Nicolas Cage at a Glance
Nicholas Cage’s Multiple Failed Marriages
Some say that Cage is cursed in marriages because he has been involved in quite a few in his life. Here’s a list of Cage’s ex-wives:
- Married in 1995, they separated in early 1996 and divorced sometime in 2001.
Cage and a friend met the actress Patricia (who was 19 years old at the time) at Canter’s Deli Restaurant in Los Angeles. He went almost as far as freaking her out when he tried to get her to marry him; this was sometime in the late 1980s. They lost contact for a while, but fate brought them back together in the mid-1990s, and they rekindled their love by getting married in 1995, just two weeks after they met again. They got married on the top of a cliff in California, and there was only 1 guest at the ceremony. The marriage went through its ups and downs, with the couple allegedly having a lot of arguments. They filed divorce suits against each other during their marriage and withdrew them before formally untying their marriage knot in 2001.
Lisa Marie Presley
- Married in August 2002, divorced sometime in 2004.
Nicolas Cage and Lisa Presley (daughter of music legend Elvis Presley) were married in August 2002 in a romantic ceremony in Hawaii, and in a dramatic turn of events, Cage filed for divorce from his wife just 107 days later, citing insurmountable differences as the main reason for his divorce. Cage explained that he considered his marriage to Lisa a big mistake and reflected that they should not have married at all.
- Married in 2004 and divorced sometime in 2016
Alice was Cage’s third marriage attempt. They were married in July 2004 on a private cattle farm in Northern California. She bore Cage’s second son, Kal-El, and they were married for 12 years. In an interview, Cage stated that he did not really want his marriage to end with Kim and that he considered this to be the only real marriage he entered into.
- Married in March 2013 and divorced in June 2013
Cage and Koike dated for about a year before they decided to get married; the couple held their relationship back and were first seen together on vacation in Puerto Rico in April 2018. The two finally tied the wedding knots in Las Legas in March 2013 and had barely begun their honeymoon when Cage shocked the world and demanded the annulment or dissolution of their only 4-day-old marriage.
Cage gave some reasons for his request for the annulment of his marriage with Koike. First of all, he explained that before and during his marriage with Koike he was heavily intoxicated and not in the right frame of mind to understand the full implications of his actions. Nicolas Cage revealed that during her courtship, Koike was involved in another relationship that she never revealed to him. He also claimed that Koike had a criminal record in her past. The court granted him a divorce in June 2013.
