The Infowars creator has filed for bankruptcy after being ordered by courts to pay approximately $1.5 billion in damages to Sandy Hook families harmed by his conspiracy theories.
Jones reportedly put his wealth at $1 to $10 million and his debt at $1 to $10 billion, according to The Washington Post.
Victims’ families say the star is claiming he is broke to avoid paying the sentences.
Eight families of Sandy Hook victims have accused Jones of using his platform to spread baseless conspiracy theories about the 2012 school shooting that killed 20 children and six adults. The court ruled in their favor and ordered Jones to pay the plaintiffs $965 million in damages. For years, Jones claimed the Sandy Hook mass shooting was a hoax. During the trial, he admitted the shooting wasn’t a hoax, but it was too late.
