Bruce Willis, Demi Moore, Reportedly Check Daughter Into RehabBy: Mike Tuttle - August 17, 2014
Tallulah Willis, the youngest of three daughters of actor Bruce Willis and actress Demi Moore, has reportedly been sent to rehab.
Tallulah, 20, has struggled with drug abuse for years and, at times, was very public about it. This is no surprise considering that her own mother has made frequent visits to The Meadows in Wickenburg, Arizona, the same treatment center in which Tallulah is now residing.
“When Demi was hospitalized,” a classmate said. “Tallulah didn’t show up to school for days because she was too embarrassed. She was very open about Demi’s issues and would sort of imply, ‘Of course I have issues too, look at my mom.’”
But after her older sister, Scout, witnessed Tallulah snorting cocaine at a party, Bruce got involved.
“Tallulah was pretty much given an ultimatum,” an insider said. “Her parents were about to take away everything from her.”
Unfortunately Demi, her mother, isn’t as strict about her daughter’s condition.
“Demi’s take is that Tallulah is still very young and trying to find herself,” a source said.
But Demi’s own hospitalization and rehab really took a toll on Tallulah, especially in 2012 after the Indecent Proposal actress broke an eight-year marriage to actor Ashton Kutcher and took to drug use and exhibiting bizarre public behavior.
In addition to her own personal drug abuse, Tallulah also suffers from body dysmorphic disorder, a mental illness in which the person believes that their own appearance is unusually defective.
“I’m diagnosed with body dysmorphia with reading those stupid f**cking tabloids when I was like 13 and feeling like I was ugly, like always,” Tallulah said. “I believed the strangers more than the people who loved me because why would the people who love me be honest? That made me start to dress showing off my boobs and my butt and those things that I was getting attention for. It was like denim short shorts, and push up bras so they were sticking to my neck.”
Tallulah went on to say, “I was trapped in this body. I started starving myself and losing a bunch of weight and I got down to like 95 pounds. When I lost my curves and when my boobs shriveled up into like nothing and I had no shape, it put me in even more of a cage.”
According to reports, the fashion blogger has been at The Meadows since July after posting a cryptic photo to Twitter.
No word as to when Tallulah will be released.
