In response to a wrongful death case filed against actor Jim Carrey, his legal team is now claiming late girlfriend Cathriona White had sexually transmitted diseases before she met Carrey and faked medical records in an attempt to extort millions of dollars from him, according to court documents filed on Friday.
White killed herself in September 2015 by overdosing on prescription drugs. White’s mother, Brigid Sweetman, and her estranged husband, Mark Burton, filed the wrongful death lawsuit against the actor, claiming he used his “wealth, influence and celebrity status” to supply her with the drugs that killed her.
Carrey went on to say that White used an elaborate scheme to trick him regarding her STD results when they began dating. He also claimed that White’s mother and her previous attorney, Filippo Marchino, were conspiring in 2013 to extort the 55-year-old actor through “smears and threats of public degradation via false allegations.”
Carrey’s attorneys charge that White used a legitimate and official copy of her friend’s Planned Parenthood records in an effort to make it look like they were her own and then told Carrey that she had tested negative for sexually transmitted diseases just prior to her relationship with him.
Sweetman and Burton wrote in a statement that Carry’s new court filing was a “desperate attempt to save himself.”
“Carrey has now resorted to outright falsehoods. Let’s see if his story holds up once he is under oath. It won’t,” the statement said.
