Emma Willis, Bruce Willis’ wife pleads with paparazzi for ‘space’ after dementia diagnosis

Bruce Willis’ wife, Emma is begging photographers to give the actor “space” following his dementia diagnosis.

Emma  Heming Willis took to Instagram on Saturday to plead with photographers to stop following the “Die Hard” actor around.

“If you are someone who is looking after someone with dementia, you know how difficult and stressful it can be to get someone out into the world and to navigate them safely, even just to get a cup of coffee,” she said in a video clip.

“It’s clear that there’s still a lot of education that needs to be put worth. So this one is going out to the photographers and video people that are trying to get those exclusives of my husband out and about. Just keep your space.”

“I know this is your job, but maybe just keep your space. Please don’t be yelling at my husband, asking how he’s doing, whatever,” Emma continued.

“The woo-hooing and the yippee-ki-yay’s — just don’t do it. Give him the space. Allow for our family or whoever’s with him that day to be able to get him from Point A to Point B safely. That’s my PSA.”

Emma’s request comes shortly after the family disclosed in a joint statement that Bruce had been diagnosed with a frontotemporal dementia (FTD).
