Dennis Hopper’s Son Accused of Raping 15-year-old Girl

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (KTLA) — Henry Hopper, the son of the late movie star, Dennis Hopper, is facing allegations of rape.

The alleged victim and her mom came forward with their side of the story at a news conference in Beverly Hills on Monday.

Standing behind a white screen, the now 17 year old alleged victim of rape — known as Jane Doe — shared details of what happened to her two years ago when she says Henry Hopper raped her.

According to Jane Doe’s attorney, Jeffrey Herman, his client met Hopper on Facebook through mutual friends.

At that time, Hopper was 20 years old and Jane Doe was 15.

After several months of sending messages to Jane Doe, Herman says Hopper invited the girl to his house in Venice in April of 2011, and that’s when the alleged rape took place.

According to Herman, Hopper plied the teenager with alcohol and drugs before the assault.

Jane Doe’s attorney says multiple incidents of sexual assault occurred in the months that followed.

Eventually, the girl told her mother, who is now suing the up-and-coming actor — who last appeared in the film “Restless” — for unspecified damages.

Jane Doe’s attorney says she came forward because she’s concerned that what allegedly happened to her has happened to others.

“She was in the entertainment industry and she is concerned that this is not something isolated, but it happened all the time and hopefully, by bringing awareness to the issue, it will not happen to other kids,” Herman said.

KTLA contacted Henry Hopper’s agent to get his side of the story, but they refused to comment.

Henry’s father, Dennis Hopper, died at the age of 74 back in 2010, following a battle with prostate cancer.

    Why are girls meeting guys online and going to their home? This is a dangerous world and people need to learn to be more careful and selective.

        and if i walk into a gang-infested neighborhood at night in a $5000 suit and a Rolex, I'm not asking to get mugged. But it's still stupid.


        No one is implying that she was asking to be raped; she should not put herself in a position to be raped. Not going to the home of a man she met online would be a good beginning. Being care is something that we all must do because of the times we live in.

    • Janet Ruiz

      Good point. Matter of fact here is that Mr. Hopper didn't hold a gun to her head asking the teenager to come to the house. I also don't think he was shoving the alcohol and drugs down her throat.

      Though the real question here is, where do the girls parents come in line when it comes to enforcing curfew and guidelines for a minor?

      The state should take the minor into custody, since its relevant the parents seem to have no responsibility values to enforce for a child.

  • HAPG

    "Jane Doe’s attorney says multiple incidents of sexual assault occurred in the months that followed", my question, so WHY did she keep coming back to his home? REALLY THOUGH.

    • ALI

      AGREED. This is BULLSHIT…NOT GUILTY PERIOD, this girl and her Mother are Liars, Abusers of the Law. Sick with greed, Henry is Innocent…Her Story doesn't pass the Smell test.

  • T.R.M.

    WOW, Mark your kind (what kind dont know) setting some fine examples for this world keep on trucking you trik .what morons LMAO THE REAL MEXICAN

  • ann

    Very sad if this is all true, but one can't help to ask, why make a public announcement, why have a news conference? I would think if there really is a victim here, the only conference to be having is one between Jane Doe and the D.A.

  • mark

    Wonder how they can legally put this kids photo on the news if he's just accused?……Wonder how much KTLA gets sued for if he didn't rape anyone?………i like how her mommy says she's in the business……LMAO!…if her precious daughter is IN THE BUSINESS,,,then WHY THE F**k is she hooking up with dudes on facebook?……and why would she go to a dudes house that she doesnt even know?…i'll tell you why,,,,,,,,,BECAUSE SHE'S A LITTLE SLUT AND A HO and her mommy doesnt know her daughter very well at all,like most mothers dont know their 15 year old daughters…… the way,,,,,,why cant hoppers son find any p***y without having to talk to strangers on facebook for 2 months?…..WTFFFFF?…….all this is,,is a chick and her mommy wantin to cash in on somebody they found out had some ca$h……thats all it usually is…………by the way,,,,,he sure as hell had an old daddy !!!!!!!!!!!……GEEZZZZZZZ!

  • Bob

    Surely the police will investigate these claims of rape and the DA will prosecute Mr. Hopper. It wouldn't be wise to let an accused rapist walk the streets like that. I mean, that's why the accuser is getting all this attention, right? It's not like she's making these claims up just to get money out of him.

