The family raised eyebrows when they began sharing photos of themselves hunkered down together in recent weeks. The reaction to the images wasn’t necessarily because Bruce and Demi are on bad terms, in fact, the exes are as cordial as a divorced pair can be. But some found it rather odd considering Bruce’s wife Emma Heming is social distancing in Los Angeles with their two daughters.
However, Scout is now setting the record straight on the Dopey podcast. According to Us Weekly, the 28-year-old revealed that her stepmom and half-sisters were simply unable to make the journey from Los Angeles to Sun Valley, Idaho. “My stepmom was going to come up here too with my little sisters,” she explained. “[But] my younger sister… [who has] never gotten a talk about not f–cking with hypodermic needles… she found [needles at a park and] she actually tried to poke her shoe with it and poked her foot.”
Of course, this called for a trip to the doctor, where they took all the necessary tests. So Scout said that Emma chose to stay back while they were “waiting to get the results,” and Bruce traveled to their family home in Sun Valley, Idaho “early.”
This is where their plans to social distance together hit a snag though. As the coronavirus continued to spread, Scout said, “Travel got crazy and my stepmom stayed in L.A. with my little sisters.”
Even though travel restrictions are keeping them apart physically, Emma is staying in touch with her hubby and extended family over social media. On Instagram she comments on Tallulah Willis and Demi’s posts, including a group shot in which all of the family is wearing matching green PJ’s. She affectionately wrote, “Not many can pull that color off. Lookin’ good squad!”
