Dennis Hopper - Dennis Hopper's daughter inherits almost three million dollars

Dennis Hopper's nine-year-old daughter has inherited almost three million dollars.

The actor was in the middle of an acrimonious divorce from his wife Victoria Duffy when he died in 2010 and although a pre-nuptial agreement ensures she received nothing in his will, their daughter Galen was left $2.85 million in cash along with $600,000 worth of property, according to gossip website TMZ.

The assets have been placed in a trust for the youngster and Victoria will have no control over it, as per Dennis' instructions.

Galen missed her dad's funeral after her mother stopped her from attending.

A source said at the time: ''That's the thing that's just tragic. A seven-year-old girl has just lost her father, and she can't even go to his funeral.''

Victoria claimed Galen was ''disinvited'' from the service, while Dennis' friends insisted she used her own daughter ''as a pawn'' in her battle with her husband's family.

According to a letter from the actor's lawyer, Dennis did not want Victoria to attend the funeral in Taos, New Mexico, but wanted Galen there.

However, Victoria reportedly insisted Galen wouldn't be allowed to go without being accompanied by her because she would have had to have flown from Los Angeles on her own.

In the run-up to his death, Dennis, 74, and Victoria were embroiled in a bitter divorce battle, with Victoria alleging the actor's adult children from previous marriages had turned him against her and wanted her to be cut from his will.

The legal battle became so acrimonious Dennis applied for a court order to keep his spouse at least 10ft away from him to eliminate unnecessary stress.

Dennis was married five times during his lifetime and had three other children, daughters Marin and Ruthanna and son Henry Lee.
