Nicolas Cage claims, in a request for annulment, he was too drunk to make a responsible decision when his new wife suggested they get married.
According to Cage’s annulment documents, obtained by The Blast, the “Leaving Las Vegas” star admits he and Erika Koike were “both drinking to the point of intoxication” before participating in a wedding ceremony.
He says he “lacked understanding” of his actions and was therefore incapable of agreeing to a marriage with the makeup artist. Cage now understands he “reacted on impulse without the ability to recognize or understand the full impact of his actions.”
In his request to get the marriage wiped from the record books, Cage also reveals that his wife did not tell him about “the full nature and extent of her relationship with another person,” and believes fraud was committed.
Further, he says Koike has an active criminal history that he didn’t know about. We did some digging, and Koike was actually busted for DUI last year in Las Vegas.
She pled not guilty to the charge last week, and is due back in court in June.
Since learning about the alleged fraud, Cage says he kicked Koike out of his house, and “made arrangements” for her to stay somewhere else.
