Nicolas Cage is one of the most successful, versatile, and unpredictable actors of Hollywood. That is why his sudden marriage and even more sudden separation with Erica Koike came as a surprise for many. The actor got married to Erica in 2019 and divorced her 4 days later.
The event is as bizarre as it sounds. The reason, to be very honest, is still not clear to many. It is as if Erica appeared out of some thin air in Nicolas’s life and vanished even more quickly. Let us try and find some more details about Erica.
Erica Koike Affair
Erica and Nicolas were dating since 2018. Apparently, Nicolas and Erica Koike started dating while they were together in Puerto Rico. Nicolas was then shooting for the movie, ‘Primal’. The affair started in April and then they were again spotted together in Beverly Hills in May.
They went on a date together where Erica was seen dressed in a white top and chic metallic pants. Nicolas, on the other hand, was wearing a zebra print jacket and black shirt. It seemed that the actor’s out-of-the-box fashion sense was complimented by Erica’s sharp fashion sense. Erica Koike and Nicolas Cage dated for almost one year.
Erica and Nicolas Marriage
Erica Koike and Nicolas Cage applied for a marriage license on March 23, 2019, in Las Vegas. Just four days later, they were officially married and the very same day, Nicolas filed for an annulment. In June, Nicolas and Erica Koike got divorced.
Opening up about the random event, Nicolas explained that both Erica Koike and he were out-of-their-mind drunk on the fateful night of their wedding. They were drunk to the point of intoxication and simply had no idea what they were doing.
A video surfaced sometime later that featured Nicolas Cage and Erica Koike. After receiving the license, Nicolas was heard saying that he does not want to do it. He meant that he did not wish to carry forward the marriage and also the relationship. Erica was heard replying that she never asked Nicolas to do any of it.
According to Nicolas, he was drunk and upset with Erica for cheating on him. A picture of Erica smooching another man had surfaced that caused a stir among the people. Nicolas confirmed that he was not aware of the nature of her relationship with that unknown man and what that man meant in Erica’s life.
Erica & Nicolas Explain
Erica Koike explained that the man she was seen kissing to was actually her customer. She denied being in a serious relationship with him. She said that he was not his boyfriend and she is a free woman with the right to do whatever she wants.
It seems like Erica’s ‘freedom’ did not sit well with Nicolas. Erica Koike also expressed her disappointment with ex-husband Nicolas Cage.
Erica said that she would have appreciated if Nicolas had talked to her about everything first. But Nicolas’s approach of handling the matter publicly was not at all liked by Erica at all. She said in an interview that she can not talk about the matter in detail as her lawyer has forbidden her from doing so.
But she did mention that Nicolas wanted to get together with her after filing for an annulment. But whatever be the situation, Erica Koike confirmed that she and Nicolas are never getting back together.
Erica Koike – Make-Up Artist
Erica Koike is the 4th wife of Nicolas Cage. Nicolas Cage has been previously married to Patricia Arquette from 1995 to 2001, Lisa Marie Presley from 2002 to 2004, and Alice Kim from 2004 to 2016. Erica is a makeup artist and worked in the short movie, ‘Hankikanto’. She is still waiting for her big break in the industry and we wish that 35-year-old young lady gets it very, very soon.
