelligent after taking her medication. Additionally, she found pleasure in the appetite-suppressing effect of the medicine. This allowed her to envision transforming from an awkward adolescent into a whimsical pixie. Unfortunately, like many individuals with eating disorders, her self-perception became distorted.

At the start of losing weight quickly, there is a tempting but unhealthy satisfaction. People react with surprise and then concern. My loved ones were scared, but I ignored their worries.

In spring 2022, when I was 29 years old, I weighed around 84 lbs. I felt constantly cold and had to call mobile IV teams to come to my house. I couldn’t even walk in my Los Angeles neighborhood because I feared not finding a spot to sit and rest.

We sincerely wish for Tallulah to conquer her health challenges.
