Robert De Niro’s estranged wife Grace Hightower wants HALF his $500M fortune despite $6.5M prenup

Robert De Niro and his estranged wife Grace Hightower have had a rocky relationship. Though they’ve been married since 1997, there were times when it looked like the couple wasn’t going to make it. De Niro filed for divorce in 1999. The two fought over custody of their now 20-year-old son Elliot but eventually found a way to work things out. And the divorce was dropped in 2004. 

They would go on to have another child together in 2011. But in November of last year, the couple separated again. And instead of fighting over the children, this time Hightower wants the money. 

According to Page Six, yesterday lawyers for Hightower stated that they believe she is entitled to half of his $500 million fortune. 

In order to get this $250 million payout, she’ll have to fight a 2004 prenup she signed which stated ate she would be limited to a $6 million apartment, $500,000 in cash and $1 million a year in alimony. 

Now, the two are arguing over the wording the prenup. De Niro believes the document is clear. He also states that she’s entitled to half the value of a second apartment. 

But her legal team believes the prenup would grant her half of what De Niro has earned since the couple reunited in 2004. 

De Niro’s fortune comes from not only his acting credits but his stake in the Nobu sushi chain. 

Hightower also believes she’s due an additional 50 percent of what he’s earned from his ownership in Tribeca Grill, a Greenwich hotel and Canal Productions. 

De Niro’s lawyers believe Hightower is attempting to nickel-and-dime the veteran actor for his fortune. 

What do you believe she’s entitled to?
