Well that was a brief romance. Nicolas Cage has filed for an annulment less than a week after embarking upon his fourth marriage.

Nicolas Cage has filed for an annulment four days after getting married, according to a report.

The “Face/Off” star filed for an annulment from wife Erika Koike on Wednesday, Entertainment Tonight reported, citing court documents.

The court record also shows that the 55-year-old actor has requested a divorce if an annulment isn’t possible.

According to the news outlet, the former couple — who started dating last April — applied for a marriage license and tied the knot on Saturday in Las Vegas.

A rep for Cage did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Cage’s annulment request comes as footage of the actor’s bizarre behaviour while applying for a marriage license in Las Vegas surfaced online.

In the video, published by DailyMail.com, Cage appears worse for wear and can be seen muttering to himself before raising his voice at Koike, telling her he “isn’t doing it”.

An eyewitness told DailyMail.com: “The whole time he was yelling ‘she is going to take all my money’ and ‘her ex is a druggie, her ex is a druggie’.

“The woman only kept saying ‘Baby I am not asking you to do this’.”

The witness added that Cage appeared “most likely drunk” and “very out of it”.

This is Cage’s fourth marriage. He previously was married to Patricia Arquette from 1995 with the couple divorcing in 2001.

Cage first proposed marriage to Arquette when she was 18. She said no at the time but proposed to the actor nine years later.

Faced by rumours they had only been married for nine months before separating, Arquette told UK newspaper The Daily Telegraph in 2015 while their relationship had been tumultuous they had acted as a married couple for their six year union.

“There were times when we weren’t living together because we were fighting, but it wasn’t as reported and I didn’t feel that I needed to explain that. There were times when my mum was dying (from breast cancer in 1997) and I was living with her, taking care of her,” she said.

“There were times when he was away working on a movie. It was our thing. I still don’t feel like I owe it to anyone. It’s funny when people are so wrong, and they put you in this position and decide who you are.”

Following their split, he started dating Lisa Marie Presley. The pair wed in August 2002, but they filed for divorce just three months after their secret wedding in Hawaii, according to People.

Cage went on to marry Alice Kim, a waitress working at a restaurant he frequented, in 2004. They had a child together named Kal-El. Kal-El was Cage’s second child after Weston, who was born in 1990 to the actor’s then-girlfriend Christina Fulton.
