American actor Nicolas Cage has filed for an annulment of his marriage, just four days marrying his partner, Erika Koike.
The 55-year-old married his partner on Saturday after making a court application for a licence in Nevada on the same day.
It seems the union was just not meant to be though, as he asked for the union to be annulled less than a week later.
The Con Air actor has now been married four times, previously having been wed to Alice Kim, Lisa Marie Presley and Patricia Arquette.
Cage is believed to be arguing that he was drunk when he made his vows in Las Vegas. It is reported that if the annulment is now awarded then Cage will pursue a divorce. The actor had been dating his make-up artist girlfriend for almost a year before they decided to tie the knot.
Meanwhile back home, divorce is also on the rise. Briefly.co.za previously reported on the increasing divorce rates in South Africa. Fewer people in South Africa are getting married and the divorce rate has rocketed, according to Statistics South Africa.
