Liar Liar IRL? Jim Carrey Accused Of Lying About Paying Late Girlfriend's Funeral Costs — Get The Latest On The Wrongful Death Case

If these new accusations are allowed to be used in court, Jim Carrey is going to look terrible in front of the jury. And if they're true, he'll deserve it.

As the wrongful death lawsuits over the suicide of Carrey's former girlfriend Cathronia White continue, they're only getting uglier.

Back in December, Carrey's legal team tried to block claims that he publicly offered to pay White's funeral costs — but then totally reneged!

Well, now White's mother, Brigid Sweetman, and ex-husband, Mark Burton, have filed an amended complaint they hope will be seen by a jury. According to DailyMail.com, the new docs say the Liar Liar star just wanted to appear as the "grieving good guy" but privately withdrew his offer and "never paid a dime of funeral expenses."

These charges, in addition to accusations that Carrey gave White herpes, chlamydia, and hepatitis A, have been called "irrelevant" to the wrongful death case by his high-priced lawyer, Marty Singer.

It's unclear in what way the complaint was amended to allow it in; we'll have to wait and see if the judge agrees with Singer and strikes the latest claims.

Jim Carrey

Jim Carrey is remaining positive despite some not-so-good news today.

As we've reported, the 54-year-old has been slapped with two wrongful death lawsuits over the suicide of his former girlfriend Cathronia White.

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.

Ice Cube & Dr. Dre Dismissed From Wrongful Death Lawsuit In Suge Knight's Fatal Hit-And-Run

no title

Ice Cube and Dr. Dre are officially off the hook for Terry Carter's tragic death, according to TMZ.

You might recall, the man was sadly killed after being run over by Suge Knight, who had just gotten into a fight with two crew members from the Straight Outta Compton set.

After the devastating loss, Terry's family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Suge, but also named Ice Cube and Dre as defendants, arguing that they hired gang members to keep the now-jailed Death Row Records co-founder away from the movie's set.

They believe Knight's getting turned away is what caused the Compton native to get so angry that he fatally backed over his friend.

However, a judge recently dismissed the Ride Along 2 star and the Beats Electronics CEO from the suit, saying it didn't make any sense to blame them for Suge's actions.

The lawsuit still stands against the former Death Row Records exec, who also has a murder trial pending for the hit-and-run.

Paul Walker's Daughter Suing Porsche Over Her Father's Death

Filed under: Legal MattersR.I.P.FamilyCeleb KidzPaul Walker

Meadow claims the car company knew the model that crashed wasn't as safe as it should have been.

Paul Walker's daughter Meadow has filed a lawsuit against Porsche for the wrongful death of her father.

The late actor was riding in a Porsche Carrera GT in the car crash that resulted in his untimely passing. According to the papers filed by the 16-year-old's lawyers, the Furious 7 star had survived the impact, but the seatbelt had "snapped Walker's torso back with thousands of pounds of force, thereby breaking his ribs and pelvis" so he couldn't get out of the vehicle.

The documents said that when the car caught fire almost a minute and a half later, Paul "breathed soot into his trachea while the Porsche Carrera GT burned."

While authorities had said the accident was caused because the car's driver, Roger Rodas, was speeding over 80 miles per hour, the suit says he wasn't going faster than 71 MPH.

Meadow's lawyers also claimed the car wouldn't have lost control if it had a better stabilization system.

The papers say the Carrera GT model had "a history of instability and control issues," and the manufacturers were fully aware of that.

The teen's lawyers argue that Porsche should have included its Stability Management System in the vehicle — which is found in a variety of its cars — because it would have stopped the swerving.

But they believe the company left them out of the design on purpose.

The lawsuit also targeted other parts, pointing out that they allowed the car to catch fire. Meadow's team has spoken out, saying Porsche knew the GT wasn't safe enough to be on the road.

Let the legal maneuvering begin — er, continue.

Bobbi Kristina Brown has passed away, of course, yet there's still much to be done around her former boyfriend Nick Gordon – and we're getting a hint of what may be coming down the line for him.

On Tuesday, Gordon's lawyers filed a motion to dismiss the wrongful death lawsuit that has been brought against him for BK's untimely end. Bedelia Hargrove, the co-conservator of Brown's estate, has alleged in the lawsuit that Gordon was responsible for putting Brown in a coma on the night of January 31 at the home they shared in Atlanta.

Gordon's lawyers, however, contend that Hargrove's lawsuit contains:
