Actor Nicolas Cage’s wife of four days, Erika Koike, has agreed to a divorce but wants the veteran star to pay spousal support. According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Koike has claimed she missed out on job opportunities due to her relationship with Cage and that her reputation has been hurt by his allegations. She also wants him to pay for her legal fees.
The duo tied the knot on March 23 after applying for a marriage license the same day. Just after four days, Cage, 55, filed for an annulment.
Cage stated in his annulment request that he and his new wife Koike, a makeup artiste, had been “drinking to the point of intoxication” before getting hitched, and that he “lacked understanding” of what was happening.
The papers allege that “as a result of his intoxication, when (Koike) suggested to (Cage) that they should marry, (he) reacted on impulse and without the ability to recognize or understand the full impact of his actions.” This is Cage’s shortest marriage yet, topping his 2002 marriage to Lisa Marie Presley, which lasted 108 days before they split.
The National Treasure star also claimed that Koike did not disclose “the full nature and extent of her relationship with another person,” as well as “the full nature and extent of her criminal history,” which allegedly includes “additional active criminal proceeding”.
According to TMZ, hours after their wedding, the pair were spotted arguing at the Las Vegas hotel Bellagio. Witnesses and photos show Koike yelling at the actor.
Cage and Koike were first linked in April 2018 when they were spotted together in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
