Nicolas Cage married year-long girlfriend Erika Koike in Las Vegas while he was drunk but got the marriage annulled four days later. Koike claims that the marriage was legitimate and seeks spousal support.

Koike has filed a suit against Cage, responding to the annulment he filed in March.

Cage claims he acted on impulse and wasn’t in the right state of mind when he decided to get married. He also contends that the marriage was predicated on fraud.

On the day of the marriage, the couple reportedly got into an argument and Cage caused a scene at the court house, and appeared to be inebriated.


“She is going to take all my money, her ex is a druggy, her ex is a druggy,” Cage reportedly yelled. Koike responded, “Baby I am not asking you to do this.”

Koike says that the marriage was legitimate because two weeks after Cage filed the paperwork, he asked if they could restart their relationship the “right way.”

In addition to spousal support, Koike is seeking compensation for lost career opportunities and legal fees.
