The Riches of Alix Bailey

How rich is Alix Bailey? As of mid-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $1 million, earned through success in her various endeavors. While she earned a lot of income through her art, her wealth has also been elevated thanks to her association with Louis C.K, who has a net worth estimated to be over $16 million.

Early Life and Education

While Alix was born in Washington, then her family later moved to New Haven, Connecticut before going to Italy; both of her parents were of Italian descent and were artists – painters – which would lead to her strong interest towards the arts. At a young age, she began taking painting lessons, and after matriculating from high school, she enrolled at Bennington College.

The school located in Vermont was founded in 1932 to find new approaches towards higher education. It was originally a women’s college, and became co-educational in 1969. It was the first college to include visual and performing arts as an equal partner in the liberal arts curriculum. After completing her undergraduate degree, she then enrolled at Indiana University (IU) to complete a Master’s degree in Fine Arts. The university is a multi-campus system, and has over 110,000 students enrolled in entirety during a semester. The biggest campus has over 46,000 students, and is located at Bloomington.

Painting and Acting

Bailey then focused her attention towards painting which many described as unique thanks to her long experience with the art form. Her works began appearing in shows in Italy, New York, and Connecticut. She is also a member of the Painting Center, and has her own studios located in New York City as well as in Taghkanic, New York State. Through her marriage to Louis C.K., she became involved in several of his film projects to support him.

She appeared in the comedy film entitled “Pootie Tang” which was released in 2001, and is based on a sketch comedy segment that appeared in “The Chris Rock Show”. It is a character which is a satire of stereotypes often portrayed in blaxpoitation film – the main character has an almost unintelligible language to the audience, but other characters in the film have no problem understanding him. She also worked on the project entitled “Tomorrow Night”, starring Chuck Sklar and Martha Greenhouse. Other comedians also appear in the film such as Steve Carell, Amy Poehler, and Wanda Sykes. One of her latest projects is the 2016 film entitled “Spooky Stakeout”, which stars her alongside Darragh Barron and Harry Behan.

Former Husband – Louis C.K.

Louis started his career in the 1990s, writing for comedians such as Chris Rock, Conan O’Brien, and David Letterman, and for other comedy shows. This later led to him creating his own short films, and eventually film projects such as “Pootie Tang”. In 2001, he released his debut comedy album entitled “Live in Houston”, becoming one of the first performers to offer direct sales of tickets to fan.

This has proved successful for him as he’s won numerous awards over the course of his career. He is the recipient of a Peabody Award and six Primetime Emmy Awards, as well as gaining numerous awards for his writing work and his stand-up specials. Some of his most notable projects include “Live at the Beacon Theater”, and “Oh My God”. He has also won the Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album twice. He’s worked in films as an actor as well, appearing in projects such as “American Hustle”, “Blue Jasmine” and “Trumbo”, as well as on his own semi-autobiographical comedy show called “Louie”, which aired from 2010 to 2015.

Personal Life and Social Media

For her personal life, it is known that Alix married Louis in 1995, though no details about how their relationship started have been shared publicly, although several sources stated that the two began their relationship prior to him becoming a successful comedian. They were married for 13 years and had two daughters – in 2007, the couple were experiencing a lot of problems with their relationship which led to marriage counseling, but it was unsuccessful, leading to a divorce the following year. The two settled on having joint custody of their children.

News outlets noticed that despite the two being divorced for years, they recently acquired a studio apartment in Greenwich Village, New York City which is valued at over $560,000; the reason for this partnered acquisition is not known and has led to a string of rumors. Despite their divorce, she has not made any comment about their relationship, nor has she been spotted in any new relationship. Louis on the other hand confirmed in 2018 that he is in a relationship with French comedian Blanch Gardin. One of the reasons why there is very limited information about Alix is due to her lack of any presence on major social media websites. She has a personal website though, which serves as a platform to promote her artworks.
