We’re convinced that Hollyweird is no place to raise kids! Acclaimed actor Dennis Hopper’s name is now being sullied by his 21-year-old son Henry, who is accused of using drugs and alcohol to rape a 15-year-old girl!
According to TMZ reports:
Dennis Hopper’s 21-year-old son has been accused of raping a 15-year-old girl … after plying her with drugs and alcohol … this according to a lawsuit obtained by TMZ.
Henry Hopper — who starred in Gus Van Zant’s “Restless” in 2011 — is being sued by the mother of an unidentified 16-year-old girl … who claims the girl met Hopper through a mutual friend in Feb. 2011.
According to the legal papers, the girl — identified in the lawsuit as Jan Doe — claims the two began to communicate on Facebook … and in the months that followed, Hopper invited her to his home in Venice, CA on multiple occasions with the promise of drugs and alcohol.
In the suit, Doe claims Hopper would wait until she was intoxicated … and “engaged in sexually offensive conduct with her” … including sexual intercourse, forced oral copulation and sodomy.
It’s unclear if Doe ever reported the allegations to police.
In the suit, Doe’s lawyer claims the actor “preyed upon a young impressionable child, suggesting that he cared for her, luring her into his home with promises of alcohol and illegal drugs, and then repeatedly taking advantage of her youth an vulnerability.”
Doe’s mother claims the girl suffered significant injuries to her emotional health, strength and activity … and was required to employ multiple mental health care professionals for treatment.
She’s suing for unspecified damages.
Attempts to reach Hopper were unsuccessful.
Dennis Hopper is one of our favorite actors, but that’s no excuse for his son to be acting up. Hopefully the whole truth will come out soon enough.
