Earlier this week, Cathriona White’s estranged husband (and possible current Scientologist) Mark Burton came forward to file a wrongful death lawsuit against Jim Carrey. In it, he alleged that Jim supplied three of the four prescription medications Cathriona used to commit suicide almost a year ago. Mark also accused Jim of monitoring Cathriona’s every move with remote surveillance cameras. Jim denied Mark’s accusations of evildoing, and claimed he was only suing to get some money. Mark is back again with more accusations against Jim. The New York Daily News says that Mark filed a revision to the lawsuit he filed earlier in the week stating that on top of giving her three bottles of pills, Jim also gave her three different STDs.
About a year ago, Jim Carrey’s 30-year-old Irish makeup artist girlfriend Cathriona White committed suicide in her home in Sherman Oaks, CA. She and Jim Carrey had been on-and-off for 3 years and he had reportedly broken up with her just a few days before she died. She left suicide notes including one to Jim Carrey. A few weeks after she overdosed on prescription drugs, it was reported that next to her were 4 pill bottles. The name on 3 of the bottles was allegedly the alias that Jim used for prescriptions. (It’s illegal in CA, but apparently famous tricks do that a lot for privacy reasons.) The other bottle had a different name on it. Well, since Jim Carrey is famous and has bank accounts overfilled with money, he’s been sued by Cathriona’s estranged husband for wrongful death.
This is just all kinds of fucking terrible and there’s really no other way to say it. Cathriona White, who dated Jim Carrey on-and-off since 2012, was found dead at a home in Los Angeles last night. Police believe she intentionally overdosed on pills. She was only 28.
TMZ says that two of Cathriona’s friends went to check on her last night and they found her body. There were pills next to her. She also left a suicide note where she wrote about how she broke up with Jim Carrey on September 24th. 53-year-old Jim and Cathriona started dating in 2012 and they dated a few months before breaking up. They decided to give it another go in May.
Cathriona tweeted this a few days ago:
Signing off Twitter, I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest. ✌🏼️❤️ to yo all

UPDATE – Jim told Entertainment Tonight that he’s “deeply saddened” about the death of his ex-girlfriend and he also said this:
“She was a truly kind and delicate Irish flower, too sensitive for this soil, to whom loving and being loved was all that sparkled. My heart goes out to her family and friends and to everyone who loved and cared about her. We have all been hit with a lightning bolt.”
For those of you thinking “When did that backwards-talking tweaker who sat beside me on the bus that one time and smelled like tinfoil and Skittles become friends with David Letterman?“, I’m afraid that’s not your friendly neighborhood tweaker, but Jim Carrey. But even if it was the random dude who once tried to sell you something called ‘Special J’ (peroxide, Pixy Stix, and lice shampoo), just remember – it’s still better than who showed up for Jay Leno’s last episode.
So last night was David Letterman’s final episode of Late Night with David Letterman, and everyone came out to say goodbye. Three former and one current President of the United States opened the show, the Foo Fighters showed up and played “Everlong”, and the last Top Ten list was read by 10 of his most famous friends. We already knew Bill Murray was going to be there, thanks to the city-wide booze shortage he caused on Tuesday night, but he was joined by Jim Carrey (who looks like he drank whatever Bill threw up), Alec Baldwin, Tina Fey, Jerry Seinfeld, and Peyton Manning? Sure, why not!
Also, big shout outs to Barbara Walters, who kept it together, even though it was obvious she had been sampling whatever liquid was left in the Will It Float tank. Speaking of Will It Float, where the hell was Grinder Girl?!? How could David gather all his nearest and dearest and forget the Late Show’s glamorous Russian crotch-grinding goddess? Maybe it was a health and safety thing; there’s always a chance Alec Baldwin might fall into a rage hole, and the last thing CBS would want is for him to grab a dangerous power tool on the way down.
Here are all Dave’s famous friends arriving at the final Late Show with David Letterman. Bye Dave! I’ll miss you and Paul Shaffer, but I’ll especially miss hearing that sex-voiced panty-dampening ginger announcer Alan Kalter (what? Don’t judge me).
Besides Drew Barrymore and Debi Mazar who were extremely hot as Sugar and Spice, Batman Forever was a neon turd and apparently it was a huge, messy shit show behind-the-scenes too. Ever since that mess came out, there’s been rumors that there was a lot of fighting going on during filming and that Jim Carrey and Tommy Lee Jones got along as well as two Rockaway black bears. Jim Carrey was on Howard Stern (via UsWeekly) yesterday to promote Dumb and Dumber To and the rumors about him scrappin’ with TLJ on the set of Batman Forever came up. Jim Carrey said that yeah, the rumors are true, and then he told a story that should make all of us wish we will get into a fight with TLJ just once. Because he will spew out some poetic hate that will make your soul blossom.
One month before the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, Jim Carrey picked up a gun and collected a check to play Colonel Stars and Stripes in the sequel to Kick-Ass. Then when the Sandy Hook shooting happened, Jim had a sort of anti-gun epiphany and spoke out several times about how he feels this country needs tighter gun control. With Kick-Ass 2 coming out in August, now is the time for everyone involved to start pimping that shit out, but Jim said on Twitter this past weekend that he can’t sell a movie with that much violence in it.
I did Kickass a month b4 Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence. My apologies to e

