Nicolas Cage's former partner Christina Fulton has accused the actor of having a bad influence on their son Weston, blaming the Hollywood star for the rocker's recent hospitalisation.
The 20 year old was strapped to a gurney and taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles following an alleged violent outburst at a Hollywood restaurant on Tuesday (07Jun11).
The Eyes of Noctum star is said to have been subdued by police and later underwent a mental evaluation.
Weston's mother Fulton, who began dating Cage in the 1980s, has been overwhelmed with worry for her son and spoke out about the incident after visiting him in hospital on Wednesday (08Jun11).
Fulton appeared emotional as she was filmed telling Tmz.com, "My son is in trouble. He's in the hospital right now and he's under some really good care so that makes me very happy. But I'm pretty p**sed off because his father - he's affected by his father and that is why he's in that hospital tonight. That's all I have to say."
Los Angeles authorities are investigating the alleged altercation at The Farmer's Kitchen restaurant.
