AceShowbiz - Jeremy Renner has requested to reduce his $30,000-a-month child support payments for daughter Eva, as the coronavirus pandemic has caused a massive decline in his income.
The 49-year-old actor filed documents obtained by TMZ.com which stated that his financial circumstances have dramatically changed in recent weeks. In the papers, he said that while he knew his income would drop because his work on "The Avengers" movies is done, he did have some work lined up. However, after the Covid-19 virus shook the world, "it is likely that most productions will not resume again prior to the end of the year. As such, the projects that I had previously lined up to film this year are likely cancelled or postponed."
According to the website, Renner is covering Eva's housing, food, transportation and clothing, by paying ex-wife Sonni Pacheco $30,000 a month, tax free. And while he doesn't state an exact figure for the amount to be reduced to, he does say that he believes Eva's "reasonable needs" cost around $11,000-a-month.
Renner has also asked the judge to allow his business managers to have sole control over the money in Eva's account, due to his trust issues with Sonny, who he claims is using the money as a "slush fund" to support her lifestyle.
"Sonny's voracious appetite for Jeremy's money has no end in sight," Renner's attorney states in the documents.
