Jim Carrey cleared of lawsuits in ex's death

White was an Irish make-up artist who dated Carrey intermittedly between 2012 and 2015. She worked with celebrities such as David Hasselhoff and Lyndie Greenwood.

However, Cathriona suffered from depression, and had threatened suicide before taking her live in 2015. The Irish-born woman was found dead in a Sherman Oaks, Calif., home on September 28, 2015; the Los Angeles County coroner's office later ruled White took her own life by overdosing on prescription drugs, including Ambien, Propranolol and Percocet (oxycodone and acetaminophen).

"Many of the suicide notes she wrote over the years had a common theme, 'I am not for this world,"' the countersuit stated. "Peace and love to you all".

"Run on the top of the dishevelled tide, And dance upon the mountains like a flame".

"Cat chose to end her life", the countersuit stated.

She wrote to the actor that she was anxious that it could be symptoms of an STD.

In September 2015, White (30) was found dead in Carrey's home.

Michael Avenatti, the attorney for Sweetman and Burton, did not immediately respond to a request for comment from USA TODAY. At the time, they claimed Carrey was responsible for providing the drugs that led to the former makeup artist's death.

Cathriona's mother has since supported the claim.

Jim Carrey Has Been Cleared.

He said he felt Ms White was being exploited by her lawyer when she made the claims.

Did Jim Carrey stand trial?

The 55 year old Hollywood star counter-sued and claimed that White was trying to blackmail him during her life.

Her mother also claimed that Carrey, 56, gave her three sexually-transmitted diseases. Carrey's legal team proved that White herself had the STD results forged in order to blackmail the actor.

In October a year ago, Carrey filed a countersuit against his accusers, insisting they were trying to extort him.

After Ms White's death, it was revealed that she had been married to Mr Burton since 2013.

Sweetman also said he passed on STDs to Cathriona but pressured her into covering it up.

In October, the star's lawyer Raymond P. Boucher filed a motion alleging a document showing White had clean STD test results before meeting Carrey was a forgery.

However, in September 2017, Carrey chose to file a countersuit against White's family.

A spokesperson for the actor told The Hollywood Reporter: "Jim is looking forward to moving on with his life now".

It read: "We have no further comment at this time".
