Nic Cage -- Homeless in New Orleans

11/12/2009 3:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The number of homes Nic Cage owns is receding faster than his ... anyway ... because today, two of his homes in New Orleans are going up on the auction block.

Nicholas Cage
According to public records, Cage failed to pay the mortgage debts on two multi-million dollar properties -- and the bank eventually foreclosed.

The two homes were each estimated to be worth more than $3 million -- but as we all know, Nic is dead broke and couldn't pay his bills.

One of the homes, the LaLaurie mansion, is rumored to be haunted -- it'll definitely haunt Cage.

It is a shame that there are people out there that will take a mans hard earned money. I wish Mr. Cage all the best and hope he can get back at least some of his money that belongs to him. I have enjoyed Mr. Cages movies very much and think he is a great actor. I don't have much in this great world but if Mr. Cage was ever in need of a roof over his head there is one here. No strings what so ever. Good luck Mr. Cage.

In reponse to Ruth Gutierrez, I do have a photo that I took at the Lalaurie one night that has "something" that we did not see. I sent the photo to a professor at University of New Orleans that specializes in the paranormal and she verified that it was a photo of something paranormal. I'd love to share it, but I have no clue how to post a photo here.

All of you in doubt of the Lalaurie's history, Google it! The Lalaurie's (Mr. & Mrs.) were doctors who owned slaves, many slaves. They had a room in their home where they would perform all kinds of torture and mutilations. One slave woman had all arms & legs broken and reset to resemble a crab-like form. One night while having one of their elite parties, a fire broke out in the kitchen, firemen came, and while searching the house for fire, they opened a door and out ran a naked slave woman, so scared that she ran right through a second story window falling to her death on the street below, much to the party guests horror. The window was bricked up and remains bricked to this day. A 12yr. old slave girl was chased with a whip by Mrs. Lalaurie, then fell to her death from a 2nd or 3rd story balcony to the courtyard below, she is buried in that courtyard. Seriously, Google it!

There is a feeling around the house, even if you don't know the what happened there, you still feel a sadness, a darkness so to speak. The paranormal is something that us Southerners truly believe in. We're told these stories from childhood and I guarantee you that there's not a person from any part of the South who hasn't had some sort of paranormal experience, even if they don't want to admit it.

All that being said, I would love to see Ghost Hunters investigate the house. I'd also like to see the house restored & turned into a museum, that would be very cool.

To #48- devilgirl: What an idiot YOU ARE!! Nic Cage's father only just passed recently on October 27, 2009.

If you're going to call someone "idiot" please be sure you have your facts straight!

So how many roll royces did you buy and how can anyone afford the insurance on all those cars homes and planes. Maybe if he made a movie about his own investments going bad he could pay some of the debt off. Wow really and what was the total of homes in his name and why. The housing buble burst and down came the house of cards.
