Nicolas Cage had a meltdown reportedly in Los Angeles as he was spotted at a karaoke bar singing Prince’s 1984 iconic hit ‘Purple Rain.’

For those who are unaware, Nicolas is going through strange times as his four-day wife Erika Koike has hit him with a spousal support request after he registered a request for annulment of their marriage. The two have been married for less than a week.

His filed to annul his March 23 marriage to the 34-year-old makeup artist, claiming he “lacked understanding” of what was happening due to “drinking to the point of intoxication,” according to a report in TMZ. Apparently, it was Erika’s idea to wed and that Nicolas “reacted on impulse and without the ability to recognize or understand the full impact of his actions.”

She has filed a counterclaim asking for spousal support as she has said that she lost career opportunities during her nearly one-year relationship with him. She has cited that his allegations of fraud against her have damaged her reputation. They began dating in April 2018. 

He's been married three times previously -- to Alice Kim, Lisa Marie Presley and Patricia Arquette.
