Jeremy Renner settles child support dispute

Jeremy Renner has settled another dispute with his ex-wife over child support.

The 45-year-old actor and his former partner Sonni Pacheco have been at loggerheads since they divorced in 2015 after spending just 10 months as a married couple.

In the latest dispute, Sonni claimed that the 'Avengers' actor was behind in child support payments for their three-year-old daughter Ava but he has now settled the issue by agreeing to pay $16,000 in child support as well as $24,000 for her lawyer and accountant.

Sonni has also claimed that 'American Hustle' actor has been posting too many pictures of their daughter on social media, despite Jeremy previously stating that he doesn't show Ava's face in order to "protect" her.

He said: "I still don't expose my baby's face, just to protect her or anyone in my family [who's] a minor. I just think that's not my decision to make. You know what I mean? You don't need to be world famous just because your jackass dad is."

The pair share joint custody of their daughter, with Jeremy paying $13,000 a month in child support. The costs for the star don't stop there, as he even has to pay his ex-wife 5 per cent of his earnings if he earns more than $2.3 million per year as part of their divorce settlement which was finalised in December 2015.

The constant arguments - which predominately centre around money - has led to Jeremy saying Sonni needs to move on with her life and get a job.

The actor - who recently reprised his role as Hawkeye in 'Captain America: Civil War' - denies Sonni's claims, and previously said that being a dad was the "best role" he's had.

He said: "[Fatherhood] really kind of changed my perspective on a lot of things. It's kind of screwed my career in a lot of ways. Because I don't really care about [my career] so much because I care about her so much. She's like number one in my life. And now I get to do movies on the side. Daddy's my best role to date, I think."
