Bruce Willis’s Family Faces New Health Battle as Daughter Struggles

Bruce Willis and his family have been going through a difficult time lately.

As many of you might already know, the beloved actor has been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia, a degenerative brain disease that has caused him to step away from the spotlight, possibly for good.

While there has been a lot of talk about the love and support the family has shown Bruce, recent reports shed light on the concerning state of the star’s mental health.

As Bruce’s condition worsens, the Willis family is growing increasingly worried about their daughter, Tallulah Willis, and her mental well-being.

Earlier this year, Bruce Willis’s family made the announcement about his dementia diagnosis, which came as a shock to many.

In response, Scout, his daughter, penned a heartfelt letter expressing her feelings of being “a bit overwhelmed.”

Bruce’s declining ability to communicate with others was one of the effects of his illness, leading him to make the difficult decision to retire from acting.

In February of 2023, his frontotemporal dementia diagnosis became public knowledge. Since then, the past weeks and months have been a constant struggle for the Willis family, and it seems they may now be facing another challenge.

According to Radar Online, Tallulah Willis, the daughter of Bruce and Demi Moore, has been dealing with anorexia after going through a breakup with her fiancé Dillon Buss, just months after Bruce was diagnosed with aphasia.

While not much has been reported about Tallulah’s struggle, it is now being suggested that Bruce was aware of his daughter’s pain all along.

“Bruce could see her wasting away, and it only made his own problems worse,” revealed a source to Radar. “He was devastated when he saw Tallulah suffering,” added the insider. “It got to the point where the family thought it would be better if they weren’t around each other at all.”

Tallulah opened up about her journey in a recent essay for Vogue, where she discussed how her battle with body dysmorphia began after she started taking medication for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). While she initially felt a sense of intelligence, the medication also brought about appetite suppression, which led her down a dark path.

“There’s something strangely alluring about rapid weight loss. People would say, ‘Oh wow!’ But then it quickly turned into ‘Are you okay?’ My friends and family were terrified, but I brushed off their concerns,” shared Tallulah. By the spring of 2022, she weighed a mere 84 lbs and constantly felt cold. She resorted to calling mobile IV teams to her house and even avoided walking outside in fear of not finding a place to rest.
