According to TMZ, the film star's former spouse — who he split with in 2015 — claimed in legal documents in 2019 that Renner, 50, was under the influence of drugs and alcohol when he allegedly shoved a gun in his mouth and threatened to kill himself. Pacheco also said that he was telling people at a club that he wanted to kill her as he “could not deal with her anymore, and he just wanted her gone.”

Now the Wind River actor has completely shut down questioning about anything having to do with the allegations.

During an interview for the November issue of Men's Health, Renner said, “I don’t respond publicly or privately to nonsense."

“It only empowers it. … If you respond to it, you give it gas. I don’t fuel s—t fires. I just don’t do it. I refuse to," the American Hustle actor explained.

When the allegations surfaced, Renner's representative said in a statement to TMZ, “The well-being of his daughter Ava has always been and continues to be the primary focus for Jeremy. This is a matter for the court to decide."

"It’s important to note the dramatizations made in Sonni‘s declaration are a one-sided account made with a specific goal in mind,” the statement concluded.

In August of 2020, according to The Blast, The Bourne Legacy star scored a major victory in their nasty divorce battle after his former spouse filed a motion for Renner to be subjected to a court ordered drug test — the judge in the case shut down the request.

Pacheco originally claimed that Renner had a "long history of alcohol and drug abuse which has persisted since before their marriage, through divorce and post-judgment." The judge made the ruling that the court found "there are insufficient facts to order the drug test.”
