Hours later, DailyMail.com would reveal that the pair had tied the knot in Las Vegas, with Nicolas’ ex-wife and son joining in the celebrations.

Cage, whose fourth marriage to Erika Koike ended after just four days in 2019, confirmed the wedding Friday and said they were enjoying newly-wedded bliss. 

‘It’s true, and we are very happy,’ he told DailyMail.com in a statement.

The bride wore a black handmade Japanese Bridal Kimono from Kyoto that required three layers.

She held a bouquet of yellow and red roses that offset her bright red lipstick, while she wore her long dark hair falling straight around her shoulders. 

Cage wore a black Tom Ford Tuxedo complete with a yellow rose buttonhole to match Riko’s bouquet. 

Riko walked down the aisle to her favourite song Winter Song by Kiroro before they exchanged traditional Catholic and Shinto vows with poetry from Walt Whitman and Haiku ‘sprinkled in’, a rep for Cage told DailyMail.com.

The happy couple were pictured surrounded by white candles and green foliage in the hotel’s Primrose Courtyard as the masked officiant Reverend Richard E. Walter performed the ceremony, before the newlyweds walked hand in hand back into the hotel.

After the wedding, the bride and groom, who met in Shiga, Japan, over a year ago, held a small celebration attended by Cage’s third wife Alice Kim – with whom he has remained good friends – and their son Kal.  

A state of Nevada marriage certificate obtained by DailyMail.com earlier Friday shows Riko has taken Cage’s name and is now known as Riko Cage.  

She is 30 years younger than Cage and four years younger than his first son Weston Cage.

Official documents show that Cage and Riko applied for their wedding license on January 10 – the day of Riko’s 26th birthday – and that it is her first marriage.

Cage was first spotted with Riko in February last year on a date in New Orleans.

They were seen together again in New York the following month.

Cage announced their engagement in an interview with his brother Marc Coppola’s radio show in August.

He said at the time: ‘She left New York and went back to Kyoto, Japan, and I went back to Nevada and I haven’t seen her for 6 months.

‘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.

‘I got her a black diamond engagement ring. Her favourite colour is black so she wanted the black gold, and the black diamond. I customised and personalised it and I actually sent it to her FedEx.’

Ceremonies at the Wynn Las Vegas wedding salons can cost between $1,590 for an ‘elopement affair’ and $29,990 for an ‘elegant affair’.

A brochure handed out by the venue states: ‘Your wedding plans may include a simple reception of cake and champagne or a seated multi-course dinner.

‘Whatever you choose, the catering staff at Wynn Las Vegas will assist you in creating a most memorable celebration.’

The venue has two indoor salons – the Lavender Salon and slightly smaller Lilac Salon – and an outdoor venue called the Primrose Court. Photos from Cage’s nuptials show the couple opted for the outdoor venue.

The wedding came less than two years since Cage notoriously asked for an annulment four days after his fourth marriage to Erika Koike on March 23, 2019.

The Leaving Las Vegas actor argued that he was too intoxicated to understand what he was doing.

He also claimed that Thai restaurant owner Koike did not tell him ‘the full nature and extent of her relationship with another person’.

Video footage of the moment the couple went to apply for their marriage license showed an intoxicated Cage screaming ‘She is going to take all my money’ and ‘Her ex is a druggy’.

Koike could be heard saying: ‘Baby I am not asking you to do this.’

Pics also emerged of the pair apparently having an argument outside the Bellagio just hours after they got married there.

Cage was granted a divorce from Koike in July 2020, according to official documents.
