Extremely ill, veteran Hollywood actor Dennis Hopper’s soon-to-be ex-wife tried to kill him, claims the personal assistant of the actor.
Emily Davis, the "Easy Rider" director and actor's assistant, alleges in a new declaration that Victoria, his wife of almost 14 years, plotted to kill the ailing Hollywood star.
The cancer-stricken legend is currently locked in a bitter divorce battle with his fifth wife Victoria Duffy-Hopper. The 73-year-old actor/director and artist filed divorce papers in January to end his nearly 14-year marriage to Victoria, with whom he has a 7-year-old daughter, Galen Grier.
Hopper is currently suffering from terminal prostate cancer and has become extremely ill from his battle with the disease. He looked extremely frail when he was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Hollywood on March 26, 2010.
As the nasty divorce dispute rages on between a frail, terminally ill Hopper and his 42-year-old wife Victoria, the actor's assistant Emily Davis has come forward with a shocking claim against the Oscar-nominated actor’s wife, saying that Victoria, who wants a stake in her soon-to-be-ex hubby’s inheritance, plotted to take Hopper's life.
Emily made the horrifying allegations against the star’s wife in a divorce document filed to Los Angeles courts Thursday.
According to popular gossip Website TMZ, Hopper's eldest daughter Marin, from his former marriage to actress Brooke Hayward, also lashed out at Victoria in new legal papers.
In the papers, reportedly obtained by eonline.com and TMZ.com, Emily claims she and the Hopper household were “at the mercy of [wife Victoria Hopper's] cruelty” when Hopper had to be taken to the hospital last December for his prostate cancer treatment. She also alleges Victoria "was trying to kill him", although she did not specify which method she used.
In the papers, Emily describes Hopper’s wife as “a threat to all in the home and has already looted millions of [dollars in] property that is not hers.”
