Jim Carrey's former late girlfriend's husband has filed a death lawsuit on him, addressing which the actor released a powerful statement

Jim Carrey has decided not to keep mum about the filthy situation that his late ex-girlfriend, Cathriona White’s husband, Mark Burton, has dragged him into. Burton has filed a death lawsuit against comedian and actor Jim Carrey, claiming that Jim obtained prescription drugs for his former girlfriend, illegally. Carrey went all out and has given a moving statement, addressing the “the evil in this world”.

In his statement, the actor said: “What a terrible shame. It would be easy for me to get in a back room with this man’s lawyer and make this go away, but there are some moments in life when you have to stand up and defend your honour 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. I really hope that some day soon, people will stop trying to profit from this and let her rest in peace.”

According to the lawsuit filed by Burton, Cathriona regularly received prescription drugs  from Jim, who use to buy them using the name Arthur King. However, before this lawsuit, it had long been established that White had committed suicide.

According to the documents issued by the court, Burton has requested that Jim be sued for violation of the drug dealer liability act and wrongful death. Burton feels that Jim provided Cathriona with drugs “despite the fact that he knew full well that Ms. White was ill equipped to ingest and manage highly addictive prescription drugs outside the care of a licensed physician; was prone to depression; and had previously attempted to take her own life”

Only after a through investigation by the district attorney will it be confirmed if Jim will be charged with the misconducts he has been accused of.
