Robert De Niro, Grace Hightower

Actor Robert De Niro and his wife, Grace Hightower, have called it quits after over 20 years of marriage, a source confirmed to Page Six.

De Niro, 75, and Hightower, 63, are currently "not living together at this time," said the insider.

Another insider told PEOPLE: "Sometimes things don't work out the way you hope or want them to."

Hightower was De Niro's 2nd wife. They dated for 10 years before tying the knot in 1997. Their son Elliott was born in 1998. The couple split in 1999, but the divorce was never finalized.

In 2004 they renewed their vows, and in December 2011, a daughter, Grace, was born via a surrogate.

De Niro is father to six children and a grandfather of four.

De Niro married his first wife, actress Diahnne Abbott, in 1976. He fathered a son, Raphael, a former actor who is now a real estate broker in New York.

De Niro adopted Diahnne's daughter Drena from a previous relationship.

De Niro is best known for his role as young Vito Corleone in the 1974 film The Godfather Part II, for which he won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. He played mob figures in gangster films including Goodfellas (1990), The Untouchables (1987), Heat (1995), and Casino (1995).

  • FukkFolks2018

    Well damn

  • Dahl

    Oh no...?

  • Notatall

    75 and 63? U got 1 foot in the grave and you still couldn't make it...so sad.

  • Elevated Soul

    Another idiot who tried to "make a come back off dogging President Trump, "has bit the dust"...Clearly DeNiro should been working on his marriage instead of being obsessed with President Trump.

  • What???

    He finally realized he was simpin for a succubus.

  • smartchickfl

    He was so fine as young Vito. So sad that their split is happening right before the holidays.

  • Bashi22

    Wow he’s going to upgrade to another chocolate ?

  • Neva RuthLess

    lol you already know he loves him some black women. But on the real it’s sad when a marriage ends especially at their age, might as well stick it out.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    No surprise (Page-six always in their biz), I love DeNiro, one of my favorite actors. I can watch some of his films over and over!

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    She messed up all his money with that crap coffee she was trying to sale

  • the chosen one

    I heard that, too.

  • the chosen one

    He was fine in Casino. I loved that movie.

  • rockstar2142

    At they age they mine as well just stick it out at this point.

  • Neva RuthLess

    That’s what I’m saying.

  • What???

    Why should he stick it out when he can find a young fine chick? Her best years are OVER, she’s no fun, not a looker and eats his cash. Not worth it for him.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Oh wow, best wishes to them. I made cookies to take to my cousins house uhhruh I hope they make it there.

  • ~~eb

    YES!!

  • bemetoo

    They sad old azzes

  • Marlika

    Grace kinda rough looking in the face huh? ??

  • GuestSTAR

    I love Bobby D's old azz.

  • GuestSTAR

    Unfortunately parts of that is true......the money part anyway. He invested mega bucks into a coffee venture of her's and he ended up losing A LOT of money.
    On the flipside, he get with a youngster she gon want some form of cash to.

  • What???

    Men like Deniro get a vasectomy and stay unmarried. He’ll spend some cash but won’t lose half. He may as well go out happy not in a diaper from lookin at Grace.

  • imright

    hi Bobby ?

  • Neva RuthLess

    They have young children including a 6 year old daughter. Chill with the disrespect she’s the mother of his children.

  • bigtyme

    Don’t forget the baby he has by the chick that wa on the final season of 227. The chick with the blond hair Tookie Smith I believe. Her brother was a fashion willie Smith. He died in the 80s of aids.

  • T Willis

    And babies. The last 4 kids were born via a surrogate. If he goes younger, bet she gon want a bsby too.

  • battleax

    Bobby'll have more time now to bash the president

  • T3

    ???

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    exactly!!!!

  • pure_rachet

    The way things are set up here, they probably won't. Don't feel bad.

  • pure_rachet

    He has the whiskey face. I'd leave him too.

  • Dun Dilly

    Takes a lot for a Blk Chica to leave a rich white cat...I wonder what happened?

  • Nathan Hastings

    She looks like she has an attitude. Pay her off and enjoy your golden years Bobby D...

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Lol I'm eating 2 now ??? and I don't

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    I bought extra candy for the gingerbread house for the kids and grandkids because they eat the candy up while we make it. I ate the extra candy ???

  • Raptor Keeper >Nationalist

    They should both die in the same plane crash

  • the guest

    Deniro and Toukie Smith have twin boys.

  • the guest

    To divorce at their age, it must be financial.

    Because they don’t have to live together to be married.

    There are married couples who choose to live separately.

    Are they really looking to start dating again at 75 and 63?

    Or maybe, they want to grow old alone on their own terms.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I guess he will find another black woman.

    It seems as if he has a fetish.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Ha,ha,ha!!!

