Nic Cage’s 20-year-old son, Weston Cage, has been hospitalized for a mental evaluation. The actor’s son, a heavy metal musician, got into a violent altercation with his fitness trainer at restaurant “Farmer’s Kitchen” in Hollywood yesterday.
Apparentl, y Weston’s trainer told the rocker that he couldn’t order something off the menu and Weston went nuts and began to shove his trainer. The trainer and another individual tried to calm him down, but Weston became more aggressive even trying to kick the trainer.
Cops were called in and threatened to tase Weston if he didn’t get on the ground.
The police threatened him with a taser? All this over wanting to eat something his trainer didn’t allow? “Give me the bacon wrapped cupcakes or I’m going to loose my s--t!”
Weston momentarily complied but became violent again and the paramedics were forced to strap him to a gurney.
He was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and may be subject to a 5150 psychiatric hold.
Sources close to singer say that the lunch altercation may have been spurned by a fight between Weston and his wife earlier that morning that caused him to storm out of their house.
I guess Weston was just influenced by his dad’s recent revenge film career, “Drive Angry 3D” anyone?
Nic Cage has supposedly visited Weston in the hospital and plans to stay there as long as his son needs him.
He may not be making good movies anymore, but at least he’s making good with his son.
