Jeremy Rennerex-wife of Sonni Pacheco says he hasn’t paid more than half a million dollars in child support arrears and now demands that the Avengers star disburses the money to pay her attorney’s fees and other costs in their ongoing divorce battle.

In recently filed documents obtained exclusively by In touch, Pacheco, 29, alleges that Renner, 49, has asked the court to reduce his child support payments, seeking redress for his efforts to keep their 7-year-old daughter, Ava, safe. Pacheco claims the actor refused to pay around $ 503,000 in child support.

“Jeremy fought back against me again by withholding and refusing to pay the hundreds of thousands of dollars in child support that he was ordered to pay me before April 1, 2020, forcing me to use what scarce resources were available to me. I have to pay for Ava’s housing and expenses to maintain his lifestyle without the extra support from Jeremy, ”Pacheco said in his statement.

In the affidavit, Pacheco asks the court to order Renner to pay more than $ 100,000 in attorneys’ fees and other costs just weeks after the Injured locker star has filed a petition with the court to reduce her monthly child support payments. The actor said several of his film projects have been postponed due to the coronavirus.

The former couple reached a child support agreement in April 2018 in which the Bourne’s legacy The actor has agreed to deposit payments for Ava’s education-related expenses, as well as childcare, medical and school expenses. The agreement stipulated that Renner’s annual payments would not exceed $ 200,000, but any amount over that limit would go into a trust fund for Ava that would be available when the child turns 27.

However, in earlier court documents filed in May, Renner accused Pacheco of embezzling nearly $ 50,000 from their daughter’s trust fund. Pacheco, sculptor and model, denied the allegations and said his ex “was indeed seeking to pay himself alimony to unilaterally control my spending for Ava.”

In her recent statement, Pacheco says their contentious divorce prevented her from seeking work as a real estate agent after Renner “dragged” her name through the mud. “As a result, several clients refused to work with me,” says Pacheco.

Although she still has her real estate license, Pacheco says she supports herself and Ava by selling her sculptures. However, the constant disputes with her ex have exhausted her resources, Pacheco adds.

“I’m doing this because all of my funds are going to pay the attorney fees due to the lingering concerns about Jeremy’s conduct and its potential impact on Ava’s safety and well-being, and now Jeremy is trying to reduce the burden further. support from Ava, “said Pacheco in his statement. “At the end of the day, I have minimal resources, almost no savings and minimal income. … Jeremy is hugely successful, earns millions of dollars a year (over $ 700,000 a month, according to his most recent income and expense statement) as a world-renowned actor, and owns millions of real estate and other assets.

Pacheco and Renner tied the knot in January 2014 after the birth of their daughter the previous year. The model filed for divorce in December 2015, and their separation has since been controversial.

Pacheco also writes in the statement that Jeremy verbally and emotionally assaulted her during the marriage and repeatedly told her that he wished she was dead. Pacheco says she did not seek a restraining order against Renner because she feared he would retaliate against her.

The two applied for sole legal and physical custody of Ava in court before reaching a custody deal in February. However, Pacheco says the actor failed to comply with some of the terms of the deal, causing him more concern for the safety and well-being of their child.

“I’m not sure if Jeremy is doing this intentionally to force me to incur more attorney fees to seek court intervention in enforcing his compliance, as he has done in the past, or if it does. causes emotional distress, ”says Pacheco.
