Jim Carrey is finally free ! He has been cleared of playing a part in his ex-girlfriend Cathriona White’s suicide after a wrongful death lawsuit was dismissed.
Miss White’s estranged mother and husband had sued Carrey, claiming he gave her sexually-transmitted diseases and provided the drugs she used when she took her own life in September 2015, aged 30.
However, the 56-year-old actor’s lawyer has now proved that Miss White forged medical records showing that she had no STDs before meeting Carrey. Last year the Hollywood star claimed she had blackmailed him over claims he had given her herpes. He said that he paid her an undisclosed sum in 2013.
The actor’s attorney Raymond Boucher found that Miss White, a makeup artist from Ireland, had edited the patient information on the 2011 STD test to make it seem the records were her own.
Miss White, who dated the actor on and off for three years, used a friend’s medical records and changed the name and date on them.
Texts between Miss White and the unnamed friend, seen by TMZ, show that she asked the friend to obtain her medical records from Planned Parenthood. One text sent from Miss White reportedly reads: ‘I need to see the layout… I will need to work on it before I give it to him.’
Last year Carrey claimed that between March and August 2013, Cathriona threatened to ‘go to the press’ with false claims that he had given her STDs unless he paid her ‘millions of dollars.’
