The Willis family has been through a lot in recent months, and unfortunately, their struggles are far from over. The iconic actor, known for his roles in Die Hard and many other movies, was first diagnosed with aphasia, which affects one’s ability to communicate. Since then, Bruce’s family has been incredibly supportive and updated his fans on his condition.
Bruce’s journey took another problematic turn when he was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia. This news has profoundly impacted his wife, ex-wife, and daughters.
In particular, his daughter Tallulah, whom he shares with Demi Moore, has been facing challenges with her mental health that have intensified as her father’s condition worsens.
Tallulah spoke courageously about her battle with anorexia following her breakup with fiancé Dillon Buss, which happened less than three months after Bruce’s aphasia diagnosis.
According to reports, Bruce was greatly distressed by his daughter’s suffering and could see how she was deteriorating. This only added to his struggles.
The toll of their health battles became so overwhelming that the family considered avoiding each other’s company altogether. It’s a heartbreaking situation for everyone involved.
Tallulah was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder after seeking in-patient treatment following her breakup. In a moving essay she wrote for Vogue Magazine, she shared that her struggles with body dysmorphia began when she started taking medication for ADHD.
Although she initially felt a sense of intelligence and enjoyed the appetite-suppressing effects of the drug, her self-image quickly spiraled out of control.
As she lost weight rapidly, Tallulah began to receive concern from friends and family. However, she dismissed their worries, finding a strange allure in her unhealthy path.
By 2022, she weighed only 84 lbs and experienced constant coldness. She even had to call mobile IV teams to her house at one point. Her fear of not having a place to rest prevented her from walking in her neighborhood.
We can only hope that Tallulah finds the strength to overcome her health issues and that the Willis family can navigate these challenging times with love and support.
