Sonni Pacheco asks for primary custody, says Jeremy Renner’s home is ‘unsafe’


I just realized that Jeremy Renner has been MIA this awards season. He did a back-to-back twofer in 2010 and 2011 with Oscar nominations, and if he wanted to, I would guess that he could totally end up a presenter at the Oscars. Some people do that, especially if they’re not promoting anything – they’ll avoid all of the awards season hoopla except for the Oscars and the Oscar parties. It would be good to see Renner out and about on Oscar night. Update: crap, I totally forgot that Renner presented at the Globes! My bad.

Anyway, as we know, Renner’s wife of ten months filed for divorce in December. It seemed very sudden to most of us out here in the cheap seats, and of course there were TONS of conspiracy theories, especially since Sonni Pacheco listed “fraud” as one of the reasons for the divorce. A month ago, Sonni issued her first direct statement to a media outlet, when she told The Daily Mail was she was “fine” and that she hopes everything will be resolved quickly. Renner’s camp insists that Renner was somewhat blindsided by the divorce filing, even though they were having big problems. Renner’s camp insists that he will fight Sonni on custody of their daughter Ava and his biggest worry is that Sonni will take Ava to Canada. Now TMZ has more information about what could be a major custodial/divorce fight:

Sonni is asking for primary custody of their 22-month-old daughter Ava. What’s curious … since they split in December, we’ve learned they have shared 50/50 custody. In California there’s a presumption that a divorcing couple should share joint custody, which is what they’ve had.

In addition, she’s claiming his house is unsafe for the child. Sonni says the pool needs to be properly fenced. She also claims he has a gun collection and one of the weapons [is] out in the open, behind a bar. But we’re told when she lived in that house with their child the pool was protected and the guns were all locked up.

Sonni claims Jeremy’s loaded and she’s not — so she wants lots of child support. She says he made around $3.5 million in 2014 and has $13 million in assets. In the legal docs obtained by TMZ … Sonni says when she told Jeremy he’d have to pay child support he responded, “Get a j.o.b.” But our sources say he’s been paying child support since they split. She also wants $75K in attorney’s fees and another $25K in other legal expenses.

Sources connected with Jeremy grouse he’s given Sonni everything she’s asked for and this is just a ploy to make what should be a simple divorce very expensive.

[From TMZ]

I think having loaded weapons out in the open is a really big deal. I’m actually pro-gun and pro-gun control – I believe sane people should have access to most guns, but I think reasonable limits should be imposed, like no guns in school zones and if you have children in your home, your guns should be under lock and key. The pool thing seems like a pretty simple fix – Renner could just hire someone to childproof his property and get the whole thing knocked out in a day. As for the money and custody fight… eh. I’m surprised Renner is worth so little (in Hollywood terms). And yes, I kind of think he should just pay her to go away. That’s what she wants.

    I don’t know who he is but face-wise he really shouldn’t be a Hollywood star!

    I could never live in a country where people have guns in their homes..

    • apointlessexercise says:

      ia but i also think that about mickey rourke.

      renner was good in hurt locker, though.

    • Liv says:

      Yep, I can’t imagine having guns at home either.

      Oh and I’m so convinced now that Renner is gay and the relationship was meant to be a distraction….the whole thing seems orchestrated.

    • Jaded says:

      Not every actor needs to be flawless….in fact that’s one of my biggest complaints about Hollywood movie-making vs. British – all the actors look like cookie cutter Ken and Barbie dolls for the most part whereas the movies made in the UK use actors that generally look like real people.

      • snowflake says:

        you are so right. I had an ex who was from England and we watched some UK shows. I was shocked by how normal and average the stars were.

      • daughterofjean says:

        I agree. Everyone in HW appears plastic.

      • Bread and Circuses says:

        This! Even watching British television is astonishing. Everyone looks good, but they don’t look impossibly beautiful.

    • Sos101 says:

      Renner is one of those guys I have a crush on and I can’t explain why. I typically enjoy the movies he’s in too.

      I will slink away now.

      • Itsa Reallyme says:

        I agree. He’s not your traditionally handsome guy but there’s something very manly and sexy about him.

    • Esthetix says:

      Hahaha…so mean!
      Personally, I can do with more “ordinary” looking people in Hollywood. Renner is average in the acting department but apparently he’s got good hustle and business sense.

