Jeremy Renner claims the pandemic cost him MILLIONS, court documents show


Avengers star Jeremy Renner claims the coronavirus pandemic has cost him millions of dollars.

The whopping $ 344,000 a month he raised for filmmaking has dried up, according to the star's court documents.

And now he's losing almost $ 20,000 a month, the Oscar winner emphasizes.

The 49-year-old racer revealed his falling income in the latest legal documents to be filed in the bitter, long-running custody battle he is waging with his ex-wife, Sonni Pacheco, over their seven-year-old daughter Ava.

The Bourne Legacy actor has asked Los Angeles Supreme Court Justice Anne Richardson to lower his monthly child support payments on his 29-year-old ex from $ 30,000 to $ 11,000.

"It's likely that most productions won't resume before the end of the year," he said of his stalled film career.

Pacheco asked the court to give Ava sole custody, saying Renner was an "unsuitable parent".

"So the projects I planned for the film earlier this year are likely to be canceled or postponed."

To back up his claim, Renner has now filed legal documents detailing how his income has been reduced to less than zero this year thanks to COVID-19.

He stated his average monthly net income for the three years from 2017 to 2019 at $ 344,649.

But by May of this year – amid the pandemic that nearly paralyzed Hollywood – his net income had fallen to a negative $ 18,368.

His monthly expenses run to nearly $ 98,000, according to Renner – who calls himself an "actor, singer, songwriter" in his new court record.

These expenses include $ 18,279 per month on the mortgage on his luxury nine-bedroom mansion in the upscale Laurel Canyon area of ​​LA, $ ​​5,651 per month on groceries and housewares, and $ 3,393 per month on laundry and cleaning.

Plus $ 11,438 per month to maintain his vacation home in Reno, Nevada.

Even so, Renner doesn't claim to be broke. Far from it. He lists nearly $ 19 million in assets, including his LA home valued at roughly $ 7 million, his Reno home valued at roughly $ 2 million, and more than $ 1 million in stocks and bonds and $ 135,000 in cash and savings.

In recently filed court documents, Renner put his median monthly net income for the three years from 2017 to 2019 at $ 344,649. But by May of this year - amid the pandemic that nearly paralyzed Hollywood - his net income had fallen to a negative $ 18,368

The custody battle between the former couple over daughter Ava has been raging for more than two years, and another hearing is planned for next Thursday, September 17th.

Last month, Judge Richardson refused to order Renner to perform drug tests, which Pacheco requested after she accused him of being drunk and high while daughter Ava was with him.

The actor "has a long history of alcohol and drug abuse, persisting through divorce and trial before marriage," has beaten Pacheco in legal documents and ordered the court to compel him for a drug test.

After a closed hearing in downtown LA, Judge Richardson denied the Canadian-born actress's motion, ruling, in written order, "The court finds that there are not enough facts to order the drug test."

But the judge ordered Renner to pay $ 40,000 in Pacheco's legal fees.

Pacheco also asked the court to order Renner to undergo the COVID-19 tests after accusing him of "compromising" Ava by having a mask-free party with a number of young women.

The former model claimed her ex-husband flew several pretty girls to his Reno, Nevada mansion, where they partied and shared photos of themselves wearing Camp Renner T-shirts – but no masks.

"I am very concerned that Jeremy is not practicing social distancing and is putting Ava (and me, due to our joint custody) at risk of unnecessary exposure to COVID-19 and asking him to undergo tests," Pacheco said in court documents.

She claimed the star flew with Ava "back and forth to Reno while ordering at home".

Renner denied her allegations, telling DailyMail.com that Ava was not in Reno while the young women were there and that the star "flew while following CDC recommendations," and so did hundreds of thousands of others People".

Renner and Pacheco separated in December 2014 after a marriage that lasted only 10 months, and in April 2018 they agreed to share custody of Ava with Renner, who owns his ex-$ 30,000 per month in child support plus up to 200,000 Pays USD USD per year to Ava's trust fund.

But their 50/50 custody agreement quickly degenerated into finger pointing and bitter court appearances.

Pacheco asked the court to give Ava sole custody, saying Renner was an "unsuitable parent".

She alleged Ava told her that her father Renner bit her and left a mark on her shoulder, a claim the actor denied.

She also accused Renner of regularly taking drugs while he was supposed to take care of Ava, firing a gun around the house and threatening to kill himself while Ava slept, and having a "revolving door" of women partying and staying over there, while Ava was there.

In addition, she insisted that her ex-husband owed more than half a million dollars in spouse and child benefits.

Renner struggled, saying Pacheco was "unstable" and had launched a campaign of lies to smear him and prevent him from seeing his baby daughter.

He accused Pacheco of being motivated by revenge after allegedly refusing her overtures in order for the former couple to get back together. And he claimed she "misused" nearly $ 50,000 in daughter Ava's trust fund.

Renner's attorneys accused Pacheco of using his judicial disbursements to her as a "slush fund" for a lavish lifestyle, adding, "Sonni's insatiable appetite for Jeremy's money has no end in sight."
