Yesterday, Nicolas Cage's son, Weston, was taken to a local L.A. hospital after he got into a nasty brawl with his personal trainer in public and was deemed "ill."
Nic reportedly was with his son in the afternoon, but in the evening, Weston was joined by his mother, Christina Fulton. Christina was spotted leaving the hospital looking fairly distraught and worn from the day's activities, but before she went home for the night, she lashed out at the waiting reporters, insisting that if it wasn't for Nic, her son wouldn't be in the hospital at all. She explained that Nic has been a terrible influence on her child and asserts that Nic is to blame for the whole sad situation.
Like father, like son? Perhaps, but considering that Weston may be suffering from mental illness, we're thinking no. That's not the sort of thing a father can instill in his child. Alcoholism maybe, but not this. But this isn't about blame. This is about Weston getting better - and we really hope he does.
