Nicolas Cage angrily belts out 'Purple Rain' at karaoke bar after wife Erika Koike files for spousal support
Nicolas Cage is really letting his feelings out from the looks of it. The actor was spotted belting out Prince's Purple Rain during a karaoke night with his friends in LA. His singing can only be described as angsty and angry and pretty hoarse at some points. A video surfaced of Cage singing the song at Hotel Miyako in LA just weeks after he filed for an annulment. Cage was married to girlfriend Erika Koike in Vegas in what has been reported as a moment of impulse.
Erika is reportedly not happy with the annulment. According to TMZ, Erika filed legal documents responding to the actor's annulment last month. Cage's argument in the annulment was that he "reacted on impulse and without the ability to recognize or understand the full impact of his actions," and also stated that the marriage was based on fraud.
Koike's document responded by stating that Cage's "impulsive actions" don't qualify for an annulment and as for the alleged fraud, she says Cage asked her to start again "in the right way" just 12 days after filing for an annulment, proving their relationship is legit.
The publication stated that Koike agreed that they are not right for each other and should immediately get a divorce. However, she wanted spousal support. According to the documents obtained by TMZ, the site quoted that she lost career opportunities during her long relationship with Cage and her reputation had been damaged by his allegations. She has also asked him to pay for her legal fees.
Cage and Koike started dating in April 2018 and got married on March 23 this year. On the eve of their wedding, the couple was seen engaging in a heated argument and photos by TMZ shows Koike yelling at the 55-year-old actor.
Cage has been married three times previously, first to Patricia Arquette, from 1995 to 2001, and Alice Kim, from 2004 to 2016. He was married to Lisa Marie Presley in 2002 for 108 days before they split. He has two sons, 28-year-old Weston Coppola Cage, whose mother is Cage’s former long-term partner Christina Fulton, and Kal-El, whose mother is Kim.
