About Dennis Hopper

Dennis Lee Hopper (born May 17, 1936; death: May 29, 2010) is an American actor, filmmaker and artist, with a career that spanned half of the 20th century.

Personal Biography

Wife Victoria

In January 2010, he filed for divorce from his fifth wife Victoria Duffy and cited irreconcilable differences as the reason. In January 2010, his cancer worsened and many believed he is living the final days of his life. The divorce from her has not only left him cash-strapped, but its also taking a toll on his health. In April 2010, Hopper's personal assistant has alleged that his ex-wife tried killing the actor.

Hoppers first wife claimed that his fifth wife had made him suffer in the days before his death. Hopper's wife has plans of fighting for a share of his estate in court even though he had tried desperately to divorce her before he died.

Dennis and Victoria had a daughter.
