Nicolas Cage -- One Broke Ass, Rich Ass Dude

5/3/2011 12:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Just because Nicolas Cage is in "financial ruin" doesn't mean he can't spend a BOAT-load ... or even a PLANE-load o' cash on his son Weston. Yep, Nic is one seriously broke ass, rich ass Cage.050211_TV_westin_still

let me let you guys in on a little secret... Nick's "real" last name is Coppola and he will NEVER be poor. His fam is so filthy rich that he could easily borrow millions at will.

How the hell are you rich and poor at the same time? That makes no sense.

If he is dishing out a lot of money for his son's wedding, he has to be getting it from somewhere, if not from himself.

Buckaroobonzai lists Francis Coppola as worth $100 mil. I'm sure he would lend nick whatever he wants for his sons wedding (as would any uncle in a loving fam).

Cage is in the Top 5 "Most Annoying". And he can't act either. He's gonna stay broke.

His LLC's may have gone belly up, and I'd bet that was all investors money, not his own. But his personal wealth is safely tucked away.

Why are you guys going back to this story? It was taken care of like two years ago! Johnny Depp even helped him pay it off, which I believe you guys reported on. The new thing about owing taxes on gifts took place during the same time the guy who was handling his money screwed him over and that's also in the process of being taken care of. By Hollywood standards, the money he owes for that isn't even that much! Have you not noticed how many movies he's done since his original problems? He's still a very highly paid actor and the movies he's in always do well. He has money. Why don't you post about Lindsay's money problems instead? She's the one with no money, but you're so far up her ass you'll never report on that, will you? Why are you targeting Nick all of a sudden? There are other people doing FAR FAR FAR worse.

I knew him in High school before he was famous and he was very nice. I have not seen him in over 30 years though. I do wish him the best.

Just re-watched Con Air!! Nick is great. I fell in love with him as an actor again. Nick needs to do more films like Con Air. If you haven't saw it or haven't watched it in a while you should go watch it! :)
