Jim Carrey’s relationship with his ex-girlfriend Cathriona White was far from perfect. It ended with White “brokenhearted” and dead by her own hand and Carrey facing a wrongful death lawsuit.

Although Jim Carrey has been one of the most successful comedians and actors in Hollywood for decades, his personal life – including his romance with Cathriona White – has been filled with ups and downs.

MEETING CATHRIONA WHITE

Carrey and White, a make-up artist, supposedly met on a film set in 2012. While the details of their relationship are scarce, he hired a lawyer in October 2012 to create a prenuptial agreement to marry her.

However, they parted ways in early January, and she tied the knot with Mark Burton. Carrey’s attorney eventually claimed it was a “green card marriage” as she didn’t want to get deported to Ireland.

White and Carrey reconciled and celebrated Valentine’s Day 2013 together, but they broke up shortly after. Things got more complicated later that year when White allegedly was pressured by Burton and her lawyer to falsely accuse Carrey of giving her STDs. More on this later.

Around the same time, she wrote a note for Carrey and revealed she was promised Jekyll but got Hyde instead, which resulted in her being "broken down." She added:

“Before you, I might not have had very much, but I had respect. I was a happy person. I loved life, I was confident, and I felt good in my skin.”

White also wrote that Carrey introduced her to drugs, mental abuse, and diseases and threw her away after he “absorbed” what was worthwhile about her. It is unclear if White ever sent Carrey the note.

WHITE’S PASSING

Even after all the negative things White wrote about Carrey, they started talking again in late 2014 and got back together in May 2015. Unfortunately, their romance was short-lived.

On September 28, 2015, White died by suicide and left a note for Carrey. In it, she confessed she thought they had chosen each other and would be okay again, but that wasn’t the case.

Instead of taking things to court at the time, Carrey succumbed to the extortion.

White requested her belongings to be sold and the money given to her family. Before telling Carrey that she loved him and asking for his forgiveness, she wrote:

“I can go on brokenhearted and try to put the pieces back I could, I just don't have the will this time. I'm sorry you felt I wasn't there for you” [sic].

THE OUTCOME

Following White’s death, her family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Carrey, claiming he gave her STDs and the pills she took to die.

It is essential to point out that White and her attorney extorted Carrey in 2013 as they threatened to go public with the STDs allegations. Instead of taking things to court at the time, Carrey succumbed to extortion.

Due to the lawsuit, Carrey had to defend himself this time. His legal team revealed the STDs claims were false as the “bumps” and “irritation” she got resulted from a wax job.

White supposedly admitted it herself by initially texting Carrey that she was worried about them but, after going to the doctor, she realized she was “clean.”

About the pills accusations, Carrey said she received some of them after a breast-augmentation corrective surgery and also stole some of his pills from his home.

In February 2018, the case was dismissed. Carrey once admitted that he hoped people would stop trying to make money from White’s passing and just let her rest in peace.
