Jim Carrey is not going down without a fight!
As we previously reported, the comedian has been slapped with two wrongful death lawsuits over the suicide of his former girlfriend Cathronia White. Both Miz White's mother Brigid Sweetman and estranged husband Mark Burton have accused The Mask star of giving Cathronia sexually transmitted diseases and providing the drugs she used to end her life.
While Sweetman has submitted the A-lister's alleged STD test as evidence, the 54-year-old defended in court documents that these claims are "irrelevant" to the case since White herself had accused Jim of giving her a sexually transmitted disease two years BEFORE her suicide. Carrey also asked the judge to strike any mention of his alleged STDs from court records, as well as accusations he reneged on paying for funeral costs and that he owned a private jet.
In fact, the funny man accuses Brigid of making these claims in order to force his hand and settle out of embarrassment!
The December 19 filing obtained by DailyMail stated:
Jim Carrey is remaining positive despite some not-so-good news today.
Both Cat's estranged husband Mark Burton and mother Brigid Sweetman have accused The Mask actor of giving Cathronia sexually transmitted diseases and providing the drugs Cat used to end her life.
In a recent development on Thursday, Sweetman has submitted evidence to the court that reportedly proves the actor knew and intentionally lied about having STDs — namely, Hepatitis A, Herpes I and II, and Chlamydia.
Sweetman said in a statement:
As you may have heard, Mark Burton, the estranged husband of Jim Carrey's late girlfriend Cathriona White, amended his lawsuit against the comedic actor claiming Jim gave White STDs — and now the actor's lawyer is firing back!
Over a year ago, the 30-year-old committed suicide by overdosing on Ambien, Propranolol, and Percocet. Unfortunately for Carrey, White's estranged hubby made some changes to his lawsuit on Thursday to include info suggesting there were texts proving Carrey gave his gf Herpes Type I, Herpes Type 2, and Gonorrhea.
While the Truman Show star initially put the original lawsuit on blast, his attorney Martin Singer has since SLAMMED the STD allegations. In a new statement, Singer noted:
Whoa! We were not expecting to hear this!
On Thursday, Burton amended his lawsuit, and his new allegation against the Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind star is shocking!
According to legal docs, Cat had a text conversation with Jim in 2013 where she said she contracted an STD from him. After getting tested, she had Herpes Type I, Herpes Type 2 and Gonorrhea. Mark says Jim told her to tell no one.
Before she committed suicide in September 2015, White reportedly wrote a letter to the thespian calling herself "damaged goods", and said the diseases made it impossible for her to find another partner after their breakup.
As of this writing, Carrey and his counsel have yet to comment.
As we wrote, the actor denied any wrongdoing in White's suicide, and believes Burton is simply trying to take his money.
We just hope the truth will come out!

Will Pamela Anderson's Hepatitis C be cured next month?!
Well, she certainly thinks so.
On Thursday, the Baywatch alum sat down with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live! and talked about her hopes with a new drug regime that might end her bout with the disease. Whoa!
In case you forgot, the blonde beauty first contracted the infection back in 2002 and has since been trying different courses of medicine to deal with it. However, after other treatments failed, Kid Rock's ex revealed that she decided to pursue this new drug opportunity.
Just when we thought the whole Johnny Weir and Victor Voronov saga was over…
It seems like these two can't stay out of each others hair/the media.
The two are in the middle of an ugly divorce once again, and Victor has filed court documents that accuse Weir of lying during an interview with Access Hollywood.
In the interview, Weir said:
However, the basketballer's lawyers are saying there's no way he's the one responsible for her STD, and that she's gotten down and dirty with too many other guys to prove it was him!
According to legal documents, Kayla admitted in a recent deposition that she's
