Jeremy Renner, best known for his role as Hawkeye in “The Avengers,” is splitting up with his wife, Sonni Pacheco, after 10 months of marriage. However, their separation is scandalous due to claims of Pacheco that Renner stole important things from her. Read on for further details.
Just months after their secret wedding, model-actress Pacheco filed divorce papers on Dec. 5, 2014 to end her union with the Oscar-nominated actor. She specified the date of marriage, which was from Jan. 13 to Nov. 29, 2014.
The divorce process was complicated because Pacheco also filed court papers to get her “stolen” passport, social security card and birth certificate from Renner.
The Canadian model stated that their irreconcilable conflicts became the reason for the divorce. She demanded for the cancellation of their prenuptial agreement since it was based on fraud.
According to TMZ, she asked for the custody of their one-year-old child, Ava Berlin, spousal support, Renner paying her moving and rental expenses and making their Range Rover her property.
However, Pacheco also granted Renner joint legal custody and visitation.
The pair had a quiet relationship, and Renner announced their union eight months after the wedding.
In an interview with Capitol File magazine for his film “Kill the Messenger,” Renner explained that the reason for the late announcement of their marriage was he tried to be private with his family, especially his wife. He did not want his fame to bother his wife’s daily activities.
“Privacy issues are important because I want her to go about her day without being bothered,” Renner told Capitol File.
He said he was okay with paparazzi, but documenting him with his family would be annoying.
Pacheco is two decades younger than Renner who is 43 years old. Their baby girl is Renner’s inspiration during his work. Renner claimed fatherhood changed his life, especially his priorities.
“It used to be for myself so I’m not old and broke. All these things I still do, but I do it now for the future of my baby,” Renner told Capitol File.
Renner has no comment yet about the split.
