AUSTIN (KXAN) — Kelly Jones, the ex-wife of bombastic radio host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, has addressed, what she is calling, the parental alienation her children faced in their father’s home.
Kelly Jones was awarded custody of her children after a public battle that may have revealed that Alex Jones is nothing more than a performance artist, a claim he has denied, despite his legal team using it as his defense.
In closing arguments, Kelly Jones’ attorney told jurors the radio personality is a “cult leader” who’s turning their children against his ex-wife. Earlier, Alex Jones’ attorney told the jury the children, ages 9, 12 and 14, are thriving under Jones’ care and he should remain the sole caregiver.
Kelly Jones told media Monday that she is ‘overjoyed’ her children will be coming home, saying that because of parental alienation, their memories may have been altered in a sort of brainwashing.
“They have a new perception of you, your authority has been so undermined by the alienating parent, that they don’t even recognize you as an authority figure or a parent at all,” Kelly Jones said.
She claims experts turned a blind eye to their suffering and “forced her into the equivalent of 40 years of therapy and granted a visitation schedule that is worse than that of drug addicts, alcoholics and even sex offenders.”
Kelly Jones announced the start of SplitCity.com, where she hopes her custody battle will help other parents who may be dealing with a parental alienation case.
