The 55-year-old actor and make-up artist Erika Koike tied the knot in a surprise Las Vegas wedding on 23 March – the same day they obtained their marriage license.
But, just four days later, Cage decided he wanted out and filed for annulment papers.
The Con Air star had claimed that he was ‘too drunk’ to realise what he was doing.
Koike has now revealed she is willing to legally cut ties with Cage, but for a price; agreeing that they are not a good fit for marriage, she argued the union should still count and is now seeking a divorce.
In court papers obtained by TMZ, she challenges one of his reasons for the annulment request, insisting there was nothing fraudulent about their relationship, and claimed that the actor had even asked if they could start again ‘in the right way’ 12 days after the annulment filing.
She has also accused Cage of damaging her reputation with his allegations, after declaring he was not aware of the ‘full nature and extent’ of Koike’s relationship with another person, or her criminal history.
Additionally, she is requesting spousal support from her ex, alleging she lost a number of career opportunities during their romance. She also added that she wants Cage to cover her legal fees regarding their marriage split.
