On top of having prostrate cancer, actor Dennis Hopper is currently in the middle of a nasty divorce with his wife Victoria. Reports indicate that Hopper is too frail and ill to undergo further chemotherapy and is no longer able to defend himself in his divorce proceedings.

Hoppers attorney, Joseph Mannis, filed papers stating that Dennis is terminally ill. One of his doctors stated, “It is doubtful that Mr. Hopper will ever recover sufficiently to be subject to a deposition.”

The document paints a very bleak picture of Dennis, saying that the 73-year-old weighs 100 pounds. The actor has expressed the hope that chemo treatments will enable him to return to work.

Victoria and Dennis have been fighting over spousal support. Hopper says that he can only afford $5,000 per month. Court documents state that his liquid assets are a mere $300,000. His accountant stated that, “Hopper basically lived on income derived from new acting services.”

This information doesn’t bode well for Victoria, who claims that Dennis earned millions in recent years from the sale of his artwork, thought tax documents say that Dennis has only profited $45,000 from the sales.

In February Hopper filed a restraining order against Victoria — read more on that here.

The couple have a 6-year-old daughter together. View photos of the two below.
