Nicolas Cage's four-day-wife Erika Koike demands spousal support
Cage and makeup artiste Erika Koike applied for a wedding license in Las Vegas on March 23 this year and the actor filed for annulment 4 days later
Nicolas Cage's fourth marriage lasted only four days, but the estranged wife insists she deserves her share of the money.
The 'Face/Off' actor and his makeup artiste wife, Erika Koike, applied for a wedding license in Las Vegas on March 23 this year and got married the very same day. Four days later, the actor applied for an annulment, stated a report by MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) earlier which added him to the list of short-lived celebrity marriages.
According to TMZ, Koike filed legal documents, obtained by the publication, 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.
