Hopper Order To Pay Thousands In Spousal Support

| Filed under: Legal MattersLove Line

Looks like things are coming to an end for the bitter divorce battle between Dennis Hopper and his estranged wife Victoria.

According to a court ruling, Hopper's soon-to-be ex and their 7-year-old daughter will remain living on his property until the divorce gets finalized.

The 73-year-old Hopper is currently battling prostate cancer and did not attend the hearing but was described by his attorney as being "desperately ill." So sad.

But even worse, the judge decided that Hopper will have to pay his ex $12,000 a month in spousal and child support.

After the court hearing, Victoria spoke to the press, naturally, and said "It's heartbreaking and I hope it can be amicably resolved."

Maybe if you weren't trying to suck him dry of all his money, it'd be solved amicably.

Oh, and the judge also awarded Victoria $200,000 in attorney and accountant fees. Someone's a lucky lady!

As for Hopper's attorneys, they will not be contesting the spousal and child support but they will be preparing to fight over the prenuptial agreement.

In the mean time, a hearing on how to divide his life insurance policy will be held later this May.

Do U think she got a fair amount of spousal and child support?

    While we've all been slagging on her, it could be that Dennis had that man-thing going where divorcing men get very bitter about their exes and don't want them to get a cent



  2. 2

    yeah because he HAD A FUCKING CHILD DUMBASS.
    what do you think shes going to pay for food/ books/ LIFE with?? dreams and moonbeams?? what the fuck?? sounds like the judge knows a fuckload more then you and tends to be less susceptible to staged pr/ lawyer releases!! thank god!



  3. 3

    I like Neil Fifer's quote: 'Do you know how you can tell if a woman is crazy? Answer: check to see if she's got a vagina!' (joke also works with female: gold-diggers as well).



  4. 4

    Everyone is being too hard on this woman. It's awful that Hopper is so ill, but that is irrelevant in this case. They were married for like 15 years and have a child!!!



  5. 5

    OMG that is the best scary gold digger face i think ive seen you ever do love it



  6. 6

    Really sad - the man is terminally ill - why contribute to his pain.



  7. 7

    Perez, how much is Dennis Hopper paying you to smear his ex-wife? He is "desperately ill", but still can show up in public? His ex wife is such a crazy witch, yet he allows her to have their child without any complaints? He sounds like a real douchebag trying to weasel his way out of a divorce.



  8. 8

    The court did the right thing.



  9. 9

    "Maybe if you weren't trying to suck him dry of all his money, it'd be solved amicably."

    Hey maybe if he paid what he should have to begin with then she wouldnt have to fight him for it



  10. 10

    How can we tell it's fair? We can't. The judge decides what's fair based on what he sees. But she's been married to the guy for 15 years. She deserves a lot.



  11. 11

    Oh shut the fuck up Perez, I feel bad for Dennis Hopper, as cancer is a horrible, horrible disease, Dennis Hopper is known for being a major asshole. And last I heard his grown children were trying to get him to divorce her. And this asshole tried to live her(and the daught? idk) out of the will, thats why he wanted to divorce because he's a greedy asshole. Even when he's terminal ill.



  12. 12

    It is a shame that he is ill, but that doesnt mean that he should get a free pass on paying spousal and child suport if he has the financial means. Remember child support is for the child, not new cars, or partying, I am sure that no matter how big the divide between this couple he would not want the child to suffer because their marriage failed. We dont know what transgresions he may have committed during their marriage, or hers only what has now come to light via the media, and you have to wonder who planted the stories. Besides the judge made the decision based on financial statements presented from both sides.



  13. 13

    Re: topshelfmn
    So I guess not letting him get off without taking care of his child is contributing to his pain? Moron.



  14. 14

    I'm actually going to stop reading this site–my guilty pleasure–because this is out of control. You are falsely attacking Victoria–this is just shameful. I get that you are an entertainer and not a journalist, but seriously, this is just beyond cruel. She's a lovely, sweet, kind person.



  15. 15

    Personally, I think it's fair. So what if she'd been married to him for 15 years? I don't understand the mentality of Americans, particularly women… always trying to suck all the money out of husbands/ baby daddies.
    From everything I've heard about this woman (and I don't just mean on here), she's a golddigger, nothing more, nothing less.
    You can live on $12,000 a month, many people live on far less. I have no sympathy for women who go into a marriage with a rich man, and then freak out when they're getting divorced, because THEY ALLOWED THEMSELVES to become swept up in a lifestyle that isn't real. Nobody NEEDS designer clothes, or daily massages, or organic food prepared by the finest chefs. It would be nice, but, at the end of the day, many people have survived on much, much lower incomes, and I think American women, particularly the golddigging ones, need a good smack in the head. Fuck you greedy motherfuckers!



