It appears that another LONG TIME celeb couple is calling it quits! Robert De Niro and his wife of over 20 years, Grace Hightower have split according to PAGE SIX!
A source close to the HIGH POWER couple confirm that the two are no longer living together.
If you follow SOCIAL MEDIA we will see that since late Summer, De Niro has been spotted at EVENTS solo–events that in the past his wife would be at his side.
De Niro and Hightower married in 1997 after dating for nearly a decade, and they have two kids together. But this is not the first time the couple’s split up. De Niro filed for divorce in 1999, two years into their marriage, and they reportedly had a custody battle over their son at the time until they smoothed out their troubles and the divorce did not proceed.

De Niro met Hightower — a former flight attendant for TWA — in 1987 when she was working at famed eatery Mr. Chow in London.
She said of their early relationship in a 2013 New York Times profile: “It was an ease-in. It wasn’t a whirlwind.”
