Jeremy Renner finalized his divorce, Sonni Pacheco gets $13,000 a month


Jeremy Renner has finally settled his divorce. You know his divorce took longer to deal with than the marriage, right? The marriage was 10 months long and Sonni Pacheco filed for divorce exactly one year ago. To be fair, we only found out about the divorce filing one year ago, she actually filed for divorce a few weeks earlier. So 2015 was spent with both Renner and Pacheco lobbing accusations back and forth, often to the detriment of both of their images. Pacheco was trying to break the prenup and possibly get full custody of their daughter, Ava Berlin. Renner was trying to enforce the prenup and he seemed okay with joint custody, which is what ended up happening when the custodial arrangement seemed to be solidified back in April. Still, it took them eight more months to finalize the divorce, so you know there was a lot of bickering back and forth.

Jeremy Renner is officially divorced. The actor’s heated divorce battle with ex-wife Sonni Pacheco was put to an end on Monday, according to official court documents obtained by PEOPLE. Renner, 44, and Pacheco had previously agreed to sharing custody of their 2-year-old daughter Ava.

The Avengers star will also pay $13,000 a month in child support, according to court documents. And in the case Renner makes more than $2.3 million a year, he is subject to pay 5 percent of the excess as additional child support.

The former couple were married for 10 months before Pacheco cited irreconcilable differences when filing for divorce in Dec. 2014. The mother of one will not receive spousal support as she signed a prenuptial agreement in Dec. 2013.

[From People]

$13,000 a month is not bad. I could live quite comfortably on $13,000 a month and never need to get a real job. That’s $156,000 a year, just to jointly raise their child. Granted, Renner makes a lot more than that per year, especially if you take into account his side business of flipping houses (a business which has kept him afloat financially through his lean years as an actor). But… Sonni will be living in LA, I’m assuming, and $156,000 in LA is probably seen as not all that much. Will Sonni have to find a job? Will she fight for more money in the coming years? We’ll see. For now though, it does seem settled. And I can’t believe Renner was able to enforce the prenup.



Is it possible to fall in love EVERY SINGLE DAY? Simply… YES #angel #daddylove #fortunate #girlpower

    get money b*tch! *khia voice*

  2. Jenna's Snark says:

    Is it bothering anyone else that she has the Cheez It and Triscuit boxes thrown in with the rest of the garbage? Wtf? I will never understand what is so hard about recycling.

    • lisa2 says:

      It doesn’t look like trash. There is nothing messy in the bag. Most of the things from what I see look recyclable in fact; lots of boxes and stuff. And if you look in her hands she is carrying boxes that look broken down.

      • Sochan says:

        She carrying the recycling trash, as evidenced also by the box and paper in her hand. Her garbage bag looks exactly like my recycled garbage – all paper products and bottles.

    • antipodean says:

      I noticed the Cheezit box in the trash too, and had a chuckle, who knew Jeremy likes his snacks, just like us! That little girl is just gorgeous, hope she is not scarred too much by her parents’ back and forth. The whole “marriage” scenario was sketchy from the beginning.
      I also agree about the recycling, when I am walking in my neighbourhood on garbage day, it gobsmacks me the awful stuff people put in what should be the recycling bins. I have seen rusty old bikes, tree trimmings, and all sorts, it really annoys me. It’s not rocket science, chaps.

    • Lama Bean says:

      Hahahahahahaha I came to write the same comment!! It’s the only thing I can see in these pics.

      Update: I stand corrected. I guess this is the recycling. Thanks for clearing that up, y’all.

    • iseepinkelefants says:

      It’s la so everyone probably has recycling but maybe not? Paris has recycling but not every building has bins. I hate throwing my recycling and trash into just one bin but c’est la vie, I can’t recycle if I don’t have a bin.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Some areas of LA are their own city (like West Hollywood, Santa Monica, etc.), so they have their own procedures. I believe the city of LA has recycling, but only for homes and not apartments or multi-unit dwellings. However, at my apartment building our trash dumpster has a sign on it that says our trash company sorts and filters recycling items from the trash bin.

        I would think all trash companies could make money this way, reselling the captured recyclables back to manufacturers or to processing facilities.

    • kayne says:

      wow…that bothers you that much? yuppy.

  3. Jellybean says:

    Good for him. Whatever the circumstances of their relationship they had a Pre-Nup and the ink was barely dry before she started trying to break it. She seems to have got exactly what she agreed to before they married and exactly what was on the table before she started the muck throwing.

