Robert De Niro says hes running out of dinero.
The coronavirus dealt a massive financial blow to the actors finances he revealed in court, as his estranged wife asked for an emergency order to raise her monthly American Express card credit limit from $50,000 to $100,000.
The Irishman actor appeared by phone on a Skype call in his Manhattan divorce case with Grace Hightower as her lawyer told a judge that De Niro unfairly cut her monthly Am-Ex allowance from $100,000 to $50,000 and said she and their children had been banned from an upstate compound where De Niro is staying during the pandemic.
But lawyers for De Niro said he cut Hightowers credit card limit because hes taken a huge financial hit as the restaurant chain Nobu and Greenwich Hotel, both of which he has stakes in, have been closed or partially closed for months with barely any business.
De Niros lawyer, Caroline Krauss, told the judge that Nobu lost $3 million in April and another $1.87 million in May. And he had to pay investors $500,000 on a capital call, which he borrowed money from his business partners to make, because he doesnt have the cash, Krauss said.
Krauss also explained that under the terms of their 2004 prenuptial agreement De Niro is only required to pay Hightower $1 million a year as long as hes making $15 million or more in income and if his income declines his payments to her proportionally do too.

Looks like “Trump Karma” is catching up to Bobby LittleBigMouth...
The Public or the Hidden finances ?
Tears are staining my keyboard.
Hate never pays off.
More likely Cuomo.
That’s what you get for backing the wholesale shut down of the American economy for 3 months.
She’s talkin’ to him.
Yeah what happened to the huge bailout money his restaurants took?
And he hates Trump but loves the Chinese.
I would love to see this POS homeless in Hollywood.
That statement, is this little rat weasel’s attempt by him to get out in front of his, (a multi-millionaire mind you), taking full advantage of the millions in bailout money so he doesn’t have to pay his own employees, or pay his share of un-employment insurance for them.
Did I mention that De Niro is a rat weasel? Typical, hypocrite democrat POS.
I’ll line up to not send money.
