About Nicholas Cage (Why did he decide to change his name?)

I don’t think I need to write something about Nicholas Cage as he is a famous Hollywood actor and filmmaker. But I might as well state a few things about his early and love life. Born on January 7, 1964, Cage is 58 years old who was born to August Coppola and Joy Vogelsang.

He was raised in California along with his brothers Marc Coppola and Christopher Coppola. He is the nephew of Francis Ford Coppola, a film director. His real name is Nicolas Kim Coppola and he worked in a few of his uncle’s films. He changed his name to Nicholas Cage to avoid it looking like nepotism.

The story behind their marriage

Being drunk and deciding to get married in Los Vegas is probably not a very good idea. And guess what Nicholas made headlines after he filed for annulment four days after his surprise marriage to Erika Koike.

The two had been together for about a year before they got to Vegas and decided to get married. As mentioned earlier, the two were first spotted vacationing in Puerto even though they had managed to keep their relationship away from the media and the public.

Later they were once again spotted on their way t having dinner in Los Angles. During that time Erika looked as if she was either bored or annoyed as usual while Nicholas wore an outfit that channeled his inner pimp.

The two were enjoying partying and drinking when they were in Vagas. And surprisingly out of nowhere, the two decided to file for a marriage license. So, the two walked down the aisle on the very same day.

The ugly truth behind their divorce

There was even a video where they applied for their marriage license but Cage created a scene saying that he won’t do it and in response, Erika told that she never asked him to do it and after they left. Cage then filed for divorce only after four days. Cage stated that he was drunk heavily when he agreed to get married.

He had several other reasons as well. Later it was rumored that Kaike was a friend of a drug dealer. Cage also claimed fraud because Koike hadn’t revealed the full nature and extent of her relationship with another person. She had also hidden the truth regarding her criminal record.

As well as according to The Blast, she pled no contest to two DUI charges in Los Angeles in 2008 and 2011. After that, she was put on probation, given the usual community service gig and to attend AA meetings. She had to attend alcohol and other drug education and counseling program for 18 months as well.

Not only that she was once again charged with one DUI back in 2016. She was charged for domestic violence against her then-husband in 2006. But she was pled not guilty due to lack of evidence.

Erika strikes back at her ex-husband. Where is she now?

But Erika didn’t endure everything that Cage did to her. She decided to strike back at Cage and said she wanted a divorce and spousal support. As we all know Cage was very rich because of his successful acting career so she claimed a payout for a four-day marriage.

They had been together for about a year and there was something to do with her losing the job for her beloved. Nicholas surely wasn’t happy about this situation. And after much legal wrangling, they finally to divorced in 2014. Well, it hasn’t been revealed if she got the spousal support but the two are back in their business.

The only information about Erika we could find is that she dated and was the wife of Nicholas Cage for four days. But after their divorce, there is not a single clue on where or what Erika is doing now. There is also no information on whether she is in another relationship or not.
