For the past couple of years, Jim Carrey has been fighting a painful and controversial legal battle. His on-off girlfriend, 30-year-old Cathriona White, died from a drug overdose in September 2015. A year later, her family and estranged husband sued Carrey for wrongful death. Many revelations have already come to light in court; now Carrey has made a new and shocking claim.
Carrey and White had a complicated relationship. Since 2012, they had been dating, but when they split up in 2013 White’s health reportedly suffered. They parted, allegedly, because White had accused Carrey of giving her sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), a claim he denied. They got back together in 2014.
But the relationship ended in a terrible way. In 2015, Carrey broke up with her again. A few days later, on September 28, White was found dead in her home. She had overdosed on prescription drugs, and a suicide note was found. “I’ve spent three days now in disbelief that you’re not here… Please forgive me. I’m just not for this world,” it read.