    • Isadora says:

      “I could never live in a country where people have guns in their homes.. ”

      I’m not sure there is a country in this world where you can’t have a gun in your home? Gun reglementations are different, sure, but in practically every country you can have at least a hunting weapon or something like that. A lot of countries don’t allow carrying a weapon, but having at home (if you are of age, have no criminal record and a licence).

      • JaneFr says:

        It not being impossible and it being usual are 2 very different things.
        Here (France), you can have a weapon at home, as long as it is registered and as you are a current member of a registered shooting range or have a current hunting license. You can’t carry, open or concealed.
        The law is not that restrictive and still, very few people have one at home. It’s just not done (Are you a hunter ? If yes, God Why ? If not, so you are a crazy psychopath).
        I read once that there’s, at least, 89 fire weapon per 100 civilians in the states. It blew my mind. For me, that’s just crazy, and like Sarah I can’t imagine living in a country where having guns at home is the norm.

      • Isadora says:

        I never said that there are no gun regulation laws? I just stated that it’s unlikely that someone lives in a country where nobody (outside of police and military) has a gun at home – Sarah spoke in general and not about “the norm”. Of course in most countries there are more or less strict regulations. But of course also quite a few people do have a (registered, licenced) weapon at home.

        Personally I’m neither a hunter (*lol* I’m about 90% vegan) nor am I a psychopath (???), I also don’t have a gun at home. But I understand why some people have one at home for personal protection. There are also sports marksmen who have a (registered) weapon at home like other people have a crossbow or darts game. Or sharp knives because they like to cook.

        I don’t understand why owners of legal weapons should necessarily be grouped with psychopaths. A lot of the time psychopaths and killers get their weapons illegally at the blackmarket and do not have registered weapons at home. We have all seen the tragedy that happened this year in France and the Kouachi brothers got AK-47s and a bazooka from the blackmarket and no gun regulation law prevented that.

      • JaneFr says:

        I was not trying t say that gun owners are all psychopath, but that here, if you have one and are not a hunter, you are looked down and considered borderline psychopath.
        The Kouachi brothers is a very bad exemple. Nothing will prevent a terrorist group from getting guns on the black market (most likely from a country without serious regulation). But regulation will prevent unhappy teenagers from gunning down their classmate, kids from accidentally themselves or their baby sister, frightened owner from killing some maybe-maybe not wannabe car radio thief.

    • Dawn says:

      Really you think he has a bad face? Sorry but I can’t agree. He looks rugged and like he has had a real life and hasn’t been pampered. I personally don’t own a gun and don’t have one in my home but I grew up around guns and let me tell you my father taught us all from a very young age that you never touch his guns, ever. And we listened. Of course they were locked away too. I think she is simply a gold digger using her child to get what she wants for herself and that is money handed to her. My Ex paid child support and I got a job. That is how it should be.

      • Ally8 says:

        I’m sorry, he looks like a troll doll. Also, charisma-free. His Bourne movie… so poor. He was also forgettable in Mission Impossible.

        I did like him in American Hustle. Maybe he’s more cut out for character acting than leading man stuff. Still didn’t deserve to be paid more than the female leads for it, though.

  2. Maria says:

    If she didn’t have a problem with his pool and guns then, why now?

    As stated in your post, all those things can be easily fixed, child support should be a given-attorney fees and all that seems over the top, especially if he’s already accommodating her.

    • snowflake says:

      because she wants primary custody so she can get more money, hire a nanny, and find another rich man.

      • Veruca Salt says:

        This truth, though. She already agreed to a figure when she agreed to beard for him and carry his child. She became greedy, wanted more so is now trying to do whatever it takes to get more money and if that includes attempts at tarnishing his reputation, then so be it.

      • Ally8 says:

        “She got one of your kids, got you for 18 years”

    • Sarah says:

      Because she wants money! Also – the article says there is a gun at the bar. Not that it is a loaded gun. Big difference.

      • Venus says:

        That’s what I was thinking — it could be an unloaded antique rifle hung on the wall, for all we know.

    • FLORC says:

      They weren’t together very long and weren’t really living in the same house. I’m wondering if she knew about much of this. It’s worth noting after a child you start to view the world differently. Dangers you’ve never noticed become all you can see.

