Nicolas Cage Claims He Was Too Drunk To 'Understand' He Was Marrying His New Wife

Nicolas Cage was too intoxicated when he married his new wife Erika Koike.

After almost four days into the marriage, Nicolas Cage filed for annulation of his marriage with his now wife Erika Koike.

The papers requesting his marriage to be canceled reveals the award-winning actor was too intoxicated to understand he was marrying the make up artist.

According to court documents filed on Wednesday, March 27, the Oscar winner claimed he "lacked understanding of his actions in marrying [Erika] to the extent that he was incapable of agreeing to the marriage.

The document further claims "as a result of his intoxication, when [Koike] suggested to [Cage] they should marry, [he] reacted on impulse and without the ability to recognize or understand the full impact of his actions.”

Cage further claimed there aren't any hindrances in annulment as Koike didn’t “disclose to [Cage] the full nature and extent of her relationship with another person.”

Likewise, the Oscar winner additionally claims Koike didn’t inform him of her “criminal history,” including “additional active criminal proceedings.” The document, however, doesn’t specify what the alleged criminal history or active proceeding is.

Meanwhile, Koike who went through the four-day long mini marriage with the actor agrees wholeheartedly and is not fighting the annulment. 

The duo started dating presumably from last April and applied for a marriage license and wed on Saturday in Las Vegas. As per the court documents, the actor filed for an annulment just four days later, requesting a divorce if an annulment isn't an option.
