30-year-old Cathriona White died by suicide at her home in Los Angeles in September last year, and her ex-partner Jim Carrey has been in the middle of ongoing legal battles ever since.
In recent weeks, details have emerged that Carrey reportedly gave White multiple STI’s during their sexual relationship, and was extremely dismissive and shaming towards his partner after she confronted him about it via text message.
White’s estranged husband has already filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Carrey citing this as a reason for her passing, and now her mother Brigid Sweetman has done the same.
“Jim Carrey should be ashamed of what he did to my daughter.And he should be ashamed for how he has used his Hollywood attorneys to badmouth Cat’s husband Mark with the hope that nobody will hold him responsible for what he did.As a family, we want the world to know the truth about who Jim Carrey really is – a man that will give your daughter three STDs, lie about it, call her terrible names and demean her, use his high priced lawyers to try and shut her and her family up, and then give her illegal drugs.Every mother and father that has a daughter should read Cat’s handwritten letter to Jim and decide for themselves what kind of guy he really is.”
She states that Carrey‘s denial of testing positive to STI’s was false, and that he had taken tests using a false name of ‘Jose Lopez’.
“At the time of her death, White had been engaged in an on again, off again sexual relationship with Carrey.This relationship was punctuated by White learning in early 2013 from a doctor that Carrey had given White three sexually transmitted diseases – Herpes Type 1, Herpes Type 2 and Chlamydia.To make matters worse, after Ms. White confronted Carrey about his egregious conduct, he manipulated her, shamed her, exploited her, threatened her and used his handlers and attorneys to silence her.This was “pure evil,” “heartless,” “despicable,” “abhorrent,” and “outrageous.”This ultimately was a significant cause of Ms. White ending her life.”
However, the actor’s lawyer Marty Singer claims that White was estranged from her mother for years before her death, and that the lawsuit is heading down “same dark path” as her ex-husband’s.
