Nicolas Cage's son, Weston Cage, found life very difficult during his early 20s. In 2011 he made headlines after police arrested him twice for domestic abuse.

At the time, the 20-year-old was married to Nikki Williams. However, they ended their relationship soon after that incident. Weston got himself in trouble soon after when he got beaten up by his personal trainer in a bizarre incident.

The youngster, who endured a challenging childhood due to his parent's divorce, had turned to alcohol to fill the void. According to Weston, he drank 30 beers daily and sometimes added a box of wine and hard alcohol. Thankfully Weston was able to turn his life around when he met blonde beauty, Danielle.

The pair fell in love shortly after they met, and their relationship impacted his life positively. Two days before their 2013 wedding Weston's joy doubled when Danielle informed him she was pregnant. The news stunned everyone in their room, and they were very happy for the couple.

One person who was particularly excited for the couple was Weston's famous actor father, Nicolas. While speaking to US Magazine at the Kasem Cares Foundation fundraiser, Weston said:

"My dad is ecstatic."

After the first years of marital bliss, Weston and Danielle surprisingly separated. Unfortunately, the divorce between the two was a bit messy, with Danielle getting a protective order against Weston. The singer had to stay at least 100 yards away from her during the proceedings unless it was a visitation with their kids.

After the breakup, Nicolas had to step in and help his son out financially. The actor stood in for his son by helping him pay for child support. The divorce was eventually finalized in 2018. Danielle was granted primary physical custody of the kids while Weston was allowed visitation.

Part of the settlement also included Weston paying $8,000 in family support monthly which is half of the $16,000 he receives from his father monthly. The family support payment included helping Danielle and the kids with car payments and health insurance.
