Over the past month, Carrey has been making headlines related to the death of his late girlfriend, Cathriona White. White's ex-husband, Mark Burton, and mother, Brigid Sweetman, have separately filed wrongful death lawsuits against the actor. Sweetman's suit alleges that Carrey provided her daughter with prescription drugs.
According to PEOPLE magazine, in recent court documents, Carrey claims the allegations are “based on categorical lies concocted by Sweetman in collaboration with White’s ‘green card’ husband with whom White never lived as husband and wife, and whom she married only to avoid deportation to Ireland.”
Sweetman’s lawyer responded to the filing in a statement: “Earlier today, Jim Carrey filed a baseless motion with the court as part of his continued attack on a grieving mother. His conduct is disgusting and dishonest. Who attacks a mother of a dead girl?”
Sweetman and Burton individually believe that Carrey acquired the drugs that killed White under the false name “Arthur King” and gave them to 30-year-old, despite having the knowledge that she was prone to depression and had previously attempted suicide. Sweetman also alleges that Carrey gave White “three STDs without warning her.”
In the newly filed court documents, Carrey’s legal team states, “There is absolutely no evidence that Carrey furnished his prescription medications to White. Rather, she stole them.” Therefore, the documents claim, Carrey “simply cannot be held liable” for White’s suicide.
