Nicolas Cage Was Drunk When He Got Married And Did Not Know The Full ‘Extent Of Her Criminal History’

It seems the spark didn’t last long between Nicolas Cage and his brand new wife, Erika Koike.

The 55-year-old “Face/Off” star filed for an annulment from Koike on Wednesday in Las Vegas, just four days after they tied the knot, according to court documents obtained by ET.

The court record shows that Cage requested a divorce if an annulment is not possible.

The pair applied for a marriage license and legally wed in secret on Saturday. The wedding came just less than a year after the pair began dating last April.

In court documents obtained by The Blast, Cage admits they were “both drinking to the point of intoxication” before getting hitched.

The documents state that he “lacked understanding” and that the “National Treasure” star now understands he “reacted on impulse without the ability to recognize or understand the full impact of his actions.”

He also reveals that Koike did not tell him about “the full nature and extent of her relationship with another person” nor did she tell Cage about “the full nature and extent of her criminal history” which includes “active criminal proceedings.” The Blast reports that she was charged with a DUI in Las Vegas last year and pleaded not guilty only last week. She is due back in court in June.

Koike was reportedly kicked out of the house as Cage “made arrangements” for her to stay elsewhere.

Cage has been previously married three times. First to Patricia Arquette from 1995 to 2001, then to Lisa Marie Presley from 2002 to 2004, and once more to former waitress Alice Kim from 2004 to 2016.

Cage and Kim share a 13-year-old son named Kal-El, and the star is also the father of a 28-year-old son Weston, from his previous relationship with actress Christina Fulton.
