(User Submitted) – Dennis Hopper, who's said to be in the "final days" of his losing battle with prostate cancer, has filed for divorce from his wife of 14 years, Victoria Duffy. The 73-year-old star of 1960s cult classic Easy Rider cites 'irreconcilable differences' with Duffy and seeks joint custody of their 6-year-old daughter. He offers spousal support for Duffy, his fifth wife, People reports. Despite this, a friend says the divorce is an effort to get Duffy out of the will.

"Its all about the money and who inherits what," the friend tells Huffington Post. "This is about getting Victoria out of the will, nothing more, nothing less." Hopper has three grown children, two of whom live in the Venice, Calif., compound with the actor and his wife.
