Hopper Divorce Case Drama

In a new bout of drama that is the last thing such a great man (or his family) needs at this stage of his life, Dennis Hopper's divorce case continues with a ruling by the judge that Hopper's estranged wife and daughter can keep living on his property as the contentious case plays out.

The legendary actor Hopper is in the final stages of a long battle with cancer, and as he fades away he's become caught up in another battle with his wife, whom he wants to divorce. The two have been married for over 13 years.

The wife has been living at Hopper's compound in Venice California, but Hopper and his divorce attorneys were hoping to force her out, apparently. Not taking sides or judging who s right or wrong, but it's just a shame the family has to be in such turmoil at this point in their lives.

Dennis Hopper's estranged wife and daughter can live on his property while the couple resolve their bitter divorce case and the actor fights prostate cancer, a judge ruled Monday. Superior Court Judge Amy Pellman also ordered the actor to pay $12,000 a month in spousal and child support. Hopper, 73, did not attend the hearing but was repeatedly described by his attorney as "desperately ill." Hopper's three adult children from previous marriages attended but did not speak. Pellman sternly told both sides they needed to come together during what appeared to be Hopper's final days.
