Nicholas Cage, 47, was arrested on Saturday in New Orleans. It was reported that he was so intoxicated he forgot where he lived. Cage allegedly pulled his wife, Alice Kim, by the arm to the home he thought was their rental. Kim was trying to explain that wasn’t their home. This is what caused an onlooker to call the police.
The police report reads, “The actor then began striking vehicles and later attempted to get into a taxi.” At that point, an officer who had been flagged down by onlookers drove up on the couple, immediately observed that Cage was heavily intoxicated and ordered him out of the cab, which prompted Cage to start yelling. “Why don’t you just arrest me?” The officers again told Cage to go home, and Cage allegedly dared them to arrest him again.
He was then detained on one count of disturbing the peace and one count on domestic abuse. Later, he was released on $11,000 bail.
Cage just keeps sinking further down with his already domestic battery charge and a $14 million tax bill-despite his $40 million salary last year.
Cage had six homes foreclosed on and four federal tax liens filed against his properties in three different states.
Nicolas Cage is having financial trouble? Yes, he sure is. The million dollar Hollywood actor, who has starred huge movies like National Treasure, World Trade Center, and Gone in Sixty Seconds, is now seeing some of his properties disappear in auctions.
Cage’s New Orleans homes will be put up for auction on November 12th. The homes had an unpaid mortgage debt totaling over 5-6 million dollars. These homes aren’t the only investments Nicolas Cage has. Cage’s home in Hollywood and in Germany are up for sale in order for him to pay the IRS what is owed to them.
So where in the world did all the money go? Cage is certain that his former business manager, Samuel Levin, has had something to do with it. Levin is getting sued by Cage for 20 million in damages. According to Cage, his manager wasn’t paying taxes and was putting money in very risky real estate investments. Looks like someone has some explaining to do.
