The estranged husband of Jim Carrey’s deceased ex-girlfriend Cathriona White has filed a wrongful death suit against Carrey. The estranged husband, Mark Burton is reportedly suing the actor, and is blaming Carrey for her suicide.
Burton filed a wrongful death case in Los Angeles on Monday, and according to the New York Post, the suit says Carrey had access to illegal drugs due to his “immense wealth and celebrity status.”
According to documents published by RadarOnline, the filing reads, “This is a case about Jim Carrey using his immense wealth and celebrity status to illegally obtain and distribute highly addictive and, in this case, deadly, controlled substances.”
In the documents, Burton claims Carrey gave White prescription drugs even though Carrey knew she was prone to suicide and depression.
Burton married White in a 2013, and White died from a drug overdose on September 24, 2015.
White reportedly left a suicide note for Carrey that said, “I’ve spent 3 days now in disbelief that you’re not here. I can go on brokenhearted and try to put the pieces back. I could, I just don’t have the will this time. I’m sorry you felt I wasn’t there for you. I tried to give you my best part.”
White and Carrey were reportedly dating on-and-off in the months prior to her suicide.
Whether this case has any validity, or whether Burton will win is still unclear.
