Nicolas Cage, Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans

First Look Pictures

Nicolas Cage is liquidating assets and burning bridges. Possibly with a flamethrower.

The financially strapped actor has been sued by the mother of his 18-year-old son, Weston, who claims Cage bought her a house and promised to turn the title over to her, but instead served her with a 60-day eviction notice in September.

Christina Fulton put her acting career on hold to take care of Weston, who turns 19 later this month, and Cage promised to provide for her, per her lawsuit filed Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court.

According to the complaint, the Oscar winner turned most of the parenting duties over to Fulton, opting not to exercise his joint legal and phyiscal custody rights to the fullest, and then, when Weston turned 18, Cage "removed" the young man from his mother's home.

"Absurd." That's what Cage's lawyer calls the suit.

"The lawsuit is an absurd claim," attorney Martin Singer told TMZ. "All of these claims are long-time barred by the statute of limitations and are baseless."

The claims also include that Cage physically, mentally and emotionally abused her (she does not go into detail) and that she owes more than $1 million in back taxes because of an error made by Cage's litigious ex-manager, Sam Levin, who she's also suing.

Levin and Cage have also sued each other, each claiming the other screwed him.

Fulton is asking for at least $13 million in damages for all the alleged suffering.


We would prefer to think of Nicolas Cage as a darn fine actor, not as a douche, like these guys.
