Cathriona White’s mother has filed a lawsuit against Jim Carrey, mere days after White’s estranged husband. White’s mother is demanding justice for the abuse her daughter went through while dating Carrey.

#1 She’s from Ireland

#2 She and Carrey Broke up Days before Her Death
According to White’s mother, Carrey had broken up with her hours after the 30-year-old said she had been infected by STDs from him. White’s mother also said that Carrey wanted her to sign documents saying she wouldn’t sue the star comedian for passing STDs, or to reveal that he has STDs. The handwritten note she left behind mentioned her breakup with Carrey.
#3 She Died of a Drug Overdose
White was found dead in her home. The coroner said she overdosed on drugs revealed to be a mixture of Ambien, Propranolol and Percocet. White’s mother alleged that Carrey was the one who gave her the drugs, knowing her past history with depression and suicide attempts. She also claims that Carrey sent her a text to cover up his tracks, saying that the mentioned medicines are missing from his home.
