Jones was born in Dallas, Texas in 1974 and grew up in the suburb of Rockwall in Dallas and in the city of Austin, Texas. His career began in Austin with a publicly accessible cable television show in call-in format. In 1996, he switched to radio and hosted a show called The Final Edition on KJFK (98.9 FM).
Jones is not only a popular presenter and film producer of radio talk shows, but also known for his commitment to national sovereignty, anti-world government, the new world order, and other theories. He is also known for his views on traditional forms of politics. In 1999, he and his colleague Shannon Burke won the election for best Austin talk radio presenter conducted by the readers of the Austin Chronicle.
Although things went well, it was believed that Nichols used her media and PR skills quite extensively to help Jones expand his business and also helped him stage most of his publicity stunts. Her divorce was allegedly caused by Jones’s alleged affair with his Infowars employee, Lee Ann McAdoo.
Kelly Rebecca Nichols, Divorce
The story of the mother of three children cannot be complete without the ugly divorce battle that took place between her and her ex-husband. The couple officially divorced in 2015, with Nichols getting away with $43,000 monthly alimony and losing the custody battle to Alex Jones, who was granted full custody of their three children. The three children, including a 14-year-old son and their 9- and 12-year-old daughters, live with him in Austin, Texas, while his estranged wife has limited visiting rights.
However, it has been revealed that Nichols has recently applied for sole or joint custody of her children due to Alex Jones’s erratic behavior. She claimed that Jones was mentally unstable and had committed many crimes that required strict legal measures.
With his career as a conspiracy theorist, Jones is no stranger to controversy, and his public outbursts and unstable attitude are known to his viewers. Since their children live with him, Nichols fears that his negative behavior will play a major role in shaping their personalities.
Referring to this, Nichols said that he is “not a stable person”. He says he wants to break Alec Baldwin’s neck. He wants J-Lo to get raped. … He broadcasts from his home. The kids are there watching him watch TV.”
In the end, she did not win the battle for sole custody and settled for joint custody. Now she has moved on with her life and is holding back from the media.

While in April the rumor was widespread that Nichols had won the case to get custody of her three children, Jones immediately held a press conference on Friday, April 28, 2017, to confront the report, which he dismissed as fake. When he quashed the reports saying that he had lost the battle for custody, Jones made a public statement on NBC News saying
“I want to respond to grossly inaccurate media reports that I have lost custody of my children. My ex-wife went to court and asked to become the sole managing conservator of our children and to restrict me to supervised access. The jury strongly rejected her application for sole custody and left us in the same place where we began this terrible journey.
After the scandalous custody battle amidst several allegations, Nichols is maintaining a cautious lifestyle these days. For the past two months, she has kept her mother largely silent about everything concerning her private life, the divorce, the custody dispute, and of course her relationship status.
