Before his death in 2010, Dennis Hopper filed for divorce from his wife Victoria Hopper, but the divorce was never finalized. This set in motion a lawsuit filed by Hopper’s daughter Marin and the Denis Hopper Trust against Victoria, and let’s just say there’s certainly no love lost between the two parties.
Fast forward to today, when we learn just what may have been the cause behind the divorce filing…
According to court documents obtained by RadarOnline, Victoria Hopper was having an affair with James Cannon Boyce prior to Dennis’ death. Victoria says it was a time when she was “married and residing [with Dennis].”
The lawsuit against Victoria claims that she stole artwork that the estate is legally entitled to, but Victoria has since filed a lawsuit of her own against Marin and the trust.
For the record, Dennis and Victoria have one child together: Galen, who is 10.
Of course, with the adultery revelation, things are about to heat up even more between the two parties. It seems Marin’s lawyers have attempted to subpoena Boyce, but Victoria is trying to keep that from happenin’.
A hearing has been set for July 12, 2011 to determine whether or not Boyce will have to give that deposition. Stay tuned…
