Who is Alex Jones’ ex-wife, Kelly Rebecca Nichols?

Born July 2, 1968, Nichols, 52, is an animal rights activist.

According to Just Richest, Nichols works as PETA’s head of media operations and public relations.

Nichols eventually met and married Jones in 2007 and they have three children together.

The 52-year-old used her media and public relations experience to promote Jones’ website, InfoWars.

The couple divorced in 2015 and two years later she filed for 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’s engaging in criminal behavior and threatening a member of Congress.”

Nichols was given the right to decide where their children live, while Jones retained visitation rights.

Why was Alex Jones ordered to pay punitive damages?

Alex Jones wrongly called the shooting, which killed 20 children and six adults, a hoax orchestrated by the government to enact tougher gun laws.

As a result, on August 5, 2022, he was sentenced by a Texas jury to pay an additional $45 million in punitive damages to the parents of a first-grader killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre.

In total, he was ordered to pay $49.3 million, which is less than the $150 million initially demanded by parents, Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis.

The couple’s six-year-old son, Jesse Lewis, was among the victims killed in the deadliest classroom shooting in US history.

On August 4, 2022, Jones was also ordered to pay the family $4.1 million in damages.

Compensatory damages are intended to compensate the injured party for loss or injury, but punitive damages are awarded to punish an offender.

What did the family say about the court’s decision?

Attorney Mark Bankston, representing Heslin and Lewis, released a statement after the verdict was announced on August 4, 2022, saying, “Today we secured $4.1 million on behalf of Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis. Having already fined Mr Jones $1.5 million, the plaintiffs are now owed $5.6 million to be paid by Alex Jones.

“This does not include the punitive damages to be decided tomorrow [August 5, 2022] and other sanctions pending in court.

“Neil and Scarlett are delighted with the outcome and look forward to putting Mr Jones’ money to good use.”

He concluded, “Mr. Jones, on the other hand, will not sleep well tonight.”
