Nicolas Cage, recognized for his prosperous acting career, is also a devoted family man. Welcoming his daughter August Francesca Coppola Cage in September 2022 with wife Riko Shibata, Cage was already a caring father to his sons from previous relationships: Weston Cage Coppola and Kal-El Coppola Cage.
Expressing his strong bond with his children, Cage mentioned to People in 2022 that he values spending time with them. Kal-El, born in 2005 to Cage and ex-wife Alice Kim, ventured into acting at age 13, voicing a young Bruce Wayne in “Teen Titans GO! To the Movies.” Weston, born in 1990 to Cage and ex-girlfriend Christina Fulton, is a metal singer and actor, appearing in films like “Lord of War” and “Raven.” Cage, prioritizing family over roles in iconic movies, shared that he declined parts in films like “Lord of the Rings” and “The Matrix” to spend time with Weston during his formative years.
Nicolas Cage, with an estimated net worth of $25 million in 2023, has been generous with his children. He expressed nostalgia for simpler times, missing going to the toy store now that his sons were grown. Weston, at 32, reportedly received a monthly allowance from his father, sparking legal disputes amid Cage’s child support battle with Hila Coppola Cage, his estranged wife and mother of his children.
Weston revealed in court documents that he received a monthly allowance of $7,300 from his father. Amid legal battles, Hila sued for additional spousal support and child support for their twin daughters. She claimed Weston led a lavish lifestyle supported by trust fund payments of $16,666 monthly from his father, a claim Weston vehemently opposed on social media.
Weston’s counterarguments regarding financial difficulties were met with skepticism by the court. The judge ruled against Weston, ordering him to pay his ex-wife’s legal fees in substantial installments by January 2024.
The legal saga continued as Weston counter-sued Hila, alleging she stole $130,000 from his bank accounts and demanding she pay his legal fees. However, the judge noted concerns about the accuracy of Weston’s claims, especially regarding his financial status and credibility.
Despite the legal back and forth, Weston vowed to expose those taking advantage of his family name and fortune in an upcoming documentary. He promised to reveal evidence of his talents and past wrongdoings in his life.
