Drena De Niro is Diahnne Abbott and Robert De Niro’s daughter. The latter adopted her after marrying her mom in 1976, but the name of Drena’s real father still remains a mystery. The woman has a very warm relationship with Robert even despite the fact that he isn’t a husband of Diahnne anymore. The Godfather star even bought his daughter a $2.85 million Manhattan penthouse apartment in 2014.
Drena tried her hand at various professions. She was a DJ, a model who collaborated with Jean-Paul Gaultier and Vivienne Westwood, a celebrity fashion consultant and a musical supervisor for Giorgio Armani.
In 1996, Drena De Niro decided to follow in her parents’ footsteps and got engaged in acting. She made a film debut in Grace of My Heart and proceeded with the roles in various films. For instance, she appeared alongside Robert in Wag the Dog, Great Expectations, Showtime and Joy. In 2001, De Niro wrote and directed the documentary Girls and Dolls. And in 2018, she played in A Star Is Born with Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper.
In the early 2000s, Drena was in a relationship with artist Carlos Rodriguez. Their son Leandro drew his first breath in 2003. She later dated Austin Young who was 11 years younger and accused the woman of attacking him in the street in 2011. By the way, Robert De Niro disapproved of their romantic involvement.
A curious fact: Drena was named after a river from Nobel-winning writer Ivo Andric’s book The Bridge on the Drina.
