Nicolas Cage continues to live his life just as large as his on-screen personas as he has reportedly married for the fifth time. The bride this time is named Riko Shibata. She hails from Kyoto, Japan, and is aged 26. She is younger to Cage by more than thirty years, and to Cage’s first son by four.
The fourth marriage with Erika Koike had ended after just four days. It had happened in March 2019, with video clips showing Cage shouting about how he was being tricked into the marriage registration. Later he had admitted to being drugged at the time and had no awareness of what exactly was happening.

Riko and Cage had apparently met back in 2020 when Cage was in Tokyo. Cage had revealed in an interview that she had gone back to Tokyo after half a year in New York. They had continued seeing each other over the internet where Cage proposed and mailed her the engagement ring.
The wedding took place at the Wynn Casino and Hotel, in Las Vegas. Cage was seen wearing a black Tom Ford tuxedo. Riko wore a traditional black kimono made in Kyoto. The vows consisted of both Christian and Shinto phrases with a few haikus sprinkled in.
