Back in 1987, Bruce released an album titled 'The Return of Bruno,' which included collaborations with artists including The Temptations and The Pointer Sisters.

His relatives, including his wife Emma, ex-wife Demi Moore, 59, and five daughters Rumer, 34, Scout, 31, Tallulah, 28, Mabel Ray, 10, and Evelyn, eight, issued a joint statement via Instagram on March 30 announcing his aphasia diagnosis. The statement read, "The veteran actor has been experiencing some health issues and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive abilities. As a result of this and with much consideration Bruce is stepping away from the career that has meant so much to him. This is a challenging time for our family and we are so appreciative of your continued love, compassion, and support." They continued: "We are moving through this as a strong family unit, and wanted to bring his fans in because we know how much he means to you, as you do to him. As Bruce always says, 'Live it up' and together we plan to do just that."
