Jim Carrey Cleared Of Wrongful Death Of Irish Ex-Girlfriend

Jim Carrey has been cleared of wrongful death of his ex-girlfriend Cathriona White from Tipperary.

A wrongful death suit was filed in 2016 by Cathriona's estranged husband Mark Burton and her mother Brigid Sweetnam claiming the actor had contributed to White's suicide after giving her multiple STDs.

However the case has now been thrown out after it was discovered that documents that showed Cathriona had clean test results before she met Carrey were forged.

The news of the forgery comes after Carrey countersued White's mother and husband claiming that his ex-girlfriend was attempting to extort him.

A spokesperson for Jim Carrey said the actor wouldn't comment beyond saying he is looking forward to moving on with his life.
