Dennis Hopper has time for pot and planes, but not divorce

Tbd-dennishopper051410 Dennis Hopper has been having a bad year thus far, what with his wife Victoria filing for divorce and him needing treatment for prostate cancer. But it hasn't been so bad that he can't slum it into a law office and sit for a deposition, her lawyer claims. Jeez, it's not like he's dying or anything.

Tara L. Scott, Victoria's attorney, says that while Hopper has been claiming he's too sick to go to a meeting about his divorce, he's sure been healthy enough to go on vacation, hit up events like his art show at L.A.'s Museum of Contemporary Art and his Hollywood Walk of Fame induction and make weekly trips to the medical marijuana dispensary. That leads them to believe he should be able to come in for an hour or two and chat.

Victoria "fully appreciates the gravity and seriousness of (Hopper's) illness," court papers obtained by E! state, but since he's not "bed-ridden and continues to engage in travel plans and various activities," he should be ready and able to talk about how to split up their stuff. Note we didn't say willing.