  16. 16

    I don't normally say anything bad about a fellow woman…….ah what the hell, i talk more shit about women then i do men, but she doesn't deserve a cent given that she is being a cruel cold hard bitch about it!!! How the fuck can she do this, if she didn't love him then she should at least think that he is the father of her child and that counts for something but nooo, while the man is dying and is to sick to even defend himself she is trying to take everything he has just so she isn't screwed over once he dies. Paying child support is fine, but make her her lazy ass get a job!!! The kid needs money, not you.



  17. 17

    They have a kid together, so yeah, he should pay up.



  18. 18

    It's fair in the sense that it's following precedent. But out of that 12k, only 4k/month is earmarked for the kid. And 8k/month is ALL FOR VICTORIA THE GOLD DIGGER. That's just for looking anorexic and pretty :) Because Vicky DOES NOTHING WITH HER TIME. NADA. Except buy expensive designer clothes. Which she won't be able to do anymore unless she finds another sugar daddy and/or gains a lot from the pre-nup. because 96k a year is NOT enough to buy the kind of clothes she likes to wear. LOL. Gold digger will have to live more modestly now. Plus she is hated by the Hollywood community. But I bet Vicki will find a new sugar daddy. She seems like the type.



  19. 19

    Re: tallchick – You could look at it another way. While he's dying and sick and can't take his $$ with him, he is wlling to financially abandon the mother of his child. Victoria has no skills…she's been freeloading for the past 15 years. Someone has to take care of this lazy cow. And it may as well be Dennis Hopper who encouraged her parasitic ways for 15 years. She's a pathetic gold digger but you can't just abandon someone financially who you have been married to for 15 years and who cannot support herself. Better Dennis Hopper take care of her than the system.



  20. 20

    What's wrong with you, perez? She is the wife and she has rights! The same rights that you want gays to get!!!!
    You can not get married, have kids and then decide that you want out of it for free… now, who is the evil here? The guy is so sick and I hope he gets better but, does he think he will take the money with him?



  21. 21

    it could always have been worse, she could have gotten everything!!!!!



  22. 22

    It's real simple - DONT GET MARRIED!!!



  23. 23

    Get all the money you can he was old u are young..Married women face it the nasty porn stars are out to get your husbnads for the money ..watch out!!!



  24. 24

    Tallchick, out of all of the people that made posts, you are the only one that really made a valid point. Personally i dont care if its the man or the woman that has to pay support, but geez, what the fuck… GET A FUCKING JOB!!! why is it necessary to have to suck the other one dry? The one paying has to live as well, why should they have to live in squalor so they can support someone that they are no longer married to? I am a divorced dad with full custody of my 2 kids. I get a fucking whopping $12.50 a week per child in child support, and believe it or not that had to be GARNISHED! Im not saying they should get nothing, but it should be a reasonable amount. Unless you marry rich again, you need to make adjustments in your lifestyle.



  25. 25

    I don't mean to sound insensitive but he is in the late stages of prostate cancer. He will die. He wont be taking the money with him.



  26. 26

    If the judge ordered Hopper to pay atty and accountant's fees, then there's a good chance he/she felt that Hopper was in the wrong in the suit and possibly hiding money. Just because he's famous and dying doesn't mean he wasn't trying to keep her from getting what is rightfully hers by CA community property law.

    The child should be able to live in a standard commensurate with what her father can provide. You can't cut off the mother without hurting the child.



  27. 27

    This wasn't some overnite Jesse James slut. This was a woman who was married to Dennis Hopper for 14 years! Now when he is dying all of a sudden his adult children from another marriage want her out and he has abruptly divorced her…why are you slamming her? What has she done? She is the mother of his small child.



  28. 28

    you don't know what evidence was presented in court. If the judge ruled in her favor im sure it was justified.



  29. 29

    Seems to me like he enjoyed banging his younger wife for years…and is now trying to cut her and his child out of inheriting his money now that he is dying. Unfortunate that he is so ill, but cancer doesn't make him a nice guy.



