Los Angeles: The husband of Jim Carrey’s former girlfriend has filed a lawsuit against the actor for allegedly supplying prescription drugs that contributed to her fatal drug overdose.
Mark Burton claims Carrey, 54, illegally obtained and then distributed Ambien, Popranolol and Percocet to White, 30.
Bottles of those three pills were found in White’s home with her lifeless body in September last year.
The drugs found were all prescribed to Arthur King, an alias by Carrey.
Burton also claims Carrey texted the beautician and make-up artist after her death to make it seem as though she had stolen the pills in order to save himself from a possible police investigation.
However, Carrey’s lawyer, Marty Singer, has called the lawsuit-filed in the Superior Court of County of Los Angeles – a shameless shakedown nd says his client is blameless.
Burton, 49, also says that, despite Carrey and his assistant having a surveillance camera set up at White’s residence, neither of them checked on the women or alerted authorities despite the fact that she had not left her residence in 24 hours.
After White committed suicide, and in an effort to cover-up his conduct and complicity in her death, Carrey sent a bogus text message on September 27,2015 to White pretending as though he had misplaced the drugs and insinuating that White may have taken them from carrey.
Burton had been living in Oregon at the time of White’s death. He is believed to be a Scientologist.
White had penned a suicide note and addressed it to ‘Jim Carrey’ on the dining room table.
White wrote to the actor;
I have spent 3 days now in disbelief that you are not here. I can go on brokenhearted and try to put the pieces back. I could, I just don’t have the will this time.
‘I am sorry you felt i wasnt there for you. i tried to give you my best part’.
Discussng the details of her funeral, she told the actor matter-of-factly: ‘I dont really know about burial or the sort of thing. You are my family or whatever you choose will be fine’.
she added, asking for forgiveness:
‘Please forgive me. i am just not for this world’.
