Tallulah Willis has reached out to get help, but it looks like it may not have been her idea.

Reports claim Tallulah Willis has secretly entered rehab >>

According to a family friend, Willis' parents, Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, insisted that Tallulah seek help just before she entered rehab.

"Tallulah was pretty much given an ultimatum," the source told People. "Her parents were about to take away everything from her."

The family friend added that the 20-year-old was affected by her parent's divorce back in 2000. Things got even worse with her mom's second divorce, which was followed by Moore's hospitalization and stint in rehab.

"When Demi was hospitalized, Tallulah didn't show up to school for days because she was too embarrassed," a high school classmate said. "She was very open about Demi's issues and would sort of imply, 'Of course I have issues too, look at my mom.'"

Tallulah Willis is now working as a fashion blogger and growing into her own person. But she is still dealing with insecurities of her childhood — recently revealing she was diagnosed with body dysmorphia.

Even though Willis' parents both sought help for their daughter, it appears that they have two different approaches to what she needs.

"If Bruce suspected that Tallulah had any kind of substance abuse problem, he would have demanded for her to get help," the source added. "Demi's take is that Tallulah is still very young and trying to find herself."
