Cage claims someone else tarnished his career

NicolasCage.jpgNicolas Cage has filed a lawsuit against his former business manager claiming that he has ruined his finances, and his suing him for US $20 million for negligence and fraud. This, of course, has nothing to do with his terrifyingly bad career choices.

Yet the star still managed to rake in US $40 million last year and still he's in financial trouble it would seem.

Quickly going through the alleged situation, it seems his business manager gave him bad advice and caused him to lose tons of money and ended up with a claim for US $6.6 million in back taxes from the U.S. Government. You read more about it over at Reuters who have the TMZ story without a single thought to link to the original story.

Still, a bill for US $6.6 million doesn't seem that much compared to earning US $40 million a year. Oh the lifestyles of the rich and famous.

The part that really caught my eye was this part of the story. In the lawsuit Nicolas Cage claims that his reputation had been...

”...irreparably tarnished.”

Wait just a minute, didn't you decide to play Ghost Rider? To dress up in a bear suit and punch a woman in the face in the terribly conceived remake of The Wicker Man, and oh I could go on and on.

I'm sure we aren't hearing all of the story, and perhaps there is some real wrong doing here, but at the same time, is any judge that knows anything about film going to take that comment seriously?
