This is sad.
Dennis Hopper's estranged widow, Victoria Hopper, has filed a lawsuit against his daughter from a previous marriage, Marin, and the Dennis Hopper Trust.
She alleges that the Dennis Hopper Trust was ordered to pay her and her lawyers $150,000 in legal fees in the bitter divorce battle they were fighting at the time of Dennis' death in May 2010.
She claims that she has not received a single payment from his trust. And on top of that, she says that a child support check in the amount of $12,000 that was sent to her for their daughter Galen, bounced.
The court documents reveal that she requests $1 million from the Trust to "ensure that the funds will be available" until Galen reaches the age of 19.
She's also seeking "damages" of $50,000 a year in lost income, in which she says, "because decedent blocked Plaintiff from obtaining employment, and he never provided or allowed Plaintiff to develop any economic opportunity herself, Plaintiff was unable to seek employment, and Decedent breached his obligation to put her into a business."
She may have a valid claim on the child support, but the "lost income" allegations sound like bullshiz to us.
