Nicolas Cage Moves on from Erika Koike — Who’s His New GF?
Almost a year after calling it quits with makeup artist Erika Koike, actor Nicolas Cage has a new lady in his life!
Cage, 56, has been spotted holding hands with Riko Shibata on multiple occasions over the past week.
On Monday, Nicolas and Shibata wore matching leather pants to the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.
Days before, they were photographed arriving at JFK Airport, where he carried a beluga whale toy from the Atlanta Aquarium.
Before the NYC sightings, Nicolas was seen visiting his nine-foot tomb in New Orleans with a mystery woman bearing a resemblance to Shibata in photos obtained by People magazine.
Earlier this year, “Extra's” Renee Bargh spoke with Cage at the premiere of “Color Out of Space,” where he raved about “Marriage Story,” starring Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson as a couple going through a divorce.
“I think that's a very important movie,” said Cage, who has been married four times. “I think anyone who's even considering divorce — and the families — it should be required viewing. Having been through it, family law is absolutely the worst.”
Last year, Cage spoke out for the first time about his four-day marriage to Koike. He told The New York Times Magazine, “There was a recent breakup… I don't really want to talk about it. I was pretty upset about that and the way things happened.”
After nearly a year of dating, Cage and Koike applied for a marriage license in Las Vegas on March 23. They tied the knot, but he filed for an annulment on March 27.
