Star: Rumer, Scout & Tallulah Willis are going off the rails like Demi Moore

Rumer Willis

This week’s cover of Star is all about the Willis sisters, Rumer, Scout, and Tallulah. The gist of the story is that they’re all behaving like Demi Moore by binge drinking and showing off their bodies. Their loved ones (besides Demi) are all worried sick about their out-of-control behavior. Demi is vaguely aware that something is amiss, but “she’s more of a friend than a mom.” This story probably contains some true information, but it seems like a slam piece that was sparked by Scout’s recent shirtless jaunt through NYC. I have more to say on that later, but here are some highlights from the Star piece:

* An insider says of Rumer, Scout, and Tallulah: “They are being destroyed by fame and fortune. They were given anything they wanted growing up, and now they still have the mind-set of spoiled kids.

* Things have gone downhill since the girls lost Saint Ashton Kutcher from their lives. Now that he’s impregnanted Mila Kunis and is “starting a family of his own,” the Willis sisters are “acting out because they’re desperate for attention.

* Rumer is mimicking her mother. They’re both part of the same L.A. party circuit. She stays out all hours and doesn’t come home until the sun comes up. She binge drinks and hooks up with “random men.” She also veers between drinking “nothing but green juices and coffee” and says when “she’ll suddenly binge on fast food because she’s so hungry.” During and after live shows with her budding band, she’ll refuse to socialize with fans.

* Scout is begging for attention and throwing away her college education (from Brown university). She’s not interested in finding a job and would rather walk topless through the streets of NYC for the #FreeTheNipple campaign. Scout is very upset that Bruce Willis has two new baby daughters and doesn’t have time for his older daughters.

* Tallulah is only 20 years old but has been partying her booty off since age 17. Tallulah “has no regard for anyone or anything and doesn’t know right from wrong because she wasn’t given boundaries.” She’s a regular Coachella attendee and may or may not have some nude photos floating around on someone’s hard drive.

[From Star, print edition, June 30, 2014]

I don’t know much about Tallulah. There were stories about her (along with Scout and Rumer) getting fed up with Demi’s desperate behavior after the Ashton divorce. Tallulah seems like a little hipster chick who spends her time at music festivals. She’s not in college and is probably living off her trust fund. All three sisters have trust funds, but Rumer was rumored (ha!) to have invested hers in a night club.

Scout seems most likely find trouble. She had a legal scandal a few years ago where she was arrested for underage drinking and using a fake ID. She graduated from college, but this whole #FreeTheNipple business is a mess. I guess Scout is upset that Instagram doesn’t let women (including Rihanna) post photos of their bare breasts. Scout sees this as a great injustice worth fighting against.

Here’s how I see the nip issue: Instagram is a private company that can run their free service any way they like. A lot of websites (including this one) try to maintain a SFW atmosphere. If Scout feels so strongly about the nip, maybe she should use her trust fund to set up a social media service for nip photos. She won’t do that. She’d rather soak up the attention by walking the red carpet in completely sheer tops like she did at last month’s Nylon party. See? This is all about attention for Scout.

    Poor pitiful girls.

  2. PunkyMomma says:

    This is sad. Neither parent sets a good example for these girls. Look at the message Demi sent with the total body remake and really young husband. Geezer Bruce still having babies to get that son – what message does that send? No wonder the Willis girls are all over the place.

    • kri says:

      It is a freaking TRAGEDY when Ashton Kutcher was your “good” influence. Of course, some of these things may not be true, and maybe they will grow out of it. And maybe a trust fund will magically appear in my account tomorrow. Now I must be off to fight for the rights of The Nipple.

    • Lilalis says:

      Bruce trying to get that son? Um, maybe he and his wife just wanted to have kids together? I don’t see anything wrong with that.

      • PunkyMomma says:

        He has stated recently that he would like a son. No doubt he loves his children, but that’s still gotta sting.

