Jeremy Renner’s ex-wife Sonny Pacheco is pleading with the court to force the actor to take a drug test out of concern for their young daughter’s well-being.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Sonny is back in court after the actor recently asked for his child support payments to be cut from $30k to $11k.
In newly filed documents, Sonny is asking the court to reschedule the hearing on the child support issues. She wants to be able to grill Jeremy and his business manager under oath during depositions before a decision is made.
In the past, Sonny has accused Jeremy of having substance abuse issues. Jeremy has denied the allegations and said he took drug tests which came back negative. In the new court docs, Sonny says she wants to see those drug test results from February 12 until now.
Further, she wants Jeremy to “undergo an immediate drug test conducted and supervised by an independent laboratory.” She says Jeremy has a “long history of alcohol and drug abuse which has persisted since before the parties’ marriage, through divorce and post-judgment.”
She mentions a 2019 incident where Jeremy “put a gun in his mouth, threatened to kill himself, and fired the gun into the ceiling while the parties minor daughter slept in a nearby bedroom.”
In regard to support, Sonny says Jeremy owes her over $500,000 in child support. She claims to be without funds to pay her attorneys or even fix her plumbing and toilet problem.
Sonny accuses Jeremy of being reckless when he has custody of Ava. She wants the court to order him to follow proper social distancing during the pandemic and take a COVID test. She claims he has not been following the safety guidelines and allowed “several young women” to be around their daughter at his Reno home without wearing masks.
