Alarming Reports Over Robert De Niro, Please Pray

Renowned Hollywood actor Robert De Niro is reportedly struggling with the unexpected death of his grandson, Leandro De Niro Rodriguez, who was found dead in a New York apartment on July 2. While there is speculation that Leandro’s death was caused by a fentanyl overdose, officials have not yet released an official cause of death.

Following the revelation of his grandson’s passing, De Niro, known for his role in “Heat,” released a public statement expressing his distress over the loss, appreciating the condolences received, and requesting privacy as the family grieves. De Niro was reportedly in a somber mood at Leandro’s funeral, which was held on July 7, and was attended by close family members and friends. Since then, De Niro has largely been silent, although friends report that the 79-year-old actor is finding it challenging to cope with his loss.

One of De Niro’s friends, speaking to Radar Online, shared that De Niro had a particular fondness for his grandson and that he is currently in a “very dark place,” with everyone hoping that he can muster the strength to move on.

Leandro was the fourth son of Drena De Niro, the adopted daughter of Robert De Niro. Drena is the daughter of Diahnne Abbot, who Robert married in 1976. Drena also released a heartfelt statement in memory of her son, describing him as “all that was ever pure and real in my life.” She wrote a tender message expressing her love for her son and the indescribable joy he brought into her life, acknowledging the pain of his absence and her determination to continue spreading the love and light he brought to her as a mother.