    • andrea says:

      I think gender selection would have been an option for him, if he really wanted a son so much that he had another baby just for that. No?

  3. eliza says:

    Scout looks like she could be Miyam Bialik’s (sp?) daughter.

    I don’t doubt those girls, although now young adults, might be a bit lost. Mom is a loon, dad is happy and busy with a new family, and in spite of how everyone loves to hate Kutcher, these girls were close to him and he was somewhat more sensible than their mother as far as parenting went, so I am sure they miss that dynamic and are having a difficult time navigating the waters of being celebrity spawn with little or no direction from the adults in their lives who they are/were close to.

  4. Mata says:

    As far back as I can remember, all three of them have been talentless, entitled jack holes, so I really don’t care about them. I don’t believe for a second that they’re feeling lost without Ashton, though. It’s not like they were little kids and he raised them. He wasn’t much older than Rumer.

  5. Luca26 says:

    Ugh why did Star have to give them a tabloid cover? They must be so happy with the attention.

    • Kiddo says:

      Reality show? Gawd, I hope not.

      • Snazzy says:

        OMG now that you’ve said it, I could totally see that happening!!

      • Size Does Matter says:

        Actually I think that’s a great idea, if the focus could be on them trying to figure out what to do with their lives and them finding some purpose. I don’t think they’re that different from normal young 20-somethings, except they have famous parents and trust funds. If they were THAT BAD there would be more specifics and arrest records, right?

      • Alexa says:

        I’d much rather “keep up with” the Willises than “keep up with” the Kardashians.

      • Kiddo says:

        @Alexa, I’d rather see all of them fading in my rear-view mirror, until not at all.

  6. Freebunny says:

    Those poor girls pick the wrong genes in the pool, that can’t help.

    • PoliteTia says:

      @Freebunny. I concur. The genes of Willis and Moore did not NOT produce stellar looks.
      But, I must add this, Rumer’s body is SLAMMING! Wow! I am so jealous.

      • rlh says:

        I saw Rumer in person in NYC and was ASTOUNDED at her body; it almost left me speechless. Incredible does not even begin to describe it. Believe me, when you see her in person, even though she does not have the best face (but not the worst face either) it all comes together; the body makes her whole look. It is just too bad she does not photograph as good as she actually looks.

  7. Talie says:

    Perez Hilton has been writing about Talulah’s antics for YEARS — like far back when she was maybe 14. He used to get in trouble with Demi and Ashton a lot.

  8. starrywonder says:

    The nip thing is ridiculous. I don’t need to see your nipples on freaking Instagram Rhianna or any other celebrity.

    • Lex says:

      It raises good points though. Men could easily post shirtless pocs online with no drama. Its blatant sexism

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I agree it is absurd. Just make your own website and post your pics of your boobs if you want. There is PLENTLY of nudity on the internet. You can do it if you want, no one is holding you back!

      The idea that a private company not wanting to publish EVERYTHING you want to share is some kind of injustice is just….well it is an insult to people fighting REAL injustice in the world. The fact that the nip issue is what she chose to champion makes her seem quite shallow.

      • Harper says:

        I think at least part of the Instagram beef comes from the fact that highly sexualized images objectifying women are allowed, provided the nipple is covered, but a more wholesome, natural shot of a breast (Scout Willis specifically refers to photos of breastfeeding mothers or breast cancer survivors) is not allowed. I agree that it’s a ridiculous thing to campaign about, but I do think it’s worth pointing out that double standard.

  9. Tig says:

    I agree that they are a bit lost- if not more so. I’m sure it smarts to see their Dad being the parent to Fam #2 that he wasn’t to them. I hope one of them doesn’t end up like Michael Douglas’ son.

    • Pumpkin Pie says:

      Bruce Willis wasn’t a father to them? I thought he was an ok dad

      • Tig says:

        Memory a bit foggy, but when they split and Demi first got up with Ashton, it was a love fest, vacations together, etc. Then it was like Bruce slowly faded from the situation. At one point, I think Bruce and Demi practically owned the town in Idaho(?) where they had moved to. If he stayed hands on, it was super under the radar.

