Nicolas Cage drunkenly got married in Las Vegas by mistake

The actor filed for divorce just four days after the ceremony

Nicolas Cage has filed for a marriage annulment just four days after getting married whilst drunk in Las Vegas.

The Hollywood actor applied for a marriage licence with Erika Koike on March 23, 2019 and the pair were married the same day in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Just four days later, Cage then filed for an annulment with documents stating that the pair had been “drinking to the point of intoxication.”

Cage said that due to his intoxication, he “lacked understanding” and “reacted on impulse without the ability to recognise or understand the full impact of his actions.”

He added that Koike did not tell him about “the full nature and extend of her relationship with another person” and that “such conflict in personalities and dispositions that are so deep as to render the two incompatible in marriage.”

The cult actor has become a beloved figure online in recent years – leading to a phenomenon dubbed “Cage Rage” that sees clips of the actor being placed in out-of-context scenarios.

“The issue is, with the advent of the internet, doing these mashups, where they pull these choice moments without the context of the whole film around it to support it, has created this meme-ification, if you will”, he told IndieWire.
Speaking about how the culture affected his last film, Cage added: “I think that [Mandy hasn’t] been given perhaps a fair viewing by virtue of the fact that the internet has mashed them up with these moments that have been cherry-picked, that aren’t really in the context of the character or how the character got there. I have to be honest.”
