Jeremy Renner’s two-decades-younger ex-wife, Sonni Pacheco (who at one point accused him of fraud and holding her passport hostage), recently filed documents asking for a change in custody of their 6-year-old daughter Ava Berlin. They currently have a 50-50 legal and physical split. But out of nowhere, Sonni demanded sole custody and requested that any visits Jeremy has with Ava be supervised by a court-appointed monitor. Jeremy has responded to Sonni’s filing, and in a twist that no one saw coming, he’s gone ahead and made things exponentially more dramatic by also asking for sole custody.
TMZ says Jeremy just filed legal custody documents in which he requests sole legal and physical custody of Ava. As if that wasn’t dramatic enough, Jeremy has also requested that any visits Ava gets with her mommy be supervised. Hmmmm…where have I heard this one before?
Jeremy didn’t specify why he feels like he needs sole custody, or why Sonni needs to be supervised while she plays tea party with Ava. In the past, Sonni has accused Jeremy of keeping a collection of unlocked guns in his house. However, Jeremy fought back with claims that Sonni is a drunk mommy who loves to ditch her kid and party. But Jeremy? The only stimulant he’s into is coffee, which helps him keep up with his precious little angel!

Sonni doesn’t have social media, so we don’t have any subtle acts of #blessedmom cuteness to measure Jeremy’s against.
I joke, but let’s face it – it’s probably safe to assume that when this goes to the hearing stage (which TMZ said earlier this week is scheduled for November 7th), we’re going to get more drama. Sonni is going to walk into the hearing room in a bullet-proof vest, with her passport, driver’s license, and Ralph’s card locked in a clear briefcase handcuffed to her wrist. And because Jeremy is an actor, I’m guessing he’ll lean into his Perfect Daddy image by studying a series of TV dads and picking one to copy. But which one? The obvious choice is Danny Tanner, but I don’t know if Jeremy has the neck and jawline to pull off the pastel sweater-over-collared shirt look.
