Nicolas Cage Gets Into a Physical Brawl With Motley Crue’s Vince Neil After Rocker Allegedly Attacks Fan

Yikes! Nicolas Cage got into a physical altercation with Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil in Las Vegas on Thursday, April 7. According to TMZ — which caught the tail end of their brawl on video — the Leaving Las Vegas actor, 52, confronted the musician, 55, after he allegedly attacked a female fan who asked for an autograph. 

Law enforcement sources told the site that Cage and Neil were inside the Aria Resort & Casino when a woman approached Cage. TMZ reports that Neil then allegedly grabbed the woman by her hair and pulled her to the ground.

The two got into a fight after Cage reportedly tried to restrain the “Home Sweet Home” singer, pulling him outside of the hotel and attempting to get him into an awaiting car.

In the video, Cage can be heard telling Neil to “Stop this, man!”

“I f–king love you! Stop this s–t now,” the Oscar winner tells Neil as another man tries to intervene.

Multiple news outlets report that Neil was cited for battery, but was never taken to the police station. It’s unclear what happened to the innocent fan.
