Jeremy Renner’s contentious court battle with estranged wife Sonni Pacheco has supposedly come to an end.

The Hurt Locker actor wed Sonni Pacheco in January 2014, but the Canadian model filed for divorce from him just a few months later in December.

The pair have been embroiled in a contentious court battle ever since Sonni’s filing, but according to TMZ the heated litigation is coming to an end as the pair have managed to reach an accord.

The website reports Jeremy has agreed to pay $13,000 per month in child support payments towards the care of their two-year-old daughter Ava.

Although Sonni was fighting for full custody of their child, the court awarded equal custodial rights to both parents, with mother and father each sharing 50 per cent of caretaking duties. Sonni will not receive spousal support of any kind due to the short length of their marriage and the fact a prenuptial agreement was in place when they tied the knot.

Sonni cited “irreconcilable differences” when she filed for divorce last year and things turned ugly between them in court.

TMZ previously reported Jeremy accused Sonni of blackmailing him if he didn’t ensure she got a Green Card. Apparently she threatened to release intimate videos of the Avengers: Age of Ultron star if he didn’t help her become a permanent United States resident.

Sonni previously made a number of allegations against her former husband in her bid for full custody. She indicated Jeremy’s home was unsafe for their daughter as his pool was not properly fenced off. In addition to this, Sonni apparently raised concern over her former spouse’s gun collection, claiming one of his firearms was out in the open behind the bar.
