DEMI MOORE is to marry her martial arts boyfriend OLIVER WHITCOMB - with ex-husband BRUCE WILLIS' blessing. The GHOST (1990) actress, who now shuns the Hollywood lifestyle, met Oliver when she enrolled her three young daughters at his karate class.
A close friend of Demi says, "Ollie may be nobody compared to Bruce, but he's a superstar in Demi's eyes. He's put a smile back on her face and in her heart. With Bruce, it was all ups and downs." She said, "One day he adored me, the next it was like I didn't exist. '"
Demi split from the DIE HARD (1988) star three years ago (99) after 11 years of marriage. And the actress, who has been given a three-carat diamond ring by her new lover, has already been spotted trying on wedding veils at shops in Las Vegas, America.
One of Willis' pals says, "Bruce isn't the least bit jealous. In fact, he's given them his blessing. He's already told Ollie, When the invitations go out, make sure my name's at the top of the list'. " (KMW/WNTEX&WNTRE/KW)
