Alongside a photo of Bruce Willis, his wife Emma Hemming-Willis (43) wrote some emotional lines. "To Bruce’s amazing supporters, as a family we wanted to share that our beloved Bruce 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."
The statement goes on to say: "This is a really challenging time for our family and we are so appreciative of your continued love, compassion and support. 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."
She ends the post with a quote from her husband: "As Bruce always says, “Live it up” and together we plan to do just that." It is not clear if and when Bruce Willis will ever come out in public again.
