Ava’s mother is a Canadian-born former model turned sculptor who grew up in Pitt Meadows. She married the father of her child in January 2014.
Not a year had passed and Pacheco, in December 2014, filed for divorce from Renner citing the reason as irreconcilable differences. The Pitt Meadows native asked for legal separation at Los Angeles County Superior Court. According to the cited documents, Pacheco, who was then in her mid-20s, sought spousal support, sole physical custody, and joint legal custody of their then-toddler.

“It’s OK Mommy, it was an accident. I told him to never do it again.”

Ava’s mother said Renner was an absentee, drug addict, abusive, threatening to one who missed on child support payments and even stealing her passport.
The Canadian mother of Berlin said their nanny witnessed Renner once left cocaine on a bathroom counter that was within reach of their daughter. Sonni also reported their nanny overhearing Jeremy say he was going to her house to kill her and then kill himself, because “it was better, that, Ava had no parents than to have [Sonni] as a mother.”
Worth mentioning is the fact that Renner reportedly shooting off the ceiling of his LA resident made headlines in 2018. Apparently, the actor was originally going to kill himself, having put a gun in his mouth in front of his ex-wife, Sonni Pacheco. All while his daughter, Berlin was sleeping in her room.
On the other hand, Berlin’s Hollywood father claimed her mother didn’t have a suitable environment for their daughter’s growth. The actor accused her of smoking and drinking in front of their daughter, misusing funds, leaving Ava alone to having psychological problems.

The actor, on numerous occasions, has said the well-being of his daughter Ava has always been and continues to be his primary focus. These were mostly against his ex’s allegations that he was an absentee father, abusive, and missing child support.
Additionally, Renner’s Instagram post seemingly tells Ava adores being with her father. From cute photos of Ava doing her nails to traveling with her dad, it’s evident that Jeremy is one dad who loves hanging out with his daughter. Not to mention, Ava was his date at the 2017 Oscars.
