Nicolas Cage's secret elopement to former waitress ALICE KIM has cost him $100,000 (GBP55,555) - after his furious ex-girlfriend insisted on a holiday to make up for his betrayal.

The HONEYMOON IN VEGAS star, 40, infuriated KRISTINA FULTON - mother of his son WESTON - for telling her about his wedding plans only a day before the big day last month (31JUL04) and reportedly handed over $50,000 (GBP27,777) for her holiday in Hawaii as an apology.

But Cage's spokesperson tells the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS that Fulton knew about the betrothal for months and it was all quite "amicable".
