Jim Carrey claims his late girlfriend had STDs before they even met and fabricated medical records in an effort to make him appear responsible
Jim is facing a lawsuit from the family of ex-girlfriend Cathriona White, who accuse the actor of being responsible for her death after Cat died by suicide last October. Carrey claims in court documents that have emerged ahead of the hearing saying she faked medical records in an attempt to extort him for millions of dollars.

White’s mother and estranged husband assert that she started experiencing suicidal thoughts after the actor gave her Herpes I, Herpes II and gonorrhea. However, documents filed in court accuse White of an elaborate plot to extort him for millions “through smears and threats of public degradation via false allegations” and by faking her medical records. White allegedly told Carrey that she would lie and tell people that he gave her the diseases.
But Jim is disputing the allegations, saying his ex changed her friend’s medical records to trick him on her STD results when they began dating. He claims in the documents that have been obtained by People, that she backdated the form from 2013 to 2011.
“White’s intent in obtaining these records was clear — she cooked the records, creating forgeries with altered information, phony tests and fictitious dates,” the papers stated.
White took her own life in September 2015 at the age of 30, and her mother and her estranged husband have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Carrey, 55, that alleges he should be held responsible for the prescription drug overdose that led to her death.
The court documents further allege the existence of text messages between White and the friend whose documents she falsified.
An attorney for White, Michael Avenatti, told TMZ that the new allegation ‘complete and utter bulls***’ and added that Carrey and some of his legal advice will be ‘criminally prosecuted for their conduct in this case’.
The news comes as DailyMail.com revealed yesterday that Carrey is seeking a protective order in the wrongful death lawsuit brought against him.
This action comes weeks after leaked notes from his late girlfriend’s therapist revealed that he allegedly lied about giving her sexual transmitted diseases.
Carrey’s motion, filed on October 9, intends to modify an already existing order, and if approved, will allow the actor and other parties involved to review the discovery material five days before it is disclosed to the public.
The filing comes as it’s been revealed that Carrey will be deposed in the case on October 27.
