A judge has refused to order Avengers star Jeremy Renner to perform drug tests required by his ex-wife, Sonni Pacheco. He accused him of being drunk and high while their seven year old daughter Ava was with him.
The Oscar-nominated actor "has a long history of alcohol and drug abuse that has persisted since marriage through divorce and trial," and blew Pacheco up in legal documents asking the Los Angeles Supreme Court to take him on a drug test to force.
After a hearing on Monday in downtown LA, Judge Anne Richardson denied the Canadian-born actress's motion, ruling, in writing, "The court finds that there aren't enough facts to order the drug test."
During the custody negotiations, not everything followed the 49-year-old Renner. The judge also ordered him to pay a "reasonable fee" of $ 40,000 "within seven days" for Pacheco's legal fees.

The former couple – he in a sharp tan suit, dark tie and blue mask and she wore a black silk blouse, tight black jeans and a mask – avoided eye contact when they went to court with their lawyers.
Also with Renner in court yesterday was his therapist, Beverly Hills psychiatrist and "Shrink to the Stars", Dr. Charles Sophy, who founded rap mogul Dr. Dre and former Spice Girl Mel B are among his high profile patients.
After listening to a request from Renner's attorney Susan Wiesner that the hearing should be sealed because much of the evidence – including Renner's medical records – was supposed to be confidential, LA Supreme Court Justice Anne Richardson granted the request and ruled leave the press and the public on.
However, the judge's two written orders after the two-hour hearing at least shed some light on what happened behind the closed doors of the court: the denial of the drug test and the awarding of attorneys' fees of $ 40,000 to Pacheco.
What the judge's order didn't address, however, was Pacheco's additional request to the court to also get Renner to undergo the COVID-19 tests after she accused him of "endangering" daughter Ava by using her mask-free a number of parties celebrated young woman.
The previous model claimed last month Renner 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.
The judge ruled in a written order, "The court finds that there are not enough facts to order the drug test." He ordered him to pay Pachecho's legal fees of $ 40,000
Pacheco previously claimed in documents from DailyMail.com that Renner flown out women amid the pandemic and partied without a mask. One of the women who allegedly visited Renner, Kimia Hangafarin, posted this photo with Renner from the July 4th weekend
She also accused the Hollywood star of "flying back and forth while taking orders at home in Reno" with her daughter Ava. One of the women from the weekend posted this photo of Renner on her fire truck from the fourth weekend of July in Reno
Pacheco said an anonymous Instagram user posted her Instagram posts showing people inside Jeremy's house, including several young women pictured here who are believed to be wearing "Camp Renner" shirts
"I am very concerned that Jeremy is not practicing social distancing and exposing Ava (and me due to our joint custody) to unnecessary exposure to COVID-19 and encouraging him to undergo tests," said Pacheco, Jan. ) in court documents.
She claimed the star flew with Ava "back and forth to Reno while ordering at home".
Renner has 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," "as did hundreds of thousands of others People".
Yesterday's trial was the latest stand in a vicious custody battle that has raged for more than two years. 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, saying the mark was from a seat belt in a car that "jammed" her.
Pacheco has accused Renner of regularly using drugs while he was supposed to take care of Ava, firing a gun around the house, and threatening to kill himself while Ava slept
Renner met Pacheco in Vancouver on the set of Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol. They greeted Ava in March 2013 and tied the knot 10 months later, in January 2014, but she filed for divorce in December 2014
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 with women partying and staying over there while Ava there was .
She also insisted that her ex-husband owed more than half a million dollars in spouse and child benefits.
Renner resisted saying that Pacheco was "unstable" and launched a campaign of lies to smear him and prevent him from seeing his baby daughter.
He also accused Pacheco of being motivated by revenge after allegedly refusing her overtures in order for the former couple to get back together.
In May, he alleged she "misused" nearly $ 50,000 in daughter Ava's trust fund and asked the court to reduce his monthly payments to his ex from $ 30,000 to around $ 11,000. The coronavirus crisis had a heavy burden on his film income.
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."
Affidavits from friends and a former employee say Renner left cocaine in his little daughter's path around the house and got drunk in his hot tub. Then he had a threesome while his daughter was wandering around the house at a party.
Two ex-girlfriends filed copies of text messages and wrote affidavits claiming Renner constantly sent them pictures and nude photos using a Snapchat account named after his daughter's initials and date of birth, and even one of them dressed in an embroidered dress with the name of his six year old.
Pecheco has written in previous court records that she is worried for her daughter's safety while she is with her father.
