Bruce Willis wife slams media over ‘stupid headlines’ about ‘no joy’ in his life amid dementia battle

Emma Heming responded in a heartfelt Instagram video to a headline alleging that her spouse, Bruce Willis, lacked “joy” as a result of his battle with dementia. She highlighted that, while their family is navigating grief and sadness over Bruce’s diagnosis, they still have a lot of love and joy in their life.

Emma said in the video, “The headline basically says there is no more joy in my husband. Now, I can just tell you, that is far from the truth, I need society and whoever’s writing these stupid headlines to stop scaring people.”

She also said, “Stop scaring people to think that once they get a diagnosis of some kind of neurocognitive disease that –that’s it. ‘It’s over. Let’s pack it up — Nothing else to see here. We’re done.’ No, it’s the complete opposite of that.”

Emma added, “Two things can be true and exist at the same time. Grief and deep love. Sadness and deep connection. Trauma and resilience. I had to get out of my own way to get here but once I arrived, life really started to come together with meaning and I had a true sense of purpose. There is so much beauty and soulfulness in this story.”

Bruce’s health problems started in March 2022, when he was diagnosed with aphasia, which later led to dementia. In spite of this, Bruce, Emma, and their daughters as well as the actor’s ex-wife Demi Moore and their shared children, have come together to support him.
