In September 2015, Cathriona White, girlfriend of funny man Jim Carrey, died unexpectedly of an apparent suicide — devastating friends, family and the celebrated actor. She was found surrounded by prescription painkillers, a blood-pressure medication and a sleep aid medication. A toxicology report released by the Los Angeles County Coroner's office listed four types of drugs in her system.
One year following the tragedy, Carrey is being sued by White’s estranged husband, Mark Burton, in a wrongful death lawsuit which was filed on Monday. Burton accuses Carrey of having a hand in White’s suicide, by providing her with drugs when he knew she was prone to depression. According to TMZ, three of the medications were found in pill bottles with the name Arthur King, an alias he claims Carrey uses to fill his prescriptions.
