Nicolas Cage and Alice Kim are no longer a couple. The two announced their separation after no less than 11 years of marriage. Although the official announcement on the split has been made only now, Nicolas Cage and Alice Kim stopped being a couple in January.
The pair has revealed no details on the reason of their separation, only confirming that they decided to part ways. However, a rep for Nicolas Cage revealed that the physical split occurred at the beginning of the year. Nicolas and Alice have a son together, Kal-el Coppola Cage, who is 10 years old now.
The former pair first met back in February 2004. Actually, at the time when they met, Alice was a waitress at a restaurant in Los Angeles. Things evolved very fast between the two. So, about three months after they first met, Nicolas proposed to his girlfriend. The two wedded the same year, in July, at a ranch in northern California.
Nicolas Cage has always been very private about his personal life, but the star decided to open up about his marriage in 2013, during an interview with The Guardian. Nicolas seemed to be very happy with his wife. Alice is actually 20 years younger than the actor.
“You can connect the dots. And we did it because we loved each other,” the actor said during his interview. “I made a very clear decision to marry out of my own zip code. I mean, way out of my own zip code. I married into another culture, and it’s interesting because in Korea they call me the Son-in-Law,” the Hollywood star added.
Well, this is not the first marriage for Nicolas Cage that ends in divorce. Actually, this is the third divorce for the popular Hollywood star. Nicolas Cage has previously been married to Lisa Marie Presley and Patricia Arquette. The marriage to Elvis’ daughter, Lisa Marie, began in 2002 and lasted only two years, the pair separating in 2004. However, Patricia Arquette has been Nicolas’ first wife. The two wedded in 1995 and divorced back in 2001.
