Court documents prove Carrey has been sued for allegedly obtaining drugs under a false name for Cathriona White, who died of an overdose last year.

Mark Burton, White’s estranged husband, lodged a complaint claiming the 54-year-old star used his “immense wealth and celebrity status” to illegally obtain and distribute prescription drugs involved in her death.

In papers filed with Los Angeles superior court, Burton said "The Mask" star provided the drugs for White despite knowing she was ill-equipped to take them, prone to depression and had previously tried to take her own life.

 

His complaint states: “After her death, Mr Carrey took steps to conceal and obfuscate his involvement and culpability in Ms White’s untimely and tragic death.”

In response, Carrey described the lawsuit as a heartless attempt to exploit him and the woman he loved.

Recall that White was found dead at her Los Angeles home back in September 2015 after overdosing on prescription drugs.

She left a suicide note addressed to the actor saying she was just not for this world.
