Ailing Dennis Hopper Ordered To Pay Estranged Wife Spousal Support

Ailing film legend Dennis Hopper, who is dying from cancer, was ordered to pay his estranged wife and their seven -year-old daughter Galen $12,000 in monthly spousal and child support by a Los Angeles judge Monday. Hopper filed for divorce in January after 14 years of marriage. The Easy Rider and Blue Velvet actor’s attorney Joseph Mannis said in court documents last month that Hopper’s prostate cancer was terminal.

Hopper, 73, did not attend yesterday’s hearing but was repeatedly described by his attorney as “desperately ill.”

Hopper’s adult children attended but did not speak.
