Cape Town – A former South African woman is revelling in the Hollywood life this week – she married actor Nicolas Cage’s son at the weekend and a song she wrote was performed in the final of American Idol on Tuesday.
Nikki Williams, 22, who grew up in Port Elizabeth and whose father lives in Bloemfontein, married Weston Cage on a yacht on Lake Pontchartrain, New Orleans, at the weekend.
Her father, Attie Williams, didn’t attend the wedding, but Cage Snr was there.
Who is Nikki Williams, Nicolas Cage’s new SA daughter-in-law?
Teenaged American Idol finalist Lauren Alaina performed a song co-written by Nikki as one of her three final-round songs.
Attie Williams said Nikki showed her talent early, performing on the musical game show Noot vir Noot when she was 11. “We realised she was very talented and moved with her to Los Angeles,” he said. He returned to Bloemfontein about five years ago.
He joked about having a famous actor in the family: “I was watching a film on TV the other night and I SMSed one of my brothers-in-law to say my new brother-in-law is on TV!”