      I’m giving her the benefit of doubt here.

    • Sticks says:

      She might not have had a problem before because she could be around to supervise. She may be concerned about these things more when her daughter is there without her. Legitimate concerns, I feel.

    • Pixi says:

      Exactly – like the day she walked out he went “whoo hoo” and took his gun out of the closet to celebrate? WTH? I’m not buying it. I think she’s miffed that he isn’t as loaded as she thought and now she wants whatever she can get… She should have waited for the Age of Ultron money to clear though…

  3. Kiddo says:

    Aren’t there codes about fencing around pools? I always thought you had liability even if some neighbor’s kid came over and drowned in your pool? Attractive nuisance and whatnot? Disclaimer: Pool-less Person.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      Depends on the state. Renner has a home renovation business. I suspect he knows how to fence in a pool.

      • Kiddo says:

        He has a home renovation business? This cracked me up for some strange reason. It seems like the oddest back-up plan.

      • jmho says:

        Worked for Vanilla Ice. 🙂

      • mimif says:

        Renner and his friend flip houses, and at a nice profit. Coincidentally, there are lots of rumors surrounding Renner’s relationship with his friend. Also, he looks like Grumpy Cat. The End.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        I thought Renner’s long-time, live-in ‘Best Friend and Business Partner’ owned the Renovation company.

      • Kiddo says:

        mimif, 😾 😠 U

      • Lilacflowers says:

        They’re partners on the ownership of the renovation business and Renner actually does some of the construction work, says he enjoys it. He also was a make-up artist in a department store.

      • Ginger says:

        LOL! Mimif. I can now only see Grumpy Cat!

      • mimif says:

        I just don’t think I could sit there and let Grumpy Cat do my makeup. Talk about awkward.

      • Kiddo says:

        HE KNOWS how to do guyliner.

      • Erin says:

        He actually flips homes… And he sold his last one for like some crazy money … 20 million.

        I don’t think she has any idea of what he earns , how could he have made just 3.5 million last year , American Hustle grossed over 150 million in domestic and another 100 million world wide on a 40 million budget and he he back end deal and that’s just one flim there the Avenger’s that he filmed last year plus side business.

        He should file in Atlanta , Usher got full custody and still has it even though one of his kids almost drowned in his custody and the person he had watching his children didn’t even know how to swim , lucky there were workers on the property who jumped in saved the boy

        Then last week Luderious got full cusody of a 3 month baby girl, from a women he had affair with while still in relationship with his long time girl friend .

        Crazy judges who can be bought off .

    • Scarlet Vixen says:

      It depends on where you live. I’m not sure if it is by state, county, or city tho. Where I live, most pools are required to be fenced in. But, I believe some pools could be ‘grandfathered’ in, so the homeowners are not required to build a fence if the pool was already on the property for a certain length of time.

    • Sarah says:

      The fences keep other people out of your property. They typically aren’t erected to keep the homeowner out.

      • Kiddo says:

        They are supposed to guard against accidental drowning which would include a small child of the homeowner.

  4. paola says:

    I am against guns and firearms. No one is ever truly sane to keep a loaded gun their home.
    You’ll never know what can happen in the heat of the moment.

    • Catk says:

      We don’t have a gun, but I’m all for safe, sane, responsible gun control. I think your sweeping generalization is crazy harsh.

    • megs283 says:

      Please. There are hundreds of thousands of responsible gun owners in the US, and my father and older brother are two of them. To get a carry permit in my town, my brother had to get letters from his boss, a rep on the police force, and two or three non-related character witnesses. Granted, in some states you can just go and buy one at a Wal-Mart or flea market…in other states (like mine) you need to take gun-safety courses.

      I believe that responsible gun owners keep this country and our government safe. Our forefathers obviously felt the same way!

      ETA: You obviously have a right to be against guns and firearms – but it’s ridiculous to make such sweeping generalizations about gun owners and their sanity.

      • JaneFr says:

        Do you consider the current gun control responsible ? If so, I’d have to say that statistics then prove you wrong. Guns do not make people safer, not even safe.

        I can understand the tradition/historical argument, the constitutional/lawful argument but the “safety” claim is just untrue.

    • J-G says:

      My dad hunted so there was an assortment of firearms in my house growing up. Always kept locked up. Taught us about safety. He had three daughters and there was never an issue.

