Demi Moore and Bruce Willis were reunited this week, as they watched their daughter, Rumer Willis, compete for that coveted mirror ball trophy on Dancing With the Stars.
Rumer Willis is paired with dance pro Val Chmerkovskiy for this season’s competition, and the pair earned a final score of 32 for this week’s competition, sending the crowd–including Bruce Willis and Demi Moore–into wild cheers and loud applause.
Demi Moore and Bruce Willis were married for 13 years, and had two other daughters besides Rumer–Scout and Tallulah. Tallulah joined Bruce Willis and his second wife, Emma Heming, in one row during the competition, while Demi Moore sat just behind them.
“Demi and Bruce did not speak the entire two-hour show at all,” a source told Us Weekly.

The two had a very amicable split, however, and Bruce even came to Demi Moore’s aid when she suffered from emotional stress following her split from Ashton Kutcher some years later.
“When the opening number happened, Tallulah turned around and told her mom how excited she was to be there,” the source added. “She loved it! The best part was when Rumer danced–Tallulah in particular was losing her mind and was cheering and screaming. She was in tears and just yelling for her sister. It was adorable!”
Rumer joined Demi Moore, Bruce Willis, and the rest of her family following the competition.
“I thought my sister was going berzerk!” Rumer said. “But I had been struggling with this one part and I was keeping my eyes on them and tonight I focused and seeing them all smiling, I was amazed with how good it felt to see them.”
“It was amazing, I literally had a whole section!” she added. “I wanted people here tonight who love and support me unconditionally and I really felt that. I couldn’t have asked for anything else.”
How wonderful for Rumer Willis that despite her parents divorce, both Bruce Willis and Demi Moore were in the audience to cheer her on. Not all children–even adult children–of divorce can claim such civility exists in their family. It really is a treasure for all involved.
Will you be tuning in next week to see Rumer Willis and Val Chmerkovskiy compete on Dancing With the Stars? Do you expect Demi Moore and Bruce Willis will be back to cheer for their daughter?
