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.

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.

I don't believe it for a second! If it were true he would have been charged with rape not getting SUED. It is just someone trying to make money!

Of course she needs the help of mental health proffesionals, why would she keep going back if she didn't enjoy it. Typical crack whore willing to anything for drugs, screw her (no pun intended) she is just looking for a payday. At 16 she knew what she was doing and nobody forced her.

She should of reported it when it happened. Now the mom wants $$$$. I hope there is proof like texts, fb messages ect. If they do exist and it rape did happen they I hope they put him away in jail. If it is fabericated then i hope the law punishes the mom for false claims and the hoppers sue the familyfor damages :(
