This morning Jim Carrey facing a wrongful death lawsuit claiming he is responsible for the overdose suicide of his on and off again girlfriend Cathriona White.
The bombshell lawsuit has been filed by Cathriona’s estranged husband Mark Burton who blames Carrey for her suicide.
Jim Carrey vowing to fight is calling it “a terrible shame” saying, ‘There are some moments in life where you have to stand up and defend your honor.”
Cathriona overdosed on prescription drugs and the estranged husband says Carrey used the fake name Arthur King to obtain and provide prescription drugs to White including, Ambien, Percocet and Propranolol despite knowing she was prone to suicide and depression. Those same drugs found in White’s home after her death.
The lawsuit claims Carrey sent a text message to White days after knowing she was dead as part of a cover up about her having his medication. And overnight Carrey told ABC News, “I will not tolerate this heartless attempt to exploit me or the woman I loved. Cat’s troubles were born long before I met her and sadly her tragic end was beyond anyone’s control.”