  • SoabStiven

    I just got paid $6784 working off my laptop this month. And if you think that's cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers and made over $9k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do, Rich45.ℂOM

  • Rockina2

    COuld agree more with the comment about multiple occurances. If you go there once it is rape; if you go there again well then there must be some desire for the expected outcome.

  • Charles Scoggins

    You're right, it's a stupid name. Charles Scoggins the wannabe fake christian. You have new social networking sites were you claim to be muslium now. Already getting friend requests

    • Looking4Sanity

      Good for you,WeeWeinie! You SHOULD be with your own kind. I'm sure they'll be more than willing to accept your al taqqiya. You're one of them.And you STILL LOSE, LOSER! Now, be a good little Muzzie and GFY.

        • Looking4Sanity

          He stepped in the trap I laid for him with both feet and still hasn't figured it out! “Who's the retard now?” indeed! I wonder how long it will take him to figure out just how badly he has failed?

          • Looking4Sanity

            Of COURSE it is, you idiot! It wouldn't be much of a trap if it couldn't even snare a moron like you! You are just TOO easy! BWAHAHA!

          • Looking4Sanity

            I'm saying you got owned, fool. Mess with the best and lose like the rest. Oh, roger says he misses you! bwahaha!

          • WTE

            Why because you screwed up and sent me your real name and I used it? I realized I would probably get banned for doing it. NBD I got what I needed so the jokes on you Chrales

          • Looking4Sanity

            OK, bi-curious George. Whatever you say. You'll always be my pet monkey now regardless of whatever you choose to call yourself.

          • Roger

            Wee, does this mean he said something as bad as this when you were stalking me?

            I did not brag. I shown you a study. You used your opinion.

            Sometimes with monsters like you it is better if you are not living

          • Roger

            Wee, you're a serial stalker.

            Why pretend otherwise?

            I am going to find out who you are. Once I do I will call your employer and have you fired for the things you post. Then I will steal your identity and really mess my life up. When you attack my beliefs and values as a Christian you better be prepared for war

          • WTE

            (Deuteronomy 22:23-24 NAB)

            If within the city a man comes upon a maiden who is betrothed, and has relations with her, you shall bring them both out of the gate of the city and there stone them to death: the girl because she did not cry out for help though she was in the city, and the man because he violated his neighbors wife.

            It is clear that God doesn't give a damn about the rape victim. He is only concerned about the violation of another mans "property".

          • Roger

            Wee, you small little man.
            You keep making the same mistake here on site after site. This verse isn't for Christians, you haven't shown Christ taught it at all. You can't even show that the Jews who were given this are still following it.

            So, you lose all the way around. The hate blinds you, it really does.

          • Roger

            Nope, that's what confuses you muslim friendly types. We have morals because we want to live that way, not because sharia forces us to at the threat of a good stoning or honor killing.

          • WTE

            Charles Scoggins said that, not me. Why did you follow me here? You miss me already? All that tiresome work by you and roger to get me banned so you would not get schooled by me anyomore and once that happens you guys follow me here.

          • HiPlainsDrifter

            Wee …I seriously doubt if you could school my 5 y/o grand-daughter…let alone L4 or Roger…she's also more mature…

          • WTE

            You have a grandaughter?

            I feel sorry for her having a grandfather like you.

            Your not the brighest bulb. Matter of fact your ignorance shows daily. No wonder Galtfan exposed you

          • Roger

            Says the muslim friendly troll.
            Too bad you didn't have a grandfather like that the night you got into the car to go to that beer/drug party that got you arrested.

          • HiPlainsDrifter

            Not a bigot…just a man comfortable in his own skin, with a sharp tongue, and an inability to suffer fools…
            Way to go fool…
            I worship only God…

          • Roger

            You still admit that you declare jihad and want to burn Christians alive?

            You have really showed your immaturity now , Wee…
            A bunch of pinheads over on Navy's site put my name out there too and my Facebook page.
            Turns out I'm a male escort and 35 yrs old…funny how some believe anything and jump constantly to false conclusions….hehe..

            It shows no class and and real hate, that you say you're opposed to…

          • WTE

            You were dumb enough to let your information out?

            Youdeserved what you got. You know damn well if they had my name they would be using it. Roger threatened to conatct my employer once if he found out my name and get me fired. It really backfired on him when he said that. So you can take your immaturity comment and shove it. The funny thing for you three wanting me gone so bad you sure all jumped ship and followed me here

          • Roger

            You haven't shown he did. You just 'claim' he did.

            And you were the one that threatened to go to my boss. Poor little man that you are.

