The 27-year-old has shown many behavioral issues because of which he has remained estranged from his famous father.


Nicolas Cage's 27-year-old son, Weston, has always had a troubled relationship with his father, which began ever since Weston was put on a psychiatric hold in 2011.

According to Hollywood Lifeon February 6, 2017, Weston again made the headlines after being arrested for driving under influence. He crashed his car near Los Angeles and was lucky to be alive, Hollywood Life reported.

Surprisingly, he had two accidents during the horrible incident. After the first crash, which was only a minor one, he tried to flee the scene but then ended up crashing into a tree that was only a mile down the road.


Back in 2011, Weston showed signs of troubled behavior by getting himself into a violent incident outside a Hollywood restaurant. Following this, he was admitted to UCLA Medical Center for his abnormal behavior.

The source reported that his mother, Christina Fulton, had requested the authorities at the medical center to keep Weston for two additional days.

She blamed that she did not want her son to be with Nicolas after the incident. "I do not want him in that care," she told CNN.


Meanwhile, Weston blames his mother for all his issues and troubles with his father. In a statement, given my Nicolas' lawyers, Weston revealed, "Any problem I have ever had is because of the relationship that I had with my mother."


Fulton replied to her son's accusations by stating that Weston was "under a spell." She added that her son would do anything that Nicolas wanted. She admitted that Weston really looked up to Nicolas, as reported by Hollywood Life.

In 2011, Weston was also arrested twice for domestic violence, along with his wife, Nikki Williams. Hollywood Life reported that the first time, Nikki had attacked the heavy metal singer with a bottle of alcohol.

The second time, Weston had suffered an injury which was later discovered as self-inflicted.
