Nicolas Cage has had some incredibly brief marriages that ended in heartbreak, but his most bitter breakup involves the mother of his first son, Weston. Married in 1988, Nicolas Cage and Christina Fulton were together until their divorce in 1990, during which time Weston was born. Unfortunately, the finalization of the divorce wasn’t the end of his problems with Fulton, and decades later in 2009, she dropped a massive lawsuit on him after one of his homes went into foreclosure while he was struggling with massive debt.
The reason the lost home was a big deal is that Fulton claimed to be living in it. According to Fulton, she’d been awarded the home in their divorce as the home she raised their son in. At the time of the filing, Fulton was struggling with Weston, who had moved out but was undergoing psychiatric treatment following a violent public outburst (per CNN). For his part, Weston insisted that his involvement with his mother’s lawsuit was nonexistent and that he had no desire for a relationship with her at all.
Despite Weston’s statement, Fulton snapped back, alleging that her son was being manipulated by Cage, and she sought to have a conservatorship awarded over her son. The suit was settled in 2011 (per CNN).
