Nicolas Cage's troubled son Weston has posted a rambling message on his Facebook.com page suggesting he's ready to walk away from his brief marriage to Nikki Williams - for her own safety.
The Eyes of Noctum rocker and his wife of less than three months were booked on felony domestic violence charges on Monday (04Jul11) after complaints of a domestic disturbance at their Los Angeles home.
The couple is accused of becoming embroiled in a violent argument in the early hours of Monday, when songwriter Williams reportedly attacked her husband and cut his arm with a bottle. Cage is alleged to have responded with force, prompting their arrest.
Cage, who posted bail hours after he was taken into custody, has now opened up about his tumultuous relationship in a lengthy Facebook post, in which he hints Williams' "rage" is the root of their problems.
In a message on his profile, he writes, "This message goes to Family, Friends and Nikki's loved ones especially... i also made this for Nikki to read when I bail her out of the s**t hole we got ourselves into. I Promise That I Shall Not Rest Until She Is Out. I would even lie and say that i am a murderous wretch to get her out. i would do time in her honor even though i tried to save her life from her rage. I love you all and i love you Nikki.
"I don't know if being your husband is in the stars anymore for me. I have to think about it and really focus. I don't contain the ability that certain men do, the ability to abuse elders, women and children. I have three witnesses and video recording of me being calm."
Williams was still behind bars as WENN went to press.
