A note allegedly penned by Jim Carrey’s late ex on her iPad is now being used as evidence in a wrongful death suit filed against the actor by his ex’s mother and her estranged husband, both of whom claim that Carrey’s reckless behavior led her to commit suicide.
“Before you I might not have had very much but I had respect, I was a happy person, I loved life, I was confident and I felt good in my own skin and was proud of most decisions I made,” the anguished message allegedly written by Cathriona White reads. “I met you, you introduced me to cocaine, prostitutes, mental abuse and disease.”
The note was published on Friday by Michael Avenatti, the attorney representing White’s estranged husband and mother. He claims that it was recently discovered on White’s iPad during a forensic exam connected to the wrongful death suit. White took her own life in September 2015.
“You did good things for me but being with you broke me down as a person Jim,” the note continues. “I was promised Jekyll and instead I got Hyde. Because I love you I would have stuck out Hyde all year and done everything he wanted to be with Jekyll for 5 of those but you threw me away when you absorbed anything worthwhile that was left of me.”
According to Mark Burton – White’s estranged husband – and her mother, Brigid Sweetman, Carrey was responsible for giving White three STDs and using a fake name to obtain the prescription drugs that she used to commit suicide.
However, Carrey countered the allegations with his own lawsuit on Friday contending that Burton “pressured” White into accusing Carrey of giving her herpes in 2013 after a botched wax job left her with “bumps,” the Daily Mail reported.
It is unclear whether the note, which is dated April 8, 2013, was ever sent to Carrey or if he ever saw it, but the message blames Carrey for transmiting “hsv and hpv.”
