Recently, in court, Robert De Niro landed himself in hot water with fans concerning his financial situation. His estranged wife, Grace Hightower, asked for an emergency order to raise her monthly credit card limit from $50,000 to $100,000. De Niro’s lawyers claim that his finances have been hit hard by the pandemic.

The judge says that De Niro was forced to borrow from business partners to pay investors $500,000 because “he doesn’t have the cash.” His lawyers claim “He is going to be lucky if he makes $7.5m this year… These people, in spite of his robust earnings, have always spent more than he has earned so this 76-year-old robust man couldn’t retire even if he wanted to because he can’t afford to keep up with his lifestyle expense.”
