Christina Fulton, mother of Nicolas Cage’s eldest child Weston, has sued the actor for fraud and breach of contract, escalating his financial and legal nightmare.
The mother of Cage’s 18-year-old son alleges she’s been caught in the web of his financial mismanagement and is now more than $1.2 million in debt herself.
Cage stated in an October lawsuit he’s facing financial ruin.
After allegedly being duped by a former accountant, Samuel Levin, he owes $6.3 million in back taxes, recently defaulted on a $2 million loan, and has begun a sell-off of homes, cars, yachts and other possessions to recoup his losses.
Christina Fulton says she was provided an L.A. home years ago by Cage in exchange for raising Weston, and believed the property was under her name.
That is until Cage gave her a 60-day notice to get out.
She says she now owes the IRS more than $1 million, she says, in addition to $250,000 in unpaid credit card debt, for which she also blames Cage.
All told, Fulton says damages to her exceed $13 million.
Cage’s attorney Marty Singer responded: “This lawsuit is ridiculous and absurd. Nicolas Cage has given her approximately three million every year for many years, even though he was only obligated to pay her six thousand a month.”
“We expect this lawsuit to be promptly thrown out.”
