Robert De Niro says he’s running out of dinero.
The virus 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.

In a Manhattan court, De Niro argued against claims from his estranged wife, Grace Hightower, that he had unfairly cut her credit card limit and banned their two children from the New York compound where he has been staying during quarantine, per Page Six.
Caroline Krauss, De Niro’s attorney, said the actor had to rearrange his finances as his restaurant businesses are floundering at this unprecedented time.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.
