Wedding No. 5: Nicolas Cage Married to Riko Shibata
Nicolas and Riko tied the knot in Sin City’s Wynn hotel on a date chosen to honor his late father’s birthday. While the groom wore a Tom Ford tux, his bride wore a handmade Japanese bridal kimono.
This is the fifth marriage of Nicolas Cage, taking place close to two years after he broke his four-day marriage to Erika Koike in March 2019.
Before his split from Erika, Nicolas and Alice Kim were married for 10 years, but they separated in 2016. They share 15-year-old son Kal-El Coppola together.
Nicolas and Lisa Marie Presley were married and they separated just over 100 days in 2002, and in 2001 his six-year marriage to Patricia Arquette came to an end.
In August 2020, Nicolas announced that he got engaged to Riko, but said the coronavirus pandemic prevented him from proposing in person.
As he described on brother Marc Coppola’s radio show, “She left New York and went back to Kyoto, Japan, and I went back to Nevada and I haven’t seen her for six months. We’re really happy together and we’re really excited to spend that time together so I finally just said, ‘Look, I wanna marry you,’ and we got engaged on FaceTime.”
The actor said he popped the question with a black diamond ring and mailed it to Japan.
“Her favorite color is black so she wanted the black gold, and the black diamond,” he explained, noting, “I customized and personalized it and I actually sent it to her FedEx.”
At the time, Nicolas was hopeful they’d exchange vows in a “really beautiful Shinto wedding” in Japan, but plans obviously changed for the newly minted husband and wife.
