Dennis Hopper's Son

Accused of Raping

15-Year-Old Girl

EXCLUSIVE

Henry Hopper accused of rape.Dennis Hopper's 21-year-old son has been accused of raping a 15-year-old girl ... after plying her with drugs and alcohol ... this according to a lawsuit obtained by TMZ.

Henry Hopper -- who starred in Gus Van Zant's "Restless" in 2011 -- is being sued by the mother of an unidentified 16-year-old girl ... who claims the girl met Hopper through a mutual friend in Feb. 2011.

According to the legal papers, the girl -- identified in the lawsuit as Jan Doe -- claims the two began to communicate on Facebook ... and in the months that followed, Hopper invited her to his home in Venice, CA on multiple occasions with the promise of drugs and alcohol.

In the suit, Doe claims Hopper would wait until she was intoxicated ... and "engaged in sexually offensive conduct with her" ... including sexual intercourse, forced oral copulation and sodomy.

It's unclear if Doe ever reported the allegations to police.

In the suit, Doe's lawyer claims the actor "preyed upon a young impressionable child, suggesting that he cared for her, luring her into his home with promises of alcohol and illegal drugs, and then repeatedly taking advantage of her youth an vulnerability."

Doe's mother claims the girl suffered significant injuries to her emotional health, strength and activity ... and was required to employ multiple mental health care professionals for treatment.

She's suing for unspecified damages.

Attempts to reach Hopper were unsuccessful.

It was shudder worthy, her parents must be thouroughly ashamed. UGH as in yuck
And no, I have no reason to be jealous of, she was crass and iky and sounded like a floosy. Perhaps you should screen your guest commentators.

it wasn't rape, he probably didn't even touch her. The mother and daughter are in cahoots looking for a money grab. Jesus Murphy people, believe none of what you read or see twisted on TV...how about you try to grow a brain and come back to the land of reality and of the living. What a f'n mess the world is and without much future with the the up and coming generations. Mother earth weeps!!!

Ok, this is completely disgusting...but it is CRIMINAL...not CIVIL. Send him to jail for the rest of his life, but going after money...that only shows you really don't care what he did to your daughter...you just want money. Now, --just like in the OJ case-- if you cannot get a conviction, THEN you may consider a CIVIL case.

The statement isn't supposed to be funny but saying a young, impressionable child was sexually taken advantage of because this guy lured her to his house with the promise of alcohol and illicit drugs seems sort of strange to me. I do NOT blame this girl but her mother should have been watching what was her daughter was doing on Facebook and where her daughter was going. And she kept going back.... Maybe statutory rape is more appropriate in this case. He's still a sicko for preying on 15 year olds though.

She's suing?? LOL. Good luck with that. If you don't call the cops and press charges over something like rape of a minor but you decide to sue the guy instead then that pretty much says everything. The woman is obviously looking for a pay day.
What the f*** is up with our society now? Everybody has just become lazy sue crazy idiots. Look at all the people suing the theater and WB over the theater shooting last week. Such losery human beings trying to get pay days for everything now.
