Famous actor Jim Carrey has been targeted by a new lawsuit. The star was sued on wrongful death allegations and of course Carrey denied the claims. The actor said that the lawsuit was another “sham.”
As imagined, the lawsuit is linked to the death of Cathriona White. The new legal complaint was filed by Cathriona’s mother, after a previous lawsuit against Carrey was filed by Cathriona’s husband, Mark Burton. In the new lawsuit, Cathriona’s mom, Brigid Sweetman, claimed that the actor gave her late daughter three STDs, verbally abused her and provided her with the drugs that killed her.
The lawsuit was filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court. Sweetman said that Carrey knowingly provided her daughter with drugs and was a general bad influence on Cathriona. In her filing, Sweetman called Jim Carrey “heartless,” “pure evil” and “outrageous.” The lawsuit said that the actor had hidden from Cathriona that he tested positive for STDs. When she confronted him about this, the actor allegedly dumped his girlfriend and tried to make her stop talking about the diagnosis.
According to the lawsuit, the famous actor used a fake name to obtain some “highly addictive” illegal drugs, which he then gave to Cathriona, although he was aware that she had previously suffered from depression and had attempted to kill herself.
“Jim Carrey should be ashamed of what he did to my daughter. And he should be ashamed for how he has used his Hollywood attorneys to badmouth Cat’s husband Mark with the hope that nobody will hold him responsible for what he did,” an official statement from Sweetman said.
The statement also said that everyone should know who Jim Carrey really is and how he abused Cathriona. “As a family, we want the world to know the truth about who Jim Carrey really is – a man that will give your daughter three STDs, lie about it, call her terrible names and demean her, use his high priced lawyers to try and shut her and her family up, and then give her illegal drugs,” it added.
A lawyer for the actor responded to the allegations. He claimed that Cathriona and her mother cut ties before she died and claimed that the two have had a “contentious relationship.”
