Hollywood legend Robert De Niro is unable to turn down acting roles because he must pay for his estranged wife's expensive tastes, the actor's lawyer has claimed. Caroline Krauss told a Manhattan court that he is struggling financially because of the pandemic, a massive tax bill and the demands of Grace Hightower, who filed for divorce in 2018 after 21 years of marriage. The court has been asked to settle how much De Niro should pay Ms Hightower, 66, until the terms of the prenuptial agreement the couple negotiated in 2004 takes effect. “Mr De Niro is 77 years old, and while he loves his craft, he should not be forced to work at this prodigious pace because he has to,” Ms Krauss told the court. “When does that stop? When does he get the opportunity to not take every project that comes along and not work six-day weeks, 12-hour days so he can keep pace with Ms Hightower’s thirst for Stella McCartney?”

For years architects, particularly in Los Angeles, have sought to outdo each other with ever more palatial residences featuring breathtaking infinity pools, in-home cinemas and flashy helipads. But questions are now being asked over whether the US has finally reached peak mega mansion. The biggest property so far is referred to by luxury estate agents as the "giga-mansion". Officially called "The One" it is America's largest and most expensive house and sits on a hill in Bel-Air, with 360 degree views of Los Angeles. Construction began eight years ago, when the sky seemed the limit for futuristic Bond villain-style lairs, and it was only very recently completed. Sprawling across 105,000 sq ft it features 21 bedrooms, 42 bathrooms, five swimming pools, a moat, a 50-seat cinema, and its own nightclub.
