Avengers star Jeremy Renner is being accused by his ex-wife, who says he threatened to murder her.
Sonni Pacheco made the claims amid their custody battle over daughter, Ava. She said the actor told someone that he could no longer deal with her and wanted her gone. She alleges that he had been under the influence of alcohol and coke at the time.
Pacheco also stated that a nanny had heard Renner say he was going to Pacheco’s house to kill her himself as “it was better that Ava had no parents than to have Sonni as a mother”.
Speaking further, Pacheco said the actor had put a gun in his mouth, threatening to kill himself and had fired a shot into the ceiling while their daughter had been asleep in her room. She revealed that he also left coke on a bathroom counter, which was within reach of their daughter.
Renner’s representative responded to the allegations via a statement to E! News, saying: “The well-being of his daughter has always been the primary focus for Jeremy. This is a matter for the court to decide. It is important to note the dramatizations made in Sonni’s declaration are a one-sided account made with a specific goal in mind”.
