Cathriona White’s Estranged Husband Claims Jim Carrey Gave Her STDs, Triggering Her Suicide
Jim Carrey reportedly gave his late ex-girlfriend three different STDs before breaking up with her.
Mark Burton, Cathriona White’s estranged husband, revised his wrongful death lawsuit against The Mask star on Thursday (Sept. 22, 2016). Following his first lawsuit, which accuses Carrey of providing the prescription drugs his wife used to overdose in September 2015, Burton now claims that Carrey gave White Herpes Type I, Herpes Type 2, and Gonorrhea, which ultimately triggered her suicide.
His lawsuit includes alleged texts about the diseases, but the actor’s reps say Burton is just shamelessly trying to profit off White’s death. “This is a desperate, bogus claim made by the ‘husband’ of the sham marriage,” Carrey’s attorney Martin Singer told TMZ.
His lawyer went on to add that the STD claim doesn’t make sense due to the fact White reached out to Carrey “begging him to continue the relationship.”
Burton has since responded with his own statement. “Mr. Carrey and his handlers need to stop with the lies and deception — enough is enough. Do they really expect people to ignore the text messages and the handwritten letter in Cat’s own words?” he wrote.
Stay tuned. This could get really ugly.
