According to People magazine, Tallulah’s parents were adamant that she seek help.
“Tallulah was pretty much given an ultimatum,” a family insider told the magazine in its new issue. “Her parents were about to take away everything from her.”
Tallulah, 20, reportedly has many issues that have friends and family worried. According to Extra, a friend said her parents’ 2000 divorce had “adversely affected” her. She apparently also struggled with Demi’s hospitalization in 2012, following her breakup with Ashton Kutcher.
“When Demi was hospitalized, Tallulah didn’t show up to school for days because she was too embarrassed,” a former classmate told People. “She was very open about Demi’s issues and would sort of imply, ‘Of course I have issues too, look at my mom.’”

Tallulah has also had to face a persistent battle with body dysmorphia.
“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,” she told StyleLikeU. “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’s body dysmorphia was accompanied by a dramatic weight loss and constant thoughts that she needed to starve herself in order to feel beautiful.
“I was trapped in this body,” Tallulah Willis told Page Six. “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 the Mirror, Tallulah is also battling alcohol and cocaine abuse and is currently seeking help at The Meadows treatment center in Arizona. Just before entering rehab Tallulah tweeted a cryptic message to friends.
