The source said that although Willis had not been diagnosed with incipient dementia, “he has been waging a personal war for a number of years.”

“His wife Emma has helped Demi Moore and the children Bruce shares with his ex-wife negotiate truces because they know he is fading,” the unnamed source told the magazine in January 2021.

“Between Demi and Emma, ​​the family has always made sure that Bruce has the support and care he needs at all times,” the insider said. “It’s sad that people laugh at him.”

According to the magazine, Willis was previously seen wearing an earpiece to give him lines during his Broadway debut in Misery in 2015, and the unnamed insider also said he struggled during the filming of M. Night Shyamalan’s 2019 film Glass. .
