Dennis Hopper - Hopper's Ex-wife Has $45 Million Claim Rejected

DENNIS HOPPER's widow VICTORIA DUFFY has failed in her bid to win a $45 million (£30 million) pay out from the late actor's estate.
The Hollywood legend passed away in May (10) after losing his battle with prostate cancer, and was embroiled in a bitter divorce battle with Duffy at the time of his death.
Hopper changed his will in January (10) to hand his money only to his children and grandchildren, leading Duffy to file legal papers in October (10) in the hope of landing a payment from the estate.
In the creditor's claim, she asked for money to help her raise the pair's seven-year-old daughter Galen, thousands of dollars in lawyers' fees and a cut of the property owned by the Easy Rider legend. She also demanded $10 million (£6.7 million) for alleged defamation during the pair's bitter divorce battle.
Administrators rejected the claim earlier this month (Dec10), according to TMZ.com. However, estate officials insist Galen will be provided for in Hopper's will.
