X17 EXCLUSIVE - Nicolas Cage Admits Son Weston To Rehab After String Of Bizarre Drug-Induced Tweets

Sep 16, 2011 05:29 PM


Following a series of bizarre, disturbing Tweets, Nicolas Cage's troubled son, 20-year-old Weston Cage, appears to be headed to rehab once again.

A source tells X17online that Nicolas went to a West Hollywood sober living facility this afternoon, to admit his son. The home is luxury halfway house called KLEAN, but it is NOT a full rehabilitation center (see a gallery of the facility below).

In the drug-fueled rant, Weston writes, "Came to a little while ago. Doc didn't put me to sleep. Gave me local anesthesia. Got a prescript. Was outta my mind on pain killers."

Requests to Nicolas Cage's reps for a comment on the story have not yet been returned.

He goes on to talk about snorting cocaine and killing a dog, as seen here:


Weston has a very troubled past, including multiple run-ins with the law and problems with drugs and alcohol.

Most recently, Weston checked into rehab after getting arrested on a felony domestic violence charge in July. According to his mother Christina Fulton's rep, he was to be in rehab for thirty days.

Then in late August, Weston's wife Nikki changed her Facebook status from "Married" to "It's Complicated" and wrote:

    “My husband is going back to rehab.This is so hard for me. Please pray for him so that he will see the light and be the man that I fell in love with again. Alcoholism is an ugly disease. It breaks my heart to see him this way, but a woman can only take so much. I hope he makes the right choice and stays sober not only for me, but most importantly for himself! I don’t want him to die.”

We caught up with Nicolas Cage shopping at Fed Segal around the same time his son, Weston, was having a breakdown at a restaurant across town.

Weston was with his trainer at The Farmer's Kitchen, and when Nic's son was told he couldn't order something off the menu, it set him into a violent rage, according to TMZ.

Cage blew up at his trainer and started pushing him and attempting to harm him, before the trainer took him down. Cops arrived on the scene and he was immediately taken to the hospital by ambulance for a mental evaluation, and possible 5150 psychiatric hold.

Nicolas Cage has rushed to his son's bedside at the hospital, where he will reportedly stay to help out as long as he's needed. We spotted the actor's car outside Cedars-Sinai last night.

Nicolas Cage Will Not Be Charged In Alleged Attack On Wife

May 6, 2011 08:30 AM

ncage050611.jpgNic Cage just got a lucky break!

The actor will not be charged for allegedly attacking his wife during a drunken argument in New Orleans last month, because the New Orleans District Attorney's Office investigators did not have enough evidence to go forward.

Cage's attorney Harry Rosenberg said in a statement: "We are pleased that the process led to the correct result, despite inaccurate media reports, and that Nick has been cleared and all charges have been dropped."

Cage was arrested on April 16 and charged with domestic abuse and disturbing the peace, after having a very heated argument in the French Quarter with wife Alice Kim, according to the New Orleans Police Department.

Cage was allegedly highly intoxicated as he grabbed Kim in a violent manner, and couldn't remember where he lived when police arrived on the scene.

Report: Dog The Bounty Hunter Posts Bail For Nic Cage

Apr 16, 2011 02:55 PM


Nicolas Cage was freed from a New Orleans jail this morning on an $11,000 bond after being arrested for domestic abuse ... and apparently Duane "Dog" Chapman was the one who posted the bail!

TMZ reports that Cage was sprung by his pal (who knew?) this morning after cops arrested the actor who allegedly got pushy when arguing with his wife Alice Kim over the address of their rental property.

Chapman's wife Beth tweeted just about the time Nic was sprung, "My guy just walked out of the jail damn New Orleans 8 hours holy cow that's a lot of time to process one guy."

The NOPD released a statement on the matter, saying:

    "Cage and his wife were standing in front of a residence that he insisted was the property the couple was renting. She disagreed, and Cage grabbed her by the upper arm and pulled her to what he believed was the correct address. There were no visible signs of injury on his wife's arm.

    The actor then began striking vehicles and later attempted to get into a taxi. At that point, an officer who had been flagged down by onlookers drove up on the couple, immediately observed that Cage was heavily intoxicated and ordered him out of the cab, which prompted Cage to start yelling. The officers subsequently took Cage to Central Lock-up."

Cage is scheduled to appear in court on May 31.
