Robert De Niro’s grandson’s cause of death revealed by his heartbroken mother

The cause of death of Leandro De Niro Rodriguez, grandson of Robert De Niro, has been revealed.

The 19-year-old tragically passed away earlier this week, and his mother, Drena De Niro, 51, confirmed the news on Instagram as she bid farewell to her “beautiful sweet angel.”

Drena, the daughter of Hollywood actor Robert and actress Diahnne Abbott, has now broken her silence regarding further details.

Although a toxicology report has not yet confirmed it, Leandro’s mother claimed that her son ingested pills laced with fentanyl.

In an Instagram post, she wrote, “Someone sold him fentanyl-laced pills that they knew were laced, yet still sold them to him.”

“So, for all these people still messing around selling and buying this stuff, my son is gone forever.”
