Bruce Willis’ Team Responds To Accusations Hollywood Producer Pushed Him To Keep Working Despite Aphasia Diagnosis

After Bruce Willis’ post-aphasia diagnosis retirement, stories of support and well-wishes flooded the internet. Friends, fans, and family have all sent their best to the man who’s entertained so many, and still has some upcoming movies to be released in that same spirit. However, concerns have also taken shape, as recent accusations claim Hollywood producer Randall Emmett may have known about Willis’ condition, and pushed him to work harder anyway. In light of those comments, Bruce Willis’ attorney Martin Singer responded to those claims, refuting them entirely.  

During a recent profile The Los Angeles Times ran on Emmett, Singer denied claims that Emmett, who also directed Bruce Willis in the film Midnight in the Switchgrass, was engaging in such behavior. These accusations were accompanied with claims from others on that set in particular admitting the Die Hard actor’s aphasia was well known throughout the cast and crew, before Willis’s family publicly announced it this past March. Martin Singer’s rebuttal of such claims reads as follows: 

My client continued working after his medical diagnosis because he wanted to work and was able to do so, just like many others diagnosed with aphasia who are capable of continuing to work. Because Mr. Willis appeared in those films, they could get financed. That resulted in literally thousands of people having jobs, many during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
