  • But Hightower also claims De Niro spends freely and charters $50,000 jets for weekends in Florida and $1 million on his children in 2019 and 2020
Robert De Niro has claimed that his bitter divorce with Grace Hightower has wrung him dry and he is fast running out of cash.

A judge has ruled that his ex-wife should receive $1 million annually and that the couple will split the proceeds after selling their $20 million home.

The couple have been locked in a divorce battle since December 2018.

Initially the pair fought over custody of their nine-year-old child but now the arguments are over money and property.

Hightower's average monthly spend was $215,000 a month on credit cards and $160,000 in cash. De Niro's attorney, Caroline Krauss, claims the financial strain means the actor is running out of money.

She said the coronavirus pandemic led to a drying up of work projects for the Hollywood star.

Months earlier, De Niro earned $5 million for acting in Martin Scorsese's hit gangster flick, The Irishman. He also received 'tens of millions of dollars' through a federal coronavirus relief program.

Hightower claims that De Niro is worth $500 million, but his attorney Caroline Krauss says that his estranged wife's extravagant lifestyle is making things worse.

'Mr. De Niro is 77 years old. And while he loves his craft, he should not be forced to work at this prodigious pace because he has to,' Krauss said.

'When does that stop? When does he get the opportunity to not maybe take every project that comes along? Or not work six-day weeks, 12-hour days, simply to keep up with Ms. Hightower's thirst for Stella McCartney?'

De Niro has been spending his time between his home in Tribeca, an estate in New Paltz and an apartment he is renting in Manhattan.

When the martial home is finally sold off, he will have to buy Hightower a new home.

The money earned from De Niro's next two films are also going towards paying De Niro's $18.25 million income tax bill reports the New York Daily News.

'There's nothing ordinary about these expenses for 99.99999% of the world. These are extraordinary to an almost unimaginable degree,' Justice Matthew Cooper said at Manhattan Supreme Court ruled.

'I want to get these parties divorced. I want to get Mr. De Niro and Ms. Hightower to go their separate ways. They're both going to come out of this richer than most human beings who walk this earth. There's no question about it.'

De Niro is also accused of spending freely including chartering $50,000 jets for weekends in Florida and $1 million on his children in 2019 and 2020

Kevin McDonough, Hightower's attorney, dismissed De Niro's claims of poverty noting he spent $450,000 on a summer rental in Amagansett in 2019, $150,000 on a Thanksgiving vacation and $1 million on his adult children in 2019 and 2020.

'When Mr. De Niro goes to brunch on Sunday in Connecticut, he charters a helicopter and flies up there. When he flies down to see a friend in Florida or wherever else, it's a private jet. Even if you flew first class at $1,500, that's not good enough for Mr. De Niro — he spends $50,000 for a private jet for the weekend.'

De Niro's lawyer countered that his ex 'dramatically' increased her spending in the final years of the marriage.

'She spent $1.2 million at high-end boutiques: Dolce and Gabbana, Stella McCartney, the Madison Etro store. Manolo Blahnik. The list goes on and on,' Krauss said.

The purchases include $700,000 and a further $1.2 million on a diamond.

'He told her it was ridiculously over the top and she absolutely did not have permission to spend that kind of money,' Krauss said.

Read up on this and I'm surprised she is a Trumpster.

In 2018 she had a net worth of $16M through her business.

But Hightower also claims De Niro spends freely and charters $50,000 jets for weekends in Florida and $1 million on his children in 2019 and 2020

It's his money tho. What he spends on his kids shouldn't be any of her business. I don't understand why the other party who is not working expect to live on the same level as the one who is working after a divorce. He is saving for his retirement as well. At his age anything can happen.

After the house is sold and they split the money he will still buy her a home. That money will be is hers too.

The money earned from De Niro's next two films are also going towards paying De Niro's $18.25 million income tax bill.

If he already had that money he would not do movies he didn't want to do. Most likely is his money tied up in property and investments.

Who cares about wig, homegirl is up running on those luxury shops, draining her cheater husband bank account.


Between her and wendi deng, I can’t choose between who is the bigger icon

Clearly you do to quote me.

Appearance is an extension of self. If she doesn't give a damn and is reckless in her appearance, it lends itself to her reckless spending imo.

Where is the proof she is a Trump supporter? I keep hearing that and Trump supporters hoping she bleeds him dry.

Deniro is allegedly about to be a billionaire though, she knows that he has the money.

Neither of them seem like they were a good fit for marriage but I'll always support a woman getting the money that she can! Heard he has quite a lot of demons from childhood and has never really been able to get close to anybody, so maybe it was doomed from the start.

Knew she would be recklessly spending and stretch out the divorce. Shes spending that much a month to spite him. Hes not broke, but I understand why he lowered her spending money as they're in the midst of a divorce and he wasn't working as much last year during the start of the pandemic and his all his hotels and restaurants are still closed down until further notice.

Grace is known to be a nasty and mean woman. Fonts on here said they seen her in public and that shes nasty to any young bw around for fear that her husband would be attracted to them. Shes been known to harass the her former house staff they used to employ and one even stole jewelry from her due to her being abusive to them, etc.

De Niro should've married the bw photographer he was engaged to in the 90s instead of grace. Smh He learned the hard way. Grace could never get her wig or outfit right with all that money. I have no clue what she's blowing the money on.

He should have married Toukie. She was sweet. It was rumored before he married Grace, that he was dating and "engaged" to this chick. Her name is Anne Marie Fox and was his photographer when he was filming Frankenstein. She has a legit career as a professional onset film photographer and a degree from Columbia U. She also posed for playboy back in the 80s, lol.
