JIM CAR­REY SUED OVER DEATH OF GIRL­FRIEND

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

LOS ANGELES: The hus­band of Jim Car­rey’s for­mer girl­friend sued the ac­tor on Mon­day, ac­cus­ing him of il­le­gally sup­ply­ing Cathri­ona White with pre­scrip­tion drugs that re­sulted in her death. The law­suit filed by White’s hus­band, Mark Bur­ton, ac­cused Car­rey, 54, of “us­ing his im­mense wealth and celebrity sta­tus to il­le­gally ob­tain and dis­trib­ute highly ad­dic­tive and, in this case deadly, con­trolled sub­stances”. White, 30, an Ir­ish-born makeup artist, was found dead in her Los Angeles apart­ment in Septem­ber 2015, in an ap­par­ent sui­cide. In a state­ment, Carey said: “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.”– Reuters
