Henry Hopper, Son of Dennis Hopper, Accused of Rape
The son of actor Dennis Hopper, Henry Hopper, has been accused of raping a 15-year-old girl. The accuser is the mother of the teenage girl. She says that Henry Hopper gave her daughter alcohol and drugs and then took advantage of her. Henry Hopper is 21 and he allegedly started a relationship with the girl on Facebook after the two met in February of 2011 because of a mutual friend. Henry Hopper then allegedly invited the young girl to his home in Venice, California.
A lawsuit has been filed against Henry Hopper and it claims that the girl, who is identified as Jan Doe in the documents, went to Henry’s house on multiple times. When she visited the home she said she was given alcohol before the two took part in “sexually offensive conduct,” which also included “sexual intercourse, forced oral copulation and sodomy.”
It is not clear if any of the accusations against Henry Hopper have been reported to the police. The mother of the girl has said that her daughter has suffered “injuries to her emotional health, strength and activity.”
Henry Hopper is due to star in the upcoming film named ‘Tar’ with Mila Kunis, James Franco and Jessica Chastain. He was a star in the 2011 movie known as ‘Restless.’Henry Hopper, Son of Dennis Hopper, Accused of Rape by Jim Vassallo