    *dead*

  • KcoolMuziq

    Robert(whom I worked with in "Imagine That") had ALL the black women eyeing him on the set.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Was that necessary? SMH

  • Bass

    Hopefully your parents, kids, and the rest of your loved ones go first.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    You black little boys are sick.

  • Faithz

    Such a heartless thing to say, but you do know that the old saying is while you digging a hole for others , you had better dig two, because you never know when you may fall in,just saying.

  • Faithz

    Wiki...From 1988 to 1996, Smith's long term partner was actor Robert De Niro, with whom she had twin sons (Aaron Kendrick De Niro and Julian Henry De Niro, born 1995)[7][8] conceived by in vitro fertilization and delivered by a surrogate mother. You can learn so much from the comment section.

  • Faithz
  • Faithz

    Smh and Looool, you told them.

  • Faithz

    I think she's attractive in a way, that beat down HSB
    HAIR SHE BOUGHT, Look rat tat, tat.

  • Faithz

    They sure is , and they love having a Latino, White woman on their arms.

  • Faithz

    Just posted that, and the things we don't know about these Actors, famous people. De Nero just seem to prefer women of color.

  • Faithz

    Man I tell you love had better be just that love, because when them pencils stop writing then there is often trouble on it's way to the relationships.

  • MMM

    I saw Heat a few years ago and i thoroughly enjoyed it. The ending left me gobsmacked!

  • WutizstillHERE!

    just as black men have fetishes for white women..

  • WutizstillHERE!

    what has me puzzled. some dude said Robert had a fetish because he married black..but when black men marry white its what then? Icaaantwiththestupidselfhatingshit...

  • rory

    Sometimes enough is enough Or too much. Why stay when you obviously had enough? The kids? The kids will be fine as long as "both" parents are/stay involved.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I said De Niro specifically.
    I didn't make a generalization of a group.

  • Faithz

    Yea...These men who want to have it both ways. When a man is bed jumping, are loving white, and Latinos,
    and don't forget those thickens from Puerto Rico, things are supposed to be all fine and good but if a woman of color do it she's ever %##@ name in the book.

  • guest

    SMDH....why break up when hes 75.

  • Thee Jaguar Doll

    Speaking of Robert De Niro, I just saw Tax Driver and It is such a damn good movie! Dog Day afternoon with Al Pacino is damn good too!

  • What???

    It’s called #whitegirlmagic

  • Blaque Mahogany

    30 years and we're senior citizens?? Ain't no divorcing, bih. Nah...

  • What???

    What about Bob and his own peace of mind? Doesn’t that count or he should just die trying to put up with her. You’re wicked AND ruthless.

  • Y me?

    Why is it a fetish as opposed to genuine attraction?

  • Prettybrowneyes

    I couldn't even comment on that mess smh...we fetishes now if a non black male gives attention or God forbid marries us ?

  • Tammie Reed

    Her wig....that is all!

  • TamG

    I wonder if the unhinged behavior he’s demonstrated lately on the political side has spilled over into the personal side. I bet it has.

    Speaking of unhinged, I’m surprised the story about the psycho former judge stabbing his wife to death (after serving prison time for almost beating her to death and getting a light sentence due to his influential friends) has not been posted on this site yet. That story is SO sad and disturbing on so many levels.

  • queen of cups

    Casino is my favorite DeNiro movie

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I understand...idk what it is but his presence alone would get me to adjusting myself...Robert is sexy...

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_

    divorce after 20 years .. nah .. now i gotta run you over with OUR car.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I dont think he does...if he did then he wouldn't have been married to Grace that long...most fetishists are like hungry animals...once they get their gratification from the fetish they become normal again until the craving starts over..

  • WutizstillHERE!

    exactly.. it is sad.

  • RealATLPeach36

    Damn!

  • WutizstillHERE!

    yep they don't even recognize the program they are being fed either..but okay..

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Yup him and Tookie were together for like 8 or nine years...

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I am sorry but I am attracted to all races so yes even if he were attracted only to blonde white women I would call it a fetish.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    I knew a guy married for 20yrs used his 401k to help famliy members and his wife divorced him and they both mid 60s

  • Precious Henry
  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Pretty sure she dry also

  • What???

    LOL!!!

  • ohdearme

    Meh it happens at 75 & 63 they're a little old to be playing games though, so who knows what the future holds.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Happens when you have $$$

  • Neva RuthLess

    Stop it. He has only married black women. Black women are beautiful and age at least 10 years slower. There is nothing wrong with being attracted to black women smfh.

  • Precious Henry

    I know!! I hate when women whom I know have waaaaaay more money than me have these tired a wigs. My wigs look better than that and I'm definitely on a budget.

  • Neva RuthLess

    Not women of color, but black women.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    That's not a fetish, that's just a preference.

  • Neva RuthLess

    Of course if they are miserable together then they should split. But at their ages why not just sleep in separate bedrooms and raise the children. Either one of them could die sooner than later especially Robert.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    That may just be a troll. They've been coming around here a lot lately.

