Alex Jones Personal Life
From 2007 to 2015, Alex was married to Kelly Jones. There are three of them. Kelly Jones filed for sole custody of their children in 2017 because of her ex-stranged husband’s behavior. She said that he was not a stable person, and she was worried about the safety of their children. His lawyer tried to make it sound like he was “playing a character,” like a “performance artist,” when he was really just acting. Jones has said for a long time that he doesn’t play a role on his show. Kelly got full custody, but Jones still gets to see the child.
Jones was pulled over in Texas in March 2020 and charged with driving drunk. The Travis County jail in Austin confirmed that he had been charged with a class B misdemeanor for driving while intoxicated. He was put in jail, but four hours later, he was let go on his own “personal recognizance bond.”
