Alex Jones’ Ex-Wife Kelly: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

InfoWars host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones is currently engaged in a legal battle with his ex-wife, Kelly, over who should get custody of the three children they have together. Though Alex Jones has been famous (or infamous) for the better part of two decades now, Kelly Jones has mostly stayed out of the news before the child-custody battle. (Indeed, confirmed photographs of her cannot even be found.) Here’s five things you need to know about Kelly Jones:


1. She Says Alex’s Conspiracy-Ranting Persona is Genuine

Alex Jones is best-known as a conspiracy theorist who has claimed that almost every terrorist attack or mass shooting in the past couple of decades was actually orchestrated by the U.S. government for nefarious reasons. A partial listing of such Jonesian claims includes: the 2016 Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida was a “false flag terror attack”; the 2012 mass murder of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut was “synthetic, completely fake, with actors”; the series of tornadoes that devastated parts of Oklahoma in 2013 happened because “of course there’s weather weapon stuff going on—we had floods in Texas like 15 years ago, killed 30-something people in one night. Turned out it was the Air Force”; the attacks on the Islamic Cultural Centre in Quebec City earlier this year, as well as the 1995 Oklahoma City bombings, were both “false flags”; the 2015 mass murder at a church in Charleston, South Carolina was a government plot intended to discredit conservatives; and, of course, the 9/11 terrorist attacks were a false-flag inside job.

At a pretrial hearing last week, Alex Jones’ attorney Randall Wilhite told District Judge Orlinda Naranjo that his client’s public persona as a conspiracy theorist should not viewed as evidence of what Jones is actually like because, according to Wilhite, Jones is merely “playing a character. He’s a performance artist.”

But Kelly Jones says that the angry conspiracy theorist of InfoWars is the real Alex Jones. According to the Austin American-Statesman, Kelly Jones testified at that pretrial hearing that her ex-husband is “not a stable person …. He says he wants to break Alec Baldwin’s neck. He wants J-Lo to get raped. … He broadcasts from home. The children are there, watching him broadcast.”


2. She’s Long Been the Target of Anti-Semitic Vitriol

Long before she and Alex divorced – let alone fought for custody of their children – Kelly Jones has inspired online rage among those who insist that Jewish people are inherently evil.

For example: in March 2013, Alex Jones posted a brief video to InfoWars showing the poisonous “giant Texas red-headed centipede” he’d found in his bathroom one morning. Anybody living in Texas or any other Deep South state knows that the warmer parts of the United States play host to a wide variety of large, nasty bugs – and Jones himself did not blame his multi-legged visitor on any shadowy conspiracy groups, though when he posted the video to InfoWars, he did include the snarky caption “To [sic] bad the Toilet Safety Agency (TSA) was not there to protect Alex and his family.”

Yet the anti-Semitic website Corruptico (link goes to an archive) watched the video and concluded that Kelly Jones planted the centipede in order to kill her husband and make it look like an accident. “Alex’s Jewish wife is sinisterly trying to kill him by making it look ‘natural.’ … If Alex foolishly continues to do reports regarding the discovery of potentially killer centipedes in his home as a normal course of Texas living, we will all become immune to the dangers being imposed on his life… until the night his Jewish wife gets it ‘right.’”

More recently, when the Austin American-Statesman reported some of Kelly Jones’ testimony in her child-custody battle, the neo-Nazi website Daily Stormer (archive link) sneered that it was “just another Jew lie from the Jew wife.”


3. Alex Jones’ Attorneys Claim She is Emotionally Unstable

With Kelly Jones testifying that Alex Jones’ unstable InfoWars persona is the real deal, it is perhaps not surprising that Alex Jones’ attorneys made the opposite argument: Alex is a good parent, while Kelly has emotional problems making her an unfit mother.

The Austin American-Statesman reported on April 18 that during the day’s trial proceedings, Alex Jones’ attorney David Minton argued that his client did not display his InfoWars persona in front of his children. Minton also said that the Jones’ 2015 divorce settlement established that Alex would be the children’s primary parent with Kelly Jones allowed limited supervised visitation. Minton also said that Kelly Jones could have earned more time with her children, except her unstable behavior did not justify this.

However, Kelly Jones’ attorney Bobby Newman countered that his client is a devoted mother whose emotional episodes were merely a consequence of dealing with Alex’s attempts to drive a wedge between her and her children.

Charlie Warzel, a BuzzFeed technology reporter live-tweeting from the trial, said that Trey Gilbert, a former mental health counselor for Kelly Jones, testified that during an April 2015 session, Kelly claimed that Alex “was verbally, emotionally and sexually abusive” to her, and that Gilbert believed that she was telling the truth, based on her composure, behavior and other factors.


