Nicolas Cage files for annulment four days after marriage

Nicolas Cage’s fourth marriage has come to an abrupt end.

The Blast reports that Cage, 55, is seeking an annulment from Erika Koike — just four days after the couple tied the knot.

Cage began dating Koike, a makeup artist, last year, and they married on March 23rd. The reason for their separation was not immediately clear.

If Cage is not granted an annulment, he will seek a divorce, The Blast reports.

Update – March 29th: According to annulment documents filed by Cage, the couple were “both drinking to the point of intoxication” before participating in the wedding ceremony on Saturday, May 23rd. Due to his intoxication, Cage says he “lacked understanding” of his actions and “reacted on impulse without the ability to recognize or understand the full impact of his actions.” He also claims that Koike did not tell him about “the full nature and extent of her relationship with another person,” nor did she disclose her criminal history.

This is not the first time Cage has seen his marriage come to an end in relatively short order; in 2002 he split from his second wife, Lisa Marie Presley, after just three months. Cage was married to his first wife, Patricia Arquette, from 1995 to 2001. His third marriage to Alice Kim, a former waitress, lasted 12 years from 2004 to 2016.

Last year, Cage starred in Mandy, one of our favorite films in all of 2018. Among his upcoming credits is a role in an adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s The Colour Out of Space.