      That’s very antedotal but a home can be safe even with firearms in them.

      It doesn’t say the guns are loaded. Just one is out in the open — which I don’t think is safe either.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        I would never have guns in my house, but I agree with you. My father hunted and had several guns. He kept them in a locked cabinet and the bullets in a different locked cabinet, and we were not allowed to even think about thinking about touching them. If someone is willing to do that, I have no objection.

    • Artemis says:


      Me too. If the gun is safely locked away, how in the world can you access it when you’re being attacked? You don’t know how you’re going to react and when you panic, you don’t have enough time to get the gun, not to mention you have to control your nerves.

      And as for ‘responsible gun control’, there are plenty of crazy/paranoid people out there that are licensed to carry guns and do nothing but harm with it.

      Also, a lot of people get shot with their own gun, you have to be confident that you can shoot a person (and you can never known for sure you would be able to do that) because you’re gonna get overpowered otherwise. If the gun is easily accessible, you put other people’s lives in danger (e.g. children). I don’t see the huge advantage of having a gun. I would prefer to have a good security system.

      I don’t think the advantages override the disadvantages so I’m not pro-gun either. Maybe it’s because I come from a country where people just don’t have that mentality (that guns are an effective way to protect yourself) and where they rather invest in good security.

      • snowflake says:

        if you don’t have kids, you don’t have to worry about locking it away. if you do have it locked away, you can lock yourself in the room to give yourself enough time to get it out of the safe. yes, there are crazy people out there with guns, what if they come after you? I would rather have a gun and a chance at defending myself. most people are going to go away if they simply see a gun. I carry mine in the glove box of my car. I live in a quiet neighborhood in a big city, I feel I need it more when I’m out and about. but to each their own, ya know. Plus, I live in America where guns are common. Someone I work with told me at a car dealership she worked at, the owners carried their piece (Florida has a concealed weapons permit, which allows you to carry it on you).. Now that would freak me out. I see that as unnecessary. I can understand your reasoning. What country are you from?

      • MarcelMarcel says:

        @paola @Artemis I agree. I live in Australia where gun ownership laws were tightened in the nineties. I’ve been on a hunting range and shot targets with a rifle (the gun was owned by a licensed owner, the range was owned by a gun club and we had to sign in for me able to shoot.). It was a lot of fun however I’m glad there are tight regulations about gun use. Mostly because it highly diminishes the chances of violent massacres.

        I’ve found keeping a level head, running fast and/or having a mobile to call for help has been more helpful in defusing threatening situations than using aggression. I will talk on the phone when I’m in shady parts of town or text someone that my location and then text them when I’m safe. (I live alone) When my friend & her boyfriend experienced a home invasion, he chased the thief down and retrieved their possessions all without a gun. Using a gun in combat is different to using it for sport or hunting which is why police, military etc… receive training. I’m doubt that most people could effectively use a gun in a conflict/combat situation without specialised training.

      • Artemis says:


        Disagree, children are an obvious example but I have a personal experience of somebody dying thanks to an easily accessible gun. The niece of my foster parents committed suicide with the gun of her boyfriend because she had mental problems (which nobody was aware of). You can argue she would have found other methods but at the end of the day, the gun was there, she was desperate and it was done. You never truly know people. I wouldn’t want to take that risk. Another aspect of having a gun and using it, are the mental consequences of killing another human being or dealing with the accidental (or suicide) death of a loved one. Too many risks for preconceived notions and expectations of danger.

        Again, when you’re in a dangerous situation, a person that isn’t trained to deal with such circumstances will be less rational. From personal experiences with dangerous situations (assault, fire in a building), I can say for myself that my body did not react the way my brain wanted to. Very unpredictable. And those were mild cases, I can’t imagine what it feels like to know you have the power to kill somebody not knowing if you could’ve avoided the situation.

        If it was that easy to calm down and make rational decision then nobody would die at the hand of their own gun when the attacker overpowers you. Also, not all robbers are killers so pointing a gun (and not being prepared to shoot and kill with it) can aggravate a situation into a murder that will most likely be in your disadvantage.

        I’m from Belgium 🙂


        I agree, definitely with your second paragraph. There are other options and I doubt that most people actually know how to use a gun. The depressing statistics surrounding gun deaths in children/young people and accidental gun deaths in general are enough to convince me it ain’t worth taking matters into my own hands tbh. It anything, it makes you less safe.

