Back in the 1980s, Demi Moore and Emilio Estevez were engaged to be married. To the public, they seemed like the perfect pair. Both Estevez and Moore were members of The Brat Pack, with flourishing careers. At the time, their love seemed unbreakable.

But sadly, Moore had to break off their engagement once she learned about Estevez’s alleged infidelity. And in a desperate attempt to win Moore back, he showed up at her door with a “tattoo of a broken heart.”

Moore says that Estevez and his family were a “good influence” on her. They were sober, and their family unit had a structure to it that she always craved. (The Ghost actor reveals in her book how chaotic her home life was.) 

And after only six months of dating, the two got engaged. Moore writes, “He was very sweet, very attentive, and looking back, I think a major factor in how quickly we moved was that I was craving a family. He had a close relationship with his.”

After learning that Estevez had gotten an “ex” girlfriend pregnant, Moore found it more and more difficult to trust her fiance. Her friend had told her that she spotted the actor out with another woman, which was the tipping point for Moore. 

And after attending a therapy session, her therapist warned her against marrying Estevez.
