Jim Carrey was sued Monday violations of death and illicit drugs, accused the husband of her late obtain and give powerful painkillers he used to kill herself in September 2015 illegally girlfriend.
The lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles by Mark Burton, a man from Oregon who was married to white Cathriona, 30 at the time of his death, when she had been in a relationship with Carrey. Burton demand Carrey tries to remove his image “duel good guy” and portrayed as reckless and misleading before and after the death of Blanca.
The makeup artist of Irish origin was found dead in a Sherman Oaks, California, home on September 28, 2015 .; the coroner’s office in Los Angeles County ruled whitest later took his own life with an overdose of prescription drugs, including Ambien, propranolol and Percocet (oxycodone).
“After obtaining these drugs illegally and under a false name (” King Arthur “), Carrey proceeded to provide prescription drugs to … Cathriona white”, despite knowing that White was “prone to depression and had previously tried to take his own life, “the lawsuit states. “The result followed was predictable and foreseeable”.
Then demand Burton says, Carrey tried to “hide and conceal their involvement and culpability in the premature and tragic death of Mrs. White”.
The lawsuit does not specify the amount of money Burton is looking for, but it does require a jury trial.
Carrey said on Monday. “What a terrible shame. It would be easy for me to get in a quarter turn with the lawyer of this man and make this go away, but there are some times when you have to stand up and defend your honor against the evil in this world “the actor said in a statement e-mailed to US TODAY by her publicist.
Carrey’s statement continued: “I will not tolerate this attempt heartless to me or the woman he loved explode.
Cat problems were born long before he met and unfortunately his tragic end was beyond anyone’s control. I really hope that someday soon people will stop trying to take advantage of this and let her rest in peace. ”
Among the allegations in the lawsuit:
Carrey had surveillance cameras in the home where Blanca stayed and was able to remotely keep track of their comings and goings.
Before it was discovered, Carrey assistant checked the camera and realized whites had not moved from the house for more than 24 hours. “After learning this, nor his assistant Carrey and alerted authorities,” according to the lawsuit.
The drugs found in the body of black all from three pill bottles found near his body and bearing the name of “King Arthur.” The lawsuit says Carrey got the drugs from a doctor who conspired with Carrey illegally prescribe them to him under the false name of King Arthur.
“Carrey unjustly and illegally obtained these drugs in violation of California law,” the lawsuit said.
Demand for Burton says Carrey sent a fake text message to White on September 27, when she was already dead, pretending he had lost drugs and “white insinuating may have taken them Carrey without their knowledge, when in fact Carrey knew very well that he had provided voluntarily drugs and illegally obtained fraudulently and whites prescribed days before “the lawsuit says.
Carrey’s offer to pay the funeral of White in Ireland was no more than an effort to paint him as a “good dueling” as opposed to someone intimately involved in his death, according to the lawsuit.
But the suit says Carrey Burton never paid anything funeral expenses. “Instead, Carrey did not fulfill his promise after learning that White had left a minimum amount of money for his family,” the lawsuit said. “It is not surprising that he never informed the media of his broken and family tough decision promise.”
