Star says law­suit is ‘heart­less’

7 Days in Dubai - - CELEBRITY FIX -

Shahid Kapoor has named his baby daugh­ter Misha. The 35-year-old ac­tor has kept de­tails sur­round­ing his lit­tle girl closely to his chest since his wife Mira Ra­jput gave birth on Au­gust 26 but has fi­nally re­vealed the tiny tot’s moniker. It’s be­lieved the cou­ple came up with the name after tak­ing the first two let­ters of Mira and the first three let­ters of Shahid to make their daugh­ter’s fore­name. While fans were heav­ily spec­u­lat­ing what the cou­ple had named their lit­tle one, Shahid flew to Am­rit­sar with his wife and fa­ther Pankaj Kapoor to meet a spir­i­tual ad­viser to de­cide on his daugh­ter’s name, ac­cord­ing to the Times of In­dia. The cou­ple mar­ried last year. Jim Car­rey says a wrong­ful death law­suit filed by the es­tranged hus­band of his ex-girl­friend is a heart­less at­tempt to ex­ploit him and he vowed to fight the case.

Mark Bur­ton sued Car­rey in Los Angeles Su­pe­rior Court on Monday, ac­cus­ing the ac­tor of pro­vid­ing the pre­scrip­tion drugs his wife Cathri­ona White used to over­dose in Septem­ber 2015. The wrong­ful death law­suit con­tends Car­rey im­prop­erly ob­tained pre­scrip­tions for Am­bien and the pow­er­ful opi­oid oxy­codone un­der the alias Arthur King.

The suit ac­cuses Car­rey of giv­ing White the med­i­ca­tions days be­fore she was found dead in one of Car­rey’s homes. White and Car­rey dated in 2012 and were pho­tographed to­gether in May 2015.

“What a ter­ri­ble shame,” Car­rey wrote in a state­ment. “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. I re­ally hope that some day soon peo­ple will stop try­ing to profit from this and let her rest in peace.” Coro­ner’s of­fi­cials ruled the 30year-old make-up artist’s death was sui­cide. Bur­ton and White mar­ried in 2013. A coro­ner’s of­fi­cial told re­porters that the pair were sep­a­rated and planned to divorce, how­ever Bur­ton’s lawyer Michael Ave­natti de­clined to char­ac­terise their re­la­tion­ship be­yond say­ing they were legally mar­ried at the time of White’s death. Car­rey’s lawyer, Marty Singer, wrote in a state­ment that White and Bur­ton never lived to­gether. The law­suit ac­cuses Car­rey of vi­o­lat­ing a sec­tion of Cal­i­for­nia’s Health and Safety Code against the use of aliases to ob­tain pre­scrip­tion med­i­ca­tions.
