Erika Koike details you don’t know from her past
She was arrested for battery in 2015
In 2015, she was reportedly in an altercation with a neighbor who sued her for assault and battery a year later. According to records, the neighbor claimed that Koike punched her in the face while they were in a dark parking lot. The lawsuit was later dismissed.
She was married before
Koike was previously married, and according to court records, it was not a peaceful relationship. She was also charged with domestic violence against her husband in 2006. It was later dismissed due to a lack of evidence, but Koike still felt the need to take out a protective order against her ex-husband. In 2014, they finally split.
She has a record
Koike didn’t come into her new marriage with a clean record. The 34-year-old pled no contest to not one, but two DUI charges in L.A. One was in 2008 and the other was in 2011. As punishment, she was put on probation and had to perform community service. She also had to attend AA meetings along with an 18-month long alcohol and other drug education and counseling program.
But it doesn’t stop there… Koike received another DUI charge in Las Vegas, ironically enough, in 2016. She pled not guilty and will return to court in June.
Erika Koike Spousal Support
Nicolas Cage’s divorce from estranged wife Erika Koike, whom he split from four days after their wedding, is taking a turn for the ugly. According to court documents obtained by Us Weekly, Koike, 34, filed papers on Friday, April 19, seeking spousal support following her brief marriage to the National Treasure star, 55.
The papers claim that Koike is entitled to the funds “given the length of the parties’ relationship.” Koike alleges that she endured “lost career opportunities” as a result of her loss of the relationship and damage to her reputation. In addition, the request also asks the court to take into account “the respective financial conditions of the parties” and the cost for her to regain financial independence.
The makeup artist is also seeking “reasonable attorney’s fees and costs of suit.” Cage and Koike tied the knot in Las Vegas on March 23 after nearly one year of dating. Four days later, however, the Between Worlds star filed for an annulment of their marriage and requested a divorce in the event that an annulment was not possible.
He claimed in his court documents, filed on March 27, that he “lacked understanding of his actions in marrying [Koike]” due to a high level of intoxication.
“[He] reacted on impulse and without the ability to recognize or understand the full impact of his actions,” the papers alleged. The director also alleges that Koike had hidden pertinent information from him, such as “the full nature and extent of her relationship with another person,” and “the full nature and extent of her criminal history.”
Cage was previously married to Patricia Arquette, Lisa Marie Presley and Alice Kim, with whom he shares son Kal-El, 13. The actor also shares son Weston, 28, with ex Christina Fulton.
