Last week, I wrote an article about Alex Jones and his custody battle, and yesterday the jury reached a verdict on this battle. To make a long story short, Alex Jones lost custody of his children, but that’s a gross oversimplification.
According to My Statesman, the Travis Country jury ruled in favor of Alex Jones’ ex-wife Kelly. As of writing this article, the Jones children, aged 9, 12, and 14, will live with their mother, and their father will have limited visitation rights, at least until the children adjust to living with their mother. However, the adjustment process might be difficult, as Kelly Jones’ attorney Robert Hoffman claims Alex Jones committed parental alienation, i.e., he tricked his children into hating their mother, effectively brainwashing them.
“Mr. Jones is like a cult leader,” explained Hoffman. “The children appear to be cult followers, doing exactly what daddy wants them to do.”
Kelly Jones wants her family to participate in a program to undo the purported parental alienation. Furthermore, Kelly Jones’ lawyers are trying to take away all of her ex-husband’s visitation rights, as they feel contact with him could undermine attempts to undo the brainwashing. And, in the state of Texas, parental alienation is a serious allegation and can affect the outcome of a custody battle.
Kelly Jones feels that the case was a victory for all parents whose children are subjected to parental alienation. “I am so grateful to God that he has kept me and my family strong through this,” stated Kelly Jones. “I just pray that from what’s happened with my family people can really understand what parental alienation syndrome is and get an awareness of it and we can stop this from happening in the future.” She is also thinking of writing a book on the subject to help spread awareness of parental alienation.
While Alex Jones just finished his custody case, he is already embroiled in another court case. The owner and founder of Chobani Greek Yogurt, Hamdi Ulukaya, is suing him for slanderous and defamatory comments, accusing Jones of lying about Chobani intentionally hiring refugees who have tuberculosis and are more likely to commit violent assault. I have no doubt that Jones is questioning his chances of winning the Chobani case given the results of the custody battle. Depending on how many more people decide to sue Alex Jones, we soon might see the end of Alex Jones’ radio career, and by extension Infowars, in the very near future.
