Jim Carrey continues to reject all allegations made in the wrongful death suit brought against him by Brigid Sweetman, the mother of Cathriona White. Carrey and White were dating when White contracted STDs. She later killed herself. Carrey also denies having STDs.
However, the STD test submitted as evidence in the wrongful death suit shows positive results for multiple diseases.
According to the Daily Mail, a diagnostic test belonging to a ‘Jose Lopez’ shows that ‘Lopez’ tested positive for Herpes I and II, Chalmidya and Hepatitis after being tested on January 28, 2013, with the results being reported three days later according to the test.
The date of birth for Lopez is listed as January 17, 1962, which is also Carrey’s date of birth.
Sweetman and her attorney claim in court papers that ‘Jose Lopez’ is Jim Carrey.
‘Jose Lopez’ was the alias Carrey used for his medical records until September 3, 2013, when it was changed to ‘Arthur King’, the court documents state.
Sweetman’s lawyer, Michael Avenatti, submitted a declaration in the case on Thursday as well, stating: ‘After Carrey received the test results, he purposely hid the results from Ms. White, whom he was intimately involved with, and failed to inform her that he had tested positive for Hepatitis A, HSV (Herpes) I and II, and Chlamydia.
‘To make matters worse, Carrey then proceeded to have unprotected sex with Ms. White with full knowledge that he was STD positive, including on February 12, 2013 (two days before Valentine’s day and within weeks after learning the test results).
‘Even after doing so, he failed to inform Ms. White that he had likely just infected her with STDs and possibly hepatitis A. This was not only callous, it was criminal.’
Avenatti then goes on to claim in his declaration that Carrey and White had ‘unprotected sex’ again on Valentine’s Day.
‘[I]nstead of giving Ms. White flowers and chocolates, Carrey should have given her his STD test results and that, and he should have refrained from sex with her – THAT is what she deserved on Valentine’s Day.’
In text messages previously submitted in the case, White allegedly writes to Carrey concerned that she may have a sexually transmitted disease on February 20. SEE TEXT MESSAGES HERE.
White wrote to Carrey about finding ‘a couple of bumps’ and wanting to go get it ‘checked’ claims the initial complaint, which also includes screenshots of the text messages between the two.
Carrey writes back a brief message saying that he hopes White will be ‘OK’ and to enjoy a shoot she is working on.
White then appears to become more nervous, responding to a text sent from Carrey by writing: ‘I understand your [sic] worried. Imagine how I am feeling right now. I am the one who should be freaking out.’
She then states that she is sure the bumps are ‘just the abrasion thing [Carey] was talking about.’
Carrey responds to this by writing: ‘I hope your [sic] ok hun. It could be from someone before me. Doesn’t show up until you’re really stressed.’
He then adds that ‘it should be fine though.’
White’s ex-husband Mark Burton claimed in his initial complaint however that White was tested just before she began dating Carrey, so the STDs could not have come from another man.
When White then told Carrey this fact he ‘inexplicably’ ended their relationship within hours according to the complaint
Carrey’s lawyer Martin Singer said in a statement on Thursday in response to Avenatti’s declaration and the submission of the STD test as evidence: ‘This is just another desperate attempt by the attorney after Cathriona White’s own family distanced themselves from this sham lawsuit yesterday.
‘These distortions and false statements by the attorney do a disservice to Cathriona’s memory and to the truth. Cat White’s biological mother, Brigid Sweetman acknowledged in writing that she received death threats because people believed she was responsible for Cat’s death.
‘This latest attempt to create a diversion by the attorney from his meritless claims just shows how low he will stoop.’
