Dennis Hopper's Son

Accused of Raping

15-Year-Old Girl

7/31/2012 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Show me the proof!!! I will assume there are facebook messages between them where he says he's got the drugs and alcohol if she wants to come over and party and since she went over to party, I don't think they have a rape case. They might be able to get him on contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and to do that, there better not be any other men/boys she's partied with that will testify to her behavior.

The Mom of Jan Doe sounds like she a money grabber of her daughter goes to his home multiple times for drugs it is not rape!!! She wanted sex and drugs from him. At an early age she uses drugs she has the problem! Whore!

I have a few thoughts.
1) First and foremost the child is a victim. It doesn't matter if she is the most promiscuous little thing out there and she tied him down and forced herself on him. Even if she did consent, legally a child can't consent at 15, so it is up to the fvcker to know that the fvckee is a juvenile and keep the hell out of such compromising situations.
2) Poor mama has to sue. Mama should be sued by the county or state for neglect and child endangerment with these charges because if her 15 year old child is getting drunk, stoned, and screwed and she has no clue she pretty much handed her kid over to him.
If he can be prosecuted so can the mother. I'm thinking mama offered her daughter up for a payday.

If the alegations are true thats horrible and he should get convicted but seriously she went over there because she was promised drugs and alcohol at the age of 15. She's an idiot for going over there, what did she honestly think a 21 year old man wants from any girl other than sex. Even if the alligations are true i have a hard time feeling that sorry for her when she get over there to get high and drunk and kept going.

I don't see the following scenario in the comments:

Henry and Jan Doe were boyfriend/girlfriend. They dated. They partied. They had sex. They just assumed it was a normal relationship.

What happened after that, who knows? Maybe he broke up with her, and she wanted revenge.

I had a 21-year-old relative who dated a girl for six months before he found out she was 16. She hung out with older friends, and he just assumed she was older. In fact, he thought she was older than him! Most people don't ask to see id before they start dating someone (she had a fake id, anyway, so that wouldn't have worked).

He's a weirdo just like his dad. Wasn't Dennis Hopper married to Michelle Phillips for something like three days back in the '60...'s? He must have been a real freak for her to bail after three days.

The sins of the father is revisited on the son or like father like son. It is a shame this is how he starts out his life.

I would only buy this watery tall tale if the incident happened ONCE...but over and over and over again, then SUDDENLY it's assault? Sounds like the girl was DENIED the weiner so she made up a lie to mommy.
