De Niro’s estranged wife won’t get half of his acting income | Page Six Celebrity News



Robert De Niro’s estranged wife Grace Hightower isn’t entitled to half of the money the actor made in Hollywood and business ventures after the divorce, an appeals court ruled Thursday.

Hightower argued that a 2004 prenuptial agreement that she struck with the 78-year-old “The Irishman” star entitled her to half of his earnings from when they were together — claiming they are marital assets to be split evenly.

But the Appellate Division rejected Hightower’s arguments, upholding a lower court’s ruling from February.

“The husband’s income earned during the marriage and other business assets acquired during that time are his separate property,” reads the appellate court decision.

In February, Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Matthew Cooper wrote that the prenup “establishes that the bulk of [De Niro’s] income earned during the marriage, whether from acting, film production, or business ventures, constitutes his separate property.”
