Hopper's Widow Files $45 Million Creditor's Claim

DENNIS HOPPER's widow VICTORIA DUFFY has filed a $45 million (£30 million) creditor's claim against 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 is said to have drawn up a new will in January (10) which included only his children and grandchildren - but Duffy has filed legal papers in a bid to land a payment from the estate.
In the documents, obtained by TMZ.com, Duffy asks 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.
Hopper's fifth wife is claiming a loss of earnings totalling $2.26 million (£1.5 million) while she was married to the star - and she also wants $10 million (£6.7 million) for alleged defamation during the pair's bitter divorce battle.
Earlier this year (10) Hopper's attorney Joe Manis warned Duffy, "We are ready for war" over her plea for a financial settlement.
