Robert De Niro Announces Horrible News…

Robert De Niro wed Grace Hightower in 1997. Despite parting ways in 1999, the couple eventually got back together and renewed their wedding vow in 2004. However, when they sought a divorce in 2018, the couple’s turbulent love affair went on. According to De Niro, his bank accounts are empty as a result of Hightower’s continued extravagant spending, which forces him to accept any possible assignment in order to pay the bills.

Hightower should receive $1 million annually from De Niro, a judge just concluded. The couple must also equally divide the proceeds from the sale of their $20 million joint home. Hightower formally filed for divorce in December 2018, which sparked the beginning of this divorce battle years later.

The initial custody dispute included De Niro and Hightower’s nine-year-old child. However, as each side tries to complete their divorce and completely separate, their disagreement has grown to include money and property.

Hightower, on the other hand, might be gobbling up money at a rate that even a high-paid celebrity like De Niro can’t equal. According to court documents, Hightower spends about $215,000 each month on credit cards and an extra $160,000 each month in cash.

Caroline Krauss, De Niro’s lawyer, claimed that the star is quickly running out of money because his ex-wife consumes it more quickly than he does. De Niro has found it more challenging to land acting assignments as a result of the coronavirus outbreak because Hollywood projects have stopped owing to the pandemic.

Nevertheless, De Niro still made $5 million for his leading role in Martin Scorsese’s most recent gangster movie, The Irishman, despite all of this. Additionally, he was eligible for a government coronavirus relief program, which awarded him “tens of millions of dollars”.

De Niro’s lawyers assert that he is worth $500 million, and Celebrity Net Worth concurs. Caroline Krauss counters that De Niro’s ex-extravagant wife’s spending has severely reduced the actor’s savings.

The age of Mr. De Niro is 77. And although he loves his work, he shouldn’t be compelled to work at such a rapid rate, according to Krauss. When will that be over? When will he have the chance to decide whether or not to accept any project that comes his way? Or refuse to put in 12-hour days and six-day weeks only to quench Ms. Hightower’s hunger for Stella McCartney?

De Niro has been commuting back and forth between his residence in Tribeca, Manhattan, a property in New Paltz, and another flat he lets out in Manhattan while the coronavirus pandemic has been ongoing. De Niro will need to find his ex-wife a new home if their house finally sells.

The majority of De Niro’s income from his upcoming two films will be subject to taxation.

“These costs are out of the norm for 99.99999% of the world. These are unusual in a way that is almost incomprehensible, declared Justice Matthew Cooper. “I wish to divorce these parties. I want Ms. Hightower and Mr. De Niro to go their separate ways. They will both emerge from this richer than the majority of people who inhabit this planet. There is no doubt in my mind.
