The estranged husband of Jim Carrey’s late girlfriend is suing him. Mark Burton says it’s Jim’s”immense wealth and celebrity status” that contributed to his wife’s Cathriona White’s suicide. According to the suit Cathriona overdosed on a mixture of pills that were all prescribed to Jim Carry. The wrongful death lawsuit also states that Jim tried to cover up his involvement.
Jim Carrey has responded to the accusations with a statement to USA Today saying, “What a terrible shame. It would be easy for me to get in a back room with this man’s lawyer and make this go away, but there are some moments in life when you have to stand up and defend your honor against the evil in this world.”
