UPDATE: That was fast! Just days after E! News had confirmed Nicolas Cage and girlfriend Erika Koike obtained a marriage license, it appears as if the actor is pumping the breaks.
Court documents obtained by E! News indicate Cage filed for an annulment with Koike on Wednesday, indicating that the pair had evidently tied the knot.
E! News has reached out to the star's rep for comment. The Blast was first to report the news.
The fourth time is the charm?
It looks like Nicolas Cage is getting ready to walk down the aisle yet again. According to court documents obtained by E! News, the actor has applied for a marriage license with his girlfriend Erika Koike in Clark County, Nevada.
It appears that the 55-year-old and his young girlfriend have been dating since last spring. The pair first sparked romance rumors in Puerto Rico while he was filming the upcoming action film Primal. A grizzly-looking Cage and Koike dashed into a private car after dining at a local restaurant on the island.
Since then, the pair has been spotted in cities like Los Angeles, Calif. where Nicolas and Erika went out to dinner in showstopping ensembles. The actor wore a leopard print blazer, while his beau wore shimmering silver pants and a fringe blouse.
Before dating Koike, Cage was married to Alice Kim for ten years, but separated in 2016. During their short-lived, but seemingly happy time together, the actor and former waitress welcomed their son Kal-El Coppola, 14.
And, before that, the National Treasure star was briefly married to Lisa Marie Presley in 2002 and Patricia Arquette in the late '90s.
No word yet on if and when the big wedding will take place, but congratulations to Nicolas and Erika!
