Dennis Hopper, who’s battling cancer, has filed for divorce from his wife, Victoria, Los Angeles court records show.

The actor, 73, cites irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. He’s seeking to provide spousal support for Victoria. The division of their property is yet to be determined.

Hopper and Victoria have one daughter together, Galen, 6. The actor is requesting joint legal and physical custody of their little girl.

The couple have been married for nearly 14 years. Hopper lists this past Tuesday as the date of separation.
