Early life, education and early career
Alice Yung Kim was born on December 27, 1983 in Los Angeles, California, USA, but grew up in Seattle, Washington State. She holds American citizenship and is of Korean descent, but she has never revealed much about her life prior to her marriage to Nicolas Cage, including information about her family, childhood, and her education.

What is known is that prior to her fame, she tried to become a model but failed to achieve success, so she worked as a waitress while simultaneously wanting to pursue a nursing career. She is too mention that her aunt motivated her to try for a career in the entertainment industry.
Meet Nicolas Cage
In the early 2000s, Kim was a waiter at a nightclub called “Le Prive”, a rather large Korean-themed restaurant, and in 2004, when she was 21, one of the biggest names in the acting scene, Nicolas Cage, came to the restaurant, and apparently fell in love with her instantly when she was the one who came to serve him.
They became engaged within two months of meeting, despite the protestations of Alice’s mother, who was concerned about the lovers’ 20-year gap – but eventually gave her consent. In short, the story of how their marriage began sounds like a fairy tale.
The couple tied the knot at 30e July 2004, on Cage’s private ranch in Northern California. The wedding was scheduled to take place a few months later, but the couple brought it forward so they could travel together to South Africa, where Cage was filming “Lord of War.”
The couple welcomed their only child a year late, on the 3rded of October 2005, a boy they named Kal-El Coppola Cage after a fictional character from Cage’s favorite superhero comic book, “Superman”. The couple lived in a remote community near Summerly, Nevada, close to Las Vegas.
Marriage and beginning of acting career
Alice mostly remained close to Cage during the early years of their marriage. He helped her acting career, so she even appeared alongside him in some of the titles he starred in – like 2007’s “Next” and the same year’s “Grindhouse” where she played Lead Gong Girl.
However, the age and ethnic differences caused people to express doubts about the legitimacy of their relationship, but Cage insisted that he “made a firm decision” to marry in a different culture, and that he was prepared for all the difficulties that might entail. He also claims that he got married out of pure love and that he rushed the wedding date so that Kim could spend more time with him.
A few years into their union life, Alice retired from working professionally and became a full-time supportive wife and mother.
So just because, and to celebrate COLOR FROM SPACE!

Controversies and divorce
Despite being Nicolas Cage’s longest marriage, the relationship was not without scandal. Rather, they had several very public feuds that made this couple the “talk of the town.”
The most famous took place in April 2011, during the shooting of the movie “Medallion”, which made headlines when Nicolas was arrested after a public drunk attack on Alice. The allegations state that the actor was heavily intoxicated during an argument with his wife on the busy streets of New Orleans, after which he grabbed Kim’s hand and shoved her in front of several witnesses.
He resisted arrest and argued with the police officer who arrived on the scene before being taken into custody. He was charged with domestic violence and public intoxication and was released the following morning after $11,000 bail was posted. However, Alice refused to press charges or comment on the incident, so the charges were eventually dropped.
In June 2016, it was publicly announced that the couple had been living separately since January, and the couple divorced later that year. It was later revealed that the marriage ended due to allegations of cheating against Alice.
According to the unofficial statements published by RadarOnline.com, Kim has been caught cheating on multiple occasions, especially during the period when Cage was at the Cannes Film Festival in 2015. She was seen multiple times with an unnamed man in Nevada and the couple was even seen kissing. When the allegations got to the irate actor, Cage quickly ended the relationship, after Kim reportedly confirmed the gossip.
Despite the controversies, this remains Nicolas Cage’s longest marriage to date. Cage himself has stated multiple times that he never expected a divorce to come, and that he and Kim still keep in touch after it all.
On the other hand, Alice ever refused to comment on the matter and remained silent. Neither has publicly stated the real reason behind their divorce.
Alice usually keeps her private life hidden. She does not have any social media accounts, such as Twitter, Instagram or Facebook. However, she is often seen hanging out with her ex-husband the last observation happened just days after Cage divorced his fourth wife, Erika Koike. She remains a single mother to her and Cage’s son, and has not been publicly involved in a romantic relationship since the divorce. It doesn’t look like she’ll be continuing her short-lived acting career any time soon.
Alice Kim’s net worth is estimated to be over $1 million, largely derived from receiving post-divorce settlement payments, child and spousal support. Her ex-husband has one net value of approximately $25 million, as of early 2020.
Alice has a short stature and is 163 cm tall. She has naturally dark hair that she often dyes different colors, and has dark eyes, typical of her Asian heritage. She is very beautiful, an opinion shared by many, and her charming looks are probably why Cage fell in love with her in the first place.
