Jeremy Renner is done playing a superhero and wants to be done paying super high child support.
The “Avengers” star hopes a judge will allow him to pay less in child support to ex Sonni Pacheco as the coronavirus has significantly altered his anticipated income for the year. According to the documents he filed in Los Angeles Monday, which were obtained by TMZ.
With his record-breaking Marvel franchise a thing of the past. Renner said he knew he wouldn’t make as much this year. Though he did have projects on the horizon, at least until the virus. Formally known as COVID-19, engulfed the planet and cost many their jobs.
At the time of publication, over 441,000 cases. And close to 20,000 associated deaths were reported worldwide. According to the running tally by Johns Hopkins University & Medicine’s Coronavirus Resource Center.
“It is likely that most productions will not resume again prior to the end of the year,” read the documents, according to the outlet. “. As such, the projects that I had previously lined up to film this year are likely cancelled or postponed.”
Together, the 49-year-old “Hurt Locker” star and Pacheco share daughter Ava Berlin Renner, who will turn 7 on Saturday.
Renner says that at the moment, he’s giving Pacheco monthly payments of about $30,000 tax-free for their little girl’s housing, clothing, food, and transportation.
“Sonni’s voracious appetite for Jeremy’s money has no end in sight,” the Oscar nominee’s lawyer said in documents, which claim Pacheco is using the child support as a “slush fund” for herself and to fight him for custody in court.
Due to the allegations. Renner wants the judge to not just reduce the support he owes Pacheco. But allow his business managers sole control over the funds for Ava. Renner believes his daughter’s “reasonable needs” amount to about $11,000 monthly.
So Renner and Pacheco tied the knot in early 2014. And split by the end of the year, after just 10 months of marriage.
