Dennis Hopper's personal assistant has accused the actor's estranged wife of trying to kill the cancer-stricken star, according to a new legal document.
The Easy Rider legend, who is fighting prostate cancer, is currently locked in a bitter divorce battle with partner Victoria after filing to end their 13-year marriage in January. His assistant Emily Davis has added her support to Hopper's fight, making the shocking allegation against Victoria in an official declaration filed in court and obtained by TMZ.com.
Davis claims the 73 year old was "at the mercy of (Victoria's) cruelty" when he was rushed to the hospital in December, before adding that Victoria was "trying to kill him." Davis continues, "(Victoria) is a threat to all in the home and has already looted millions of (dollars in) property that is not hers."
The actor's eldest daughter Marin, from his former marriage to actress Brooke Hayward, also lashed out at Victoria in new legal papers, calling her actions "frightening" and blaming her for spreading "slanderous lies" to the press.
