The wasted marriage?
This marriage of his breaks his own record of short marriages. In 2002, he married Lisa Marie Presley, which lasted for a total of 108 days before separating.
TMZ reported that just hours after tying the knot in Las Vegas, Nevada, the newlyweds were spotted arguing at the Las Vegas hotel Bellagio. Witnesses and photo evidence showed that new wife of Nicolas Cage yelling at the actor. He revealed,
“[Erika] suggested to [Nic] that they should marry, [Nic] reacted on impulse and without the ability to recognize or understand the full impact of his actions."
He went on to say that she didn't disclose "the full nature and extent of her relationship with another person", didn't disclose her criminal history and that they had "such conflict in personalities and dispositions that are so deep as to render the two incompatible in marriage."
Not much known about Erika Koike except that she was also previously married. She has been keeping a low profile ever since her relationship status with Cage was discovered.
As for Cage, his first marriage was to Patricia Arquette from 1995 to 2011 followed by exchanging vows to Lisa Marie Presley to 2002. He married for the third time in 2004 to Alice Kim. This marriage ended in 2016 and the now ex-couple has a son together, Kal-El Coppola Cage.
