“It’s like the sun went down and like, a monster came," Tallulah said. "I remember there’s just the anxiety that would come up in my body when I could sense that her eyes shutting a little bit more, the way she was speaking. Or she would be a lot more affectionate with me if she wasn’t sober."
Nodding in agreeance, Rumer added that it was “jarring.”
“It was very weird, and there were moments where it would get angry,” Tallulah continued.
“I recall being very upset and kind of treating her like a child and speaking to her like a child. It was not the mum that we had grown up with.”
Demi has also publicly documented the details of her struggles with addiction in her newly released memoir Inside Out, and Rumer has previously praised her mother's candour.
“I’m so proud of her vulnerability, and I think so many women have watched her — and just as her daughter I’ve watched her — as this kind of beacon of strength and this kind of leader," Rumer said earlier this month on The Talk.
“I think what I really respect about her is, she’s never the victim in her story. She takes accountability, she takes responsibility, and, mind you, this is her perspective, her story, and she’s the first one to say that. She’s allowing herself to show everyone that you can go through some really difficult, hard things and you can still be someone who is thriving and taking accountability and just being a strong survivor without being like, ‘Oh, I survived this and this is who I am because of this story,’ which I think is amazing,” Rumer said.
