De Niro’s lawyer says ex-wife’s extravagant spending putting intense strain on his finances

According to a new report from DailyMail, actor Robert De Niro’s lawyer is claiming that Grace Hightower, his ex-wife’s extravagant spending is putting intense strain on his finances.

Per the report “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.

…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.”

De Niro’s lawyer claims Hightower spent $1.2 million on a diamond at one point as well.

Krauss said “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”

“When does that stop? she asked “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?”

Meanwhile, Hightower claims that De Niro is worth $500 million.
