In 2004, Nicolas Cage, then 40, walked into a restaurant in Los Angeles where he met a young woman of 19, Alice Kim. Kim who was a fan of the actor worked in the Korean restaurant as a waiter.

Soon afterward, the two began dating and just after two months down the line, they tied the knot. According to the actor, they got married so that Alice could go with him to South Africa where he was shooting Lord Of War. More than that, he also revealed that the main reason why they got married was their love for each other.

The first time that her mother visited them, she told Cage that Alice was too young for him even before exchanging any pleasantries. It became clear to him that she did not support the union and he knew it would be an uphill battle.

Although that was the first marriage of Alice Kim who was 20 years younger than her then-husband, it was the third marriage of Cage. His first marriage was in 1995 to Oscar-winning American actress Patricia Arquette. By 2001, the marriage had ended in divorce.

The next marriage of Cage was in 2002 to singer-songwriter and the only child of Elvis Presley – the former wife of Michael Jackson, Lisa Marie Presley. The marriage between them only lasted 108 days before they parted ways and finally got divorced in 2004.

The marriage between Cage and Alice is blessed with a son, Kal-El Coppola Cage who was born in 2015. Kal-El who was named after Superman is also an actor who is popular for Teen Titans Go! To the Movies (2018).

11 years later and a son to show, the union between Kim and Cage ended in divorce. Before June 2016 when news of the divorce broke, the two had already separated. Cage revealed that the end of the relationship left him in shock because he was not expecting that it was going to end. According to some reports, the divorce was because Kim allegedly cheated on her husband while he was away working.

Despite what happened between them, they still keep in contact without any ill will towards each other. Since the end of their marriage, there is no indication that Alice Kim has dated anyone publicly. However, Cage got into a relationship with Vickie Park who had a restraining order against Alice Kim whom she accused of stalking her on social media and harassing her. She also alleged that Cage was also abusive towards her. However, in a statement released by the representative of both Cage and his ex-wife, they denied the claims.
