Is Bruce Willis really ticked off at Apple?

The U.K.'s Daily Mail reported that the 57-year-old tough guy is mulling legal action against the tech giant because he's unhappy that the terms and conditions of Apple's iTunes Store prevent him from bequeathing his extensive digital library to his children.

That's because, according to experts, the files purchased are really licenses giving users the right to download and listen to them, not actually own them.

The Die Hard star is said to have thousands of hours of music, including some of his own from his own late '80s pop-blues album The Return of Bruno that he hoped to pass down to Rumer, Scout and Tallulah.

But if you ask Willis' model wife, the whole story is just a bunch of pulp fiction.

When a Netizen took to Twitter and suggested to Emma Hemming-Willis that he could just give his kids his login and password to his iTunes account, she tweeted back, "It's not a true story."

While Bruce may not be going to war with Apple, the gossip at least will get folks paying attention to iTunes' complicated terms and conditions, which South Park famously lampooned a couple of seasons ago.
