*Husband of Jim Carrey’s Girlfriend Sues for Wrongful Death After Her Suicide:
The estranged husband of Jim Carrey’s late girlfriend, Cathriona White, is suing the actor, claiming that he is responsible for White’s fatal overdose last year. Mark Burton filed a wrongful death suit against Carrey in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Monday, alleging that the 54-year-old actor used his “immense wealth and celebrity status” to illegally obtain the drugs that killed 30-year-old White, according to court documents. Burton, who was married to White at the time of her death, alleges that Carrey obtained the drugs illegally under the false name “Arthur King” and gave them to White even though he knew the she was prone to depression and suicide. He also alleges Carrey attempted to cover up his involvement after her death. Burton’s lawyer Michael Avenatti said he and Burton are asking for the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office to launch an investigation into White’s death. “We look forward to the facts and evidence relating to Mr. Carrey’s conduct and role in the death of Ms. White coming to light,” Avenatti said. The filing notes that a coroner determined that White had overdosed on Ambien, Propranolol and Percocet – none of which had been prescribed to the 30-year-old.
