Who are Nicolas Cage’s ex-wives?
Nicolas Cage was married to fellow Oscar winner Patricia Arquette from 1995 to 2001.
Cage and Arquette met in Los Angeles in the late 1980s, and would eventually get married in a 10-minute ceremony in Carmel, California.
There were rumors that the couple separated soon after the wedding, but Arquette says that is not the case.
“There were times when we weren’t living together because we were fighting, but it wasn’t as reported and I didn’t feel that I needed to explain that,” she told The Telegraph in 2015.

“There were times when my mom was dying [from breast cancer in 1997] and I was living with her, taking care of her.
“There were times when he was away working on a movie. It was our thing.
“I still don’t feel like I owe it to anyone. It’s funny when people are so wrong, and they put you in this position and decide who you are.”
She told Paper Magazine in 2002: “It’s always hard to make that decision to get divorced.”
“We’ve both moved on with our lives, and I think it’s important to honor the people we’re with now, and concentrate on the future.”

Nicolas Cage was married to Lisa Marie Presley, the daughter of Elvis Presley, from 2002 to 2004.
Presley told Larry King in 2003 that the couple had “similar situations, similar backgrounds.”
“So we connected, we had a great connection. We were both a bit – we’re sort of these gypsy spirited, you know, tyrannical pirates,” she told King.
She would add: “And one pirate marries another they will sink the ship basically is what it comes down to.

“It was kind of one of those things where you marry someone hoping – I mean we’d already had – we’d been together for two years before we got married, so – it was one of those things where you’re marrying hoping that you’re going to either stabilize it or it’s going to, you know, accentuate all that was going on prior to what was problematic.
“So it kind of did the latter, that’s all.”
Presley has been married four times, including to the late pop legend Michael Jackson.

Cage’s longest marriage has been to actress Alice Kim – they were together from 2004 to 2016.
They have one child together – Kal-El Coppola Cage, who is 15.
The couple met when she was working as a waitress in Los Angeles, according to Gossip Cop.
Kim was 19 at the time, and is 20 years younger than Cage.
“When my mother-in-law came to the house for the first time, before even hello or nice to meet you, all I got was, ‘she too young!’ And so I knew this was going to be an uphill battle,” Cage told The Guardian in 2013.
They would split in 2016, but it would be the longest relationship Cage has ever had.

Cage was married to Erika Koike for just four days in 2019.
They were together for about a year before they tied the knot, but then Cage sought an annulment just several days after the ceremony.
He would claim he was “too drunk” to get married.
Cage claims that they were both intoxicated and he “lacked understanding of his actions in marrying [Koike] to the extent that he was incapable of agreeing to the marriage,” according to court documents obtained by The Blast.
Erika reportedly opposed the annulment and made a spousal support claim – though it is not clear whether she received any money.
