Jones has three children with ex-wife Kelly Jones. The couple divorced in March 2015. Jones remarried to Erika Wulff Jones in 2017 and has another child with her. In 2017, Kelly sought sole or joint custody of their children due to her ex-husband’s behavior.
She claimed “he’s not a stable person” and “I’m concerned that he is engaged in felonious behavior, threatening a member of Congress” (Adam Schiff). His attorney responded by claiming that “he’s playing a character” and describing him as a “performance artist”.
On his show, Jones denied playing a character and he called his show “the most bona fide, hard-core, real McCoy thing there is, and everybody knows it”.
In court, Jones clarified that he generally agreed with his attorney’s statement, but that he disagreed with the media’s interpretation of the term “performance artist”.
Kelly was awarded the right to decide where their children live while he maintains visitation rights.
In April 2020, a state district judge denied an emergency motion by Kelly to secure custody of their daughters for the next two weeks after Jones led a rally at the Capitol, where he was mobbed by unmasked supporters and called COVID-19 a hoax.
His son, Rex Jones, has worked for InfoWars, receiving media attention for a video which was critical of gun control and BuzzFeed News.
On March 10, 2020, Jones was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated in Texas.
The Travis County jail in Austin confirmed that Jones was charged with DWI, a class B misdemeanor. Authorities said he was booked at 12:37 a.m. and was later released at 4:11 a.m. “on a personal recognizance bond”.
On December 24, 2021, Erika Wulff Jones was arrested on a domestic violence charge. In response, Alex Jones told the Associated Press in an interview that “I love my wife and care about her and it appears to be some kind of medication imbalance.”

Alex Jones 10 Fast Facts, Biography, Wiki
Alex Jones is a right-wing American radio host and prolific anti-government conspiracy theorist.
Jones rose from public-access television obscurity to national prominence by promoting paranoid allegations against the U.S. government and an alleged shadowy, power-hungry New World Order.
Jones has earned the vocal admiration of President Donald Trump and has claimed to be in contact with President Trump and administration officials.
President Trump has promoted a number of repeatedly disproven conspiracy theories advanced by Jones, including claims about President Barack Obama’s birthplace and allegations that millions of illegal immigrants voted in the 2016 presidential election.
Jones’s conspiracy theories have resulted in real world acts of violence and harassment.
Jones’s rhetoric has inspired action in the physical world.
Jones’s on-air persona is not demonstrably antisemitic, but he has featured antisemitic guests on his show.
White supremacists and other antisemites have expressed frustration at the absence of antisemitism on Jones’s programs and websites.
Although Jones has been banned from several social media platforms for spreading violent, bigoted conspiracy theories, he maintains a significant audience.
In August 2018, Facebook, Apple, YouTube, and Spotify removed podcasts, pages, and channels belonging to Jones and Infowars.
Alexander Emerick Jones is an American far-right radio show host and prominent conspiracy theorist. He hosts The Alex Jones Show from Austin, Texas, which the Genesis Communications Network syndicates across the United States and online.
Jones’s website, InfoWars, promotes conspiracy theories and fake news, as do his other websites NewsWars and PrisonPlanet. Jones has provided a platform and support for white nationalists, as well as serving as an “entry point” to their ideology.
Jones has promoted conspiracy theories alleging that the United States government either concealed information about or outright falsified the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting, the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, the September 11 attacks, and the 1969 Moon landing.
He has claimed that several governments and big businesses have colluded to create a “New World Order” through “manufactured economic crises, sophisticated surveillance tech and—above all—inside-job terror attacks that fuel exploitable hysteria”.
Mainstream sources have described Jones as a conservative, far-right, alt-right, and a conspiracy theorist. Jones has described himself as a paleoconservative and a libertarian.
A longtime critic of Republican and Democratic foreign and security policy, Jones supported Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential bid and continued to support him as a savior from an alleged criminal bipartisan cabal controlling the federal government, despite falling out over several of Trump’s policies, including airstrikes against the Assad regime.
A staunch supporter of Trump’s reelection, Jones supported the false claims of electoral fraud in the 2020 presidential election, and on January 6, 2021, was a speaker at a rally in Lafayette Square Park supporting Trump, preceding an attack on the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters.
Jones was born on February 11, 1974, in Dallas, Texas, and was raised in the suburb of Rockwall. His father is a dentist and his mother is a homemaker. He is of Irish, German, Welsh, English, and partially Comanche descent.
The family moved to Austin in 1991.
He attended Anderson High School, where he played football and graduated in 1993. After graduating, Jones briefly attended Austin Community College but dropped out.
As a teenager, he read conspiracy theorist Gary Allen’s book None Dare Call It Conspiracy, which had a profound influence on him. He described it as “the easiest-to-read primer on The New World Order”.
Jones began his career in Austin working on a live, call-in format public-access cable television program. In 1996, Jones switched to radio, hosting a show named The Final Edition on KJFK (98.9 FM).
While running for Congress, Ron Paul was a guest on his show several times. In 1999, Jones tied with Shannon Burke for that year’s poll of “Best Austin Talk Radio Host”, as voted by readers of The Austin Chronicle.
Later that year, he was fired from KJFK-FM for refusing to broaden his topics. The station’s operations manager said that Jones’s views made it difficult for the station to sell advertising. Jones said:
It was purely political, and it came down from on high […] I was told 11 weeks ago to lay off [Bill] Clinton, to lay off all these politicians, to not talk about rebuilding the church, to stop bashing the Marines, A to Z.
