Bruce Willis’ wife, Emma Heming Willis, recently took to Instagram to ask paparazzi and videographers to keep their distance and not to yell at the actor when he’s out and about. “This one is going out to the photographers and the video people that are trying to get those exclusives of my husband out and about: Just keep your space,” she said in the clip. “I know this is your job, but maybe just keep your space.” She continued by saying, “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. OK? 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.” Willis captioned the video writing,  “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.”

The video begins with Willis recounting a recent incident that Bruce had with photographers where he was out and about with friends getting coffee in Santa Monica. The model spoke about the struggles saying how “difficult and stressful it can be to get someone out into the world and to navigate them safely.”

This comes just weeks after Willis’ family announced his speaking disorder, aphasia, has progressed into dementia. “Today there are no treatments for the disease, a reality that we hope can change in the years ahead. As Bruce’s condition advances, we hope that any media attention can be focused on shining a light on this disease that needs far more awareness and research,” they said last month in an update shared online.

Heming Willis and Willis tied the knot in 2009 and share two daughters together, Mabel and Evelyn.