    • Ginger says:

      Pro gun here. My husband is a former police officer. But we are responsible and keep our weapons locked up. And you can have instant access to a locked up weapon. There are ways that still keep them safe from young children. My son is now hunting with his grandfather and father and has taken gun safety and hunter safety classes. He was taught from the get go about gun safety. Gun control and ownership is an argument that will go on and on ad nauseum in America. But the bottom line is that no matter your opinion, it’s LEGAL. And in most states you can carry concealed if you pass the right courses and adhere to the law. If Jeremy is indeed keeping a loaded weapon out in the open with a young child in the home then he is irresponsible and disobeying the law especially if this is taking place in California where gun control is much more strict. I just wonder how they would prove that or is the court going to take her word for it? I would imagine he would be the one to have to prove otherwise.

      • Isa says:

        There are fingerprint safes or combination safes. We plan on getting them. Right now our guns are stored in a safe that requires a key.

    • daughterofjean says:

      I’ll never understand having a gun either. Those are for the police and soldiers.

      • Erin says:

        And criminals… I guess you believe only the state or criminals should have access to guns …. And the rich who have armed body guards .

        Hundreds of kids does a year in pool accidents , even with all the by laws governing pool safety , don’t see people trying to outlaw the ability for people to have pools .

      • Sofia says:

        Ha! @daughterofjean, I read your comment as ‘Guns are for police and toddlers.’
        NO, THEY’RE NOT FOR TODDLERS! Oh, SOLDIERS. I’ll get my coat.

        On gun control though, I just don’t understand when people try to justify gun ownership with the personal safety argument. Research and statistics show guns do not keep you safe, they put you and your loved ones in more danger. Like someone said earlier up the thread, in the US it’s legal. If you like guns, go for it. Just don’t kid yourself or others it’s for your personal safety, that’s bollocks.

    He was an old man who acted a fool, hooking up with such a young person getting her pregnant, marrying her and not having the wisdom to keep her content. So whatever. Sonni, take enough so you never ever have to work another cocktail lounge again. Team Baby but also Team Take-A-Fools Money.

    • Bella bella says:

      Um, I believe it’s common knowledge that Renner is gay. I’m not sure what kind of agreement he had with Sonni but all of this might be a giant publicity stunt that was planned in advance.

    • Mark says:

      She deserves the bare minimum, how can you support this behavior, rinsing his bank account and slandering him? I doubt if he was doing this to her you’d be team jeremy.

      • snowflake says:

        +1 on all your comments. I guess if you leave your purse open and sonny or leona gets into it and takes your money, that’s your fault for being a fool. lol

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Mark, who wrote: “@bellabella Did you know this for fact or are you just reading blogs?”

        Mark, Google is our friend. Try typing in ‘news reports about–and what prompted–Jeremy Renner’s bar fight in Thailand.’ There is also the fact that Ted Casablanca got fired at ‘E!Online’ because he accidentally used Renner’s real name instead of a pseudonym in a Blind Vice revealing that the actor is gay. Personally? He has always ‘pinged’ big time.

      • The Original Mia says:

        @Emma, maybe you should Google and find out the real story behind bar fight story. He was with his local guide and the guide got into a fight with some locals. They weren’t at a gay bar, but the story wouldn’t have been as salacious without that tidbit. And Ted got fired not because he outed Renner, but because they didn’t want to be sued. Ted didn’t know squat. He was upset with Renner about some snub and decided to throw his name out there and it backfired.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @The Original Mia …

        When the story first broke it was reported through Main Stream media, which is how I first heard it. It was reported that Renner and a group of his friends were in a bar when a Pimp approached the group and demanded payment for one of his boys. I don’t recall it being said that he was in a ‘gay’ bar, just a bar. What made the story titillating was mention of the Pimp whose stable consisted of young men.

    • Jaded says:

      Old man?!? He’s only in his early forties….jeezuz that must make me old as dirt at 62…

      • Leona says:

        Sorry Jaded. Its all relative I guess. I’m around Sonnis age and this man just seems ridiculously old and pathetic to me. Its that ridiculous clinging to youth through dating much younger women that ages him inside and out. You, I’m sure are a far better human being and are gracefully allowing the years to come and go without this strange desperation we see in these stupid Hollywood men.

