Trump-Hating Robert De Niro Could Lose Half of $500 Million Fortune to Ex-Wife

The divorce proceedings are centered around a prenup agreement.

A Trump-hating actor who recently split with his wife could lose a huge amount of money in divorce court, according to Thursday reports.

“Robert De Niro got hit with a real summer blockbuster in court Thursday, when lawyers for his estranged wife demanded half of his ‘$500 million’ fortune — despite a 2004 prenup that his side insists limits her to a $6 million apartment, $500,000 cash and $1 million a year in alimony,” Page Six said.

De Niro is known for his vile anti-Trump rhetoric, which he put on full display at last year’s Tony Awards. He recently called it quits for the second time with Grace Hightower, whom he remarried in 2004 after first divorcing in 1999.

Page Six said a prenup agreement is the source of hotly contested debate in the divorce proceedings.

“De Niro contends that the prenup sets strict limits on her take in a divorce,” the report said. “Hightower is solely entitled to $6.5 million in cash and property, his side contends, plus annual alimony of $1 million and half the value of a second apartment. But her side insists the prenup’s language additionally entitles her to half of what the “Goodfellas” star has made during the remarriage.”

De Niro, aside from being an actor and producer, has amassed part of his fortune as a restauranteur. He owns a large stake in the Nobu sushi chain and the swanky Tribeca Grill in New York City.

Parler CEO John Matze Forced to Flee Home Under Deluge of Left-Wing Terror Threats

Matze is suing Amazon for deplatforming Parler.

Parler CEO John Matze has been forced to flee his home and go into hiding after receiving an onslaught of left-wing death threats. Parler, a free speech social media platform, has been temporarily shut down in an extensive deplatforming campaign. Amazon promptly cut Parler’s access to its Web Services after the US Capitol riot earlier this month, cherry-picking examples of content that violate Parler’s terms of service and claiming the platform is being used for violent purposes.

Matze made the frank admission in a court filing for Parler’s lawsuit against Amazon, requesting that the court keep any disclosures about his personal life and location secret. Parler is currently suing Amazon in federal court for its immediate revocation of Parler’s hosting agreement, arguing that Amazon agreed to provide 30 days notice before any potential termination of Parler’s hosting, pursuant to the party’s original agreement.

Matze reveals that he’s been forced to leave his home and go into hiding with his family, citing Amazon Web Services’ “vilification” of his company.

Employees of Amazon have allegedly been threatened and harassed as well for shutting down Parler. The court filing in favor of redaction references these threats in requesting the court provide redaction of personal information to both sides.

Both sides of this dispute have shown that their employees have suffered real harassment and threats—including, on both sides, death threats—owing to the charged nature of this litigation.

Parler therefore agrees with AWS that safety and security concerns justify the limited sealings requested here,” Parler requests in the Amazon lawsuit.

Parler’s administrators are still seeking to return the free speech social media platform to full operation, although it could take weeks to bring it back online. They may have learned a lesson about the futility of contracting hosting services with a Big Tech monopoly such as Amazon.
