But as they continued to talk about getting married, Carrey began to feel that, “despite his strong feelings” towards her, the circumstances of their engagement “felt fraudulent.” In late October, Carrey talked to White, letting her know that he’d had a change of heart about the marriage.
Jim Carrey is ready to tell his side of the story in what has become a nasty legal battle surrounding his ex-girlfriend Cathriona White’s suicide.The actor is currently being sued for wrongful death by White’s estranged husband, Mark Burton, and her mother, Brigid Sweetman.“She was afraid that she would be contacted by INS and deported,” the countersuit explains.Marriage and Cat’s First Suicide Note But Carrey “had fallen” for her, and in October of 2012, he hired a lawyer to begin drafting a prenuptial agreement, while White consulted her own attorney.“At one point, she even staged a phony wedding and posted pictures of it on Facebook,” the countersuit claims, adding that, “On another, she was set to marry a man she was seeing until she learned he was already married.” Furthermore, White and Burton “had never dated, had never lived together and they never intended to live as husband and wife.” The documents even claim that Burton was “hooking up” with one of White’s friends at the time of their marriage.
The First Alleged Extortion Attempt When White returned to Los Angeles, Carrey continued setting up meetings for her with an immigration attorney.
For instance, the Ireland-native was allegedly living in the country illegally, had no permanent residence, no source of income, no car and no healthcare.
When White’s father died not long after they started dating, Carrey agreed to let her stay at his home in Malibu while she grieved.
That Christmas, he even bought the gifts she sent to her family in Ireland.
It was around this time that Carrey first asked White to sign a confidentiality and non-disclosure agreement, which he felt would “protect him from disclosure of private information and personal, sometimes intimate, photographs and messages.” He also offered to continue supporting her financially for a year, regardless of their dating status.
In fact, Carrey claims in the documents that he had succumbed to their attempts in the past.
