The news has caused a stir among many fans of the Die Hard star. On Wednesday March 30, the family of Bruce Willis announced on Instagram that the 67-year-old actor was ending his career. A decision all the more sudden as the revelation that accompanies it, that of his aphasia, a neurological disorder that alters language. A pathology that would explain his gradual withdrawal from leading projects. Despite these sad circumstances, Bruce Willis can count on the support of his large family. Sources close to the star told People that his wife, Emma Heming, spares no expense in caring for her husband.
Very affected by the diagnosis of the father of her two daughters, Evelyn, seven, and Mabel ten, the fashion designer and model wanted to “hold on” for them, reports People. To take care of Bruce Willis, Emma Heming calls on specialists, “several professionals help her”, confide the sources again. Daily help supported by “an assistant at home” on whom the young woman can count to take care of the one who has shared her life since 2009. The latter has ensured that he sees “the best doctors” since the knowledge of his aphasia. This little-known disorder is not to be taken lightly since it affects, in some cases, writing, in addition to the ability to express oneself orally, and can even affect the understanding of language.
