Jim Carrey has a lot of explaining to do!
In addition to allegedly giving her the prescription drugs that killed her, the funny man is now being accused of giving his late ex girlfriend Cathriona White three different sexually transmitted diseases, lying about it and then breaking up with her, thus triggering her suicide.
The accusations come from White’s estranged husband Mark Burton, who is suing the Liar Liar actor for wrongful death.
Burton, who filed the lawsuit earlier this week, amended the lawsuit and now alleges that White learned in 2013 that Carrey had given her Herpes Type 1, Herpes Type 2 and gonorrhea. To make matters worse, apparently the actor pressured her to keep quiet.
The amended documents claim that White texted Carrey in February 2013 when she feared she had contracted an STD.
The new complaint states Carrey had sex with White and did not tell her that she was at risk or that he had STDs. The documents also suggest that the 54-year-old actor tried to downplay the symptoms and tried to convince her someone else gave it to her after doctors informed her that she did have STDs.
The documents also say that when the late makeup artist confronted the actor that he ‘manipulated’ and ‘threatened’ her, using his ‘handlers and attorneys to silence her.”
Burton,also claims that before White’s suicide in 2015, she wrote Carrey a letter saying that she was “damaged goods” and that the STDs would make it difficult for her to find anyone else.
Burton also made a statement to The Wrap on Thursday, saying that he can not “stand idly by while Mr Carrey and his handlers deceive the world about what they did to Cat.”
The outraged husband added, “How dare they invoke her memory in an effort to save Mr Carrey’s false persona … This is a search for the truth and people will now learn about the real Jim Carrey and his treatment of women … I urge other women who have been exploited and injured by him and his reckless behavior to come forward and tell their stories.”
We know it’s a crazy story — but we actually believe it!
Meanwhile, Carrey dismissed the latest allegations, claiming Burton was trying to profit over her death. Carrey’s lawyer, Marty Singer, told TMZ the amended lawsuit is “categorically disputed.”
On September 28, 2015, White was found dead in her home in Sherman Oaks, Calif. The Los Angeles County coroner’s office later said that the Irish-born make-up artist died from overdosing on prescription drugs, including Ambien, Propranol and Percocet (oxycodone).
