Star says lawsuit is ‘heartless’
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.
