Avengers star Jeremy Renner appears to have buried the hatchet with ex-wife Sonny Pacheco, who is staying at his Nevada ranch, DailyMail.com has learned exclusively.
The hockey actor, 52, had a bitter years-long custody battle with actress and model Pacheco over their 10-year-old daughter, Ava, which led to lurid allegations of wild parties with a trio and drug use, and claims that Rainer fired a gun inside the home even as she Bites the girl too.
But after Rainer’s near-fatal accident on Jan. 1 when he was run over by his own snowplow, the warring parents seem to have patched things up.
A video shot at Renner’s ranch near Reno and posted on Instagram Tuesday by his friend Rory Millikin, who co-hosts his Disney+ series Renarvation, shows Pacheco inside the home.
Jeremy Renner’s years-long custody battle with actress and model Sonny Pacheco over their 10-year-old daughter, Ava (pictured together), has drawn allegations of cheating against the actor.
Months after Renner’s death, however, Pacheco was seen spending time at his former Lake Tahoe ranch, in an Instagram video shared by Renner’s friend and co-host Rory Millikin on Tuesday.
A day earlier, Pacheco posted a forest creek on his Instagram, matching the location of an earlier photo he posted of Rainer’s niece Kayla’s boyfriend while visiting the actor’s Nevada mountain ranch.
Pacheco, 35, is carrying a baby bottle in the clip, presumably for her four-month-old daughter Wilder, who she had with ice hockey player Nate Thompson, 38.
A video Pacheco posted on his Instagram Monday of a forest creek he hiked past also matches the location of an earlier photo he posted when Rainer’s niece Kayla’s boyfriend was visiting the ranch.
The posts indicate that Renner’s ex-wife has been staying at his farm for several days.
There are also hints that her relationship with her new baby-daddy may be on the rocks.
Pacheco no longer follows the NHL star on Instagram and the two appear to have deleted each other’s photos on their social media profiles.
Pacheco did not respond to requests for comment.
The actress, along with Renner’s friends and ex-girlfriends during her divorce, made shocking claims in court documents that the Avengers star once fired a gun on the roof of her home while her daughter slept, put a gun to her mouth and threatened her. To commit suicide, the trio partied wildly with drugs he found lying around his house while Ava was there and told a friend at a nightclub in 2018 that he wanted to ‘get rid’ of his ex-wife.
Using texts and doctor’s notes as evidence, Pacheco claims in court filings that Renner even bit their daughter and said she was referred to the Department of Children and Family Services.

The actor later shared a photo showing his bruised face, with more than 30 broken bones to go with it, thanking friends and fans for their support.
Pacheco appears to have moved on with retired NHL player Nathan Thompson, with the couple welcoming their first child together, daughter Wilder Reign, on March 21.
Both Pacheco and Thompson shared the first photo of their first child together on their Instagram stories on March 24, which also happened to be Pacheco’s 35th birthday.
The two ex-girlfriends submitted copies of the text messages and wrote affidavits claiming Rainer constantly sent them ‘d**k pictures’ and nude photos using a Snapchat account with his daughter’s initials and date of birth. Renner even dressed an ex in a gown embroidered with Ava’s name, the former flame claims in an affidavit.
Pacheco wrote in previous court filings that she was ‘terrified’ for her daughter’s safety when she spent time with her father.
Renner has always denied any wrongdoing and argued that he was a safe and loving father.
Her lawyers previously told DailyMail.com that Pacheco has ‘repeatedly tried to use the alleged child custody issues as a way to demand more money from her’.
Renner met Pacheco in Vancouver on the set of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. They welcomed Ava in March 2013 and tied the knot in January 2014.
Pacheco filed for divorce just 11 months later.
In 2020, the actor, who earned $20 million for Avengers: Endgame and has an estimated net worth of $50 million, asked a judge to reduce his monthly child support payments for his daughter from $30,000 to $11,000.
At the time, Pacheco slammed her ex for ‘another attempt to cut the funds I depend on for our child.’
In court documents, Renner accused Pacheco of using child support payments as a ‘slush fund’ for a high-end lifestyle and expensive court battles against him.
Renner was joined by close friend Rory Millikin (far left), as well as film producers Romilda De Luca and Patrick Costello, during his first red carpet appearance since his accident in April.
The Avengers star was spotted using a cane while promoting his documentary mini-series Regeneration with his daughter Ava, 10, in April.
Hours after the start of the new year, Rainer suffered a collapsed chest and a fractured upper torso when he was dragged under a seven-ton avalanche on his Lake Tahoe property.
In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com at the time, Pacheco hit out at her ex’s ‘lies’ and said she was trying to protect her daughter after ‘seven years of hell’ in her relationship with Renner.
On New Year’s Day this year, two-time Oscar nominee Rainer was plowing snow in his neighborhood in Mount Rose, Nevada — halfway between Reno and Lake Tahoe — when he went out to help a family member whose car got stuck.
His giant 14,000-pound industrial vehicle tossed him, landing him with more than 30 broken bones and a collapsed lung.
In an interview with ABC News in April, he said, ‘I lost a lot of flesh and bone in this experience. ‘But I refueled and refilled with love and titanium.’
She said that while in hospital in a critical condition, she wrote a farewell note to her family on her phone and thought to herself: ‘What does my body look like? Am I just going to be a spine and a brain like a science experiment?’
Doctors rebuilt his rib cage with metal and used metal plates to reattach his eye sockets. He now has a titanium rod and screw in his leg.
