Nicolas cage and Riko Shibata, his wife of nine months, walked the red carpet hand in hand at GQ’s Men of the Year Party.
The couple posed for the cameras at today’s event in West Hollywood, with Cage, 57, wearing a black suit and gray fedora while Shibata, 26, was dressed in a traditional Japanese kimono.
They were joined by a number of celebrities, including Lil Nas X, Kumail Nanjiani, Henri Golding, Andrew Garfield, Debby Ryan and Troye sivan.
Cage and Shibata met in Japan. They got engaged on FaceTime in August of last year, before get married on February 16 in an intimate ceremony in Las Vegas.
Shibata is Cage’s fifth wife, although Cage, who is 31 years her senior, is her first husband.
Cage was married to Patricia arquette from 1995 to 2001, Lisa Marie Presley from 2002 to 2004, Alice Kim from 2004 to 2016, and Erika Koike for less than four days in 2019.
The actor reportedly decided to end their union because he was apparently too drunk to understand his actions.
In court documents obtained by Us weekly, the outlet reported that “[Cage] lacked understanding of his actions while marrying [Koike] to the extent that he was unable to consent to the marriage. Before obtaining a marriage license and participating in a wedding ceremony, [they] both drank to the point of intoxication. “
Luckily, love was just around the corner with Cage and Shibita meeting the following year.
Cage shares 16-year-old son Kal-El with Kim and 30-year-old son Weston with actress Christina Fulton.
Thanks to Weston, Cage has four grandchildren: Lucian Augustus, seven, Sorin Reid, five, and twins Venice Zohar and Cyress Zara, one.
