Wife of Dennis Hopper May Want Him Dead

by at . Comments

Women. You can't live with 'em ... if you're Dennis Hopper.

The 73-year-old has filed legal papers in his bitter divorce, and his doctor claims the less he has to do with his estranged wife, Victoria, the longer he'll live.

The actor's lawyer, Joe Mannis, says while his client battles advanced prostate cancer, Victoria has "repeatedly subjected him to severe emotional distress."

He's not kidding, either According to Dr. David Agus' declaration, "The presence of his estranged wife is hampering Mr. Hopper's present cancer care..."

"It is my belief and my recommendation that the less Mr. Hopper has to do with his estranged wife, the more likely he is to have his life extended."

This marriage may be in worse shape than Tiger and Elin Woods'.

Dennis is asking the judge for an order keeping Victoria 15 yards away from him and barring her from his residence. Probably not the worst idea.

Dennis filed for divorce against Victoria last month. She claims in response that Dennis' adult children are pulling his strings and want to cut her out of his will.

In their declarations, Dennis and his doctor say he is of sound mind to make his own decisions. If they divorce, she loses a 25 percent cut of Dennis' estate.

Hopper says that Victoria's mother "...told me in November 2009 that I should leave the bulk of my property to [Victoria] as I was going to die soon."

"I found this statement distressing, inappropriate, bizarre, and disturbing."

Dennis also says Victoria and her mom grilled him late one night in December about how much money and property Victoria would get when he died.

As for Victoria's claims that Dennis smoked medical marijuana in front of their young girl, he says he has never smoked anything in front of the child.

Dennis says Victoria's demand that he not smoke within six hours of seeing their daughter is "an absurd request." He says he would agreed to one hour.

Dennis is asking for daily visitation rights to 6-year-old Galen.


You are absolutely right,family, friends, and marijuana!!


This is disgusting that this women his wife would do this..I haven't heard anything about love or wanting to make her marriage work. Her and the mother in-law are dividing his money already and he isn't dead yet that must be very hurtful. His adult children should back there father and protect his estate. I he is a great actor and I wish he wasn't sick and going through all this. No one should have to deal with this he should be enjoying family and friends right now.

This can not be the same Dennis Hopper who was married to Mamas and the Papas'Michelle Phillips for what 6 or 11 days.
