Jim Carrey Sued Over Ex's Suicide

September 20, 2016
Yes, you read that right. Apparently at the time of her death, 30-year-old Cathorina White was dating actor Jim Carrey but she was also married. And now her husband is suing.

Husband Mark Burton accuses Carrey of illegally obtaining the prescription drugs that killed Cathorina, and accuses Carrey of obtaining the drugs under the fake name Arthur King. He also accuses the actor of giving them to her despite being aware that she suffered from depression and was "ill equipped to ingest and manage highly addictive prescription drugs." This all according to his lawsuit filed on Monday in LA.

Friends say Cathorina was living apart from her husband and left a suicide note addressed to Carrey.

In a statement Jim Carrey said it would be easy for him to make the lawsuit go away, but there are times "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. Cat's troubles were born long before I met her and sadly her tragic end was beyond anyone's control," he said.