  • Prettybrowneyes

    I think it's the use of the word fetish as opposed to maybe preference that has people triggered. I hear fetish and I think of Pulp Fiction with the gimp in all leather with a ball gag in his mouth ?

  • Neva RuthLess

    Beyoncé is a known offender smh.

  • iWasteTime

    Sandra,
    What do you need to reinstate the old blog format?
    A membership fee?
    Guaranteed Ad dollars?

  • Rayne

    Ain’t it ?

  • stav

    Why would they be a fetish , and not just a preference?

  • Y me?

    So unless a man is attracted to everything its a fetish? Any specificity in dating preferences = fetish? Or is it only the specifications that society has deemed as undesirable? So if the man only likes normal weight women and no obese women does he have a fetish for normal weight women?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    We will have to disagree.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Just block em .... so sick of the shyt ..... https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c1425c997ed3319b16098cad0d4bebaabde80cd22860d557863b4ff2c949aed9.gif Troll city up through here ... got so many logins blocked .... chile

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    To me a fetish is something you have to have or do to be sexually satisfied and the only way he seems to able to be satisfied in a relationship is if his partner is black.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    There is something unhealthy if you're only attracted to one type.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    If he said he was attracted to all women except black women would you be ok with it?

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_

    classic.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    She isn't the only black female he's been with over the years. She's just the female with whom he's had the longest relationship plus he was in his 50's when they met and his attractiveness was diminishing.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Hope it we get a post about the slew of murders that are going in in Atlanta in the last week. About three double murders and that 8 month pregnant 14 year old who got shot in her Head!

  • GuestSTAR

    Yeah, I believe she miscarried a baby by him as well.

  • Neva RuthLess

    I somewhat agree it depends on the mindset. Every race has their own unique physical traits that can be alluring. But the word fetish is often used for non black men who really enjoy being with black women. People make it seem like something is wrong with a man for loving black women. That’s canceled.

  • Neva RuthLess

    What about women. Women are actually more biased when it comes to dating more than men. Is it wrong for women to only date blonde men, tall men, men with green eyes, wealthy men? Are women fetishizing men?

  • TMW

    That’s “healthy” because they aren’t attracted to just one type of woman. ? I definitely have a preference for black men. It’s not a fetish. It’s what I like. #GTFOHWTS

  • Precious Henry

    Not the Queen?! LOL!

  • Y me?

    I wouldn't care. Im not attracted to short men. To each their own. My comment was about clarifying your usage of the word fetish. What makes something a fetish vs a preference? Fetish implies the attraction is abnormal. I see that some commenters below already explained this to u tho

  • Coy little wink

    These senior citizens are something else!

    That's what most people say but they don't want to leave America. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. ??

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I'm really trying to ignore the ish. If you like black women, it's a fetish. If a black woman is attracted to you, it's because you have money. Because, you know all black women are gold diggers.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I keep forgetting 50% of my readers read the blog on mobile phones now. ?

    In other news, I'm low key feeling this new Mariah Carey CD. I was a little skeptical after seeing that performance with her and Ty Dolla $ on that late night show. But, it's a few bops on here...kinda classic Mariah vibe.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Did you see the movie "Flawless"? De Niro played a homophobic cop who saves the life of his drag queen neighbor. It's really good. I watched it 3 times in the last 3 months.

    Yes it’s awful 14 year old preg and get killed where is the black lives matter

  • Malcom Flex

    BI's say he's got a young side piece been saying this for awhile now.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    What's wrong with this format?

  • Malcom Flex

    He wants to be free from his aging wife to get with his young side chick who of course will be cheating on his elderly azz that's the karma of life. Old men want to and can't get it up without pills. Young women resent the smell of old men but love their money.

  • Malcom Flex

    Sis, he wants to be free with his side piece without fussing with his wife, he's a wealthy and spoiled actor used to getting his way this is a story as old as time. And as I said above the young side chick will cheat on him and take his money. Thats real.

  • Coy little wink

    Lolololool

    We are dining out I am so relieved! But I'm making a sweet potato cheesecake...Friday or Saturday tho

  • Malcom Flex

    Side chick.

  • Malcom Flex

    Stuff happens. Better than being a baby mama she's the legal WIFE entitled to prolly half of his assets he's got a ton of assets/legacy and lots of kids with her. Grace and their kids will be ok and is protected.

    What about all that money and legacy for the kids???

  • KcoolMuziq

    Wow! I have to check it out.

    Robert's ex-wife, Diahnne Abbott, played a small role in Taxi Driver. She was only on screen for a few minutes, but you could sense the passion between them.

    Oh okay thank you. I missed it!

  • Kanyade

    I remember reading about them having a public altercation in a restaurant and something to the effect of him losing money in her restaurant/store business??? :( I wonder, too, if finances were a cause---especially after so much time together (30 years including the ten before they married).

