EXCLUSIVE: Cat White's marriage to man suing Jim Carrey was a sham to beat immigration, and was not her first fake wedding - 2016-09-20
(Burton, White, and Carrey)
A man named Mark Burton filed a wrongful death lawsuit yesterday in Los Angeles against comedian Jim Carrey, claiming that the actor should be held liable in last year's apparent suicide of a 30-year-old woman from Ireland named Cathriona White.
Cat White was Jim Carrey's on-again-off-again Scientologist girlfriend, and a suicide note she left behind suggested that she killed herself because she was distraught over Carrey breaking up with her. But she was also married to Burton, who is accusing Carrey of illegally obtaining prescription medicines under a fake name in order to supply them to Cat, who used them to end her life. Carrey has maintained that the medicines were stolen from him, and he didn't notice they were missing until it was too late. He expressed great distress at her death, and attended her funeral in Ireland. But Burton claims in his lawsuit that Carrey reneged on an agreement to help pay for the funeral's costs. Burton's attorney, Michael Avenatti, used Twitter yesterday to claim that Carrey's involvement in his former girlfriend's death is so suspicious, it warrants a criminal investigation by the Los Angeles County District Attorney.
