As Alex Jones continues recounting his financial troubles to his Infowars audience and appealing for them to purchase his products, newly-released documents reveal that his situation isn’t as dire as he portrays it. According to the AP, Jones’ net worth stands at approximately $14 million, and he spent over $93,000 in July alone. This includes substantial amounts on dining out and entertainment. In his personal bankruptcy case, Jones and his lawyers submit monthly financial reports. These reports have drawn criticism from families of Sandy Hook Elementary shooting victims, who are still seeking the $1.5 billion they were awarded in lawsuits against Jones for repeatedly claiming that the 2012 massacre was a hoax. Christopher Mattei, a lawyer for the families, stated, “It is disturbing that Alex Jones continues his extravagant lifestyle when that money rightfully belongs to the families he spent years tormenting.”
Lawyers representing the families recently filed a court document on August 29, stating that if Jones does not reduce his personal expenses to a “reasonable” level, they will request the bankruptcy judge to take action—such as barring him from wasting more of the estate’s assets, appointing a trustee to oversee his spending, or dismissing the bankruptcy case altogether. On his Infowars show, Jones defended his actions, claiming that he has done nothing wrong and that he enjoys dining at high-end restaurants. Urging his audience to donate money for his legal expenses, he asserted, “If anything, I like to go to nice restaurants. That is my deal. I like to go on a couple of nice vacations a year, but I think I pretty much have earned that in this fight.” In July, Jones spent over $93,000, a significant increase from nearly $75,000 in April. This amount included his monthly payment of $15,000 to his wife, Erika Wulff Jones, which the Sandy Hook families’ lawyers refer to as “fraudulent transfers.” Jones, however, maintains that these payments are mandatory under a prenuptial agreement.
Jones’ expenditure in July also encompassed $7,900 for housekeeping, over $6,300 for meals and entertainment (excluding groceries), totaling almost $3,400—or approximately $850 per week. Additionally, he spent nearly $6,700 on his second home, a Texas lake house, which includes maintenance and property taxes. His vehicles and boats accounted for another $5,600, covering insurance, maintenance, and fuel. The Sandy Hook families were awarded the $1.5 billion judgment against Jones last year due to his continuous promotion of the false theory that the school shooting was fabricated and did not occur. However, actually obtaining the sum has proven to be a lengthy process. Once Jones filed for bankruptcy, the families’ attempts to collect the money were put on hold as a federal bankruptcy court judge determines how much Jones can realistically pay his creditors.
The families’ lawyers have faced challenges in tracking Jones’ finances due to the numerous companies he owns and the various deals among those corporate entities. Meanwhile, Jones continues his broadcasting activities. He and his media company, Free Speech Systems, are currently seeking court approval for a new contract that would increase his salary to $1.5 million per year, along with incentive bonuses—an increase from his current salary of $520,000 per year. The company filed for bankruptcy protection last year. On his Infowars show, Jones mentioned that he is over $1 million in debt. If he receives the proposed salary increase, he claims that he would be left with only around $300,000 per year after covering his legal expenses. He remarked, “With all my expenses and things, that’s nothing. And I don’t care about that. I’m wearing a shirt I bought, like, eight years ago, and I love it to death.”
