connectVideoNicolas Cage wants annulment just four days after the last trip down the aisle
According to the court documents, Entertainment Tonight is reporting that actor Nicolas Cage has filed for annulment, four days after getting married. Cage and his wife Erika Koike began dates back to April, and applied for a marriage license and tied the knot on Saturday. The actor has requested a divorce and an annulment is not possible.
Nicolas Cage’s estranged wife, but four days is speaking out about their split.
Erika Koike was photographed with a new man just two months after her ill-fated Las Vegas marriage with the actor, but insists nothing romantic is going on with him, nor with Cage.
“He’s just a customer that comes here. He is not my boyfriend yet,” Koike, 34, told The Daily Mail of a muscular man shown with her outside of a restaurant where she works.

“I’m free to do what I want. Nic did what he did, we are not going to reconcile or get back together,” she added. “Nic could have come to me and talked to me, not publicly humiliate. I am hurt and abused, but it is unfair, but the matter is closed and my lawyer will not let me speak until we are all done.”
Koike also claimed that the Cage 55, tried to reconcile with her 12 days after the filing of an annulment of the marriage, but she refuses to be with him.
In March, Cage filed for annulment of his association with Koike, claiming he was too drunk at the time that he obtained their marriage license in order to understand what he was doing.

NICOLAS CAGE IS UP-AND-DOWN CAREER CAN BE A SIGN THAT HE’S DOING SOMETHING RIGHT
Video obtained by The Daily Mail appears to show the Cage and Koike in the city clerk’s office in Las Vegas, with Cage grumbling, “She has a drug dealer as a friend. I don’t do it.” Koike can be heard, and told him, “I’ve never asked.”
In his annulment filing, Cage cited fraud as the reason for the split, with the assertion that Koike did not inform him of “the full nature and extent of her relationship with another person.”
Koike allegedly asked for spousal support from the “Con Air” star — and a legal expert claimed that they just might get it.

“If the parties had gotten together and agreed that they wanted an annulment of the marriage, the chances of getting a increased dramatically,” family law attorney Steven Mindel previously told Fox News. “But the fact that she does not want the annulment of the marriage, means that it’s going to be very difficult for Nicolas Cage to an annulment without her something she wants in return. And usually, that would mean that Nicolas Cage is going to have to pay her a lot of money to accept the annulment.”
