Pint-sized international woman of mystery Erika Koike’s cover has been blown, and her 4-day marriage to Nicolas Cage is officially over. According to TMZ, a judge granted them a divorce on Friday, May 31. It seems that Nic’s initial request to have the marriage annulled, claiming fraud, was unsuccessful. This brings Nic’s lifetime divorce total to 4 (to date). Erika’s name has now been added to Alice Kim, Lisa Marie Presley and Patricia Arquette’s ex-wife group chat. No word as to whether or not Nic will have to pay spousal support as Erica has requested. I’m certainly rooting for her.
According to The Daily Mail, Erika accused Nic of damaging her reputation claiming “I’m hurt and mistreated, it’s unfair, but the case is sealed and my lawyer won’t let me speak until we are all done‘. In the meantime, she’s back “working at a restaurant on the outskirts of Los Angeles” and was “seen locking lips with hunky new man”. Erika Koike, I salute you!
While we’re all waiting on pins and needles to find out the details of their divorce settlement, Erika doesn’t seem to be wasting her youth away waiting for her next big break. According to The Daily Mail:
‘Erika was picked up at the restaurant by this guy in a fancy sports car after finishing work at 3am and it was plain to see that they’re very much into each other,’ an observer told DailyMail.com.
Approached for comment by DailyMail.com, Erika said. ‘He’s just a customer who comes here. He’s not my boyfriend yet.
‘I’m free to do whatever I want. Nic did what he did, we’re not going to reconcile or get back together.
‘Nic could have come to me and talked to me, not publicly humiliate me.
He’s not her boyfriend YET. Erika’s already thinking 3 – 4 steps ahead. When Nic thought they were playing checkers, Erika was playing Yahtzee (had she been playing chess, Nic would be walking around wearing nothing but a barrel held up with suspenders). But who knows, maybe she’s actually been playing Global Thermonuclear War this whole time and shit really about to pop-off. Don’t sleep on Erika Koike!
