Jeremy Renner’s split from his wife of ten months, Sonni Pacheco, is still an utter mess. When we last checked in on them, Sonni had told the court that Renner shouldn’t have any kind of custody with their daughter Ava Berlin because Renner keeps loose guns in his home. In addition to requesting sole custody of Ava, Sonni has asked for a lot of child support, plus she wants him to pay her legal fees. His response to her: get a job. Oh, and she signed a pre-nup and he wants it honored. No spousal support, although I bet he is paying some kind of child support. In any case, Team Renner has filed more paperwork with the court, claiming that Sonni threatened to release “intimate videos” of him unless he helped her get a green card.
Jeremy Renner’s estranged wife threatened to release intimate videos of him if he ever went back on his promise to help her get a green card … this according to legal docs Jeremy just filed. Renner is in the middle of a bitter child custody fight over their nearly 2-year-old daughter Ava. Sonni Pacheco’s gunning for primary custody of their child and wants more than $13K a month in child support. Jeremy has been sharing 50/50 custody since they split up in December.
In Jeremy’s new legal docs — obtained by TMZ — Jeremy says Sonni repeatedly admitted she married him to get a green card and financial stability. He claims she repeatedly told their roommate Jeremy should be nice to her and not fight her on the green card or money issues or she’d release the embarrassing videos to TMZ … By the way, TMZ never spoke with her and we wouldn’t post such videos.
Jeremy says there are multiple issues of bad parenting on Sonni’s part, the worst of which was back in September when he was on location and she left their kid alone in the house for 15 minutes. She went in an Uber to party and never checked to see if someone was at home to care for Ava. Their roommate filed a declaration saying Sonni smokes and drinks and in fact stopped breast feeding because she felt guilty she was drinking alcohol. The roommate also claims Sonni did coke during a vacation right after Ava was born. We’ve reached out to Sonni’s reps, so far no word back.
First of all, is this “roommate” the same guy that Renner has seemingly lived with for years? Isn’t that Renner’s “business partner”? And now that guy is slamming Sonni as a druggie, a party girl and an unfit mother? SHADY. I have no doubt that Sonni married Renner for some semblance of stability, and to protect herself legally if everything fell apart (which is happening). I also don’t doubt that she probably has some videos of Renner doing some sketchy stuff that he probably wouldn’t want put out there publicly. But all of this, all together… they both seem like total sketchballs.
Oh, and I love TMZ’s editorial note “TMZ never spoke with her and we wouldn’t post such videos.” Bullcrap. If Sonni showed Harvey Levin a video of Renner doing blow or something of that nature, TMZ would totally publish it.
