Dennis Hopper

9-Year-Old Daughter

Inherits $3 Mil

9/17/2012 5:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0917_dennis-hopper_tmzDennis Hopper's 9-year-old daughter inherited $2.85 million from her dad's estate ... despite the fact her parents were entangled in a nasty divorce battle at the time of his death.

If you recall ... Hopper's estranged wife Victoria Duffy fought tooth and nail for a stake in her late husband's estate ... but ultimately came up dry.

Now, according to legal docs obtained by TMZ ... Dennis made sure their 9-year-old daughter will be taken care of ... leaving her $2.25 million in cash plus $600,000 worth of property ... all of which has been placed in a trust.

In the court docs, Hopper's people make it clear ... Victoria, who was married to Hopper for 13 years but received zilch thanks to an iron-clad pre nup -- shall have NO control whatsoever over the money in her daughter's trust.

If you recall ... Hopper died in 2010, before his acrimonious divorce with Victoria could be finalized.

i dont know how i feel about the wife getting nothing in the way of support for the daughter...why isnt his estate responsible for child support in the divorce since the child is only 9? some sum should be given to that....this is my opinion if the trust is not available until the child is an adult.

They were married for 13 years, I don't think "gold digging whore" applies. She did deserve something from the marriage but not anywhere near half of what he was worth. I'm glad he planned ahead for his daughter.

That's a lot of money. If I won $10 million dollars, I would keep $9 million for myself and then give $1 to 1 million different people AROUND THE WORLD. Yea, thanks everyone.

Happy to hear that his wishes were met. He made sure he hung around to make sure that this woman didn't see a dime of his money.

Why pre-nups are vital if you're rich, old, and your artwork is worth a mint. Marrying as many times as DH did, you probably learned not to think with your d*ck, which got you in trouble in the first place.
