Dying Dennis Hopper’s wife not going down without a fight.

As The ENQUIRER reported exclusively the Easy Rider star was facing his final days from untreatable prostate cancer when he suddenly filed for divorce from his wife of 14 years Victoria.

But now Victoria has filed a response to the Jan.14 divorce petition filed by Hopper.

She cites the same reasons for the bizarre bust-up but with one arguably clause – she wants custody of their six-year-old daughter as well.

Oh that, AND according to reports, dennis muy violento, smokes pot in front of the kids and carries a firearm.

Yet, Hopper has asked a judge to award his wife spousal support.

Is this some new bizarre way to care for loved ones after death without them being clobbered with inheritance taxes especially if one has vast art collections?  Like Hopper?
