Robert De Niro’s acting style often means that he seamlessly transitions into his roles, almost making you forget who you are watching. That said, reports in recent years have suggested that his acting choices were guided not so much by the project itself as by his need to pay alimony to a previous wife.
Is Robert De Niro married?
Robert De Niro is married to Grace Hightower, but the couple have been divorced since 2018.
The actor is in an ongoing dispute with his estranged wife over money in their divorce proceedings.
Robert’s attorney, Caroline Krauss, claimed in a virtual divorce hearing that the Oscar winner had to keep working in lesser films like The War With Grandpa and even the Warburtons ads in the UK, to keep up with the expensive divorce payments.

She said, as reported in The Sun: “Mr. De Niro is 77 years old. While he loves his craft, he shouldn’t be forced to work at this amazing pace, because he has to. When will that stop?
“When will he get the chance not to take on every project that comes along and not work six-day weeks, 12-hour days so he can keep up with Ms. Hightower’s thirst for Stella McCartney?
“He could get sick tomorrow and the party is over.”
Her attorney, Kevin McDonough, disputed this claim, as well as another about Grace’s alleged purchase of an expensive diamond, instead claiming that the actor is very happily spending money on himself.

He said, “If he[De Niro] wants to lead or force his family to leave their old home as he spends millions and millions and millions on himself, on his own house, on renovating what his lawyers call his cottage, which he has donated millions and millions in years past, he can take that position.
“There are no cuts and no slowing down in Mr De Niro’s lifestyle.

“If he’s flying down to see his friends in Florida or anywhere, it’s a private jet.”
Robert and Grace have two children together: Elliot, born in 1998, and Helen, born in 2011, reportedly through a surrogate.
Before that, Robert’s first marriage was to Diahnne Abbott, an actress he met while making a taxi driver.
They had a son Raphael, born in 1976, and Robert adopted Diahnne’s daughter Drena, born in 1971.
After their relationship ended in divorce in 1988, Robert was in a relationship with model Toukie Smith, with whom he had two children, twins Julian and Aaron, who were born via surrogate mother.
