Robert De Niro told a judge this week that his personal finances have been large-impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic, with his lawyer claiming the actor will be “lucky” to earn $7.5 million in 2020.
The actor’s lawyers said: “He is going to be lucky if he makes $7.5 million this year,”
“These people, in spite of his robust earnings, have always spent more than he has earned so this 76-year-old robust man couldn’t retire even if he wanted to because he can’t afford to keep up with his lifestyle expense”.

“I’m not a believer that a man who has an admitted worth of $500m and makes $30m a year, all of a sudden in March he needs to cut down by 50 per cent and ban her from the house,” added another lawyer.

DE NIRO ON TRUMP: ‘Down with This Motherf****r!!’
A-list actor Robert De Niro escalated his war-of-words with President Trump this week; telling a packed audience in New York City that it’s time to be “down with this motherf****r” as the crowd erupted in applause.
De Niro was speaking at an event honoring comedian Bill Crystal Monday when he offered a mock apology to the Commander-in-Chief.
“I just get so upset with that j***off in the White House,” said the star of ‘Raging Bull’ and ‘Goodfellas.’
“Boo is right! Down with this motherf—er!” he yelled.
Robert De Niro was thrust into the national spotlight weeks ago when a “suspicious package” containing a pipe-bomb was sent to his lower New York City production offices.
His battle with the White House goes back months, when the actor screamed “F*** Trump” at an entertainment award ceremony and referred to the President as a “mutt.”

THE LATEST: Governor Cuomo Deploys NATIONAL GUARD to Protect New Yorkers
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo called-in the National Guard Wednesday evening after multiple “suspicious packages” were sent to prominent politicians and news organizations in New York City and the surrounding suburbs.
Cuomo announced his decision on social media just hours after CNN’s New York offices were evacuated; saying “Fear is the intent and we are trying to counter fear, so we’ve deployed National Guard, we doubled the state police, you’ll see more of a police presence in New York.”
“I’ve been governor of New York for seven years, I’ve faced many terrorism situations, and this works on multiple levels. The first level is to do a full investigation. Let’s find the person or people involved,” he said Thursday. “Second, especially in New York, you want to retain a sense of control, you want people to know that you’re acting and you’re acting appropriately and they’re safe. Fear is the intent and we are trying to counter fear, so we’ve deployed National Guard, we doubled the state police, you’ll see more of a police presence in New York,” posted Cuomo.
Out of an abundance of caution, I am deploying additional National Guard soldiers and directing State law enforcement to double security at vital transportation assets across New York.
