Hollywood Star Bruce Willis Diagnosed With Dementia
Bruce Willis has been given a second devastating diagnosis less than year after it emerged he had an untreatable brain disorder.

In a statement on social media, Bruce Willis' family said it was a "relief to finally have a clear diagnosis" and also expressed their "deepest gratitude for the incredible outpouring of love".

As per the family, the 67-year-old was diagnosed with aphasia - which causes difficulties with speech - last year, but this has progressed and he has been given a more specific diagnosis.

"Today there are no treatments for the disease, a reality that we hope can change in the years ahead," the statement said.

In a report, the actor Brian Cox, who starred in the film Red with Willis, was quoted as saying that the news was "very sad" and that the actor was "witty and a great performer".
