7 Mar – Bruce Willis' wife Emma Heming recently urged everybody, especially the photographers and paparazzi not to confuse her husband by yelling at him in public.
"Just keep your space. I know this is your job, but maybe just keep your space," she said in a video shared on Instagram.
"For the video people, please don't be yelling at my husband asking him how he's doing or whatever - the woohoo-ing and the yippee ki yays ... just don't do it. Okay? Give him his space. Allow for our family or whoever's with him that day to be able to get him from point A to point B safely," she added.
Heming also stated that it is stressful enough for both caretakers and dementia sufferers alike when it comes to navigating the world, and that she decided to do the video message after seeing a video of her husband getting hounded by the paparazzi when he was out getting coffee with friends.
She also complimented those friends for protecting Willis at the time.
In the caption, Heming wrote, "To other caregivers or dementia care specialist navigating this world.... Any tips or advice on how to get your loved ones out in the world safely? Please share below."
Among the tips she received in the comments include a reminder about Sundown Syndrome, in which a dementia patient's moods can change drastically as the day gets dark.
Heming tied the knot with Willis in 2009. The two have two children together, aside from Willis' three children with ex-wife and actress Demi Moore. The model previously announced that Willis, who was originally diagnosed with aphasia, is now suffering from frontotemporal dementia (known as FTD).
