Alex Jones, radio broadcaster and founder of Infowars.com, and his former wife, Kelly Jones, were in court recently in a child custody battle.
Their three children had been living with Alex Jones. But the court awarded Kelly Jones joint custody with the right to make her home the children’s primary residence.
What surprised me about this story was that the reporting included the parties’ claims of parental alienation, brainwashing, emotional dysregulation and narcissistic personality disorder. These are all the issues that typically come up in custody battles with sociopaths — but that rarely get any attention.
Also — this was actually a jury trial. That is highly unusual in a custody case.
