Dennis Hopper’s wife is killing him

Either Dennis Hopper is insane or his wife really is speeding up his demise. Hopper is suffering from advanced prostate cancer, but in recent photos he doesn’t look too bad. Only slightly old and frail. Anyway, Hopper told his wife of 14 years Victoria Duffy-Hopper to GTFO supposedly on his “death bed”. Dennis’ lawyer says Victoria has “repeatedly subjected [him] to severe emotional distress.”

Dennis even got a doctor’s note that read: “The presence of his estranged wife is hampering Mr. Hopper’s present cancer care… It is my belief and recommendation that the less Mr. Hopper has to do with his estranged wife at this time, the more likely he is to have his life extended.”

Victoria claims Hopper’s kids are whispering in his ear to cut her out of the will. Under the prenup, she only receives 25% of his estate if they divorce.

In Dennis’ declaration, he says Victoria’s mother “…told me in November of 2009 that I should simply 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 last December, Victoria and her mother woke him up in the middle of the night and grilled him about how much money and property Victoria would get when Dennis died.

As for Victoria’s claims that Dennis smoked medical marijuana in front of their young girl, he says he has never smoked 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 agree to not smoke pot within one hour of visitation.

This whole divorcing your wife so close to your death seems weird. Like it’s a big practical joke. Although Victoria does sound overly concerned with the monies. This is what I’ll do when I’m old and rich. I’ll marry someone young and if I find out they’re only in this to weasel their way into my will, I’ll string them along until right before my death where I divorce them and tell them there’s no way they’re getting their filthy hands on my pog collection.

Update: Dennis Hopper was granted a restraining order against his wife.