  30. 30

    regardless of his age, her skills, his health, etc., $12k a month is ridiculous! she could just get a job and work like the rest of us slobs do. $4k would be generous. $12k is just plain greed!



  31. 31

    Hopefully she'll put a few of those bucks to good use and buy a few sandwiches for lunch. I hope she feeds their child.



  32. 32

    eh $12,000 is a bit steep if you ask me. SHe should get a job and pay for some stuff for a change, also if that kid is getting that much to pay for shit a month then that is one very spoilt child. People need a reality check and need to realise that they dont need to spend money like that. I hope that $12,000 a month doesnt get spent on mommys hair.



  33. 33

    12,000 a month isn't sucking dennis hopper dry…..that's nothing for him…stinks he's ill but come on now perez ….



  34. 34

    Why is nobody getting married anymore? Women like these whores. She broke her vow: to be together in sickness & health. Shame on her, dancing on his grave like a crazed Salome.
    I am an immigrant from another country and no man will marry me. Sure, I am living a happily-married lifestyle, but NO MAN WILL MARRY because these pseudo-feminists have SHOT OURSELVES IN THE FOOT.
    F U very much money-grubbing whores or ruining what would be a perfectly legitimate path to citizenship for me.
    If I were her, I would be caring for him: bating him, driving him to medical appointments, making him very comfortable and peaceful. WTF is wrong with her? Stupid, spoiled American woman!!!



  35. 35

    I doubt it takes that much money per month to raise a child. The rest if probably going to be in her pocket. Don't be fooled! Seriously.



  36. 36

    Celebretirs don't marry for love. Everything is a contract. The lesson here is don't have children and get better lawyers.



  37. 37

    i don't agree with spousal support, but in YOUR posts about her, you FAILED to mention the child. YES, the child needs supporting. AFTER he dies, his will will be divided a certain way. I do not know the laws in CA. A divorced wife can be written out. Children over 18 in NY can be disinherited. BUT children under 18 in NY MUST be supported. YES, the child will get SSI, but if there is a will, she must be included. don't know if it is a 1/3 or a 1/2. HOPEFULLY, he has his lawyers writing up a trust already. and when he dies, his ex hasn't gotten everything already, cause SSI is not going to support the kid the way the wife expect herself to be supported. ($35k a month-don't we all wish we had someone giving us that much to live on, FOR DOING NOTHING???? That is over $1,ooo a day, tax free)



  38. 38

    If he's really bitter and knew he was going to die anyway, he could probably give away his money so she wouldn't get it, but that would not be fair to the child. What do these old guys expect anyway when they marry a woman so much younger than them? They get a gold digger, that's what…(Paul McCartney).



  39. 39

    In fairness to her, which you don't do, they have been married 14 years and have a child together. Maybe she is just trying to look out for her child's interests. Her child isn't any less his child than the older ones from his previous marriage. I certainly hope her older brothers and sisters aren't trying to beat their little sister out of her rightful inheritence.



  40. 40

    His grown kids were obviously behind a lot of the bullshit here…their dad is dying and they satnd to get more $ if she isn't in the picture…
    she was his wife for 15 years, AND the mother of his child.
    Fair is fair.
    Get a life Perez.



  41. 41

    whore got weay mucj more then she deserves , the money grubbing bitch !



  42. 42

    Wow, Satan does produce spawn, after all. Everyone taking her side: do you really need 12,000 a month to live and raise children? I know my sister doesn't, but she raises her children quite well. I don't care what he's done or not done, this man is ill and should be treated with compassion. Get Well, Dennis.



  43. 43

    Why are you putting horns on her and saying negative things about her? Your basing this on what? Personal or common knowledge? All this time has gone by and now he wants a divorce and she is this horrible person. Yet, as someone commented she is fit to raise his young child. As for the spousal and child support he should probably be paying more. He intoduced her to a lifestyle and kept her in it. Sounds like who needs the horns are his kids who are probably engineering the whole thing. I am certain Mr. Hopper is a fine upstanding gentleman who has done nothing but be the personification of all that's good through ALL of his marriages. He just has lousy taste in women!



  44. 44

    Alright they were married for 15 years with a child. He gets sick and all of a sudden they are having problems. Yes, that's a fair amount for the wife and child. But, no one heard anything when he was doing fine health wise. Stay strong Dennis always loved your movies Easy Rider.



  45. 45

    this bitch has some very ugly karma coming her way.



  46. 46

    the kid deserves money. he did it, now he's gotta pay to help raise it



  47. 47
