Nicolas Cage recently separated from his wife of four days after getting hitched in Vegas — yikes. 💔
The beloved (but totally weird) National Treasure actor was filmed performing drunken karaoke following news of his spoiled nuptials. His song of choice? Prince’s iconic ballad “Purple Rain.” But Cage’s rendition was so off-key and cringe-inducing, we’re surprised Prince didn’t rise from his eternal slumber and slap the embittered actor back to his senses.
It’s awful that Cage’s marriage fell apart, but “Purple Rain” didn’t deserve this butchery.
Ill-fated couple Cage and bride Erika Koike dated for a year before their unlikely split just days after their Las Vegas wedding. There’s no word on what exactly caused the breakup, but reports indicate Koike expects full spousal support — double yikes.
People from around the world reacted to Nick Cage’s bizarre annulment and karaoke session.
Marriage of 4 days? Wedding ceremonies in India last longer than that. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Should have got a 4 day pre-nup…she gets a percentage of everything Nick made in those 4 days of marriage…although it appears he lost money those 4 days…💰😏

Well, it’s polite to call it spousal support – it’s really four days worth of pay.

But some on Twitter applauded Cage’s version of “Purple Rain.”
Angrily singing Purple Rain is so Nicholas Cage. pic.twitter.com/1uMMSfx5ix

What a coincidence: Nicholas Cage and angrily singing Purple Rain just so happen to be two of my favorite things… https://t.co/8RGXlBpozA

Others related way too hard with Cage’s anguished karaoke session.
Nicholas Cage singing Purple Rain is where I'm at this week.

It’s still unclear if Cage signed a prenup before his Vegas wedding.
What was he thinking?! Oh yes I know.

So Nicholas cage married this woman for 4 days & she wants spousal support 😭😭

Many are joking about Erika Koike’s request for spousal support.
Nicholas Cage got married in Vegas while he was intoxicated. Now he wants an annulment and his wife of 4 days wants spousal support. The nerve. 😂😂

But others are blaming Cage for his impulsive marital decision.
I think Nicholas cage should give his recent wife spousal support. Dude is getting divorced after 4 days. What a dip shit. You deserves that shit. I don't feel bad for him.

At this point, the twists and turns of Nicolas Cage’s life are more thrilling than most of his movies. But if Cage started butchering a classic Prince song at my local karaoke joint, I’d be Gone in 60 Seconds.
