57-year-old Nicolas Cage has tied the knot again. The famous Hollywood actor married his 26-year-old lover Rico Shibata. For him, this marriage was already the fifth. And Rico went down the aisle for the first time.
The couple’s wedding took place on February 16 in a Las Vegas hotel.
It’s true and we’re very happy, Cage told People.
The couple chose this date for a reason. As the actor said, this is the birthday of the father of his beloved, who is no longer alive.
For the wedding celebration, the bride chose a handmade Japanese wedding kimono from the city of Kyoto. The newlyweds exchanged traditional Catholic and Shinto vows. After the wedding, Rico took her husband’s surname.
After the ceremony, the couple celebrated the holiday in a small company of family and friends. Among them was the ex-wife of the actor Alice Kim, with whom he remained on good terms, and their 15-year-old son Kal-El. Cage also has a 30-year-old son, Weston, with actress Christina Fulton.
Nicolas Cage and Riko Shibata met in Japan a year ago.
Interestingly, Cage’s last marriage lasted only four days. He also registered a relationship with 23-year-old Erica Koike in Las Vegas, but four days later, he filed for divorce. The actor later said that he was drunk at the time of the marriage and did not realize his actions.
