Leaving for Las Vegas?

THURSDAY, DEC. 10, 2009

Nicolas Cage’s ex-girlfriend is suing him and a former business manager, saying she’s owed more than $13 million and a house.

Christina Fulton, who is the mother of Cage’s adult son, Weston, claims Cage promised her a home in Los Angeles, but that she’s now being ordered to leave the property.

She’s seeking the title to the house as well as money for debts she claims were caused by Cage’s former business manager, Samuel J. Levin.

Cage’s attorney said he has been giving Fulton $3 million a year, far more than the $6,000 per month he was required to pay her under a court order.

Fulton’s lawsuit is the latest in a string of financial woes for Cage, who stated in a $20 million lawsuit against Levin that he is being forced to sell properties around the world to make up for financial mismanagement.

Levin has countersued Cage, claiming he ignored advice to curb his lavish spending habits.
