Emma Heming Willis, Bruce Willis’s wife, responded negatively to criticism of her celebrity status by promising to “always speak for my husband.”
To those who have criticized her, Emma Heming Willis has a rebuttal ready.
After being accused of manipulating her husband’s diagnosis of frontotemporal dementia for attention, she recently took to social media to defend herself.
Emma stated on March 7: “I just noticed something about my getting my ‘5 minutes,’ which is amazing, which implies that you’re listening. If I have five minutes to talk, I’m going to make it ten because I’m always going to speak up for my spouse.
The 44-year-old, who has two kids with the Die Hard star, Mabel, 10, and Evelyn, 8, vowed to “raise awareness about FTD” and their caretakers.
In the face of her loss, Emma decided to channel her negative emotions into productive action. Keep an eye on this place; I didn’t come to mess around.
She echoed this sentiment in the post’s description, stating, “I’ve been a bystander for far too long, and now I’m ready to embrace and be accepted by the strong and wonderful community my family and I have found ourselves in. Well, let’s get going.”
Bruce and Demi Moore’s three daughters, Rumer, 34, Tallulah, 29, and Scout, 31, all chimed in to show their approval of Emma’s post “TO THE MAX! Very Proud of You”
Furthermore, Emma’s supporters came out in force, with one user commenting, “Wow, way to represent the ladies! You have a large group of individuals supporting you.”
Bruce’s family announced his FTD diagnosis on Instagram on February 16. At the time, they noted, “challenges with communication are just one indication of the condition Bruce encounters.” Close family members had previously reported that Bruce had been diagnosed with aphasia, a disorder that hinders one’s ability to communicate, over a year before this update on his health.
Even while Bruce fights for his health, Emma has taken to social media to explain the disease and defend him.
A lot more effort still has to be put into educating the public, she said in a video posted on March 4. “To all the photographers and videographers out there wanting to get their hands on those exclusives of my husband, please respect our privacy. It’s your work, but if you could please just be left alone.”