  4. CornyBlue says:

    Renner’s face looks like it is melting from all the evil in his heart

    He should marry the roommate now. No one will care bout him being gay.

    • ldub says:

      i mean……. she is a very handsome woman……

    • easi says:

      He’s such a douche that I kinda want him to stay miserable and closeted.

    • heylee says:

      Why is everyone sure he is gay? Is there evidence I don’t know about? Who is this roommate?

      • H says:

        He and the “roommate” have been living together for what like a decade? They flip houses together and he spoke badly about Jeremy’s ex in court proceedings. Just Google Renner Gay Datalounge and the posts come up about him being gay.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        H, since that seems to be the only reason for the rumors, I tend to doubt them. Sooooo many non-married celebs have roommates. It makes life so much easier for them. Keeps them company, someone to watch the house when they are away shooting or touring, someone to supervise housekeepers and grounds staff, etc. They act as an estate manager most of the time.

        One of my older friends was a platonic roommate of a celeb for nearly 20 years before she got married. She was able to take a lower paying job and also put her energy towards her passions in life. It really worked for her and the home owner.

      • JaneS says:

        The boys at Datalounge have zero reason to lie. Zero. So many closeted gays in Hollywood, of which Renner is one.

      • CK says:

        The boys at Datalounge lie about things all the time.

  5. suze says:

    I guess this is where we say, “babies are always great, and at least the adults got what they wanted out of the situation.”

    At least it’s resolved. Now she can sink back into relatively well paid obscurity and Renner can continue doing whatever it is he wants to do.

  6. Karen says:

    Well it’s 150k/year for the child. Plus 5% of anything he makes over 2 mil a year (any avenger movie I assume) for the child.

    They weren’t even married a year: No alimony. Joint child care. Seems fair. It’s not like she’s the long suffering wife who gave up her career. If i recall they got married because they had a child, and it didn’t work.

  7. lilacflowers says:

    But who got custody of the Cheeze-its and the Triscuits?

  8. Katylolo says:

    As for the recycling thing…there’s actually a huge misconception about the benefits of recycling. Most of the materials get downgraded and even if they don’t the carbon footprint created recovering the material outweighs its reuse. Cradle to Cradle is a great book to learn about it.

    • suze says:

      I know – the Reduce, Reuse part of the equation is way underutilized.

    • Judy_S says:

      I haven’t read that book, but living where we do we’re pretty educated on the composting/recycling process. I learned that recycling is not as good as composting. Sometimes carton boxes and paper products are shipped all the way to China for recycling. WTF! Here the turnaround time for composting is 90 days and it’s done locally. Then it’s available for free to put back into our gardens. In addition to food scraps and yard debris we compost all paper products: paper towels, pizza boxes, and yes triscuit and cheez it boxes too. Ideally you put all paper and kitchen scraps in a paper bag and then take it out to the bin. Composting is far superior to recycling. Rant over!

      • Nouveau says:

        Yes, or not buying things with packaging in the first place if you can help it.

      • Lady D says:

        I bought a pineapple at my local grocery store, and the receipt was literally a foot long. I cannot for the life of me fathom why I need a foot of paper to prove I bought one item. The waste makes me angry and sad.

  9. Tiffany says:

    OT. Her body be banging before marriage/pregnancy. Now she looks stressed. It is like the life got taken out of her. With Renner involved, I can believe it.

  10. tracking says:

    It would have been far less money for him to hire a surrogate. She certainly is well compensated for having his child. Of course she has to deal with him forever, so that part is harder earned.

  11. als says:

    Somebody please give him the title Father of the century and be done with him, his Instagram is full of pics with his daughter and how much he adores her.

    I don’t know how this new generation of kids is, but back when I was a child I was very hurt when mum and dad treated each other like crap, directly or indirectly.

    Therefore, to wage wars and negotiate THIS HARD the welfare of your child’s mother, looks like shit. If he was such a tough guy he should have picked the mother of his children with much more care, instead he chose a womb to carry his future much adored daughter. No matter how much you love your child, a mother or a father cannot be replaced.

    • suze says:

      He now has a surrogate bill to pay monthly. For eighteen years.

    • BossyKat says:

      Yeah, despite all the IG adoration for his biological issue – presented to the world as a ‘pretty little princess,’ the guy strikes me as a misogynist.

      I believe the rumors that he’s deeply deeply closeted.

