JIM CAR­REY’S late girl­friend was “pres­sured” by her es­tranged hus­band and lawyer to falsely ac­cuse the ac­tor of giv­ing her her­pes in 2013 shortly af­ter a botched wax job left her “bumps,” a law­suit filed Fri­day claims.

The com­plaint, filed by Car­rey, says the men took ad­van­tage of Cathri­ona White’s anger over her Jan­uary 2013 breakup with him and urged her to seek “mil­lions of dol­lars” with her fab­ri­cated al­le­ga­tion.

Filed by Car­rey as a coun­ter­suit to the wrong­ful-death claims al­ready pend­ing against him, the suit says White ac­tu­ally had her­pes be­fore they started dat­ing in Septem­ber 2012.

It al­leges White, who com­mit­ted suicide in 2015, got the bad wax job around Jan. 20, 2013, and sent a pic­ture to hus­band Mark Bur­ton.Car­rey said he had no choice but to file his coun­ter­suit af­ter Bur­ton and White’s es­tranged mother, Brigid Sweet­man, launched new le­gal claims say­ing he caused White’s suicide in Septem­ber 2015.

“I will not give in a sec­ond time to these same fraud­u­lent charges ini­ti­ated by Cat’s hus­band in name but not sub­stance, Mark Bur­ton, and her es­tranged mother,” Car­rey said.
