Things just went from bad to worse for Dennis Hopper. During a court hearing on Monday, a judge ordered the actor, who is stricken with prostate cancer, to pay his estranged wife Victoria $12,000 a month in spousal and child support and to continue providing her with a place to live on his property.

Hopper was not in court, but Victoria and his adult children were in attendance to hear Judge Amy Pellman’s ruling, which broke down to $8,000 a month in spousal support and another $4,000 in child support.

Under the order, Victoria can remain living on Hopper’s property during the duration of their increasingly bitter divorce battle.
