Rumer, 26, took home the mirror ball trophy with partner Val Chmerkovskiy while her famous parents, Moore, 52, and Bruce, 60, sat in the audience. However, the source said that the new winner's parents "were required to be there."

"When Rumer signed on, it was a stipulation in the contract that Demi and Bruce participate in the show and publicity events because the producers wanted them there to bring in viewers, which they did," says the source.

"Not taking away from the fact that Rumer was really, really good," the source said, "but Demi has said that she was part of the reason that Rumer won. But she will never tell her daughter that."

"She is very proud of Rumer and she's said that this whole thing has helped her get over all the drama in her own life too."

In the end, everyone wins!
