Dennis Hopper

I'm Sick, I'm Broke

3/23/2010 7:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dennis Hopper is extremely ill from his battle with cancer -- he weighs a little over 100 pounds and is nearly broke, according to new court documents obtained by TMZ.


The docs, filed by celebrity attorney Joe Mannis in Hopper's mega-divorce case, paints a grim picture of Hopper's life. One of his doctors submitted a declaration, stating, "It is doubtful that Mr. Hopper will ever recover sufficiently to be subject to a deposition."

Hopper says in the legal docs he is willing to pay estranged wife Victoria $5,000 a month in spousal support, and that's all he can afford. Hopper's CPA says Dennis' liquid assets total $300,280 ... plus another $10,900 in Hopper's corporations.

The CPA says in recent years, "Hopper has basically lived on income derived from new acting services." Because of his cancer, Hopper can't work, and in 2009 he earned $57,000 in residuals. Mannis says that's what Hopper will pull in this year as well.

Victoria has alleged Dennis is loaded because of art he has created and sold. Dennis counters in legal docs that in the last 9 years he's sold art to the tune of $1,895,000, but his expenses to create and store the art totaled $1,850,000 -- so he's saying the net profit for 9 years is a measly $45,000.

According to the docs, Dennis has been living off a $450,000 line of credit, but there is "no further borrowing possible."

Victoria is picking Hopper's carcass before he's even buried...she's a "gold digger" with no scruples. It sounds like Dennis is on his last legs; couldn't she wait until he's dead before beginning going after whatever money he has left?

It's hard to believe his ex could be that cruel... unless he's hiding something and attempting to play up his illness to get sympathy from the judge. This would also explain why she's so furious and unrelenting. Or maybe she is really, truly heartless. Who really knows. Divorces are just... sad.

This man is far from broke! His adult children have destroyed his marriage and are probably going in for the kill on the money as well. I'm sorry for his illness and obvious discomfort but throw your daughter and others OUT. She's a vulture. Poor wife. They have distorted this baby to the hilt.

Okay, wait a second. The math doesn't add up. Dennis Hopper says he can afford to pay her $5k a month in support, which means $60k a year. How is this possible if he only makes $57k a year?!

That's some mighty expensive art if it costs $1,850,000 just to create it.

The family is jockeying position to take the dough from the wife. I'd say they are all parasites. Sad.

Let's hope the hag of an ex-wife is soon out living on the streets and wishing she had been nicer to her ex-spouse. What a B****.

Divorces are always sad. I can't imagine dying and going through a divorce. Poor Mr. Dennis. I am sending good thoughts and prayers his way.

That gold-digging b!tch with the big mouth should try working for her money and not trying to get every last penny from a man who is having serious health and financial difficulties. She is an embarrassment to all women.

This is just sad! How could anyone who once loved another person try to milk them dry in their last days? I'd tell her to get p*ssed if it were me and not even offer what he's offering (but then again, I am a dame).
I've always loved Dennis Hopper...he's brilliant. Hope his final days won't be for not...
