Moore is by Willis’ side as he battles his illness.
Former couple Demi Moore and Bruce Willis were married for 13 years before they divorced in 2000. However, what started as a painful separation, turned into something special.
The actress discussed the pair’s divorce in her memoir, “Inside Out,” and shared the most unconventional statement, saying she was glad they ended their marriage.”It’s a funny thing to say, but I’m very proud of our divorce,” Moore penned in her book. She added her then-estranged spouse feared she would make their breakup unbearable by lashing out her “anger and whatever baggage” she had from their union to restrict access to their offspring.
Ultimately, Willis thought Moore would resort to tactics often used by people during a divorce. “But I didn’t, and neither did he,” Moore proudly stated.However, Moore did admit that the separation was challenging at first. Still, she and Willis managed to take what they once shared, which created their family and turn it into “something new” that provided their daughters with a nurturing environment with caring parents. Their connection intensified more than ever before.
Moore and Willis had a whirlwind romance after crossing paths at the “Stakeout” Los Angeles movie premiere – which starred her then-fiance, Emilio Esteves.
The brunette, previously married to singer Freddy Moore from 1981 to 1985, began dating Willis shortly after they parted ways. Moore and the sought-after action star tied the knot four months into their relationship in Las Vegas on November 21, 1987. It was after learning they were going to become first-time parents.
Moore recalled they were walking inside the casino when Willis mentioned marriage. The pair had been “joking” at the idea before arriving at the casino, but when he suggested it again upon arrival, she could tell that he was adamant about it this time.
