Don’t let anyone ever say that Nicolas Cage lacks style!
The iconic actor was spotted leaving the American Museum of Natural History in New York City with his new girlfriend, Riko Shibata on Monday. The NYC outing comes just one week after they were seen in public for the first time as he took her to visit his own tomb in New Orleans. Cage rocked a fantastic leopard print jacket with black leather pants and a white T-shirt. Let’s not forget his kick-a** heeled boots, dark shades, and a plethora of rings. We gotta admit it, we think his outfit is pretty fricken cool!
His beautiful new GF wore black jeans, a tan beanie, and a furry jacket. They also went to a movie and hung out at the legendary Rainbow Room before heading back to their hotel. Together, they made one cute couple.
As previously mentioned, Shibata and Cage were first seen together when they took a trip to New Orleans to visit the tomb he bought and had prepared for himself when he eventually passes on. Now that’s a first date! The actor purchased it in 2010 and had the Latin words, “omnia ab uno”, which translates to “Everything from One,” inscribed on the side of the pyramid-shaped enclosure. It is located in St. Louis 1, New Orleans’ oldest cemetery.
An article published by “Ripley’s Believe It Or Not” claims that Cage’s tomb “puzzles everyone, even people who give tours of the grave.” The also noted that some tourists leave lipstick marks on the facade when they visit it. If that doesn’t impress your date, we don’t know what will.
The Louisiana trip, and now the NYC outing, marks the first few times we have seen him with the company of another since he ended his 4-day marriage to Erika Koike in March 2019. The actor was granted a divorce two months later in May.
Cage gave an interview to The New York Times Magazine at the time and admitted he was upset about the split.
“There was a recent breakup,” Cage said in the interview. “I don’t really want to talk about it. I was pretty upset about that and the way things happened.”
