Demi Moore’s daughter Tallulah is getting Bruce Willis’ attention after she shared in a cryptic tweet that she intended to go “bai bai.” Bruce Willis and Demi Moore have taken their youngest daughter Tallulah’s message seriously and have reportedly checked her into rehab, reports People on Aug. 16. According to WebProNews, Tallulah Willis is in rehab for cocaine and alcohol issues and has been given an ultimatum by her parents to get clean or “her parents were about to take away everything from her."
Tallulah Belle Willis is Demi Moore’s and Bruce Willis’ youngest daughter and was born on the third of February in 1994. Her two older sisters are Rumer Willis (born Aug. 16, 1988) and Scout LaRue Willis (born July 20, 1991). At the time of her famous parents’ divorce on Oct. 18, 2000, Tallulah was six years old.
By the age of 20, Tallulah has done work as an actress (“Bandits” in 2001, “The Whole Ten Yards” in 2004, and “The Scarlet Letter” in 1995) but is mainly known as a fashion blogger. Tallulah credits her mom's iconic style for influencing her for her passion for fashion. However, Demi Moore's influence on her youngest daughter go beyond fashion and body image. A family insider told People that the youngest daughter of Demi and Bruce was "adversely affected" by her parents' divorce in 2000, and that the troubles she is facing now are not recent but go back a few years. One of Tallulah's former high school classmates said that Demi's hospitalization and rehab in 2012 left her daughter with feelings of embarrassment.
Earlier this summer, Bruce Willis’ youngest daughter made some painful confessions in a video posted on StyleLikeU.com:
"I struggled a lot when I was younger. I was] reading those stupid f–––––– tabloids when I was, like, 13, feeling like I was just ugly, always. I believed the strangers more than the people that loved me, because why would the people who loved me be honest?"
Tallulah added that she was diagnosed with body dysmorphia, a type of chronic mental illness in which someone continuously thinks about some flaw in one’s appearance – be it real or imaginary. Body dismorphic disorder, also known as dysmorphophobia, is an intense obsession over one's appearance and body image and can intervene with someone's ability to function in daily life. Most often, the desperate attempt to deal with a negative body image can result in unnecessary cosmetic procedures, excessive behavior like exercise, or in severe cases the path to drugs and alcohol.
According to the above video, Tallulah admits that her biggest insecurity has been her face. The daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis also confesses that she has been dealing with a situation that had been building for a while. "She's been dealing with some unhappiness, and everything sort of came to a head." Both parents have reportedly visited their daughter at the rehab center, but while Bruce Willis is asserting his role as a father to do everything possible to get his youngest daughter the help that she needs, Demi Moore is taking a different approach. "Demi's take is that Tallulah is still very young and trying to find herself."
