“To Bruce’s amazing supporters, as a family, we wanted to share that our beloved Bruce has been experiencing some health issues and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive abilities,” adding: “As a result of this and with much consideration Bruce is stepping away from the career that has meant so much to him.”
Willis, from his majestic and magnificent acting career, was able to invest in real estate and from that aquire a beachfront home on Parrot Cay in the Turks and Caicos. Back in 2019, this property would sell for an impressive 29 million dollars. It is now on the market once again for an even more staggering 37.5 million dollars. The land was purchased by the Die Hard actor in the year 2000 and he would start to build three homes over four years.

As Bruce always says, ‘Live it up and together we plan to do just that.”
