Dennis Hopper, who is fighting prostate cancer and dealing with a divorce, is now saddled with another burden: a $12,000-a-month payment to his estranged wife.

A judge ruled Monday that Hopper, 73, must pay Victoria Hopper $8,000 a month in spousal support and $4,000 in child support. Against the actor’s wishes, the judge also ruled that Victoria can live on the Hopper compound in Venice, Calif., for the time being.

All three grown Hopper children – Marin, Ruthanna and Henry Lee – showed up in court to support their father, though they didn’t speak.
