Carrey responding late Monday to accusations he contributed to the death of his ex-girlfriend. The husband of Cathriona White had slapped the rubber-faced comedian with a wrongful death suit earlier in the day. Alleging Carrey quote, used his immense wealth and status to illegally supply the prescription drugs that resulted in White's death.
The Dumb and Dumber star saying in a statement issued by his publicist quote, it would be easy for me to get in the 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 honor against the evil in this world.
Plaintiff Mark Burton accuses Carrey of using the fake name Arthur King to obtain Percocet, Ambien and Propranolol, and supply them to White even though he knew she was prone to depression and had previously tried to take her own life. White, an Irish born makeup artist, was found dead of apparent suicide in her Los Angeles apartment in 2015.
She and Carrey reportedly had a spotty two year relationship and had split up a week before her death. Carrey also called the suit quote, a heartless attempt to exploit me. And that quote, Cat's troubles were born long before I met her.
