Jeremy Renner, worth $50M, accuses ex-wife Sonni Pacheco of swindling $50,000 from daughter's trust fund
Jeremy Renner has alleged that his ex-wife Sonni Pacheco exploited their seven-year-old daughter Ava's trust fund for her own personal use. According to People, the court documents say that she transferred around $50,000 in less than two years. Not just that, he accused Pacheco of making another transaction of over $10,000 to her personal account.
The court document read, "In an email to Mr. Renner’s business manager, Jeffrey Jacobs, dated April 23, 2019, [Pacheco] admitted transferring funds from the minor’s trust account to her personal account in violation of the Court’s Order, stating: 'The money transfers to my bank were to keep my afloat/provide [the minor] Christmas presents/birthday gift bags and essentials for her bday party - after all my savings were spent on lawyers/child custody evaluator.'" It further said, "[Pacheco told] Jacobs in an email eight months later, 'Please note the number of $10,701.40 was taken out of this account to pay my property taxes for 6 months. Once again this year like the past years, mine and [A.R.]’s savings have been drained from attorney fees.'"
No sooner did Pacheco hear about the court statement, she told People, “I am sick of being continually bullied, having my name slandered, and the truth muted. Anyone, who is a parent knows that the most important thing in the world is their child’s health and safety." She continued, "Over the years it's hard to fathom what I’ve seen and what people have told me they’ve seen in regards to Jeremy's disturbing actions while our child is in his care. Unfortunately, these actions have landed me in a position to need to retain legal support, undergo a child custody evaluation, and now have a plan parent coordinator."
That's not all. She also added, “It is hard for me to stay muted because, after all this time, money, and energy spent putting safety measures in place to keep our daughter safe while once again in Jeremy's care, these measures are still being violated as of today." After Pacheco's statement, it makes one wonder who is lying and are the accusations simply a way to seek revenge?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, the actor is worth $50 million. His films have grossed over $9.8 billion worldwide and his performances in Marvel Cinematic Universe films have only helped boost his popularity. And this is not the first time Renner has made such an accusation against Pacheco. Earlier, in August 2019, he said Pacheco had withdrawn $20,000 to pay her attorney's fees and made another transaction of $12,000 to her personal checking account in September for the same reason. The couple's split has been embroiled with controversies. Earlier, his ex-wife revealed in a string of interviews how he threatened to kill her while he was drunk and high on cocaine and had threesomes after jacuzzi.
Back then, the 'American Pie' actress claimed that Renner put a gun in his mouth and said he would kill himself and fired the gun into the ceiling while Ava was asleep in her bedroom and left cocaine in the bathroom that was within Ava's reach. Lily Faget, a friend of Renner, who admitted to taking part in a threesome with the star, said she had witnessed him taking cocaine in his home with his daughter in the same house. According to the child support agreement in April 2018, Renner’s yearly payments will be at the most $200,000 and any amount over that limit will go into the trust fund. The leftover money will be in Ava's name when she turns 27. Pacheco and Renner got hitched in 2014 but got divorced a year later.
