Tallulah Willis, one of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore‘s three daughters, has kept a rather low profile over the years. While she recently opened up to the public about her struggle with body dysmorphia, we generally don’t hear too much about what’s going on with her. She’s certainly not getting topless all the time like her sister, anyway. But now we have a little more insight on why that might be the case: she’s headed off to rehab for a myriad of personal issues.
“Tallulah was pretty much given an ultimatum,” a family insider tells PEOPLE in the magazine’s new issue. “Her parents were about to take away everything from her.”
Amid reports that the youngest daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis is in rehab, multiple sources confirm to PEOPLE that the 20-year-old is getting help. Her troubles go back years: A source says she was “adversely affected” by her parents’ divorce in 2000 and a former high school classmate says her mother’s hospitalization and subsequent rehab stint in 2012 also weighed heavily on her.
“When Demi was hospitalized, Tallulah didn’t show up to school for days because she was too embarrassed,” the classmate says. “She was very open about Demi’s issues and would sort of imply, ‘Of course I have issues too, look at my mom.’ ”
Sources say that both Moore and Willis have visited Tallulah at a treatment center, but the Moore source says the parents have two very different approaches to the crisis.
“If Bruce suspected that Tallulah had any kind of substance abuse problem, he would have demanded for her to get help,” the Moore source says. “Demi’s take is that Tallulah is still very young and trying to find herself.”
Well, I guess it does make sense that she would have some things to work through, especially considering what she went through with Demi, all of which happened during some pretty formative years for her. It’s a shame, really, that these things tend to get passed down through generations, but hopefully she’s able to get the help she needs and get back on track, whatever that track might be.
