In just less than a month since Jim Carrey’s ex-girlfriend Cathriona White’s estranged husband sued the Hollywood actor for her ‘wrongful’ death, White’s mother too has filed a similar lawsuit.
Brigid Sweetman’s statement was recorded less than a month after Cathriona White’s husband, Mark Burton filed a similar lawsuit previously. The actor has denied all the accusations, claiming those as wrongful.
In September 2015, Irish make-up artist White, 30, died in Los Angeles. A medical examiner revealed that she took her own life after consuming several prescription drugs. It has been a hard time after White died for Jim, as he fights back the accusations for abusing his ex-girlfriend over messages.
“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,” Ms Sweetman said to the local media in a statement.
“As a family, we want the world to know the truth about who Jim Carrey really is.”
She said about Jim, “A man who gave my 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.”
Referring to the note left by White, where she describes being called a “whore” and “an opportunist”, her grieving mothers adds, “Every mother and father who have a daughter should read Cat’s handwritten letter to Jim and decide for themselves what kind of guy he really is.”
In papers that are filed at Los Angeles Superior Court, in January 2013, she claims that Jim knew he was tested positive for the STDs after his visit to the medical clinic. He registered himself under the false name “Jose Lopez”.
White started getting symptoms and asked Jim, according to the papers. He texted back, “Aggravated folicles (sic) or bumps are normal when you shave or have vigorous sex.”
“I hope your (sic) ok hun,” he said. “It could be from someone before me. Doesn’t show up until you’re really stressed.”
With response to Ms Sweetman’s lawsuit, Jim’s lawyer stated, “It is understandable that a mother who has lost a daughter will look for someone to blame.”
