Jim Carrey claims he was extorted by ex-girlfriend's mother

Jim Carrey claims he was extorted by ex-girlfriend's mother”

The late Irish make-up artist's mother, Brigid, and her ex-husband, Mark Buron, are suing Carrey for wrongful death, claiming that he supplied Cathriona with a mixture of pills that resulted in her fatal overdose.

But the countersuit states that White's suicide was her own doing.

White reached out to Carrey a few days after texting Burton and claimed to be fearful she had a sexually transmitted disease, the filing states.

The couple was back together for much of that February but split up sometime after Valentine's Day, the filing claims.

Jim also added that back when this happened he lived under the impression that Marchino, her lawyer, was exploiting and manipulating White. The wrongful death lawsuit, initially filed in September 2016, alleges that Carrey illegally obtained "highly addictive and, in this case deadly" drugs under the name Arthur King, then gave them to White, subsequently causing her death in September 2015.

Marchino and Burton "encouraged, pressured, and pushed Cat to get millions of dollars from Jim and to take him for all that she could", the filing states.

Avenatti claimed in a statement that the "note, written in Cat's own words, shows the world how Jim Carrey treated her while she was alive and the depths of his destructive behavior".

Carrey has denied the allegations.

His statement is a counter-complaint against Cathriona's attorney Filippo Marchino, his office The X Law Group, as well as Mark and Brigid, in which he alleges that their lawsuit is another extortion attempt against him.

"I will not give in ... to these same fraudulent charges initiated by Cat's husband in name but not substance Mark Burton, and her estranged mother", the statement read.

Carrey continued by saying that he was blinded by the love he felt for her.

However, despite how she has wronged him in the past, the actor feels empathy and forgives her while trying to focus on enjoying his life. "He needs help", Avenatti said.

Actor Jim Carrey is likely to face a trial over the death of his ex-girlfriend, Cathriona White.Carrey at Ms White's funeral.

Now, however, the actor is determined to not succumb to their extortion attempts and wants to make it very clear that these "desperate characters" did nothing but unearth the truth about the woman he 'adored'.

Carrey previously referred to Burton as White's "green card husband".

In a statement from his representatives a year ago, Carrey blasted the STD allegations as "desperate" and "bogus".
