It turns out that Weston Cage’s hospitalization following a brawl on an L.A. street this week was just the latest chapter in his parents’ ugly legal battle.

Weston, 20, is the son of Nicolas Cage and Christina Fulton, who demanded last week that Cage cough up more information about Weston’s condition.

Fulton filed a motion June 3 in L.A. Superior Court as part of a $13 million lawsuit alleging he mentally and emotionally abused her, then evicted her.

Christina claims he took Weston out from under her care at that time.

Fulton states that she cared for “medically challenged” Weston until he was 18 and that he “suffered from a number of mental, psychological, and physical ailments” that “required ’round the clock supervision and parental care.”

Fulton also explained that she quit her acting career to care for her son before he was ultimately taken away from her by Nicolas Cage.

It gets worse.

A hearing has been set for July 14 on whether the actor will be required to disclose to her more information about Weston’s current mental state.

Nicolas Cage is also being asked to fork over his tax returns. Perhaps this squabbling had been weighing on Weston’s mind earlier this week?

In any case, a few weeks before the now-infamous fight, his father ended up being deposed by Fulton’s camp regarding his own anger issues.

Specifically, Nicolas Cage’s insane arrest in New Orleans on suspicion of domestic abuse, disturbing the peace and public intoxication.

Those charges were dropped, but clearly are still in play in Fulton’s legal war with the actor. Hopefully an amicable resolution can be reached.
