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.

Sounds a little bit to me that he played her and she couldn't handle it. He's older and of course since she's youngs she's gullible- this stuff happens all the time to non-celebs. If this is all true the mother should've had him arrested for statutory rape to begin with instead of waiting and just suing him.

If she was raped then why keep going back to the rapist

Usually in these cases we take the "childs" side.. but 16 year olds today, aren't exactly built and shaped like they "use" to be.. and to be quite truthful about this story, we only know what they want us to know about this case, since none of us were actually there... I'm not taking Henry's side, but she doesn't seem all too innocent.

Oral copulation is sodomy. So you don't really need to say "including sodomy, and sodomy." Just FYI.

So how many times did mother and daughter allow this to happen BEFORE it became a PROBLEM?

What was a 15yr old girl doing in a man's house? Why was she going back? I think she liked it and decided to sue because he didn't give her enough money.

RAPE.. A little harsh here for someone that keeps going back for more. I certainly don't agree with this but some 15 yrs. old nowdays have a lot more sexual experience than I do (and believe me I am a lot older). The little weisel needs to be accountable for his actions, but the girl does as well or at least her Mother for lack of parenting..

If mom is suing him for her mental harm - who is suing mom for allowing her daughter to be drugged up at such a young age and around this 21 year old man?

The mother is charging but why are you letting your 16 year old daughter mingle with grown men?

There is no reason that a 25 yo is hunting down a 15 yo, but not all these 15 yo are as innocent as they lead on. We will have to hear both side.

After doing the underage daughter the mother probably tried to get a little from the pipsqueak and when he rejected her she took her revenge.

I sure as **** hope none of these commenters gets raped and then called a liar...

Why does everyone assume the mom knew, and the girl didn't sneak out? Anyway...

Firstly, let it be known that often times a rape victim goes back to their attacker- sometimes even marrying him- in an effort to "legitimize" the act, and make herself feel like it didn't happen that way. Basically, these victims get so emotionally f*****d up, that they are in denial about what happened and want to pretend they're not victims.

Secondly- HELLO, SHE WAS ONLY 15. 15- year-olds CANNOT fully comprehend sex, the emotions surrounding it, etc etc. So, even if she "consented," it doesn't count bc she's not old enough to legally. That's like saying a 1-year-old consented to having her ears pierced.

(Assuming allegations are true) THIS WAS INDEED RAPE. And the more you belittle it, the more likely you are making it that loved one or even YOURSELF will be a victim of it, too. Men don't only rape women, you know... Stand up against rapists instead of making excuses for them and blaming the victim. You wouldn't want this to happen to your daughter, would you?
