Robert De Niro and Wife, Grace Hightower, Homeless

Robert De Niro and his wife, actress Grace Hightower, are now looking for a place to stay.

In June, a fire ravaged their multimillion-dollar Central Park West (New York) apartment, leaving them homeless.

The fire was triggered by lint buildup in the clothes dryer. The couple planned to renovate their burned-out home, but it was considered uninhabitable.

In the meantime, the couple had set their sights on at $100,000 a month apartment rental at the posh Park Imperial but the deal fell through, according to tabloids, because Mr. De Niro felt the apartment was “misrepresented.” The lease was dissolved and the apartment is back on the market.

According to reports, Hightower wants a five-bedroom apartment with ample closet space.
