Right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones defended criticisms of “opulent” spending habits during his bankruptcy, arguing that his creditors have cherry-picked a recent high-spending month to “distort the public’s perception” of his actions.

Jones, who hosts the radio and video talk show Infowars, said his expenses “may be somewhat higher than the average American,” but argued that his job duties “in an unconventional industry” require “additional support and costs that the average working American would not incur.” He accused critics of his spending of trying to push him off the air.

His statements, filed Monday in the US Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas, come as families of victims slain in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting seek to collect nearly $1.4 billion in damages Jones was ordered to pay them. A committee of his tort creditors in late August told the bankruptcy court that Jones’ spending has accelerated in recent months—growing to more than $93,000 in expenses in July.

Jones has spent more than $740,000 on assets not protected by bankruptcy since his December Chapter 11 filing, the creditor group said.

His July spending included $7,900 on housekeeping, $15,184 in prenuptial payments to his wife, $6,302 in maintenance and taxes for his vacation lake house, and $6,338 on meals and entertainment, according to court papers.