      • Pumpkin Pie says:

        Thanks Tig. Now that you say that, I remember reading something about Bruce and Demi owing a lot of property in that town. And I think that probably Bruce chose to stay under the radar to keep things private.

    • holly hobby says:

      I think the girls were ok when they were being brought up in Idaho. Somewhere along the way, the family relocated the Hollywood and the folks got divorced. That’s when the slow descent went down. I really think they should have kept the girls in Idaho. They would have made something of their lives away from Hollywood. With their looks, they definitely have no business in the entertainment industry (cough cough Rumer).

      • mayamae says:

        It really is a shame. Demi made a big deal about moving to Idaho. She liked to spin the story of her sacrificing her brilliant career to nurture her children. The truth was she went from highest paid actress to someone no one wanted to hire.

        So she did spend some time in Idaho – which was probably good for her kids. But she proved concern for her children had nothing to do with it, when she brought them back to Hollywood at the most vulnerable of ages.

        I’ve felt sorry for her daughters for years. I remember reading about the huge entourages she would drag around with her. Who wasn’t part of the entourage – her children. Who was part of her entourage – several little dogs and an entire doll collection. Just very odd.

        I don’t want to leave Bruce off the hook. I just don’t know much about his parenting.

  10. Becki says:

    These girls, yikes!!! I get that Demi is a mess in her own right & is not parenting them, but what about Bruce?? A dad’s influence can go a long way in a girl’s life! I wonder if they’re more acting out for his attention than Ashton’s.

  11. Bej says:

    ‘More of a friend than a mom’, one of the saddest statements ever made in terms of parenting.

  12. The Original Mia says:

    I stopped paying attention to this article when they sainted Ashton Kutcher. Really, Star? The girls seem to adore Bruce and have a good relationship with Emma. Their relationship with Demi is going to be strained, like most mother and daughters, but especially with Demi’s breakdown.

    Are they off the rails? Define off the rails in terms of Beiber and Lohan. If you can’t, then they are H’wood kids with too much money and no talent.

  13. Greyson says:

    It’s unfortunate. Clearly Demi’s divorce and Bruce starting a second family has left these girls adrift.

    Also unfortunate, these girls have Demi’s beautiful features but they all have Bruce’s strong jaw >x

      (Jaws theme song) duunnn dunnn… duuuunnnn duun… duuunnnnnnnn dun dun dun dun dun dun dun dun dun dun dunnnnnnnnnnn dunnnn

    Poor little rich girls. My heard rends.

  15. FreeSpiritedGirl says:

    *gasp* look at the right side of the magazine cover. ‘Rob & Katy MADE OUT ALL NIGHT’!!!!! *faints* Noooooo, Roooooooob!

  16. decorative item says:

    The only problem these girls have is that they have no purpose in life. They need to go to a nice technical institution and learn a trade. You laugh, but I can see Rumer as a plumber.

    • Snazzy says:

      Sadly the only technical trade I see happening here is making a sex tape …

    • Renee says:

      This comment is resplendent with all kinds of f*ckery…I LOVE IT!!!
      Just imagining this makes me giggle.

    • mayamae says:

      I actually can see Tallulah as a plumber. I thought Scout graduated from college. Did she not get a degree she could actually use?

      These girls do make the Hilton sisters look hard working, disciplined, and driven.

    • HarleyB says:

      Roto-Rumer…has a nice ring to it.

  17. Schnee says:

    I actually like all three of them.

    They are doing normal LA party things and shouldn’t be held to a higher standard just because their parents were once famous.

    I wish them the best!

    • eliza says:

      Lol. I am pretty sure Bruce Willis is still famous as he is a consistently working actor.

  18. Yup says:

    I think Scout is awesome! More power to you! Who really cares? They are probably having a great time enjoying their lives. Why look down on them? They didn’t do anything to you.

