Celebrity website TMZ and People magazine, quoting anonymous sources on Tuesday, reported that De Niro’s spokesman did not return a request for comment.

The actor and Hightower tied the knot in 1997 and have two children. It was the “Raging Bull” actor’s second marriage.

“Sometimes things don’t work out the way you hope or want them to,” a source close to the family told People magazine.