      He doesn’t respect women as we’ve seen by his past commentary – and that sometimes goes hand in hand with being closeted – it’s resentment at the other person (of the opposite sex) for not being able to live a life out loud in the same manner.

      It’s why he rented a 21 yr old womb and proceeded to try and grind her into the dirt.

      Much to his shock and surprise the young womb can use a telephone and hire legal representation that immediately put the kibbosh on his slander with some implied slander of her own (I.e., ‘do you really want the world to know why you, a middle aged douche who doesn’t even like women, hooked up with me?’) Obviously, he’s been cowed.

      Well done kid.

    • Naya says:

      He reminds me of Eminem. He loathes women but does some mental gymnastics to exclude that little girl from that hate. That mental gymnastics involves placing your daughter as the only female human being who is pure and good and rightfully belongs on that Madonna pedastal. See also Donald Trump. Heaven help that child if she ever ever falls off that pedastal of purity and perfection.

      • Jellybean says:

        He also seems to be extremely close to his 3 nieces, 2 sisters and mother, plus he seems to have unusually affectionate relationships with most of, if not all of the women he works with. Maybe he is double jointed?

  12. M says:

    I wish the best for the kid. She’s so cute.

  13. Sochan says:

    I just have an observation: it is amazing how different Sonni looks in every single one of these photos. She doesn’t even look like the same woman.

    • I Choose Me says:

      In the second pic – the one with her carrying the recycling, she looks like she’s lost some weight. Not a good look on her. The last pic with her daughter looks more like her in comparison to the first pic.

  14. Pandy says:

    KA-CHING!!!! Sonny made out like a bandit! Way to gold dig.

    • Sochan says:

      I’m not convinced she’s a gold digger. I’m leaning further and further towards the theory that she was a willing participant in Renner’s desire for a child. Somehow, at some point, things went south regarding their interpersonal relationship but I think that’s a variable that didn’t exist at the time of the original arrangement. Possibly in the original arrangement they intended to stay married a little longer but they ended up hating being together so it ended early, hence the acrimonious divorce proceedings. But I don’t think this relationship was real from the start.

  15. Easypeasy123 says:

    She has that baby looking like a ragamuffin.

    • FingerBinger says:

      She should dress her in expensive clothes she’ll grow out of in a month? The baby is dressed fine. She looks like a normal kid

  16. Dani says:

    $13k is a lot I feel, regardless of where you live. She could easily live in NYC, in a nice area, on $13k a month, A nice apartment would run her 3-4K and if she can’t get by on 9-10k for expenses for one adult and one child then that’s a whole ‘nother story.

    • cvb says:

      yes! I completely agree with you. 13,000 is a lot of money. You can live very lavishly on that. I wish I could make that kind of money. Heck even 2/3 of that is a nice living. To say otherwise is very insulting. Most people are making do with 40 grand a year and it’s not a fun life. If only I was rich sigh

  17. Prairiegirl says:

    Well. The blind on has been solved, I see (the couple signing their divorce papers over the holidays when no one’s paying attention). Yet here we are, paying attention. GOSSIP NEVER SLEEPS. :p

  18. cakecakecake says:

    what a cute pic of him and his daughter, no comments about the rest. smdh

  19. Holmes says:

    Is his eyeliner tattooed on?

  20. serena says:

    Good for him. She signed the prenup, so that’s what she gets.

  21. lucy2 says:

    Their whole situation seemed odd to me from the start, but good that they got it all settled. Hopefully they are civil with each other for the sake of the kid.

    I’ve grown to really dislike him over the last year or so, for unrelated reasons. I used to think he was kind of annoying but a great actor, and now I don’t even want to see him in stuff.

  22. Browniecakes says:

    You mean Ava gets $13K a month. Sonni gets zippo. Someday Sonni will need to find another way to generate income. I am surprised to see Ava’s face. Jeremy’s photos always hide her face. I know there were efforts made by Garner and Berry to make laws to protect kids from being papped.
    I follow him on Twitter and FB – he absolutely loves that kid.

  23. Abby_J says:

    Considering that his daughter appears to be with him at least half the time, I’d say $13,000 a month is more than enough.

    Say what you want about the guy, but he obviously loves that little girl and I doubt he’s going to let her go without anything even if $13,000 somehow wasn’t enough.

    Whatever happened, I hope they are both decent human beings and at least aren’t trashing each other to her.
