Battle in High Gear Over Dennis Hopper Estate

6/16/2010 7:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A dogfight is shaping up over Dennis Hopper's estate ... and an unintended victim could be his 7-year-old daughter Galen.

We've learned lawyers for Victoria Hopper and Dennis' estate met last Friday to try and hash out an agreement -- to no avail.  We're told the people in control of the estate -- the trustees -- want to kick Victoria and Galen off of Dennis' property immediately, but Victoria refuses to go.

As for dividing up the spoils of the estate, we've learned Dennis Hopper drafted an amendment to his estate plan back in March, in which he effectively tried to cut down Galen's share from 40% to 25%.  Under California law, however, the amendment may not be valid, because changes to an estate plan are severely restricted when a divorce is pending.

And we've learned the lawyers have already drawn the battle lines over Victoria's cut in the estate -- she believes she's entitled to 25% ... the estate believes she should get zippo.

Okay, I think Victoria is a biotch and should not get anything, however, why deny his own daughter? That is truly ****ed up.

They weren't divorced, she still live on the same property as he did, she was married to him way longer than anyone else AND she has to care for the only one of his children who is still a minor, so she is entitled to a portion of his estate. Hopefully, all the adults in the family can find a way to resolve this in a manner that will have the least negative impact possible on this little girl.



Interesting that a previous poster noted that Victoria and her daughter visited Dennis' mother in the nursing home she lived in, but he did not. I wonder if any of his other children did?

WHATEVER    

SHE WAS WITH DENNIS 14 YEARS. THEY HAVE A DAUGHTER. SHE WAS HIS LEGAL PARTNER AND WIFE. SHE WAS NOT THE "HIRED HELP
" THAT HE COULD JUST FIRE. SHE WAS NOT SOME PEON, SHE WAS HIS WIFE. DENNIS WAS AN ********. YOU DON'T TREAT THE MOTHER OF YOUR KIDS LIKE THAT. IF YOU LOVE YOUR KIDS, YOU DON'T MISTREAT THEIR MOTHER, EVEN IF YOU DO DIVORCE. DENNIS WAS A JERK-OFF.

I don't know why TMZ feels they have to shape opinion on this matter. Unkind pics of Victoria aside, she gave him a daughter and had to deal with him losing his mind as he died. Let this woman move on and let Dennis RIP.

God, what an ugly puss of an obvious gold-digger she is. No wonder he wanted out.

He clearly was not in his right mind since the first of this year AND his adult daughter certainly capitalized on that! Get rid of the wife and the tiny daughter and the adult daughter knew she'd get it all. Don't any of you see her plan here? sheesh

A 7 year old loses her father and then gets to find out he didn't leave her ****. IMO the daughter should get everything. I can't imagine a 7 year old girl did anything deserving of not getting left an equal amount as other children.

That stupid bitch helped put Dennis in the grave, by insiting on draging the divorce crap out while he was very sick. She needs to rot. Looks like a gold digging whore anyway.

Ewww she looks like an ugly version of Erin Andrews. One poster had it right when they asked if that was a smile or snarl?

I blame her for being a money grabbing slut and I blame the super old, now dead dude for wanting a hot piece of ass. Conclusion: It's both their fault and now some kid gets to deal with the freak of a mom and lose her old dude of a dad. Let's hope the money goes into a trust for the kid. I'm sure she'll need it for rehab when she's older.

Dennis Hopper was married to Victoria for 14 years, more than twice as long as to his other four wives. None of us know if all the stories are true but she and their daughter are certainly entitled to as much as anyone else including any adult children.



Btw, it cannot have been easy living with an alcoholic and a very violent man who was once arrested for attacking one of his former wives.
