Symptoms of Bruce Willis have worsened

Now, in an interview published by the Bild newspaper, a person close to the actor claims that his symptoms have worsened. The symptoms first began to show up in Bruce Willis, as reported by the British newspaper Daily Mail, two years earlier.

During the filming sessions in which the actor was present, people present could already sense that something was not right. He had difficulty in holding conversations, coupled with not being able to connect words correctly.

German newspaper Bild has published an interview with Wilfried Gliem, who claims to be Bruce Willis’ uncle-in-law. In the conversation, Gliem reveals what the actor’s mother, Marlene Willis, thinks.

“She says she is not sure that her son recognizes her, that his behavior is slow and a bit aggressive,” Gliem commented.

“It’s not possible to have a normal conversation. Bruce’s mother keeps us informed. We call each other once a month.”

“Scout and Tallulah are two very strong girls who are now there for their father, just as he used to be there for them.”

Bruce’s wife, Emma Heming had opened up after she was criticized by netizens that she was using Willis’ diagnosis for ‘five minutes’ fame. Heming has been married to the “Die Hard” actor since 2009. She recently revealed that her husband’s battle with aphasia has progressed into Frontotemporal Dementia. Since then, Heming has made it her goal to raise awareness for Willis’ condition.
