Hollywood actor Nicolas Cage has announced he is annulling his marriage to his partner Erika Koike just four days after they were wed at a venue in the American gambling hotspot of Las Vegas, the UK’s Evening Standard newspaper reported.
The Gone in 60 Seconds and Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse actor, who was born as Nicolas Kim Coppola in California’s Long Beach area, married his girlfriend at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada state last week. This was his fourth wedding ceremony. However, Cage has now decided to quit the relationship, claiming he and Koike were intoxicated when they chose to get married.
The actor filed for annulment this past Wednesday, according to court papers seen by the Evening Standard, with severe intoxication being cited as a reason, with Cage claiming to not have understood his actions in marrying Koike.
Cage also claims that Koike was cheating on him with an unnamed party. The 55-year-old actor, and Erika Koike, a makeup artist, believed to be aged around 34, began dating in April of last year. Cage was previously married to former waitress Alike Kim, singer-songwriter Lisa Marie Presley and actress Patricia Arquette.
