Nicolas Cage has secretly tied the knot with much younger girlfriend Riko Shibata, according to a report.

The Hollywood star reportedly married Shibata in Las Vegas at the Wynn hotel and casino. Daily Mail obtained a copy of their Nevada marriage certificate, which indicated that their union took place on Feb. 16.

Not long after Daily Mail broke the news, TMZ released exclusive photos taken from the wedding ceremony. In the photos, Cage, 57, is seen rocking a black ensemble complete with a tie from Tom Ford, while the 26-year-old bride looked stunning in her black and red stylish kimono, which she wore over a white dress.

Sources said the wedding was a mix of Catholic and Shinto ceremonies and even involved some reading of poetry by Walt Whitman and Haiku.

Records from the Clark County Clerk’s Office also showed that Shibata took Cage’s surname following their nuptials and now goes by Riko Cage.

The “Lord of War” actor did not deny his marriage when asked by TMZ. He told the media outlet that “it’s true, and we are very happy.”

Cage proposed to Shibata via FaceTime back in August after about a year of dating. At the time, the latter was in Japan, while the actor was in New York. Despite being in different locations, Cage made the engagement happen by sending the engagement ring to her via FedEx.

“She left New York and went back to Kyoto, Japan, and I went back to Nevada and I haven’t seen her for six months,” he was quoted by Page Six as telling his brother Marc Coppola on the latter’s radio show.

“We’re really happy together and we’re really excited to spend that time together so I finally just said, ‘Look, I wanna marry you’ and we got engaged on FaceTime,” he added.

This is Cage’s fifth marriage. He was married to Patricia Arquette from 1995 to 2001, Lisa Marie Presley from 2002 to 2004, Alice Kim from 2004 to 2016, and his last but most controversial marriage was with Erika Koike in 2019. Their marital relationship was cut short when they decided to file for divorce just four days after their wedding.

Interestingly, ex-wife Alice and their son Kal-El were spotted at Cage’s wedding to Shibata last month.
