Strike up the band (a Kazakhstani death metal band with a Tuvan throat singer as the front man) and check Target for a bridal registry (12 Instapots and a single cheese board in the shape of New Jersey), Nicolas Cage just applied for a marriage and listed his girlfriend of almost a year, Erika Koike, as his intended. If the state of Nevada finds no reason to deny Nic’s request, he and Erika will be free to marry anytime within a year of its issuance. If everything goes to plan, Erika will be free to join the prestigious ranks of Nic’s ex-wives which include a woman who also married Michael Jackson (Lisa Marie Presley), the star of TV’s Medium (Patricia Arquette), and a woman who allowed her child to be named Kal-El (Alice Kim). And she’ll also be able to play grammy to Weston Cage’s brood of baby bats! I’ll put it this way, life doesn’t get less interesting when you marry Nicolas Cage.
According to TMZ:
According to court record, Nic applied Saturday for a marriage license in Clark County, and he listed his new-ish girlfriend, Erika Koike, as the second party. Nic lives in Sin City, BTW.
Nick and Erika have been together since April 2018. They were seen hanging out in Puerto Rico at the time while Nic filmed a new movie — although, not much more is known about his potential bride-to-be. She appears to be a makeup artist with at least one credit on IMDb.
Ok, so maybe I was wrong. Since we don’t know a thing about Erika, it’s entirely possible that for her, marrying Nic Cage is a safe, boring option. Maybe Erika has literally seen it all, including Bigfoot trying to receive fellatio from the skull of a T-Rex, and already has a kid named Admiral Melmac The Destroyer.
