For Emma Heming, enough is enough. Since announcing that Bruce Willis has dementia, the 44-year-old model has had to regularly respond to criticism and make updates. A few days ago, she made a heartbreaking appeal to the paparazzi. “This video is for the paparazzi trying to get exclusive photos and videos of my husband: stay in your place! Don’t yell my husband’s name, don’t ask him how he is. Stop telling him ‘ Yippee-ki-yay’ [son expression dans Die Hard, ndlr], she was very annoyed in a video posted on her Instagram account.If you take care of a person suffering from dementia, you know how much it can be difficult and stressful to help this person to live, and even to have a cup of coffee…”
But after the publication of this message, Emma Heming was the target of virulent Internet users who reproached her for obtaining her “moment of glory thanks to the illness of her husband”. Despicable criticism to which the wife of Bruce Willis was quick to respond firmly, always on Instagram. “I will take my five minutes of flora and I will turn it into 10 because I will always defend my husband, she assured. to caregivers, who are unsung heroes. And then I’m going to turn my grief, my anger and my sadness and do something good around something that feels less good to me.” Emma Heming was quickly praised by her Instagram followers, including Bruce Willis’ daughter, Scout LaRue Willis.
