Actor Nicolas Cage is paying the court ordered child support for his son Weston Cage. The younger Cage is a former actor with his last paying gig being in 2013 in the film ‘Joe’. The 27 year old son of Nicolas married in April for the third time to Hila Aronian. His second wife Danielle is the mother of Cage’s grandsons, Lucian,4, and Sorin,2. Danielle has sole custody of her two children, Weston has visitation rights. The former couple’s divorce was tumultuous, with accusations of drug abuse and violence being hurled back and forth.
Weston whose mother is Cage’s former girlfriend actress Christina Fulton, has been ordered to pay $8000.00 a month in child support. Nicolas set up a trust fund for his son, that pays Weston $16,000 a month, the child support is half of his monthly trust fund. Nicolas set up the fund so that Weston could make the monthly child support payment. The fund is designated to certain bills, so that Cage’s ‘troubled son can’t squander the trust fund on drugs.’ The fund pays for the health insurance, car payments, and rent of Danielle, in addition to doling out the lump sum of $8000 a month.
According to the legal documents filed in Los Angeles Superior court, both Weston and Danielle understand that Nicolas Cage is not legally responsible for Weston’s child support payment, and the trust fund can be revoked at any time. The divorce proceedings were so violate that Danielle requested and was granted a restraining order against Weston. He must stay at least 100 feet away from her at all times. The visitation of the former couple’s children must be done through a third party or a safe location like a police station. Nicolas Cage has had numerous legal problems with the IRS through the years for unpaid taxes, that the actor blamed on his manager.
