Nicolas Cage is still struggling with the fact that his marriage to Erika Koike was stranded after four days earlier this year. The 55-year-old actor says in The New York Times Magazine that it hurt him.
“I would rather not talk about it”
“There was a recent break,” Nicolas recalls. “I would rather not talk about it. I was pretty devastated by it and the way it happened.”
The actor and the makeup artist were together for over a year when they gave each other the yes in March in Las Vegas. Four days after the wedding, Nicolas already applied for annulment because, according to him, they were drunk and did not know what they were doing. Erika would also not have been honest about a relationship with another person and her criminal past. The divorce was finally completed after 69 days.
For Nicolas, by the way, it is not his only flash wedding. In 2002 he lasted only three months with Lisa Marie Presley. His marriages with Patricia Arquette (six years) and Alice Kim (twelve years) were more successful.
