Dennis Hopper, 74, dead; divorce from 5th wife Victoria Duffy caput

The actor whom Jane Fonda allegedly described as “the little fascist freak” and who was married to and later divorced from the Mamas and the Papas‘ Michelle Phillips, has died. Actor Dennis hopper succumbed to prostate cancer today. He was, according to Associated Press reports, surrounded by friends and family. No word, however, if his fifth wife Victoria, from whom he was in the midst of a bitter divorce battle, was present. Victoria and Dennis’  wife daughter Marin did not see eye to eye and were having enormous fights stemming fromthe divorce.  People Magazine claims that Dennis filed  for divorce from Vicky due to her “uncontrolled spending.”
It’s not as if Dennis was perfect. According to People, Dennis was “committed to a Los Angeles psychiatric ward after suffering psychotic hallucinations from cocaine and alcohol.” No word if his addictions impacted his marriage to Victoria or wether he was clean during the marriage. But suffice to say that Victoria is persona non grata with the Hopper clan and now that he is dead, one can only wait with baited breath to see how the financial aspects of this passing plays out.
In the interim, rest in peace, Mr. Hopper.
