Back in July, Jeremy Renner and his ex-wife Sonni Pacheco got into another tit-for-tat beef about money and their daughter Ava. Sonni and Jeremy’s divorce was finalized back in October of last year, but for some reason, it seemed like the lawyers didn’t work out how Jeremy and Sonni would split Ava’s nursery school costs, so that was July’s beef. Sonni claimed Jeremy wasn’t paying his half of the nursery school costs and Jeremy said that Sonni chose to send Ava to an expensive nursery school, so Sonni can pay for it out of the child support he gives her every month, because their divorce decree didn’t include any language about educational costs. Well, now it seems that Jeremy and Sonni have reached another agreement:
Jeremy Renner has settled yet another squabble with his ex-wife … this time over child support. Jeremy and Sonni Pacheco have been at war since she filed for divorce in December 2014 after being married for only 10 months. The latest beef — Sonni claimed Jeremy was behind in support payments for 3-year-old Ava. They agreed Jeremy would pay around $16k for support and another $24k for her lawyer and accountant.
She’s made numerous allegations against Jeremy, claiming he was an unsafe dad because he had guns in the house, despite the fact that he had the guns while they were married and she had no problem with them. She also griped that Jeremy was posting pics of the kid on social media.
Jeremy has said Sonni needs to move on with her life and get a job. He pays her $13k a month in child support but she wanted more.
I think they’re basically saying that Renner agreed to raise Sonni’s child support payments from $13K a month to $16K a month, and reading in between the lines from the previous reporting, the extra money is likely for Ava’s nursery school/education. Which… is pretty standard, right? The strange thing, to me, is that Jeremy and Sonni hadn’t worked out Ava’s educational costs last year as part of the divorce. I also think that Jeremy was in the wrong – he basically believed that Sonni should be paying for Ava’s education completely out of her child support – and this new arrangement reflects that, as does the fact that Renner had to pay for Sonni’s lawyers.