    Oh well, good luck to them.

    Happy Thanksgiving y'all. Also, today is my birthday. I'm at work for half a day as my job let us off. I plan to do a little shopping later.

    Wives get disenfranchised too.

    The FBIs Top Ten Child Support evaders are all married men.

    But Robert De Niro is an upstanding and respectful man. He wasn’t married to Toukie Smith and he still took care of her and their children after they broke up. Grace and their children will never be without because Robert Deniro has good character.

    I visited Mrs. Deniro’s coffee company website. The venture was not necessary given the access she has to celebrity fundraising. She could have held an annual fundraiser for Rwanda instead of “investing/depleting” his funds in creating a coffee brand and company.

    Way to take my comment out of context and make it something it isn't.
    No when someone only likes one type of anything that makes that person super boring and somewhat insular.
    It's like eating the same thing for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There has to be some variety in life.
    What is normal weight women vs. obese women? That's relative.

I was like well, damn. Why don't you tell us how you really feel about her?

Good news is I seasoned the chicken last night and I prepared the baked beans to let the seasonings set in overnight...now all I have to do is pop them in the oven. My fam loves my greens so I went out and braved the crowds last night to get some more...meat is cooking for the greens and then I am done!

    She has too much money to be wearing such a tragic wig.

  • Neva RuthLess

    Usually laziness. Black hair grows thick and beautiful when you take care of it. Black hair you have to water it for it to thrive and flourish. But at her age she may have thinning problems I don’t know.

  • MJF

    Various reasons, as a protective style, some people have no edges, some people legit have no hair for medical reasons. The question here shouldn't be why black women wear wigs, white women do as well. You should be able to do what you want in life. Feel me?

  • Neva RuthLess

    But the wigs be busted though.

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    Dinero loves sistas , can you blame him ? Older lady told me he had an affair with the actress from the 227 show back in the day also.

    Sorry to hear this. Hope they can work it out again. Marriage is tough! I hope this is just a bump on their journey.

  • Renee26

    And I read below it was about a failed business.... Um businesses are always a gamble especially resturants so that wasn't a valid reason either IMO

  • Mz_Opinionated

    I don't do Potlucks. I've seen too much. People just aren't clean and I am particular about my ingredients. PASS!

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I know of 2 couples who were married for over 40+ years before deciding to call it quits.
    I hate to say it, but I think they both waited about 20 years too long.

    Probably flirted with some 25 yr. old Sista at the grocery store and Grace wasn't having it. Bobby loves him some Black women.

  • MJF

    Lol true

  • Li-Wright

    They're separated folks, not divorced! And he's 75 for god's sake. As men get older they get crankier. Men do. not. like. getting old.

  • Li-Wright

    Don't get me started on wigs. If you're going to wear one, wear one that doesn't look like a wig. Don't have people looking at the wig trying to decide if it is a wig! I have seen some rachet wigs. Simply ratchet. Unclean, fuzzy, dirty, knotty. Pleez! Put some money on your hair!

  • Li-Wright

    Entertainers know how to get wigs styled so that they don't look like "wigs"....but their hair.

  • Neva RuthLess

    I always wondered what’s the name of the phenomenon of the grumpy old man. I swear psychology wrote an article about men becoming more cranky and mean the older they get especially in their advanced years. Lol they be Tripping. Just researched it’s called irritable male syndrome they go through chemical and hormonal changes and loss of male identity. Which causes anxiety, anger and other issues.

  • What???

    Thanks for letting me be obnoxious Sandra. Much appreciated and Happy Thanksgiving!

    Years ago a aunt who was head nurse at a Nursing home said that they had a OLD man and his wife at the nursing home, and one evening one of the aides was in the old lady room, and they heard somebody gasping for breath, and it was the old man who had gotten stuck trying to climb down from his wife bed after a good work out, and they had to get him some oxygen with a quickness, because he could hardly breath. When love is good it's good, when love is gone it's gone.

    Half of these black men can't get along with black women. He's dating and marrying black women while many black men won't. Especially those with money. He stayed married to her for 20 years. That equals about 100 years for a Hollywood marriage. He's a great actor and relationships that do not work cannot take that away from him.

    Honestly I don't give a rats arse what other races do.
    It's so strange how we have to compare ourselves to white people all the time. I could care less to be honest.
    And yes I am aware of this, especially with orthodox Jews, nevertheless, the hair matches their natural texture.

  • http://bitchbecomesher.com Tasha Nicole

    Again, I could care less what white women do. They are not the standard to which I judge myself against.
    I'm obviously not talking about people who wear it for medical reasons, like duh.
    I'm convinced that it's insecurity.
    Usually the straighter the wig hair and the longer the wig hair, the more delusional the woman is. #Observations
