Hayward Blasts Hopper's Wife Over Divorce Battle

DENNIS HOPPER's first wife BROOKE HAYWARD is furious with the Hollywood legend's estranged spouse VICTORIA DUFFY for increasing his "suffering" during the weeks before his death.
The Easy Rider star passed away at his home in Venice, California on Saturday (29May10) after a long struggle with prostate cancer.
He had been locked in a bitter legal battle with fifth wife Duffy since filing divorce papers earlier this year (10), shortly after he went public with his cancer diagnosis.
Now Hayward, who was married to the actor for eight years from 1961, has slammed Duffy for blighting Hopper's final months with "nasty accusations".
She tells British newspaper The Sun, "Dennis was in so much pain because of all the fighting he was going through with Victoria. It's horrible the way he died, but even worse when you think what she put him through. He was suffering so much, but then he had to deal with all these nasty accusations from her."
