Robert De Niro Breaks Silence After Death of His Grandson


Robert De Niro has expressed his deep distress following the tragic death of his 18-year-old grandson, Leandro.

The young actor was found lifeless on Sunday afternoon in his million-dollar apartment in New York City, with a plate containing a white powdery substance nearby.

In a statement released today, De Niro shared his grief, saying, “I’m deeply distressed by the passing of my beloved grandson Leo. We’re greatly appreciative of the condolences from everyone. We ask that we please be given privacy to grieve our loss of Leo.”

Leandro De Niro Rodriguez was the son of De Niro’s adopted daughter, Drena, and artist Carlos Rodriguez. Drena announced her son’s death on Instagram, expressing her wish that love alone could have saved him.

The tragic discovery was made in a one-bedroom apartment located in the prestigious Cipriani Club Residences on Wall Street, valued at $950,000.

Authorities found the white powdery substance near Leandro’s body, but no signs of trauma were present. A friend who hadn’t heard from him in several days found him and alerted the authorities.

The concierge at 55 Wall Street confirmed that Leandro resided in the building. He had lived alone in the luxurious sixth-floor apartment for less than a year. The apartment is situated within the same stone building as the upscale Cipriani venue known for hosting lavish events.

According to the concierge, Leandro was a friendly young man who would always greet others as he came and went. “I’d see him every now and then, and he’d always say hi,” the concierge shared. “He just was friendly, kept to himself.” The concierge expressed his shock and sadness upon learning about Leandro’s tragic fate, remarking on how young he was in the photos he had seen. The loss deeply affected him, as he had been discussing his own daughter’s recent 20th birthday.

The circumstances surrounding Leandro’s death are still under investigation, and the presence of the white powdery substance raises concerns. As the family mourns the loss of their beloved grandson, they are undoubtedly seeking answers and solace during this difficult time.
