The past couple years have been quite tumultuous for The Mask star Jim Carrey. Back in September of 2015, his ex-girlfriend Cathriona White committed suicide.
At the time of her death, White and Carrey were no longer a couple. However, Carrey attended her funeral service in her hometown of Cappawhite in County Tipperary, Ireland, according to Daily Mail.
In October of 2016, White's family filed a lawsuit for wrongful death against Carrey. White's ex-husband Mark Burton and her mother Brigid Sweetman accused Carrey of giving Cathriona the prescription drugs that she used to kill herself.
In the court documents, Cathriona's mother blamed Carrey for giving her sexually transmitted diseases.
Carrey has requested that the judge presiding over the case strike any mention of him having STD's claiming that it is "irrelevant."
According to Jim Carrey, he and Cathriona were a loving couple and he was "absolutely devastated" by her death. White's mother felt differently claiming that the standup comic gave her daughter three STD's during their relationship, and then tried to blame it on someone else.
Marty Singer, Jim Carrey's lawyer, has called the entire lawsuit a "sham," and claimed that Cathriona and her mother had a damaged relationship.
