Hopper Divorce Pits Older Kids Against 7-year-old Daughter

In her response to Hopper's motion, Duffy-Hopper countered that Galen should be made sole beneficiary of the $750,000 death benefit as security for child support. According to her documents, the policy was originally purchased in 1996 for that purpose after a court ordered it to secure then young son Henry's upbringing.

Henry's mother and Hopper's fourth wife, Katherine LaNasa, was the sole beneficiary of $750,000, and Duffy-Hopper, who had just married Hopper, was the sole beneficiary of the remaining $250,000.

After Henry, now 19, became an adult, the balance of the policy reverted to Hopper's estimated $30 million estate, which Hopper said in previous filings he has already set up for Galen and his three other adult children to receive a "substantial portion."

Royston expects this issue will probably come up again at trial. But Duffy-Hopper hopes to settle the case before then.

"We've been trying to settle the case," Royston said. "Victoria is attempting settlement. Basically the ball is in their court."
