Amidst high drama and heated battle, Jeremy Renner striked a settlement deal with estranged wife Sonni Pacheco. By acquiring a legal and joint custody of their two-year-old daughter Ava Berlin, Renner would have to pay $13, 000 a month in child support.
The Mission Impossible 5 actor, Jeremy Renner, can finally heave a sigh of relief after acquiring a 50/50 custody of his daughter Ava with his wife of ten months, Sonni Pacheco. Though he would have to pay $13k to Pacheco in child support, Renner will not have to pay for spousal support after he claimed that their prenuptial agreement was based on fraud.
Pacheco, a British Columbian, had earlier filed for divorce and sole custody of their daughter Ava. Pacheco, in the divorce papers cited irrevocable differences and claimed that the 44-year-old actor does not spend enough time with their kid. She also stated in the divorce papers that his house is extremely unsafe for a child so small.
The divorce and custody battle turned ugly after both parties began slamming each other with accusations. Renner’s good friend, Kristoffer Winters spoke on his behalf and accused Pacheco of being a negligent parent. He further alleged that Pacheco married Renner only to acquire green card.
In connection with the relationship that the couple shared, another friend of Renner was quoted by US magazine as saying, “It wasn’t traditional, but he was hopeful they could make it work for Ava.”
Renner was reportedly afraid that his wife would flee the country with their daughter and hence was reluctant to return Pacheco’s passport. While Pacheco demanded the “stolen passport” from Renner, his friend said that all she wanted was “independence.”
After the settlement, Sonni Pacheco’s lawyer said in the court Wednesday that there could be more issues to be raised. However, Jeremy Renner’s lawyer, Laura Wesser made it clear to the judge that the case was resolved, as per TMZ.
