Trump-Hating Robert De Niro Could Lose Half Of $500 Million Fortune To Ex-Wife

The divorce proceedings are centered around a prenup agreement

(Big League Politics) – A Trump-hating actor who recently split with his wife could lose a huge amount of money in divorce court, according to Thursday reports.

“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,” Page Six said.

De Niro is known for his vile anti-Trump rhetoric, which he put on full display at last year’s Tony Awards. He recently called it quits for the second time with Grace Hightower, whom he remarried in 2004 after first divorcing in 1999.

Page Six said a prenup agreement is the source of hotly contested debate in the divorce proceedings.

“De Niro contends that the prenup sets strict limits on her take in a divorce,” the report said. “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.”

De Niro, aside from being an actor and producer, has amassed part of his fortune as a restauranteur. He owns a large stake in the Nobu sushi chain and the swanky Tribeca Grill in New York City.

Flashback: De Niro Bashes Trump Again In Award Speech; This Time Crowd Boos (Video)

Robert De Niro used another award show to say “f*** Trump.”

Some in the crowd booed.

De Niro was a presenter at the American Icon Awards, there to honor fellow actor Al Pacino. But as usual, he interrupted his speech to bash President Trump.

“You didn’t think you were gonna’ completely get away without a f*** Trump moment, did you?” the “Taxi Driver” actor said.

“The individual who currently purports to lead America is not worthy of any tribute,” De Niro said at the Beverly Wilshire hotel on Sunday. Some loud boos rained down upon him.

“Unless you think of his impeachment and imprisonment as a sort of tribute — now that’s how you can make America great again.”

In his lead-up to the Trump trashing, De Niro said: “The producers of the American Icon Awards call it a tribute to individuals who lead America. Not so fast,” according to a clip posted by TMZ. “[These icons] don’t lead America. Maybe they should, but they do fill their own essential roles. People of great individual accomplishments who give us examples to look up to. They’ve earned our respect and admiration, and they deserve this tribute.”

De Niro pulled the same stunt last month, calling the president’s supporters “deplorable.”

“I’m happy to stand … tonight to support the First Amendment,” De Niro said. “The right of the president to be a relentless and unrepentant, lying scumbag, the right of his supporters to not give a s***, and our right to do something about it.”

In June 2018, De Niro used his time on stage at the Tony Awards to shout “f*** Trump!”

Trump has fired back at De Niro.

“Robert De Niro, a very Low IQ individual, has received too many shots to the head by real boxers in movies,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “I watched him last night and truly believe he may be “punch-drunk.”

“I guess he doesn’t realize the economy is the best it’s ever been with employment being at an all-time high, and many companies pouring back into our country.”

“Wake up Punchy!” Trump concluded.
