The mother of Nicolas Cage's 19 year-old son Weston spoke exclusively with RadarOnline.com for the first time since filing a lawsuit against the actor and discussed her reasons why she took the action and what she's doing to move on with her life.
"I was devastated, things were in chaos," Christina Fulton exclusively told RadarOnline.com about finding out that she owed the IRS over $1 million and that she was being evicted from her home.
"We had an agreement," Christina gave as the reason she filed a $13 million lawsuit against Cage. "This came from a hard decision, a difficult decision for me and it wasn't easy."
"It wasn't like I woke up one day and decided to sue Nicolas Cage and Sam Levin," Christina explained. Levin was the business manager for both Christina and Nic. "I trusted Sam Levin."
Christina and Nic's son Weston has appeared in a movie with his father, Lord of War, and is a musician. "He is just amazing, he's such a magical kid," Christina said of her son.
The lawsuit alleges that Cage paid for all expenses related to her property as well as "personal expenses of Plaintiff Christina and Weston at a level of living that Plaintiff Christina had experienced from approximately 2001 to 2009, in the approximate amount of $3,000,000.00 per year."
"He's so intelligent and he's working on his album," Christina said of Weston. "At first I didn't get it," she said about his music. "His Dad and I were like oh!"
Christina spent the last 19 years raising her son and has returned to the recording studio to cut her own album and said her inspiration for the music was "the school of hard knocks! I've come from a hard life and it is really going to be my life story, the truth."
Famed music producer Jack Douglas is working with Christina and joined her in the Swing House studio where she gave RadarOnline.com an exclusive preview of her first single I Broke My Heart at Your Feet. "In the case of Christina's music, it really is coming from the heart, a place of truth," Jack said.
"I've had a difficult journey, it's kind of like an audio book really," Christina said of her new album.
Will she have a song titled Lawsuit? "Oh God, no! It would be a hit though," she joked.