I meant to say my apologies to others involve with the film. I am not ashamed of it but recent events have caused a change in my heart.

Kick-Ass 2’s director Mark Millar responded on his website and said that he’s confused in the brains over Jim Carrey wanting nothing to do with his movie, because he says that the script never ever changed and the violence is so over-the-top that it’s satirical. Jim plays a Born-Again Christian who refuses to a fire a gun and Mark says that’s what drew Jim to the character in the first place. Mark went on to say that it’s just a damn movie and he hopes Jim changes his mind. Here’s a piece of what Mark wrote:
As you may know, Jim is a passionate advocate of gun-control and I respect both his politics and his opinion, but I’m baffled by this sudden announcement as nothing seen in this picture wasn’t in the screenplay eighteen months ago. Yes, the body-count is very high, but a movie called Kick-Ass 2 really has to do what it says on the tin. A sequel to the picture that gave us HIT-GIRL was always going to have some blood on the floor and this should have been no shock to a guy who enjoyed the first movie so much. My books are very hardcore, but the movies are adapted for a more mainstream audience and if you loved the tone of the first picture you’re going to eat this up with a big, giant spoon. Like Jim, I’m horrified by real-life violence (even though I’m Scottish), but Kick-Ass 2 isn’t a documentary. No actors were harmed in the making of this production! This is fiction and like Tarantino and Peckinpah, Scorcese and Eastwood, John Boorman, Oliver Stone and Chan-Wook Park, Kick-Ass avoids the usual bloodless body-count of most big summer pictures and focuses instead of the CONSEQUENCES of violence, whether it’s the ramifications for friends and family or, as we saw in the first movie, Kick-Ass spending six months in hospital after his first street altercation.
“BUT WHAT ABOUT THE MONEY?!” is the question everybody’s asking. Is Jim going to keep it, is he going to donate it or is he going to stand outside of movie theaters on Kick-Ass 2’s opening day and pay people to not see it? Jim hasn’t said yet. Since I’m filled with equal parts bitterness, cynicalness and bitchiness, part of me thinks this is a STUNT QUEEN move to get people talking about Kick-Ass 2, but if it isn’t, then I can’t really shade on Jim for changing his mind.
You know, one of my friends saw The Incredible Burt Wonderstone at a discount movie theater and said it was so goddamn awful that he wanted to beat the brains out of his head on the armrest. So, since Jim isn’t making movies that he feels could elicit violence, there won’t ever be a sequel to The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. That’s a positive!
