Bruce Willis’ Wife Emma Begs Paparazzi to Stop Shouting at her Husband After he was Filmed in Public

Ema Hemming Willis asks the paparazzi to stop shouting at her husband after his dementia diagnosis.

In an emotional video on Instagram, Emma shared that ever since Bruce’s Dementia diagnosis, it’s been hard to get him out in public, and when he finally went outside to have coffee with his friends in Santa Monica, the 67-year-old Die Hard star was surrounded with photographers who kept shouting and asking questions from him about his health.

The 44-year-old model said in her video, “If you are someone who is looking after someone with dementia, you know how difficult and stressful it can be to get someone out into the world and to navigate them safely, even just to get a cup of coffee.”

She added, “It’s clear that there’s still a lot of education that needs to be put worth. So this one is going out to the photographers and video people that are trying to get those exclusives of my husband out and about. Just keep your space.”

Recalling Willis’ last week hangout, Emma said he was made uncomfortable by the paparazzi who bombarded him with lots of questions.

“I know this is your job, but maybe just keep your space,” she said. “Please don’t be yelling at my husband, asking how he’s doing, whatever. The woo-hooing and the yippee-ki-yay’s — just don’t do it. Give him the space. Allow for our family or whoever’s with him that day to be able to get him from Point A to Point B safely. That’s my PSA.”

Last month, the Pulp Fiction alum’s family shared a new painful update on the actor’s condition and diagnosis.

In her Instagram update, the eldest daughter of the Die Hard actor revealed that he has been diagnosed with untreatable frontotemporal dementia (FTD).

“Our family wanted to start by expressing our deepest gratitude for the incredible outpouring of love, support and wonderful stories we have all received since sharing Bruce’s original diagnosis. In the spirit of that, we wanted to give you an update about our beloved husband, father and friend since we now have a deeper understanding of what he is experiencing,” the caption read.

“Since we announced Bruce’s diagnosis of aphasia in spring 2022, Bruce’s condition has progressed and we now have a more specific diagnosis: frontotemporal dementia (known as FTD). Unfortunately, challenges with communication are just one symptom of the disease Bruce faces. While this is painful, it is a relief to finally have a clear diagnosis.”

The Willis family thanked all the fans and well-wishers for their love and gratitude and requested prayers.

The family, including the star’s ex-wife Demi Moore, second wife, Emma Hemming Willis, and his daughters – Rumer, Scout, and Tallulah shared a complete statement regarding Bruce’s new diagnosis and posted it on The Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration‘s website.

“FTD is a cruel disease that many of us have never heard of and can strike anyone. For people under 60, FTD is the most common form of dementia, and because getting the diagnosis can take years, FTD is likely much more prevalent than we know. Today there are no treatments for the disease, a reality that we hope can change in the years ahead,” they wrote.

“As Bruce’s condition advances, we hope that any media attention can be focused on shining a light on this disease that needs far more awareness and research.”

They continued, “Bruce always believed in using his voice in the world to help others, and to raise awareness about important issues both publicly and privately. We know in our hearts that – if he could today — he would want to respond by bringing global attention and a connectedness with those who are also dealing with this debilitating disease and how it impacts so many individuals and their families.”
