I guess it finally got as bad as it was ever going to get. It looks like Jeremy Renner and Sonni Pacheco have finally finalized their custody arrangement for their daughter, and are very close to wrapping up the terms of their divorce. Last week, we heard that Jeremy Renner’s “roommate” made a declaration to the court, saying that Sonni Pacheco was a terrible mother, that she drinks and does coke, and that Sonni only married Renner to get her green card. There were also claims that Sonni had comprising videos of Renner doing “something,” which Sonni was using to extort a better divorce deal for herself. All of this came after several months of rumors, court filings and public back-and-forth. It was turning out to be a significantly messy custody dispute. But now it’s over? Sort of.
Jeremy Renner and Sonny Pacheco may finally be able to enjoy their breakup in peace. The Oscar-nominated actor and his soon-to-be ex-wife have reached a custody settlement that entails Renner forking over $13,000 a month in child support for their 2-year-old daughter, Ava Berlin Renner.
According to court documents obtained Wednesday by E! News, Ava’s parents will share joint legal and physical custody.
Pacheco had been seeking a hefty hike in her monthly support payments, as well as primary physical custody of Ava; Renner had insisted on joint custody all along. His legal camp had also filed paperwork stating that by signing a prenuptial agreement before they tied the knot, Pacheco had waived her right to seek spousal support.
The settlement filing also stipulates that neither the Hurt Locker star nor Pacheco can “make derogatory or insulting remarks” about the other, a signiifcant other or either of their families in front of Ava. They’re furter restricted from “arguing, yelling or using profanity” directed at each other in front of their child. In addition to the $13,000-a-month and being asked to cover Ava’s health care costs in full, Renner has also been ordered to pay back child support, based on the new terms, of $21,035.
People Mag also says that Renner still won’t pay any spousal support, just child support. We’ve heard that before about spousal support – Renner made Pacheco sign a pre-nup in which she gave up her right to spousal support no matter what. Still, $13,000 a month is pretty generous. That’s… $156,000 a year. She’ll be able to support herself with that. That being said, I doubt this is over. I feel like Sonni still has some tricks up her sleeve.
