:( Nic.....there must be something to do with actors when they hit this age because we've NEVER really had to read so much about all of our favs for years until now - EVEN Catherine Zeta Jones!

I guess when we all grow up with or without money, we hit a rock at some point, sadly, they just are in the limelight.

It is hard to deal with this post because my ex looks like Nic and my daughter LOVES both of them!

PRO US    

In some states, anytime a woman alleges domestic abuse, her husband or boyfriend is arrested, even if there is no evidence. We have no idea if there is any merit to these charges against Cage until the D.A. makes a decision to prosecute or not and then until there is a plea bargain or a court of law determines guilt or the lack thereof.

The charge is serious but Cage should be considered innocent unless and until proven guilty.

Why were his eyes closed in the mug shot? Was he on Ambien and liquor and sleepwalking while he was committed the offense?

Sounds like Nic Cage is imploding.

First the tax problems (that would send anyone over the edge) guilty or no.

Then you have CHUCKLES the clown ratting you out to a bunch of moronic audience members at his show"

Then more news of Tax evasion and probably learned he is going to jail...like the other dead beat tax evader actor did.

Is cocaine still a problem for Cage?

Gee, did Charlie learn how to handle women from Nic, or was it the other way around? Makes one wonder!

His life has gone downhill since the day he married Sushi. Maybe this is what will turn his life around for the better again. I sincerely hope so.

That's a mug shot ?. It looks like some midget took a photo of him inside a Home Depot.

So are mug shots taken in an underground tunnel of the New Orleans police department? What the hell kind of mug shot is this?

His wife? He's married to a stupid girl who's way too young for him, but that's no excuse. Get a divorce if it isn't working, but keep your hands off her!

O.K. Am I the only one reporting the fricking SPAMMERS on these stories?

Why aren't they removed?

What is the report button for other than to rid ourselves of these annoying Bullsh*t ads for counterfeit goods?.

Maybe the FBI should be monitoring the gossip sites...bet they could catch and jail a LOT of counterfeiters!
