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.

If these women are gold diggers, they should also have their own prenups, like $50,000 for every BJ that ugly SOB requested or $500,000 every time that SOB was on top of you. It goes both ways. No one knows if his intentions was to marry her just for the sex or if her intentions was to marry him for his money. That's why there should never be a one-sided prenup.

I don't care what they say. The man was an icon. He should have made fortunes 100 times over to leave to his family. My god, people.....the man worked with James Dean for Christ's sake.

Will that money collect interest while she waits till she's old enough to receive it? ANd the property will be worth more when she comes of age im sure.

It doesn't say anywhere that the trust is only for when the child turns 18. He could have it setup for her to use as of right now with the proper parties taking care of it so that it's for the childs needs and not her mothers. It would be distributed as she needed it.

Good for you, Dennis. Wifey married you for the money and status. Got to spend a ton of it for 13 years. Enough. Now your daughter will be protected and taken care of. Sincerely doubt she will want to share with "mommie dearest" when she tries to get a chunk of change from her next.

when you sign the prenup (no arm twisting involved) you also stipulate other arrangements--money, house, cars, etc. that are guaranteed. Trust me, she didn't give away the "in case of death" money without some up-front pay.

I don't understand why 2 people would decide to get married if she has to sign a prenup giving her nothing and he has to make her sign it. WHY??? That isn't a marriage. Why not just get an agreement in writing and live together. If you can't share your assets with a wife of 13 years you should never have married her. It makes me so sad to see people calling her a gold digger and greedy bitch. He wasn't all that rich! I would never sign a pre nup giving me nothing. How can you build a life together under those cir***stances? Don't marry a woman if she is so clearly worthless to you!