  19. Sarah says:

    I never ceases to amaze me that the gene pool of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis could combine to produce these girls. They have always been unattractive, but apparently they are also unattractive on the inside as well. Ugh…

    • NYC_girl says:

      But I always liked Bruce – I’m old enough to remember David Addison!!

    • Amulla says:

      I guess if I say they are unattractive, then I’m being catty. But I don’t think they were blessed with great looks. Which is a shame, because they might have gotten more acting roles by now. especially with having parents in show biz. I don’t even think a strip club would hire women with faces like that.

  20. RobN says:

    I thought they’d been raised in Montana/Wyoming (?) specifically to keep them out of the whole Hollywood party scene? It’s really too bad that Demi dragged them back with her when she decided to pair up with Ashton.

    It’s also too bad they seem to have no direction whatsoever and enough money to indulge that. Nothing straightens you out faster than having to make rent somewhere.

  21. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    Compared to Leyla Mafi they got a pretty good life – perhaps they should make a visit to Iran.

  22. littlebobee says:

    During the parties at Coachella this year, Tallulah and Scout spent a considerable amount of time hoovering illicit things up their noses with someone that I know personally. UM..yeah, no good.

    • holly hobby says:

      They should stop it with the sniffing because they won’t have a nose left given how measly their noses are. Yes, I’ve heard of people burning a hole in their nose for doing cocaine.

  23. Onyx XV says:

    Color me surprised!

    On another note, I’m not sure Star got their cover photo correct. Is that Tallulah in the middle or just another photo of Rumer? Always thought Tallulah had a slightly different look. Google image her, and she looks a bit different than Rumer and Scout. Oh well, it really doesn’t matter, anyway!

  24. ataylor says:

    They were fine when they lived in Hailey, Idaho. I met Rumor once in L.A. when she was 15-16? She seemed like a nice, polite, wholesome girl. Keep in mind her hair was still curly and this was before the sexpot makeover. Pre-Ashton. Poor girls.

  25. Bridget says:

    Those girls have been on the party circuit for years, including the Kutcher years, much earlier than Demi losing it. One might ask if they were ever really ‘on the rails’ to begin with.

  26. pru says:

    Wasn’t Demi very into Kabbalah for a while? If these girls were raised with some religious influence, I would have hoped they would have more purpose in their lives.

    • Bridget says:

      Except the offshoot of K abbalah that Demi was following wasn’t your traditional study of the Jewish Mysticism so much as something way more similar to a cult. There were a lot of nasty rumblings about that sect and some financial shenanigans.

      • pru says:

        Oh! I didn’t know there was a shady offshoot of Kabbalah. Though, not surprising there are some trying to capitalize on Hollywood’s willingness to jump on every popular religious/spiritual bandwagon.

  27. SJI says:

    Man, none of them lucked out in the face department.

  28. Jenny12 says:

    It would be great if they wanted an education, real career, etc. They aren’t conventionally pretty, but could be character actresses with their connections. Anything other than permanent party girls.

  29. Blackwood says:

    I love how this trashy magazine equates liking casual and kinky sex with a sign of some sort of mental illness or as a call for help/attention! *eyeroll* . Stay classy, Star!

  30. JH says:

    Dang- the Bruce gene is strong in these girls. I can hardly recognize any Demi features.

  31. jwoolman says:

    Didn’t the youngest one live with her dad in recent years?

    I had the impression that Rumer was stuck trying to deal with mom’s craziness while the middle daughter was off at college, and that either both of the younger ones or at least #3 didn’t want to have anything to do with crazy mom. Never heard anything sour about their relationship with their dad or with Ashton- they obviously were still friendly with Ashton after the separation. I always suspected he was an important buffer between them and their mom, so it was quite a loss for them. I think they know the real story and don’t blame Ashton- which means we don’t know the real story and should reserve judgment. Demi must be hell to live with. She is so unstable.
