De Niro Can't Get The Staff

Hollywood veteran ROBERT DE NIRO is allegedly facing a domestic headache after firing his household staff - because no one wants to replace them.

The RAGING BULL star is at a loose end after reports his fiery wife GRACE HIGHTOWER intimidates staff has spread to employment agencies.

A source tells, "Everyone loves Bob - it's the wife that drives everyone crazy."

De Niro dismissed his domestics after former maid LUCYNA TURYK-WAWRYNOWICZ allegedly stole $100,000 worth of his wife's jewellery.

She later blamed Hightower's "mean" nature for provoking her actions, prompting the revered actor to sack the rest of his employees too.

PageSix reports, "De Niro sat down his longtime butler Frederick and told him his services were no longer needed. No explanation was given, and Frederick was sent away with two months severance."

A similar fate befell his sons' nanny, but the Hollywood couple have yet to find replacements.
