Nicolas Cage’s Estranged Wife Wants Spousal Support

Nicolas Cage's Estranged Wife Wants Spousal Support

OK, we previously told you that Nicolas Cage got hitched in Las Vegas in a spur of the moment wedding Erika Koike. Four days later he requested the marriage annulled.

Now it appears his 4-day wife wants spousal support? Wow, Nicolas Cage found himself a true golddigger. Read on…

Nicolas Cage's Estranged Wife Wants Spousal reports that Nicolas Cage’s estranged wife is asking for spousal support despite the fact they were only married for four days.

The ‘National Treasure’ star should have no problem having this case dismissed but stranger things have happened.

Nicolas Cage wanted the marriage annulled because he admitted that he was drunk at the time and ”lacked understanding of his actions in marrying [Erika Koike] to the extent that he was incapable of agreeing to the marriage”.

Like we said it was one of those “WTF did I do” moments in his life and he was fixing his mistake, but now it’s bitting him in the but.

Erika Koike is now claiming she wants him to pay spousal support to her as she claims she has lost job opportunities during their year-long relationship. Koike also alleges that her reputation has been damaged by the allegations he has made. She is also asking for the actor to pay her legal fees, TMZ reports.

Nicolas previously stated he was ”too drunk” to get married.

His lawyers stated:

Prior to obtaining a marriage license and participating in a marriage ceremony, [Cage] and [Koike] were both drinking to the point of intoxication. As a result of his intoxication, when [Koike] suggested to [Cage] that they should marry, [Cage] reacted on impulse and without the ability to understand the full impact of his actions.

Erika Koike had secrets:

The court documents also claim that Koike didn’t ‘‘disclose to [Cage] the full nature and extent of her relationship with another person.” Not only that, Erika also “didn’t inform him of her criminal history including additional active criminal proceedings.”

It is believed that Erika is due in court in Las Vegas in June over a DUI charge, which she has pled not guilty to.
