Since the 1980s, Demi Moore had three children and high profile marriages that ended in divorce. Despite her Hollywood fame, Demi’s failed relationships ended amicably, at least in public.

The world got to know the actress as Demi Moore when her career took off. Initially born as Demi Gene Guynes in Roswell, New Mexico, she took the last name of her first husband, Freddy Moore before they got married in 1980.

After the pair tied the knot, Demi had a brief songwriting career during which she co-wrote lyrics to It’s Not A Rumour with her rock musician husband. Even though Demi still receives royalties for her efforts as a songwriter, her relationship with Freddy only lasted four years.

While filming “St. Elmo’s Fire” after her divorce from Freddy, Demi met Emilio Estevez. The couple got engaged, but with both having jam-packed working schedules their postponed wedding 1987 never happened.

Instead, Demi met Bruce Willis at a movie screening in Los Angeles, and the pair decided to get married four months later on November 1987 in Las Vegas.

Named after the British novelist Rumer Godden, Demi gave birth to their first daughter, Rumer on August 16, 1988. Scout Willis came into the world three years later on July 20, 1991, while their youngest daughter, Tallulah was born on February 3, 1994.

But a few years later while shooting “G.I. Jane,” the trouble in their relationship became apparent when Bruce never visited Demi on set.

The couple appeared together for the movie's premiere in 1997, but according to the producer they already had problems for about two years and that “they were more like comrades, supporting each other at a public event.”

Meanwhile, the couple continued to focus on their acting careers and taking care of their daughters. “They’re both good parents,” Susie Hart, an acquaintance of Demi said. “Bruce is more the disciplinarian. Demi is the more carefree type. She’s more like a big sister or girlfriend.”

Shortly before Bruce’s movie, “Armageddon” premiered in 1998, news of their separation hit the media. However, a lengthy separating followed before Bruce filed for divorce on October 18, 2000, in Haily’s Blaine County courthouse.

During that time, the couple divided their $20 million-worth joint real estate in Hailey and made sure their daughters had time to adjust to their impending split. “They wanted to make sure the kids were really grounded,” a friend told PEOPLE.

Three years after her split from Bruce, Demi met Ashton Kutcher during a casual dinner in New York in 2003. Ashton won the hearts of Demi and her daughters, who later called him MOD, short for “My Other Dad.”

The couple got married two years later in September 2005 during a Kabbalah ceremony held at their Beverly Hills home in front of 100 guests.

Their marital bliss lasted until Ashton got accused of cheating on Demi for the second time. According to reports, 22-year-old Sara Leal alleged that she had a one-night stand with Ashton on his sixth wedding anniversary with Demi in 2010. Just the previous year, 22-year-old Brittney Jones claimed that she had sex with Ashton when he went to Israel as part of what he described as a spiritual journey.

“It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my six-year marriage to Ashton,” Demi said in a statement on November 2011. “As a woman, a mother, and a wife, there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life.”

Demi’s daughters had since grown up, and all followed in their acting parent's footsteps. Rumer began acting at the tender age of five and played her mother’s onscreen daughter in the 1996 film “Striptease.”

She also played her father’s onscreen daughter in “Hostage” nine years later. Named as Miss Golden Globe 2008, Rumer also won season 20 of “Dancing with the Stars.”

Named after a character in the book, “To Kill A Mockingbird,” Scout became known for her roles in the 1995 film “The Scarlet Letter," “Bandits” in 2001, and "Moonrise Kingdom” in 2012.

The youngest of the Moore sisters, Tallulah, or Lulah as she is affectionately called, also starred in “The Scarlet Letter” and “Bandits,” but also stood out for her role in “The Whole Ten Yards” in 2004.

On May 20, 2019, Demi shared sweet words to her daughters in reply to one of Scout’s Instagram posts. “I absolutely adore you all, and I am so incredibly proud of you. You are all stunningly beautiful, and I am in awe. Your strength, generosity, and [love] are shining through with dignity! I love you!” Demi wrote.

While Demi often headlined due to her career or relationships over the years, she had gone relatively quiet after her rise to fame during the 1980s and 1990s.

After a brief appearance in the television series “Empire,” fans wondered why the actress had disappeared from the big screen.