      • Isadora says:

        I’m also about Sonni’s age and I don’t think he’s an “old man” and pathetically clinging to youth. They have an age gap, yes, I think about 16 years? Not sure. However Brangelina also have an age gap of 12 years which is comparable, I guess, but I’ve never heard someone calling him an “old man” for that.

      • Leona says:

        You would date men that age, Isadora? Coz it creeps me out when they hit on me. Just no. It makes me feel even more objectified than when a “dude-bro” tries it. Arrgh. I need a shower.

      • Isadora says:

        It definitely depends on the man. But for example I’d be all over Michael Fassbender in a heartbeat and while he’s technically younger than Jeremy Renner, he looks about the same age. It’s not like either of them is old enough to be my dad or something.

        Guys in their 40s hitting on me used to creep me out when I was 17. 😉 Nowadays I think we’re all adults, I will be 30 in no time, I might have kids of my own, I’ve had my share of life experience, so age gaps aren’t such a thing anymore. And it’s also not like I look way younger than my age and therefore am some kind of legal Lolita fetish dream or something.

        But I guess tastes and experiences are different. I generally don’t feel objectified if someone hits on me that I don’t fancy. I’m just like “No, sorry, won’t happen” and go my merry way.

        I agree, snowflake. Leona, take it easy, you don’t know him but he’s a really nice guy. So nice I suppose that people take advantage of him but let’s not forget who is really at fault here and taking advantage of another person. They already both agreed to a figure so it’s not like he was leaving her out to dry AT ALL. geez.

        I hate it when people are like, “It’s their fault for getting taken advantage of, they were stupid they have the iq of a pug they deserve it then lololol” I mean, that kind of “logic” is basically like you’re saying it’s okay to take advantage of someone handicapped (whether physical or mental) because they “were too stupid to do anything about it”. People should just not be assholes and take advantage of other people, period. If they do, they are assholes. Plain and simple.

        Veruca Salt must be Renners PR agent. What makes you think this idiot is a good person? Do you know him, do you live with him or is it just one of this internet crushes that have you convinced that he is the love of your life and therefore a god among men?

        As the expression goes “a fool and his money are soon parted”. Jeremy and his money are about to separate and his shady bride is just the woman to do it. He’ll be smarter for it too.

      • Veruca Salt says:

        Or you could very we’ll be Sonni herself. I’m not Jeremy Renner’s PR. I have mentioned in my previous comment that he is a very nice man, so yes, I do know him. And I’m not talking about some celeb encounter once, I actually do know him. I don’t work for him. He’s a very gracious and generous man, a little awkward at first, but when he gets comfortable, he is someone who will make you feel like you’ve know him forever. Your personal shot at me being a stan with “an Internet crush” that doesn’t even know him was cheap and low, I did not respond to you in a rude manner so I don’t see why you need to be rude and get super defensive and negative.

        Also, since you keep saying he deserves to get cleaned out since he’s an “idiot”, like I said in my comment:

        I hate it when people are like, “It’s their fault for getting taken advantage of, they were stupid they have the iq of a pug they deserve it then lololol” I mean, that kind of “logic” is basically like you’re saying it’s okay to take advantage of someone handicapped (whether physical or mental) because they “were too stupid to do anything about it”.

        People should just not be a-holes and take advantage of other people, period. If they do, they are a-holes. Plain and simple.

    Yeah, with kids around the gun should be locked up. Or at least while Ava is young, it should be out of reach. My dad has a vintage shotgun (unloaded) displayed on deer hoof hooks just an inch or two from our ceiling.

    I have to say I like that California assumes joint custody as a default. I think that’s a fair, and ultimately feminist policy because it treats parents equally. I lived with my mom who was unstable until I was 16 (always with Wednesdays and every other weekend with my dad, he never missed one) and then fought it out in court to live with my dad and stepmom. I was way happier there. I just like the default being joint custody because I think it’s a good starting point for the kid, and fair to the parents.

    • Sarah says:

      Joint custody is usually the best option (except when a parent is unstable or negligent obviously!). The common train of thought these days is that all courts favour women and it’s so unfair and feminism ruined everything. So quickly people forget the way it used to be in the old days – women kicked out on the streets never allowed to see their kids again. Joint custody should be the goal in all situations where it is feasible but feminism shouldn’t be blamed when it doesn’t work out. Really the patriarchy should be to blame – expecting women to be caregivers and men to be breadwinners means many men miss out on access to their kids.

