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, PEOPLE confirms.

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 obtained by PEOPLE.

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.
