The Riches of Alix Bailey?
How rich is Alex Bailey? As of mid-2018, sources estimate a net worth that is over $1 million, mostly earned through success in art, but also her other endeavors. Her wealth was also elevated during her association with Louis C.K. who has a net worth that is estimated at $35 million. As she continues her career, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and EducationAlix grew up in New Haven, Connecticut, in a family that had a real appreciation for the arts, as her parents were both artists. During her childhood, she also spent a significant amount of time with them in Italy. At a young age, she was already taught how to paint, so her passion began at an early age. She would go on to study painting at Bennington College.
After graduating from Bennington, she then went on to complete a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts at Indiana University. Her popularity as a painter started to grow significantly, with her works began being showcased in various locations such as Italy, New York, and Connecticut, and her style compared with other popular artists of the past. She also became a member of the Painting Center, and set up her own studios, in New York City as well as in Taghkanic, New York State, from which she often paints.
Louis CK and Acting Career
Bailey met Louis CK sometime during her career, and they dated for some time before getting married in 1995 – they were in a relationship before Louis had found any fame in film and comedy circles. A few years later, she forayed into an acting career herself, and appeared in the 1998 film entitled “Tomorrow Night” which was directed and written by CK, and featured numerous comedians including the first on-screen appearance of Amy Poehler. The two continued to collaborate together in various projects, to which Bailey contributed in various forms, whether acting or art.
In 2001, Louis would write and direct another film, entitled “Pootie Tang” which was based on a sketch that appeared in “The Chris Rock Show”. The film was meant to be satirical in nature, and Alix would contribute art for the film, and during this time, her husband’s popularity would skyrocket. Soon after they would have a child, and in 2005 they had their second daughter. However, in 2008 the couple decided to divorce, but no details were shared regarding the reason, as they kept their relationship away from the media. The two have apparently remained on good terms, and share custody with their children. They also still own an apartment together.

Louis CK Controversies
Later on after their marriage, numerous controversies about Louis started to appear through various sources. He was early on known to be a controversial person, from having made remarks against the Catholic Church, but then the media broke the news that numerous women had started coming accusing Louis of making sexual advances towards them. He would go on to admit that he had a problem, and expressed regret over her actions. The events caused a backlash in Alix’s career, although Louis went on to say that now he is aware of the impact of his actions.
He was defended by several comedians including Sarah Silverman, who spoke on the program “I Love You, America” that she is close friends with him and knows that he is a great father, but at times, people we love do bad things. Regardless, Louis has gone on to create his own television show entitled “Louis” which is based on his real life experiences. However, the show also sparked controversy when an African-American woman was cast in the role based on his ex-wife Alix; he stated that they hired her because she was the best woman for the job.

While Bailey and her ex-husband have left their married relationship behind them, Louis admitted that they are still a big part of each other’s lives. She has been away from the media spotlight as has been the case for a major part of her career. In keeping in line with her privacy, she doesn’t own any accounts in the major social media websites including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. She continues her own painting work and promotes her painting through her personal website – alixbailey.com.
