Dennis Hopper’s Daughter Is Now Rich. Very, Very Rich


Dennis Hopper Victoria Duffy

Dennis Hopper’s daughter may only be 9-years-old, but she’s just become a multi-millionaire thanks to her famous father’s lucrative estate. The Oscar-nominated star and his estranged wife Victoria Duffy were entangled in a nasty divorce battle at the time of his death – and she later fought for a stake in his estate – though ultimately came up dry.


According to legal documents obtained by TMZ.com, Hopper – star of the 1969 classic ‘Easy Rider – made sure his daughter Galen received $2.25 million in cash plus $600,000 worth of property, all of which is being placed into a trust. In the documents, Hopper’s legal team make it pretty clear that Victoria – whom he was married to for 13 years – receives absolutely nothing, thanks to a pre-nuptial agreement. She will also have zero control over the money in her daughter’s trust. According to the Daily Mail, Galen missed her father’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.” A letter from the actor’s lawyer suggested Hopper did not want Victoria to attend the ceremony in New Mexico, though made it clear that Galen should be there.


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