Robert De Niro Shares Terrible News

In 1997, Robert De Niro married Grace Hightower. Despite their separation in 1999, the pair eventually rekindled their relationship and renewed their wedding vows in 2004. However, the couple’s tumultuous love affair continued when they filed for divorce in 2018. De Niro has stated that his bank accounts are running dry as Hightower continues to spend his money like it’s limitless, forcing him to take on any role available to pay the bills.

A judge has recently ruled that Hightower should receive $1 million a year from De Niro. Furthermore, the couple must split any proceeds made from selling their shared $20 million house. This divorce battle started years ago after Hightower officially filed for divorce in December 2018.

De Niro and Hightower battled it out over their nine-year-old kid’s custody in the beginning. However, their conflict has evolved to include money and property, with each side attempting to finalize their divorce and split permanently.

Hightower, on the other hand, maybe devouring cash at a rate that De Niro, a high-paid star, can’t match. Hightower spends approximately $215,000 every month on credit cards as well as an additional $160,000 each month in cash according to court papers.

De Niro’s attorney, Caroline Krauss, stated that the actor is rapidly running out of money because his ex-wife spends it quicker than he earns it. The outbreak of coronavirus has made it more difficult for De Niro to gain acting roles as Hollywood productions have shut down due to the pandemic.

However, despite all of this, De Niro still managed to rake in $5 million for his starring role in Martin Scorsese’s latest gangster film, The Irishman. In addition, he qualified for a federal relief program for coronavirus which gave him “tens of millions of dollars”.

Hightower’s attorneys claim De Niro is worth $500 million while the website Celebrity Net Worth agrees. However, Caroline Krauss argues that De Niro’s estranged wife’s spendy habits have significantly depleted the actor’s savings.
