Looks like Nicolas Cage had a leaving Las Vegas moment for real and woke up with quite the hangover.

Following reports the Oscar-winner married a woman suspected to be his makeup artist girlfriend Erika Koike on Saturday, TMZ has reported that the actor has now filed for an annulment.

Court records that TMZ claim to have accessed apparently show the actor returned to court on Wednesday and asked a judge to void the marriage which was only four days old.

The actor has been married three times before but a four-day marriage would set the star a new record.

The actor’s previous spouses are Patricia Arquette, Lisa Marie Presley and Alice Kim.

His wedding with Kim busted up in 2016 after 12 years, and it looks like this time the actor is planning to nip it in the bud.

The reports come after the 55-year-old was caught on film making a scene in a court house where sources say he was applying for a marriage license.

The video shows Cage with girlfriend Erika, but it’s far from a happy scene.

The video – shared exclusively by the Daily Mail – was said to be filmed inside a Las Vegas courthouse, and shows Cage approaching a row of service desks before disappearing around the corner with his soon-to-be wife.

In the video, Cage is heard saying, “she’s got a drug dealer as a boyfriend”, and quickly after says, “I’m not doing it”.

To which the bride-to-be responds: “I didn’t ask you to”.

She repeats the assertion before Cage appears to smile and ushers her out of sight.

An eyewitness told the Daily Mail: “’The whole time he was yelling ‘she is going to take all my money’ and ‘her ex is a druggy, her ex is a druggy’.”

The same witness claims to have seen the pair applying for the license on the self-service machines shortly after the video, at around 11am on Saturday.

It looks like some of the reported ravings were on the money, or something else was awry. The marriage will now potentially void depending on the results of the annulment application.

An eyewitness is quoted as describing Cage as ‘very out of it’ and ‘most likely drunk’, and boy we bet he wish he really had left Las Vegas before things got so messy.
