Wenn/Getty Demi Moore's daughters (left to right) Scout, Tallulah, Rumer
It seems rather far-fetched, but according to a celebrity gossip site, heartbroken Demi Moore has become such a pest to her three daughters that they are considering taking out a restraining order to prevent her from contacting them.
RadarOnline says Rumer, 23, Scout, 20, and Tallulah, 18, are at 'breaking point' with their mother after a series of fights about her 'incessantly' trying to contact them following the breakdown of her marriage to Ashton Kutcher, 34.
A source – described as 'close to the family' – told the website: "Rumer, Scout and Tallulah...made it clear to her weeks ago that they do not want to talk to her right now but she is still trying to contact them.
"Demi has been calling them incessantly and emailing them, leaving them tearful messages and begging them to call her and the girls are sick of it."
Apparently, the celebrity offspring understand this is a 'really drastic measure' and it is not something they are considering lightly but they just want 'some peace and quiet', according to the site.
Earlier this month, Ghost star Demi, 49, was reportedly left 'devastated' over losing contact with the trio, whom she had during her marriage to Bruce Willis, 57.
"Demi is beside herself. She hasn't spoken to Scout, Rumer or Tallulah for weeks now, they won't return any of her calls, emails or texts," the source told Radar.
"She has returned to work and is trying to hold herself together, but this is a really tough time for her."
"Demi is angry with her daughters because Ashton has remained active in the lives of all of his step-daughters, attending concerts that they've performed in and supporting them through their mother's substance abuse troubles.
"She doesn't understand how they could stay close with Ashton after he humiliated her and she's asked them to stop talking with him but they refuse," the friend said.
"Demi can't let that go and can't get over it, so she constantly attacks the girls for staying friends with Ashton. They've had it with her over that."
However, whatever the truth of their legal desires, they would be very unlikely to succeed in getting an order against their own mother.
A legal expert explained: "You can't get a restraining order against your mum when she's trying to call you.
"If that were the case, many, many more people would all be in court."
