Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has been ordered to pay $45.2 million in punitive damages to the family of slain 6-year-old Jesse Lewis, one of the 26 people were shot dead in the Sandy Hook massacre. 

That's in addition to the $4 million the InfoWars host was ordered to pay yesterday. 

In his closing statement, the lawyer for the victims' families said: 'Alex Jones is worth almost $270 million that we know of.

Please take an amount that punishes him, and an amount that ensures he never does this again.'

This is the first of three trials that Jones will face in relation to his claims that the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting was a hoax. 

Two others are set for September, one in Texas and one in Connecticut, where the shooting took place. A total of eight families will be represented in the Connecticut trial.  

Alex JONES attempts to answer questions about his text messages asked by Mark Bankston (not shown), lawyer for Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis, during trial at the Travis County Courthouse Wednesday Aug. 3, 2022

 'We ask that you send a very, very simple message, and that is: stop Alex Jones. Stop the monetization of misinformation and lies,' Wesley Todd Ball, a lawyer for the parents, told jurors before they began deliberations.

An attorney for Jones, Federico Andino Reynal, asked jurors to return a verdict of $270,000 based on the number of hours Infowars devoted to Sandy Hook coverage.

The 12-person jury on Thursday said Jones must pay the parents $4.1 million in compensatory damages for spreading conspiracy theories about the massacre. That verdict followed a two-week trial in Austin, Texas, where Jones' radio show and webcast Infowars are based.

Victoria Beckham & Nicola Peltz collateral damage in clash between families

More On: brooklyn beckham Victoria Beckham in cold war with new daughter-in-law Nicola Peltz Nicola Peltz goes from blond to brunette, Brooklyn Beckham approves Brooklyn Beckham tries to show Nicola Peltz some love and more star snaps Brooklyn Beckham tattoos wedding vows to Nicola Peltz on his arm

It’s like Palm Beach’s own version of “Dynasty.”

Amid rumors of tension between Victoria Beckham and her new daughter-in-law, Nicola Peltz Beckham, Page Six is told the trouble within the Beckham and Peltz clans is more widespread.

“Victoria and Nicola are just collateral damage. It’s not just about two women — it’s two families coming together,” said one highly-placed Palm Beach source.

“It’s pretty obvious there’s an issue between the two families. Everybody needs to find their place. They’re just not quite connecting yet.”

The problems are not said to be between Brooklyn, 23, and his new in-laws, billionaire investor Nelson Peltz and his wife Claudia. In fact, Nelson’s is offering to back his son-in-law in whatever venture he wants. According to the source, the chatter in Palm Beach is that the young couple could create their own empire, á la Brooklyn’s parents’ “Brand Beckham.”

It’s believed that Brooklyn and Nicola, a 28-year-old actress, would love to follow in the Beckhams’ footsteps by launching clothing, beauty and perfume lines.

“There is a very deliberate move orchestrated by Nicola and her mom and funded by Nelson. There is a reason why Brooklyn and Nicola are now ‘Peltz Beckham.’ It’s all about branding,” the highly-place source said.

“I think that Nicola and her mom come up with ideas, Nelson can fund anything and he says yes! But for David and Victoria, it has to have some substance.”

Among the Beckham brands are Victoria’s fashion and beauty range, as well as David’s $139 million lifetime deal with Adidas, endorsements including Tudor watches and his own whiskey with Diageo Haig Club.

Earlier this year, the 47-year-old British soccer star, who co-owns the Inter Miami CF team, signed the biggest deal of his life, with Authentic Brands Group (ABG) — which will co-own and manage his global brand, DB Ventures. CNBC reported that the company paid $269 million for a 55% stake.

“The Beckhams are quite old-fashioned. They believe that everyone should make their own way up in the world,” said another source in the know. “Although they’ll always give their kids a leg up in terms of support and endorsement, they famously made Brooklyn work in a cafe to teach him about work ethic and to get some values. They were really keen to support his passion for photography, so they helped him get internships; then he got into cooking, and they’ve supported that.”

The Beckhams were unavailable for comment.

“There are cultural differences between the two families,” the source in the know added.

Reps for Nelson and Nicola did not comment.

Immediately after the wedding, Brooklyn, who has more than 14 million Instagram followers, changed his account handle to @brooklynpeltzbeckham, while Nicola is now @nicolaannepeltzbeckham.
