It has just come to light that Bruce Willis intends to give his three oldest children “$1 million each,” which is thought to be just 1% of his rumoured $250 million wealth.
This comes after Willis’s family recently announced the actor has been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia. He had previously been diagnosed with aphasia, a cognitive communication disorder last March.
We all know who Willis is, the sixty-seven-year-old actor is one of Hollywood’s most recognisable performers after appearing in hits such as Pulp Fiction and Die Hard.
He’s also been very public with his personal life over the years, and in the late 1980s, Willis wed Demi Moore after which the two later had three children together: Rumer, 34, Scout LaRue, 31, and Tallulah, 29.
Following the breakup of his relationship with Moore in 1998, Willis married 44-year-old model Emma Heming in 2009.
They later had two daughters of their own, Evelyn Penn, 8, and Mabel Ray, 10.
Now it’s been revealed how much he’s planning to leave them in his will.
Speaking about his illness last March, Willis’ family said in a statement: “The veteran actor has been experiencing some health issues and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive abilities.
“As a result of this and with much consideration Bruce is stepping away from the career that has meant so much to him. This is a challenging time for our family and we are so appreciative of your continued love, compassion, and support.”
They continued: “We are moving through this as a strong family unit, and wanted to bring his fans in because we know how much he means to you, as you do to him. As Bruce always says, ‘Live it up’ and together we plan to do just that.”
Since his diagnosis, Willis’s extensive family have banded together around him, offering him as much love and support as possible.
A source close to the star told Radar Online: “It seems he’s slipping further away from them, and it breaks their heart. It’s been painful to see him deteriorate. The older girls miss the old Bruce — the one who used to tease them about their boyfriends and give them unsolicited advice.”
Sadly, as hard as he’s tried, things have only gotten worse for the star. He has now been given another diagnosis.
His family announced in a statement that he has now been diagnosed with dementia: “As a family, we wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for the outpouring of love and compassion for Bruce over the past ten months,” they wrote, adding: “Your generosity of spirit has been overwhelming, and we are tremendously grateful for it. For your kindness, and because we know you love Bruce as much as we do, we wanted to give you an update. “
They continued: “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.”
Since then, it has come to light just how much the star is planning to leave his 3 children with first wife Demi Moore.
Radar Online reported that the star will give his 3 eldest daughters “$1 million each,” with an insider explaining that he wants to make sure that his “young family are taken care of.”
“He believes Rumer, Scout, and Tallulah have gotten the best of what he has to offer financially throughout their lives,” they added.
And he also feels as though they’re all doing well to make their own path and succeed in their chosen careers.
