    I've always heard she is a huge bitch to everyone, so I feel not a bit of sympathy for her.

    Robert De Niro’s ‘Spendthrift’ Spouse Was ‘Blindsided’ By Their Split After 20 Years

    Star tells pals Grace Hightower has 'been spending like crazy.'

    Robert De Niro‘s wife was shocked by their breakup, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.


    The Raging Bull star, 75, and Grace Hightower, 62, had been together for twenty years.


    A source told Page Six just days ago, “They are not living together at this time. De Niro and Grace are breaking up.”


    Now, an insider has told Radar that the split was De Niro’s idea, saying, “She was blindsided. As of a few weeks ago, everything seemed fine.”



    But the famed actor attended the Friars event honoring Billy Crystal without her and they haven’t been seen out at a big event together in months.


    “He’s telling people she’s been spending like crazy,” the Radar source said.


    The two have also been affected by the illness of their son Elliot, 20, the source said.


    “He’s seriously disabled by autism. It’s a big stress on Robert and Grace,” the insider told Radar.


    The two haven’t lived in one place together since their home suffered a fire on Central Park West in New York in 2012, according to the spy.


    “They’ve been in a bunch of places,” the source explained.


    Another Radar insider also explained that Hightower’s spendthrift ways have impacted her marriage to the Casino star: “Grace doesn’t know the concept of cutting corners or cutting back.


    “She’s always spent Bobby’s money like it was nothing. Grace is a socialite. She loves the good things in life, fine dining, fashion and travel. She considers herself a philanthropist, but it’s Bobby’s money she using, and not always wisely.”


    De Niro and his wife have had a troubled marriage for years, as Radar reported, but now it looks like it might finally be over.

    Well, to be honest, if Bobby was my husband, I'd be spending his money too.

    Robert De Niro breaks silence on split from wife Grace Hightower

    Robert De Niro has publicly confirmed his spilt from his wife of more than two decades, Grace Hightower, after Page Six exclusively reported that the couple was living separately.

    Said De Niro in a statement on Tuesday: “Grace and I have two beautiful children together. We are entering a period of transition in our relationship which is a difficult but constructive process.”

    The “Raging Bull” icon added, “I honor Grace as a wonderful mother and ask for privacy and respect from all as we proceed to develop our roles as partners in parenting.”

    Sources previously pointed out to Page Six that De Niro had been attending events solo since the summer and buzz spread that the couple was breaking up. Insiders close to the couple then confirmed that De Niro and Hightower were living apart.

    They married in 1997 after about a decade of dating, and have two kids together. They first met when Hightower worked at starry eatery Mr. Chow in London.

    Robert De Niro kicks daddy duty up a notch amid custody battle with Grace Hightower

    As Robert De Niro and ex Grace Hightower battle for the custody of their daughter, the “Raging Bull” star has been a superdad at events all over town with the little girl.

    First, the actor took his daughter Helen, 7, to a party with Uma Thurman’s daughter Luna, 6, on Friday night.

    De Niro — who split from Hightower in November, as Page Six first reported, and has since been in court to fight her for custody of Helen — dropped off his youngest at the interactive museum Trolls the Experience for a hang with Luna.

    “The two girls, who held hands while getting made up with Trolls hair and face painting, ended the day with pizza.”

    He was spotted again this week with Helen at a Playground Partners event in Central Park’s Heckscher Playground.

    De Niro has called reporters covering the court battle “scumbags.”

    Well, I almost think I'd like De Niro to call me a scumbag. That's gotta give you a little street cred.

    Selfish old people renting wombs to have children they probably won't see to adulthood. So wrong.

    Robert De Niro’s estranged wife thinks he’s worth $500M and wants half

    Robert De Niro got hit with a real summer blockbuster in court Thursday, when lawyers for his estranged wife demanded half of his “$500 million” fortune — despite a 2004 prenup that his side insists limits her to a $6 million apartment, $500,000 cash and $1 million a year in alimony.

    The “Raging Bull” star’s soon-to-be ex Grace Hightower made the big money grab — and revealed intimate details of his net worth — Thursday in Manhattan Supreme Court, where the two sat through another in a series of contentious hearings in their ongoing divorce.

    The fractured pair — who first married in 1997 and divorced in 1999 — are arguing over the wording of the prenup they signed when they remarried in 2004.

    The two are far apart on that wording.

    De Niro contends that the prenup sets strict limits on her take in a divorce.

    Hightower is solely entitled to $6.5 million in cash and property, his side contends, plus annual alimony of $1 million and half the value of a second apartment.

    But her side insists the prenup’s language additionally entitles her to half of what the “Goodfellas” star has made during the remarriage.

    The bulk of that half-billion-dollar fortune comes from his movies and his lucrative stake in the Nobu sushi chain.

    She also believes she’s entitled to an additional 50 percent of what he earned from his share in Tribeca Grill, the 88-room Greenwich Hotel and Canal Productions.

    “Mr. De Niro has made $300 million since 2004 via 35 businesses, and 38 movies,” Hightower’s lawyer, Allan Mantel, told the judge.

    “His total income is more than $500 million. He gets it all,” he said in angry disbelief, prompting Justice Matthew Cooper to interject some humor into the tense proceeding.

    “Now his income will fall, now that special counsel Robert Mueller is out of the picture on ‘Saturday Night Live,’” the judge quipped.

    De Niro’s lawyer, Caroline Krauss-Browne, is meanwhile complaining that Hightower’s side is nickel-and-diming the actor for every penny of his fortune.

    Hightower has issued six subpoenas for his financial records, Krauss-Browne complained.

    “She is seeking essentially every piece of paper of De Niro’s receipts for meals on movie sets, wardrobe, payroll records of every employee at Nobu, credit card charges. This all goes back 15 years.”

    Neither De Niro nor Hightower would comment on the divorce as they left the court, except the “Goodfellas” star did make a humorous reference to having snarled at reporters during a court appearance in April.

    “Any last words?” a reporter asked as he waited for his driver at the corner of Mulberry and Worth streets, shielding his face with a newspaper.

    When a news photographer offered a potential quote — “Yeah, ‘Go f–k yourself’?” — the actor laughed.

    “Your co-worker just said it,” he chuckled, then got into his car.

    De Niro has been a superdad of sorts in recent weeks, shepherding daughter Helen, 7, to parties and events.

    The couple’s split was first reported by Page Six in November.

    De Niro filed for divorce from Hightower a month later.
