For the past four years, actor Robert De Niro has become more well-known for spewing hatred and expressing his desire to physically harm President Trump than for acting.
In January 2019, De Niro made a video encouraging people to vote. In the video, De Niro called President Trump a “punk, a dog, a pig, a con, a bullshit artist, a mutt who doesn’t know what he’s talking about,” threatening, “I’d like to punch him in the face.”
De Niro, the Raging Bull actor who’s spent most of the past 4 years acting more like a raging lunatic, is now claiming that he’s running out of dinero. Instead of blaming the Democrat-Socialist Mayor Bill de Blasio of NYC or Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo for allowing massive protests/riots to take place in the city while shutting down businesses during the COVID pandemic, he’s blaming the Wuhan virus for his financial woes.
Page Six reports – The coronavirus dealt a massive blow to the actor’s 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 “The Irishman” actor appeared 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 AmEx 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 Hightower’s credit card limit because he’s 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 Niro’s 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 doesn’t have the cash,” Krauss said.
It couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy…
