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'm a girl and I was 15 once. I have a feeling she agreed with it all. Then, when her mom found out, she regretted what she did and said it was rape. Of course she is gullible and young so he took advantage of her so it makes him an a...hole. But suing him? it's for money and attention.

Bull****. Henry is the sweetest, gentlest guy, well known around Venice. He's quiet, polite, inoffensive and highly intelligent. I've hung out with the guy numerous times and I know he'd never do anything like this. This girl is out for a big cash settlement. Disgusting to try and ruin someone's life like this, especially after his recovering from the traumatic death of his father. I'm a strong advocate for women's rights and I think rape victims are treated appallingly in this country. However, I don't believe this woman is a rape victim. She's someone who wants to f*** up a well known person's life for financial gain. How sad and cruel. I don't understand how this person can live with themselves.

So now mom wants to get paid for the services her daughter rendered? It wasn't just one time that her daughter was drugged to have sex. Clearly, they were bang buddies.
