DIMMU BORGIR Frontman, NICOLAS CAGE's Ex-Girlfriend Postpone Wedding

September 17, 2008

DIMMU BORGIR frontman Stian Tomt Thoresen's (a.k.a. Shagrath) wedding to actor Nicolas Cage's 41-year-old ex-girlfriend Christina Fulton, which was scheduled to take place this Saturday (September 20) in a private sunset ceremony at the world-renowned Prekestolen in Norway, has been postponed indefinitely.

"We both have very hectic schedules, with Christina's upcoming reality show and [DIMMU BORGIR's] new DVD, which is coming out this fall. There was simply too much going on at the same time," Thoresen, 31, tells the Norwegian newspaper VG.

A new date for the wedding has not yet been set, but Thoresen insists that the couple is still planning a big ceremony. They will be married in both the U.S. and Norway, and plans are still afoot for a spectacular wedding at Prekestolen.

"We will probably have a small wedding in the United States, but we will still get married at Prekestolen, with close friends and family members present," the singer tells VG. "And then the the party will take place at another location."

According to Thoresen, his two bands — DIMMU BORGIR and CHROME DIVISION (in which he plays guitar) — will both perform at the party, which will be attended by several hundred guests.

When asked if the weather conditions at Prekestolen will affect their wedding plans, particularly as the temperatures continue to drop throughout the fall and the winter, Thoresen replies, "We might have a winter wedding. But in any case, the weather won't stop us. We are not your typical, normal people, Christina and I," laughs Thoresen.

Thoresen and Fulton met six months ago through one of the singer's associates. According to the couple, it was love at first sight.

"Fate brought the two together. It's absolute romance in its purest form, a fairy tale of a king and queen," said Fulton's son, Weston Coppola Cage, who was supposed to be giving away the bride. Cage's father, actor Nicolas Cage, was expected to attend the ceremony, along with celebrity participants Rob Zombie, Jim Carrey, Patricia Arquette, and Marla Maples.

Weston Coppola Cage recently spent time in Sweden recording the debut album of his black metal band EYES OF NOCTUM at Studio Fredman with acclaimed producer Fredrik Nordström (DIMMU BORGIR, IN FLAMES, HAMMERFALL). Norwegian drummer Hellhammer (MAYHEM, DIMMU BORGIR) and Swedish multi-instrumentalist Snowy Shaw (THERION, DREAM EVIL, KING DIAMOND, MERCYFUL FATE, MEMENTO MORI, NOTRE DAME) have recorded guest appearances on the CD, which will be released through Morbid Rose Records, a label managed by Fulton.

Fulton is best known for her role as "Nico", the lead singer of the VELVET UNDERGROUND in Oliver Stone's "The Doors". She has appeared in over 17 films, including Brian De Palma's "Snake Eyes", Abel Ferrara's "Dangerous Games" and the independent film "Lucinda's Spell", which earned her an award at Slamdance.

Fulton made her directorial debut with the premiere of the documentary film "When Giants Collide", which received overwhelming critical acclaim for its depiction of wrestlers and the sport of wrestling.

Weston introduced DIMMU BORGIR from the stage at the April 16, 2008 concert at The Grove in Anaheim, California.
