From NY Post: Robert De Niro showed he can still be a “Raging Bull” Thursday as he had a meltdown outside a Manhattan courthouse, screaming at his driver for not showing up at the right place.
The “Goodfellas” actor went nuts while frantically searching for his missing driver after spending the entire morning in court in his divorce case with estranged wife Grace Hightower.
“You’re not in front! You’re not where you dropped us off!” De Niro squawked into his black LG flip phone outside 60 Centre St., as he shielded his face with the paper.
The driver appeared to respond on the phone, but De Niro — who was flanked by shutterbugs — wasn’t having it. “On Worth Street! Then you’d see all the photographers here! You’re not where you dropped us off!” he continued railing. His lawyer meekly offered, “Let’s go back in the building.”
“This is ridiculous,” the Oscar winner scoffed, as he marched toward the back of the courthouse.
Meanwhile, tourists whipped out their cellphones to snap photos of the Manhattan-born star. “Take it easy, Bobby!” one shouted.
De Niro and Hightower had just spent hours in Manhattan Supreme Court, where their lawyers holed up behind closed doors to hash out their divorce.
The soon-to-be exes, who were married for 20 years, are fighting over custody of their 7-year-old daughter. The judge called the warring parents back to court for 2:15 p.m.
