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.
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.
