Alex Jones’ personal spending has frustrated his family, who are trying to recover $1.5 billion from a judgment against him for claiming the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting was a hoax.

The conspiracy theorist and Infowars host pays his wife, Erica Wolf-Jones, $15,000 a month, according to the most recent expense report he filed in his bankruptcy case. He is paying what lawyers call “fraudulent transfers” to some of the shooting victims. family.

Jones says they are required under the prenuptial agreement.

In July, Jones spent $7,900 on household chores.

He spent more than $6,300 on food and entertainment, not including groceries, for a total of about $3,400, or about $850 a week.

“Alex Jones continues to spend money on excessive household expenses and a lavish lifestyle when it rightfully belongs to the families he has tormented for years,” said Christopher Mattei, the family’s attorney in Connecticut. That’s worrying,” he said.

“The family has become increasingly concerned and will continue to fight the case in court.”

In an Aug. 29 court filing, lawyers for the family told a judge that unless Jones reduced his personal expenses to a “reasonable” level, he would be subject to “further dissipation of his assets.” He said he would request that a judge be appointed. Either a trustee will oversee his spending or the bankruptcy case will be dismissed.

Jones told the Infowars show on Tuesday that he had done nothing wrong.

“If anything, I like going to nice restaurants. That’s my deal. I like to go on nice vacations a few times a year, but I almost didn’t get that in this fight.” “I think so,” he said, urging the audience to donate towards legal costs.

The Sandy Hook family last year sued Jones for about $1.5 billion in a lawsuit that repeatedly touted the false theory that the school shooting that killed 20 first-graders and six educators in Newtown, Conn., never happened. We won the case in court.

Relatives of the victims testified at trial that they had been harassed and threatened by Jones’ followers, who sent threatening letters, confronted the grieving families directly, and committed “acts of crisis” in which the child never existed. He was also accused of being a “person”.

But raising the astronomical amount is proving to be a long battle.

When Jones filed for bankruptcy, his family’s efforts to recover $1.5 billion in state court were put on hold while a federal bankruptcy judge decided how much Jones could actually pay his creditors.

Lawyers for the family said in court that tracking Jones’ finances was difficult because of the numerous companies he owned and the multiple transactions between those entities.

Meanwhile, Jones is still on the air.

He and his media company, Free Speech Systems, are seeking court approval for a new contract that would pay him $1.5 million a year, up from his current salary of $520,000, plus incentive bonuses.

The company also filed for bankruptcy protection last year.

Jones told Infowars on Tuesday that he owes more than $1 million.

If he gets the raise, he said, he would be left with about $300,000 a year after paying his legal fees.

“If you consider my expenses and what I have, it’s not a big deal,” he said.

“And I don’t care. I’m wearing a shirt I bought about eight years ago and I love it to death.”

Jones’ personal net worth is about $14 million, according to financial documents filed by Jones and his bankruptcy attorney.

His assets include a home valued at $2.6 million, a ranch valued at $2.2 million, a lake home valued at $1.8 million, rental properties valued at $500,000, and four vehicles and two boats valued at over $330,000. It is included.

According to court documents, Jones had nearly $800,000 in his bank account as of July 31.

Meanwhile, Free Speech Systems continues to rake in cash from the sale of nutritional supplements, survival supplies and other products that Jones markets to Infowars, according to a financial report signed by Jones in July. It is said to have generated nearly $2.5 million in revenue alone. Punishment for perjury.

The company’s total expenses for the month were approximately $2.4 million.

Meanwhile, members of the Sandy Hook family are pursuing a separate lawsuit alleging that Jones hid millions of dollars to protect his wealth.

One of Mr Jones’ lawyers called the allegations “ridiculous”.

Mr. Jones, who is appealing a $1.5 billion lawsuit against him, appeared for an affidavit in the bankruptcy case on Tuesday and Wednesday in his hometown of Austin, Texas, where Infowars is headquartered.

On Tuesday’s show, he denied any financial wrongdoing.

“I’m no Lex Luthor…when it comes to finances and life,” he said. “I mean, I’m a serious guy. I’m a good guy at Mayberry RFD.”
