Jim Carrey Speaks Out After Late Girlfriend's Estranged Husband Sues Him

Jim Carrey is speaking out after being sued for his involvement in the death of his ex-girlfriend Cathriona White, who overdosed last year.

The 54-year-old actor is being accused of providing drugs that contributed to Cathriona‘s death by her estranged husband, Mark Burton.

According to TMZ, Jim‘s lawyer says that the prescriptions were stolen and Jim did not provide her with any drugs.

“What a shame. It would be easy for me to get back in a room with this man’s lawyer and make this go away, but there are moments in life when you have to stand up and defend your honor against the evil in this world. I will not tolerate this heartless attempt to exploit me or the woman I loved,” Jim said in a statement.

He continued, “Cat‘s troubles were born long before I met her and sadly her tragic end was beyond anyone’s control. I really hope someday soon people will stop trying to profit from this and let her rest in peace.”

    I’m sure you have been less forgiving of gun owners who fail to secure their weapons and allow someone to hurt themselves or others with it. There is a thin line between being negligent and enabling. You were sleeping with a married woman and your drugs contributed to her death, but the husband is “evil”. A sick man in a sick world.

    Cathriona and her husband had been separated for five months before she and Jim Carey started dating. Also this wasn’t her first suicide attempt.

    Are you implying that Carrey is less evil with those details?

    Suggesting he is not evil at all .

    Don’t judge until you lived it buddy.

    Ask anyone who has had a loved one that committed suicide or attempted suicide or has a drug addiction and suffered depression and suicidal thoughts. You cannot monitor an adult like that 24-7 and the law makes it harder than ever to get a psychiatric commitment.

    Be clogged courts and they are already clogged, if every opportunistic family member tried to sue someone to get some money for wrongful death.

    It is immoral to be with another man’s wife. It is irresponsible at best to allow someone to use your prescriptions. That is if we believe his version of events. Did he ever report the theft to police? When did he realize she was mentally ill? Was it before or after he slept with her? Like I mentioned, if a similar scenario occurred involving someone else and a firearm, he would spit venom. Being hypocritical is not moral. Immorality equals evil and you can keep your excuses.
