The buck stops here -- at least as far as going beyond a divorce is concerned.

Jim Carrey is tired of the BS!
As we reported, on Monday, Cathriona White's secret estranged husband Mark Burton filed a lawsuit against the actor accusing him of providing her with deadly prescription meds. Last September, the 30-year-old committed suicide by overdosing on Ambien, Propranolol, and Percocet.
That same day, the Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind star's lawyer — Marty Singer — says his client is in no way, shape, or form responsible for his ex-girlfriend's death.
Singer says Carrey didn't give her a single pill, and that she "stole" his prescriptions.
The 54-year-old comedic legend says he will fight Burton's allegations and will NOT settle the case! He said:
"There are moments in life when you have to stand up and defend your honor against the evil in this world. I will not tolerate this heartless attempt to exploit me or the woman I loved."
"Cat's troubles were born long before I met her and sadly her tragic end was beyond anyone's control. I really hope someday soon people will stop trying to profit from this and let her rest in peace."
Carrey and his counsel insinuate that Burton's lawsuit is a "a money-grab scheme," and that him and Cathriona were only married so she wouldn't be sent back to Ireland.
We just hope the truth will come out!