      I know this isn’t totally relevant but I just wanted to express!

    Not quite MIA — He presented at the Globes this year. Made that obnoxious (though on point) comment about co-presenter Jennifer Lopez’s “globes.”

  8. Goats on the Roof says:

    I just can’t understand why anybody gets married these days without a prenup.

    • Tig says:

      Just an aside- typically a pre-nuptial agreement doesn’t deal with child support. Yeah, I’m always pretty skeptical of the “dangers” in the former marital home where you were OK with living in up until you move out.

      • Goats on the Roof says:

        Oh, I know. I just didn’t see in the article a mention of a prenup, so I was making a general statement. Also with you on the housing situation. She was fine with the baby living there before, so what gives now?

    • Rachel says:

      It says they did have one but she cited fraud.

  9. scout says:

    I just feel sorry for this woman, don’t know why. He looks aggressive and controlling to me but who knows what happens inside the four walls of their home, tough situation. Hope they think what’s best for the child.

    • Delta Juliet says:

      Funny, I feel the opposite. I think she manipulated him BIG time and now she’s done with him. “Just give me the kid and money and go away”.

    • Kristin says:

      Scout, I’ve got to completely disagree with you here. I don’t know her, but I actually do know Jeremy Renner a bit. He’s the only famous person I’ve ever known, but he’s seriously a very nice guy. I don’t feel any sympathy for her at all. From everything I’ve heard, he’s bent over backward to accomodate her and in response, she’s tried to squeeze more money from him by slandering his name and reneging on their original agreement, which by all accounts, was a totally fair settlement.

      • Kerry says:

        It is nice to read that. I remember listening to a commentary on a film called Take. The director and producer said they were worried about casting Renner because all they had seen him in was Dahmer, in which he was really creepy, and their character needed to be likable. They said they were relieved when they finally met him because he was extremely likable. Charlize Theron said almost exactly the same thing about him, she said she was even a little scared at the thought of working with him (even though he was a nobody in a film packed with stars), but one night on the town and she knew he would be a friend for life. The guy seems to have a real talent for making and keeping friends, but perhaps he isn’t very good at being a boyfriend or husband. I do feel bad for him though, because I doubt he would have married this woman if he felt he had any other choice, whatever he might have said to the contrary.

  10. lem says:

    So the guns were locked up while she was living there but since she moved out he’s now keeping them out in the open, unlocked and loaded? That makes absolutely no sense.

    • PrincessMe says:

      Exactly, and everyone’s just taking her word for it. Of course she’s not just saying all this to put herself in a better position to get sole custody/more money. Oh no, that never happens.

    • stellalovejoydiver says:

      TMZ was told = his publicist spoke to them, it’s her word against his.

  11. Ally.J says:

    There’s nothing good about guns, nothing.

    • Kip says:

      I don’t understand the attraction of having guns at all. A minority view in the US where I grew up and now that I live elsewhere, I find it is the default view, which is turn just makes it harder and harder for me to understand why people would ever want to own a gun. Pro-gun people always appeal to “responsible gun owners” and “freedom” – but how is owning a gun ever completely responsible or free? Isn’t it all the things you can’ t prepare for or think of or control that end up determining whether a tragedy occurs, so how such a dangerous thing ever be owned responsibly? How is anyone ever feel free with the threat of gun violence around? Also, are there any advantages of owning a gun? Srsly, I did grow up in America but I am really missing something now…

    • Msmlnp says:

      I agree with you. I moved to Texas from Massachusetts and the gun culture here is really something. I am scared to let my kids go over other kids houses due to a very relaxed attitude about guns that I don’t share.

      • MrsBPitt says:

        @Msmlnp…I, too, moved from Massachusetts to Texas, and you are right! Such a different gun culture! Back home, I didn’t know one person that owned a gun, and here I don’t any that don’t! I find it very scary…

  12. Scarlet Vixen says:

    If he’s displaying a gun behind a bar, chances are it’s unloaded. And if the rest of his guns are properly stored I don’t see what the problem is. But then again, I live in Michigan, where more than half the boys in my high school would take the first day of hunting season off of school. If that and a pool fence are all she can come up with then it sounds like she’s desperately reaching.

