Nicolas Cage is married for the fifth time, Page Six revealed this weekend. Fans of the actor know that he is currently married several times, but this time he chose a Japanese woman who is only 26 years old.
Page Six confirmed that Nicolas and Riko Shibata got married at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas, and the actor said in a statement that the news was true. Nicolas and Riko were married in a small ceremony on a date set to commemorate his father.

Riko wore a Kyoto bridal kimono, while Tom’s tuxedo was designed by popular designer Tom Ford. Page six says they took classic vows in the Catholic and Shinto religions, including Walt Whitman poetry and a Japanese haiku on top.
Nicolas’s last wife, Alice Kim, was reportedly also in attendance for the wedding ceremony, along with the actor’s children. According to Page Six, Cago and Riko first met in Shiga, Japan, and have been dating since the dissolution of Cage’s last marriage.

Page Six says this isn’t the first time Cage and the 26-year-old woman have been publicly noticed. For example, in March 2020 in New York City, Cage and Riko were seen at the Tavern on the Green, where sources said they didn’t talk much but drank heavily.
Regarding the Academy Award winner’s proposal, Cage apparently asked for her hand in marriage via Facetime and had her ring sent to Japan via FedEx.
An interesting fact is that Riko is actually four years younger than Cage’s first son, and this is the first time she’s been married. As for what the actor has planned next, he was last seen in the Netflix production, History of curse words, and he signed on for the role of the Tiger King in the Amazon special on the Tiger King star.
Fans will remember when the DJ / producer, Diplo, commented on the studio’s choice to cast Nicolas Cage, instead of him, for the film, although it’s hard to say if Diplo was really upset that he didn’t get the part.
