Avengers: Endgame star Jeremy Renner’s battle for custody with his ex-wife Sonni Pacheco over their six-year-old daughter Ava has taken a wild turn with some shocking allegations from a two friends and his former nanny. Both Renner and Pancheco have accused the other of drug use in their custody battle, but now Pacheco has others cosigning on her accusations.
According to court documents obtained by Radar Online, Renner’s friend Lily Faget claimed that she met the actor in his Hollywood home a few years ago, and there were also two other “barely clothed” women there, with one looking “young enough that she was underage.”
Faget claims that it appeared to her that Renner and his friends had “been up all night on a bender,” and she added that one of the girls told her that “they had been doing cocaine.” She also wrote that Renner claimed to be “helping these girls.” Faget added that Renner told her Pacheco was ruining his life, and he was going to call Child Protective Services because she was trying to take away his baby girl.
Carmen Orford, another friend of Renner’s, filed a declaration claiming that the 48-year-old actor sends her “nude pictures and videos of him touching himself” via Snapchat, as well as “unprompted pornographic videos and GIFs.”
Renner’s former nanny Naomi Moore also filed a statement with the court claiming that Renner shot a gun into the ceiling of his home and threatened to kill himself in November 2018 after a night of drinking.
Faget was with Renner that night, along with a friend named David. And Faget said that Renner told her outside of the Black Rabbit Rose jazz club in LA that he was having suicidal thoughts. She also says Renner told her that Pacheco is unstable, bleeding him dry, and trying to ruin his life.
“I’m going to blow my brains out,” Renner allegedly said.
Later, after Renner and Faget arrived at his home, she says the actor shot a gun into the ceiling and he also placed it in his mouth a few times. Moore was sleeping in the other room when she heard the gunshot.
A rep for Renner said this week that “The well-being of his daughter Ava has always been and continues to be the primary focus for Jeremy. This is a matter for the court to decide. It’s important to note the dramatizations made in Sonni’s declaration are a one-sided account made with a specific goal in mind.”
Renner has also submitted drug test results to prove that he isn’t using drugs, and he said that Pacheco has no evidence that he has substance abuse issues. Renner believes that Pacheco has “recruited” the nanny and her friends to make false allegations against him.
When Jeremy Renner and Sonni Pacheco divorced five years ago, they agreed to joint custody of their daughter. But now, are seeking full legal and physical custody.
