4. Louis CK and Alix Bailey were husband and wife for 13 years

Alix Bailey and Louis CK became husband and wife in 1995 after a long time of dating. The pair were together from the beginning. They met before Louis CK had any real fame, and they were together for the rollercoaster of success that Louis CK experienced as he was sky-rocketed to fame in the 2000s. Louis CK and his wife Alix Bailey gave birth to their first child in 2002. The pair named her Kitty, and enjoyed their daughter immensely. Alix Bailey and Louis CK decided to give their children Louis CK's original last name, Szekely. Their second daughter, a bundle of joy, came just three years later in 2005. The husband and wife named their second daughter Mary Louise. The daughters are now 15 and 12. After 13 years, in 2008, the pair divorced amicably. There were no dramatic news headlines following their divorce, and they kept their relationship largely private. Recently, Louis CK admitted a number of terrible claims made by women that he made uninvited and inappropriate sexual advances towards women. Five women came forward, including one who was not comfortable having her identity known. The women expressed the predicament they faced as a powerful, successful man was coming onto them in such uncomfortable and inappropriate ways. At one point, he took off all of his clothes and began masturbating in front of her. She was wildly uncomfortable and shocked by the experience. Louis CK admits that he has a problem, and expresses regret over his actions. Alix Bailey has not made a statement concerning this issue. Alix Bailey has attempted and succeeded in keeping her life as private as possible. This ensures the privacy of her children and herself. Though Alix Bailey did not put out a statement, Sarah Silverman spoke on the topic on her Hulu TV show, "I Love You, America." She has been a long time friend of Louis CK, and she addressed the conundrum we face when we love someone who has done bad things. Sarah Silverman expressed what a great father Louis CK is, she expressed her love for her friend of over 25 years, and she explained that things will get better. Though his image has been tarnished, Louis CK now has an opportunity to get the help he needs.

"The power I had over these women is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly. I have been remorseful of my actions. And I’ve tried to learn from them. And run from them. Now I’m aware of the extent of the impact of my actions."

Louis CK expressed remorse in the statement he put out the day after allegations came forth
