Jim Carrey’s late girlfriend Cathriona White died by suicide with prescription pills last September 2015, and according to USA Today, Jim is now being sued in her wrongful death.
According to US Weekly, “The lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court by White’s husband,Mark Burton. The spouses were separated, and she was dating The Truman Showactor, 54, on and off at the time she was found dead in her Sherman Oaks, California, home from an overdose of medications that included Ambien, Propranolol and Percocet, according to the toxicology report.”
According to USA Today, “Burton’s lawsuit claims the drugs that contributed to the makeup artist’s overdose came from three pill bottles bearing the name Arthur King, which the lawsuit alleges a doctor illicitly prescribed to Carrey using the actor’s pseudonym. ‘After obtaining these drugs illegally and under a bogus name (‘Arthur King’), Mr. Carrey proceeds to provide the prescription drugs to … Cathriona White,” the documents claim. The suit further alleges that Carrey knew White was “prone to depression and had previously attempted to take her own life. The result that followed was predictable and foreseeable.”
