• Jeremy Renner's ex-wife, Sonni Pacheco, wants him to take a drug test and has requested to see the results of his previous tests, court documents say 
  • She also requested for Renner to be tested for COVID-19, claiming he didn't practice social distancing and had "several young women" in his home without masks
  • Pacheco said that this was for the safety of their 7-year-old child, Ava

Jeremy Renner's ex-wife, Sonni Pacheco, allegedly wants the actor to take a drug test for their daughter Ava's sake as their custody battle unearths previous substance abuse accusations.

Pacheco alleged in court papers obtained by The Blast that Renner had a long history of drug and alcohol abuse "which has persisted since before the parties’ marriage, through divorce and post-judgment.” Her statement comes after the "Avengers" star requested for his child support to be lowered from $30,000 to $11,000.

The 29-year-old reportedly wants Renner to “undergo an immediate drug test conducted and supervised by an independent laboratory” for Ava's safety. Pacheco also requested to see the results of the actor's drug tests, which the actor claims were negative, from Feb. 12 until now.

In the court documents, Renner's ex-wife cited an incident last year in which the actor put a gun in his mouth and threatened to take his own life before he fired toward the ceiling while their daughter "slept in a nearby bedroom."

In response to Pacheco's allegations, Renner's camp told Page Six that Ava's well-being remains the actor's priority and focus and asserted that his ex-wife's accusations were a "one-sided account made with a specific goal in mind."

The 49-year-old star also shot down Pacheco's drug abuse allegations, stating in the court documents, "There is absolutely no basis for this Court to grant the requested relief with respect to a drug test."

In addition to the drug abuse allegations, Pacheco claims that Renner didn't follow social distancing protocol when Ava was with him in his Reno home, thus she wanted him to take a coronavirus test. The Canadian claimed that her ex-husband had several young maskless women at his house around their daughter.

"[T]here is no basis for this Court to order Respondent to take a Covid test when there is no evidentiary basis that he has, or has been exposed to Covid," Renner's attorney said, according to the court documents.

Pacheco filed for divorce in 2014, less than a year after their marriage. In 2015, the exes agreed to share custody. In recent years, Renner and his ex have been returning to court due to their ongoing legal battle over child support and custody.

Pacheco claimed that Renner owes her half a million dollars in child support. She also said that she had no money to pay her lawyers and to fix her plumbing.

A hearing has been scheduled for Aug. 20.