  13. InvaderTak says:

    Seems like she’s throwing anything out there that might help her get what she wants.

  14. serena says:

    I hope Jeremy will get primary custody instead, she just seems like a moneygrabber.

  15. The Original Mia says:

    She’s throwing everything at the ceiling and hoping something will stick. She has no leg to stand on to deny him custody, but threatening to take his kid away from him will surely increase her payout.

  16. anon says:

    Okay I’m gonna be honest. When I first saw pics of her on this site I thought she looks very pretty….now seeing a closer pic of her face and I’m like meh. She ain’t pretty at all! Boy pics sure lie.

  17. Micki says:

    ….”And yes, I kind of think he should just pay her to go away. That’s what she wants. “…
    It’s sad that there’s a child involved.

  18. Amanda says:

    I wouldn’t feel comfortable with a loaded gun in my home, but as long as the gun(s) are locked up and there’s a gate around the pool, the toddler should be safe.

  19. ToodySezHey says:

    How in the world was this chick a model, she has such an odd looking face. She looks like an extra from The Dark Crystal, I halfway expect her to sprout wings from her back

  20. Algernon says:

    Do we know the gun is loaded? My company has done real estate ads for properties his renovation company has done, and in one of the houses, he had an antique gun display in the library. He’d staged the house himself and the contact from his company said a lot of the art/artifacts were from his personal collection, including the guns. Apparently, he has quite a collection of old guns. When I hear “gun behind the bar”, I picture something like an old Winchester mounted for decoration. Also worth noting that the house Renner was living in just hit the market, so he’s moved already and none of this stuff is probably an issue any longer.

    “I’m surprised Renner is worth so little (in Hollywood terms).”

    Rumor has it he’s capital-L loaded, but most of it is in his business. That’s probably why she cited “fraud” in her initial filing. It’s not that he lied about his sexuality, it’s that she thinks he hid assets and she’s going to try to prove that so he’ll have to pay her more.

  21. Crumpet says:

    Poor kid. That’s all I got.

  22. snowflake says:

    yeah, I don’t get how she’s a model. to me, her face isn’t all that. nice bone structure, but her eyes are deepset and she’s plain. wasn’t she a lingerie model or something? i guess with a skinny figure and bought tits, you can be a lingerie model. I don’t buy that renner’s gay just b/c he has a best friend who he lives and works with and he was a makeup artist in the past. when you’re rich and famous, any random person is going to try to take advantage of you. so I can understand keeping longterm friends close. anyway, even if he is, he doesn’t deserve a screwing by this golddigger. I doubt she displayed her appetite for money, that normally doesn’t get you very far. smart golddiggers keep their plans under wraps, until the time is right, like this slore. so i don’t get why some people are basically saying he deserves it. if he is gay, and married and had a baby with her b/c he wants to seem straight, I still don’t see how he deserves a scr^wing. I guess I need to start spreading my legs like a hooker for money, seems to be working good for a lot of women (hilaria, etc). hmmmm……

  23. anotherrandom says:

    Ok, I don’t know if this was said in previous posts, but I finally figured out who she reminds me of! The girl character from Dark Crystal!! I’m sorry, I just had to share. It’s been bothering me.–vUm19Dgf–/18dxiijunfm1vjpg.jpg

  24. INeedANap says:

    She looks like the poor man’s Rhona Mitra.

  26. roxy750 says:

    It;s not about guns or pool safety, it’s about the fact she duped him. She knew what she was doing prior to getting into this with him. $$$ I feel bad for famous people sometimes.

  27. Josefa says:

    Why is everyone so sure Renner’s gay? Is there any evidence or is it just more of that gaydar bullshit?

  28. Misprounced Name Dropper says:

    Guns, guns, guns. I’m glad I live in a country that doesn’t allow easy access to guns. A few years ago I was woken in the middle of the night by a guy trying to steal my car. I walked outside and he ran away. If I’d had a gun I probably would’ve walked outside and shot him. So glad I don’t have to live with that.

  29. Tania says:

    Does anyone know if she is required to return to Canada now that they are divorcing? She is a Canadian citizen. The baby could be a dual citizen if she fills out the paperwork for it.
