During a court hearing on April 5, the ailing actor was told to resolve his differences with estranged wife Victoria Duffy who will receive 12,000-dollar-a-month in spousal and child support from him.

and his estranged wife have been told to tone down their bitter feelings towards each other for the sake of their seven-year-old daughter - by a Los Angeles judges. Superior Court Judge Amy Pellman ordered the actor to pay his wife Victoria Duffy $12,000-a-month in spousal and child support in court on Monday, April 5.

The judge also ruled that Duffy can live on the family property for the immediate future. "Easy Rider" star Hopper, who filed for divorce shortly after revealing he was battling cancer, had requested Duffy be asked to leave his property. Hopper, 73, did not attend the hearing.

Pellman addressed Duffy and the family members who were present in court and told them they needed to reconcile their differences before "desperately ill" Hopper dies. The judge said, "There needs to be street-cleaning on both sides of this street." Her thoughts were with the couple's daughter - she added, "Having her extended family in a war with her mother is not in her best interests."

Outside court, Duffy told reporters, "It's heartbreaking and I hope it can be amicably resolved." She has agreed to remain at least 10 feet away from her husband on the property. Duffy claims the divorce is an attempt to cut her out of her inheritance - an accusation that has been denied.