          • WTE

            So it's ok for you to threaten me and my job. Inever threatened to go to your boss. I may have said that but we all know you are a failed unemployed author.

          • WTE

            Charles, why all th e hatred for me? Setting off a nuclear device soon here in America? Or maybe you and roger are going to sneak a bomb in through our borders.

          • Roger

            We have enough morals we would never say something like this…

            My chuckle is that Iran is going to slip one through our admittedly very porous southern border and then detonate this in a US city

          • HiPlainsDrifter

            Galtfag and I once hosted a party in Chicago for posters on the Big Sites, he backstabbed me when he came under the spell of the corn queen…

          • WTE

            and you let him have your information. Dumb on your part genius on his. I applaud him.

            Funny thing is and you can even ask Mr. Michaels, this is my last week I will posting on ID for the foreseeable future. So I should go out with a bang.

            Now your growl site will lose hits and money since no one will post there but the moronic retards like you, roger, l4s, DHR. They have a few good people but most of them suck. Basically the main posters on that site ie. the ones I mentioned abone need put on a terrorist watch list for being anti-American extremist hell bent on taking this country down

          • L4S

            You applaud all that is evil in this world. That makes you completely unremarkable. The only thing noteworthy about you is your staggering stupidity and gullibility!

          • WTE

            Come on charles, quit covering for your mistake. I applaud him because he did what was right. when we have musliums like you, roger, and hpd you need to be exposed. GaultFan woke up and realized you are all traitors

          • L4S

            If you weren't such a coward, you'd turn us all in to the Obama regime for a reward. You won't because you fear the light just like the cockroach you are. Crawl back under the refrigerator where you belong.

          • WTE

            Sorry, I am not a snitch like you. I don't go crying to the admin when someone is schooling me like you and roger do when I kick you girls around . Snitches are the bottom of the barrel, but your use to being a bottom feeder

          • Roger

            Sure it does, and you are still breathing, so you bow to my authority.

            See how that works? And that muslim style insults really is a 'tell'.

          • WTE

            Are you saying you have the authority to control involuntary actions in other people?

            You can reply to this monkey

          • Roger

            And that applies to your 'giving me permission' to do things as well.

            See, when the tables are turned you look like the fool you are.

            And you are still breathing, so you still bow to my authority!

          • WTE

            You have not shown you have the authority to make other people breath. I have shown I can command you to reply and you do it right on Q.

            Reply my trained monkey.

          • Roger

            Still struggling and using parallel profiles? Your editor must be pretty limited with the talking points each of your profiles is allowed to say.

          • HiPlainsDrifter

            Wee is going away for the foreseeable future a threat or a promise?
            It will be good for you to step away, reload, and think about your Internet future…
            I guarantee you will not be missed….

          • WTE

            I am. Good for me? Look at how hateful and ignorant you act.

            I could care less if you anti-American twits miss you, trust me I won't miss you, unless I was aiming at you.

            Tell me why did you jump ship and decide to stalk me over here?

          • WTE

            You who comes from Iran can't make that call.

            I was born and raised in America. You immigrated, probably illegally

          • Roger

            The wording on that comment sounded so 'arabic'.

            At least awkward for someone pretending to have English as a native tongue.


            You make this way to easy.

  • Mick

    If he was 20 and she was only 15, it's deemed as rape even if she was going along with it becomes she's a minor, he was 5 years older and an adult who was over 18. As the adult who should have known better, he's at fault. As for why it took 2 years to bring this to light, maybe it's because no jobs or career help ever came from their hook-ups and there's some bitterness there.

  • Jill

    What a bunch of hooey! She's having sex with the guy for a while, something happens that pisses her off, and suddenly *POOF!* it isn't consensual sex anymore, but RAPE!
    Buncha crap…

  • FokusPulley

    Why did they put Dennis Hoppers name in the headline instead of smearing Henry Hopper? Thats crazy Dennis shouldn't have to have rape and his name in the same sentence

    • Intheknow

      Because his father was with Roman Polanski when he rape the underage girl way back in the day. So was Jack Nicholson. He did the same thing the same way. Like father like son.

  • Tony

    You have to question why the mother is so focused on a media circus ! Maybe she should ask herself where she was when her 15yo was hanging around with a 20yo. Why the same 15yo who know says 2 years later she was raped, went back for more.

    Maybe before this media circus started, both parties should have taken a lie detector. It would not be the first time a teen has manipulated things to suit their needs.
