This costly news strikes the 73-year-old actor as he battles prostate cancer. The judge also ruled that Hopper's wife, Victoria, can remain living at their home in Venice, CA.

The actor has been married to Victoria, his 5th wife, since 1996. Together they have a 7-year-old daughter, Galen. All three of Dennis Hopper's grown children from previous marriages were in court to support their father.

Just last month, Hopper received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his work in numerous movies like Easy Rider, Rebel Without a Cause and Apocalypse Now.
