Weston Cage, Nic Cage’s Son, Admitted To Psychiatric Hospital
Marriage may just be driving Weston Cage nuts. The 20-year-old son of troubled Oscar winner Nicolas Cage has been admitted to the psychiatric ward of a Los Angeles hospital after his first major blowout with his wife of one month prompted him to spazz out and attack his personal trainer in a fit over being denied a post-workout snack.
Nope — we don’t get it either.
On Tuesday afternoon, Weston Cage, a member of metal band Eyes of Noctum, allegedly “freaked out” and attacked his trainer at Hollywood restaurant The Farmer’s Kitchen, spywitnesses tell TMZ.com. We hear the melee began after Weston was told that he could not eat an item on the menu. The trainer put Cage on the floor, but the singer managed to wrestle himself free and continued to act bizarrely until police arrived and handcuffed him. The younger Cage was taken by ambulance was taken to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he’s reportedly being held pending a mental evaluation.
Kinda gives a new meaning to the expression, “The Apple Doesn’t Fall Far From the Psycho…”
By his side at the hospital is Weston’s famous dad, Nic. The 47-year-old is no stranger to trouble himself. In April, the Leaving Las Vegas star made headlines when he was arrested in a drunken stupor after a public argument his wife Alice Kim turned into a faceoff with New Orleans. Strapped for cash after allegedly being swindled by a former business partner, Nic had to be bailed out of jail by Dog the Bounty Hunter star Duane Chapman.
