Dennis Hopper's son Henry sued for allegedly raping 15-year-old girl



tbd-henryhopper080112.jpgThe late Dennis Hopper's 21-year-old son, Henry Hopper, has been sued for allegedly raping a 15-year-old girl after befriending her on Facebook, TMZ reports.

The mother of the now-16-year-old girl says the pair met through a mutual friend in February 2011, but began getting close through Facebook communications. The suit says the girl, called Jane Doe, was invited to Hopper's Venice, Calif., home several times with the lure of drugs and alcohol.

The suit says when the girl was over, Hopper would get her drunk or high and then "engaged in sexually offensive conduct with her," which includes sexual intercourse, forced oral copulation and sodomy, TMZ says. The site says it's unknown if Jane Doe ever called the cops.

The lawsuit says Hopper "preyed upon a young impressionable child, suggesting that he cared for her, luring her into his home with promises of alcohol and illegal drugs, and then repeatedly taking advantage of her youth and vulnerability."

The mother is suing for unspecified damages.
