Robert De Niro Net Worth

The legendary Hollywood actor is said to earn salaries in excess of $20 million for each movie. For a long time, he has been an investor in the TriBeCa neighborhood. Reports suggest he has residences on the west and east sides of Manhattan. His 4,158 square feet New York apartment is worth $14 million.

Robert De Niro owns and co-owns more than 27 restaurants and hotels around the world. These business endeavors and his active career years as a successful actor are the sources of his net worth which is estimated to be about $500,000,000 (Five Hundred Million US Dollars).

With the ongoing case of divorce with his last wife Grace Hightower, the star’s net worth is subject to debate as the divorce and division are sure to cause a dip in his pocket.

His estranged wife Grace Hightower claims that he’s worth $500 million and wants her own common-law half of these marital assets. This could really cost the award-winning actor a lot of fortune.

A prenup was put in place in 2004 which limited Grace Hightower to the possession of their $6 million dollar apartment, a cash payment of $500,000, and an annual alimony payout of $1 million, but Grace wants more. A huge, multi-million dollar payout could go her way if lawyers can successfully argue that Robert’s net worth at the time of their marriage and prenuptial agreement has grown significantly and Grace Hightower deserves a part of this increase.
An appeals court ruled in 2021 that Robert De Niro’s ex-wife Grace Hightower is not entitled to half of the actor’s earnings from Hollywood and commercial enterprises following the couple’s divorce.
