I mentioned last week that Nicolas Cage filed for an annulment four days after his marriage to girlfriend Erika Koike in Las Vegas. Now,Us Weekly has the court docs, where Cage basically says he was too drunk at the time to think about what he was doing.
The actor claims that before obtaining the marriage license and walking down the Vegas aisle, he and Koike “were both drinking to the point of intoxication.” So much so, that he “lacked understanding of his actions in marrying [Koike] to the extent that he was incapable of agreeing to the marriage.” So when Koike “suggested” that they tie the knot, he just “reacted on impulse.”
But there’s another side to the annulment. Cage also claims that Koike didn’t disclose “the full nature and extent of her relationship with another person,” or “her criminal history” and “additional active criminal proceedings.” Uh oh.
