Lawyers for Robert Deniro are slamming his estranged wife, Grace Hightower over her spending habits.
During a court proceeding on April 16 in the ongoing divorce between the former couple, Caroline Krause, attorney for 77-year-old Deniro claimed the septugenarian was working a strenuous schedule of six days a week and 12 hours a day to keep up with Hightower’s shopping.
“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? When does he get the opportunity to not take every project that comes along and not work six-day weeks, 12-hour days so he can keep pace with Ms. Hightower’s thirst for Stella McCartney?”
Robert Deniro and soon-to-be ex-wife, Grace Hightower have been embroiled in a legal battle over alimony and other financial assets.
Grace Hightower is demanding half of what De Niro is worth but De Niro claims that tax issues and the pandemic have affected his financial security and, in turn, the amount he can allocate to his estranged wife.
