I guess the second thoughts appeared just a little late…
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.
As of March 29th, almost a week after their whirlwind ceremony, neither Nicolas Cage nor Erika Koike has commented on the matter.
This is not Nicolas first marriage- in fact, it is his third! The star was sealed to some other mega-famous stars, including Patricia Arquette in April 1995 and later Lisa Marie Presley in August 2002. His third marriage was with Alice Kim. The couple welcomed a son together in 2005 before separating in 2016. This was his longest relationship.
PEOPLE states that Koike, Cages most recent match, was previously married as well, although it is not clear to whom.
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!
