Bruce Willis was a box office draw in the eighties and nineties. Willis starred in iconic movies such as “Pulp Fiction” and the smash hit “Die Hard” franchise. Unfortunately, he had to step away away from acting due to a brain disorder.
His family recently announced that the legendary actor is suffering from aphasia. The frightening medical condition affects a person’s ability to communicate in both written and verbal language.
According to Page Six, Willis already knew that his health would affect him down the road and had been preparing for it for a number of years. The actor sold off $65 million worth of luxury property in New York and other states.
“Bruce has been preparing for this moment for a long time. He knew there would be a time, as his health declined, when his earning power wouldn’t be as great as it once was.
“Plus he knew that he wouldn’t eventually need multiple estates and apartments to travel between, and that he would instead need to live in a safe environment surrounded by his family.”
“Looking at how he has sold off most of his properties in recent years, it is clear that he has been preparing to downsize and simplify his life for a number of years,” said the anonymous source close to Willis.
The properties comprised a 9,000-square-foot home in Westchester, a 6,000-square-foot Central Park West duplex, a mountain house in Sun Valley, Idaho, and a luxury compound in Turks and Caicos.
