UPDATE:

Nicolas Cage has released a statement about TMZ's reports, telling Wetpaint Entertainment: "Explicit photos of myself and Ms. Fulton simply do not exist and never have."

Original story:

Cover your eyes, world. Nicolas Cage reportedly has some X-rated photos, and they’re on the loose. According to TMZ, the photos feature 49-year-old actor “getting down and dirty” with Christina Fulton, the mother of his 23-year-old son Weston.

Law enforcement officers tell TMZ the intimate snapshots were allegedly stolen by a former handyman named Ricardo Orozco who broke into Christina’s home back in April. Along with the collection of photographs, four computers were also taken — a theft we actually understand.

Ricardo was arrested last month and charged with felony burglary, to which he pled not guilty. He’s currently being held on $1 million bail.

The images of Nic in his, um, more intimate moments remain at large, however, with police “actively on the hunt.” Really? How active would anyone be to see someone rattling the Cage?

In fact, sources close to Nic are saying the “hunt” is really just a fool’s errand as Nic supposedly denies such photos even exist. TMZ also points out that Nic and Christina have seen the inside of so many courtrooms over the years throughout their various relationship woes that “nude photos would definitely have come to light” if they did indeed exist.

Well, on the off-chance such pics do, we doubt they’re any national treasure.