4. The Judge Imposed A Gag Order on Both Litigants in the Custody Trial

Though the media has been covering the Jones v. Jones custody trial, Alex and Kelly Jones, along with their respective attorneys, are forbidden from making public comments because the judge imposed a gag order on all parties.

After news first broke that Alex Jones’ own attorney claimed he was merely a “performance artist” on InfoWars, Jones made and released two videos – one recorded in his car as he drove to court that morning, then a more formal one made on the InfoWars set and released that night – obliquely addressing his lawyer’s claims. The morning video, which Jones released on his Facebook page and later took down (but not before RightWingWatch captured and saved a copy) showed Jones insisting he’s not a fake: “I am completely real and everybody knows it.”

In the evening video released on InfoWars, Jones argued it was the media (as opposed to his own hired legal team) claiming that Jones’ InfoWars persona is a fake. “They play these semantical lawyer games, ladies and gentlemen. It’s ridiculous.” Jones neglected to mention that the media reports of such claims were merely quoting what his own attorney argued in court.

According to the Austin American-Statesman, Kelly Jones’ attorney Robert Hoffman argued in court that Jones’ remarks on those videos seemed like a violation of the gag order the judge imposed on the case.

That said: Alex Jones’ attorney Randall Wilhite had already accused Kelly Jones of violating the gag order by allegedly spending Easter Sunday on the phone with reporters.

The American-Statesman reports that Judge Naranjo intends to look at cellphone records for Alex and Kelly Jones to search for possible gag-order violations.


5. Kelly Jones’ Monthly Alimony is $43,000

Robert Hoffman, lead counsel for Kelly Jones’ legal team, argued at a pretrial hearing that Alex Jones’ legal team was deliberately dragging out the proceedings in hope of driving Kelly Jones into bankruptcy. “They’d like to drag it out for two years, and she’ll be crushed and she’ll be bankrupt,” Hoffman said, according to the American-Statesman.

Though Kelly Jones currently receives $43,000 per month in alimony from Alex, Hoffman said she already owes his firm about $200,000 in legal costs for their work in the custody trial.

However, Judge Naranjo rejected a motion from Kelly Jones’ lawyers requesting more money from Alex. The American-Statesman quoted Naranjo as saying that the average juror is “not going to believe the amount of money that has been spent on this [trial] …. This case is not about Infowars. But, for some reason, this family has done very well. Otherwise, there wouldn’t be five lawyers on one side of the table and three over here, because of the business this family is in.”

USD43k a month!!! Wow. American divorce system is weird. Why is the female spouse entitled to so much? Does sleeping with a man worth that much? The wife should get nothing if she voluntarily chooses to leave when there is an absence of abuse etc. Shameless gold digger. If she “earns”43k a month,why is she owing the law firm 200k? Lol is the heeb lawyer an idiot for not collecting his fees or is this an organised plan to discredit and ruin AJ since hes Pro Trump? Why all this now?

Stay strong Alex.

Not sure how alimony was calculated in the Jones case (divorce laws vary not only from state to state, but from county to county within a state), but where I live, factors considered in calculating alimony include age, income, and education level of each party, and duration of the marriage. When I got married, my then-husband and I agreed that we would move cross-country so he could take a two-year position that would be a tremendous boost to his career. At that point, we were both earning about the same amount. I walked away from the great job I had, and the entire network I had built over 10 years to start from scratch in the new location, also knowing we would be there for only two years. Then, he got a job offer in a foreign country – another tremendous career booster for him, career disaster for me, but we chose to do it. Two moves later and with two kids under age five, we divorced. The usual formula for calculating alimony was used – no consideration for what I had sacrificed professionally over the years, to his advantage. The alimony I got amounted to about 15% of his annual income for 3.5 years. I think the alimony term for Kelly Jones is about twice that (BTW, she homeschooled their three children for years). It would help to know percentage of Alex Jones’s income the alimony amount represents, but I couldn’t find anything. Given we only know bits and pieces reported in the media, seems kind of harsh to pass a judgement of “shameless gold digger.”

LOL, because that is how marriage and divorce works, you jackass. He is making MILLION from selling crap to dupes like you. She actually deserves more. Texas being a backwater misogynistic state probably is not a community property state.

One thing to think about, for years, Alex savagely defended his wife against all those who commented on her Jewishness. He chooses to ignore all scripture regarding punishment Jehovah himself said he would dish on Israel due to them turning from his teachings and blessings. Well, per the state of israel, she is jewish, as are his children. Thus, if she grabs the kids, and heads for israel to aliya, they will all be granted citizenship, and Alex will not be allowed to take them home. Wonder if he still feels the same way now? She has no income, save aliimony which she is morally unentitled to, as she walked away. She does not work, and has no intentions to work. Why work, she can sit on her worthless a** and cash checks for his money?
