Jim Carrey Sued for Supplying Ex with Fatal Drugs

Breaking News

Jim Carrey is being accused of facilitating his ex-girlfriend's death by providing the pills that killed her ... so claims the woman's estranged husband in a new lawsuit.

Cathriona White died September 24, 2015, after OD'ing on Ambien, Propranolol and Percocet. The suit claims all 3 drugs were found in pill bottles bearing the name Arthur King ... the pseudonym for Jim.

BTW ... it's illegal in California to get prescriptions by misrepresenting who you are.

The suit claims 3 or 4 days before White died Carrey gave her the pills in question. The suit also alleges Carrey tried to cover his tracks after her death, texting her he either misplaced the drugs or she may have taken them without his knowledge.

According to the suit, Carrey knew White was prone to depression and even tried to commit suicide in the past, which makes it more egregious if he supplied her with drugs.
