Looks like this happily ever after won’t be last too much longer…
Mega-movie star, Nicolas Cage, has officially filed for an annulment from his marriage to private girlfriend, Erika Koike.
The pair have been dating quietly for over a year, and despite keeping their relationship under wraps, they opted for a Las Vegas wedding. Court records indicate that the couple requested a marriage license on Saturday, March 23rd, 2019 and married that same day.
But something must have happened between the couple because what was likely intended to last was hit with a shock only four days later. According to the court records obtained by PEOPLE, Nicolas Cage, 55, submitted an application for annulment on Wednesday, March 27th.
Before news of their wedding and immediate annulment surfaced, the couple was recorded arriving at the Las Vegas courthouse where their appearance should have been a sign of what was to come. The couple appeared angry and agitated as they applied for a license.
According to Daily Mail, these photos capture the couple in the throws of an argument as Cage's makeup artist wife appeared to be getting into a waiting cab to leave. In one video, they appear to be fighting and Cage even pushes her. The footage has since gained major attention for the bizarre attitudes had by both Nicolas Cage- who is normally very well-mannered, and his parter, Erika.
The star is no stranger to heartbreak, however. In 2018, Nicolas opened up about his single status and his words hinted that he was taken by surprise when his marriage to Alice Kim ended. He shared, “It was a shocker for me — I definitely didn’t see it coming and those feelings had to go somewhere, so they went into the performance.” He added, “And now it’s like, wow, I’m 54 and I’m single again, I didn’t see that coming! It’s pretty grim.”
We hope that the actor finds peace- whether it’s with a partner or not. We wish them the very best!
