Hawkeye is pretty handy in a fight, but it's a real life battle that Jeremy Renner's currently facing.
The custody battle between Jeremy Renner and his ex-wife Sonni Pacheco is getting nasty. TMZ reports that Pacheco's lawyer is currently telling an LA court judge that Renner's refusal to line his pool with security fencing is endangering the life of Renner and Pacheco's 2-year-old daughter, Ava Berlin.
Jeremy has allegedly counter-argued that his daughter is perfectly safe because of a rather Avengers-style solution: he has a laser detection system set up over both his pool and his Koi fish pond that would alert him if Ava fell into the pond.
TMZ is rather unclear on this matter; perhaps the lasers are triggered to alert Jeremy before the kid falls in the water?
The pool debacle is not the first issue Sonni and Jeremy have had in the ongoing custody and divorce case. Sonni Pachecho has recently told courts that Jeremy refuses to respect their daughter's privacy by posting pictures of Ava on Facebook, while reportedly spearheading her own attack on her husband's privacy with threats to release intimate videos of him unless he complies with a $13k-per-month child support agreement... Jeremy himself has not kept quiet during proceedings, either. Both sides are set on going to trial and refusing to back down.
Ah, well, at least Hawkeye's on-screen family life is beautiful. Let's hope that nothing comes along to spoil that...
