Nicolas Cage, Son Weston Share Domestic Troubles

David Livingston/Getty Images(NEW ORLEANS) -- In the case of Nicolas Cage and his son Weston Cage, it seems the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

The son was arrested on Monday for domestic violence, less than three months after his father faced similar charges.

Now Weston, 20, has dropped two bombshells. Not only is his wife, Nikki Williams, a 22-year-old singer, pregnant, but he's getting a divorce, he announced on his Facebook page Wednesday morning.

His announcement follows a turbulent weekend, in which the newlyweds -- they were married in April during a quickie ceremony in New Orleans -- were both arrested for domestic violence on July 4.

According to TMZ, Williams allegedly cut Cage on the arm with a broken bottle, punched him wildly and threatened to jump off the balcony. The website reported that there were visible injuries on both.

Initially after he was released on $50,000 bail Tuesday, Weston Cage professed his love for his wife on Facebook, chalking up the whole mess to "a huge misunderstanding" that occurred "because of alcohol."

By Wednesday, it was unclear if Williams had been released from jail. He asked his Facebook friends to vote on whether or not he should get a divorce before posting, "made my choice/getting divorced."

Weston also updated his status from "married" to "it's complicated."

His father has also been dealing with his share of marital troubles.

On April 16, Nicolas Cage was arrested in New Orleans for domestic abuse, disturbing the peace and public drunkenness after an allegedly aggressive outburst.

According to police, the actor was heavily intoxicated and violent as he argued with his wife, Alice Kim, in a tattoo parlor and on the street. He pushed her, and later, punched a few cars. According to People, Cage's son, 5-year-old Kal-El, fell and scraped his knee in the midst of the chaos and a child-abuse detective was called to the scene. No charges were filed in that case.
