Cathriona White, the late ex-girlfriend of Jim Carrey who took an overdose and died in September 2015, contracted Hepatitis A, Herpes and Chlamydia when the actor slept with her and it contributed to the decline in her mental health, her mother has claimed.

Bridgid Sweetman is said to have filed lab test results at the Superior Court in Los Angeles yesterday that she claims prove the 54-year-old star tested positive for three STDs in 2013 and subsequently slept with her daughter.
Court papers obtained by TMZ state ‘The Truman Show’ star “celebrated Valentine’s Day by having unprotected sex with Ms White without telling her that she was placing her health at risk.”
In a statement on Thursday, Brigid added: “Carrey has now been shown for what he is — a dishonest celebrity who thinks he can fool people just because he is famous.

“I am going to make sure that the world learns the truth about what Jim Carrey has done.”
She continued: “Instead of giving Ms White flowers and chocolates, Carrey should have given her his STD results and refrained from having sex with her. Even after doing so, he failed to inform Ms White that he had likely just infected her with STDs. This was not only callous, it was criminal.”
Jim is also being sued in a wrongful death lawsuit over the suicide of the 30-year-old makeup artist by her estranged husband Mark Burton.
Brigid previously said she would drop her lawsuit if Jim could prove he didn’t have the infections.

When Cathriona died, Jim was invited to be a pallbearer at her funeral in Tipperary, Ireland, and released a statement at the time that read: “I am shocked and deeply saddened by the passing of my sweet Cathriona.
“She was a truly kind and delicate Irish flower, too sensitive for this soil, to whom loving and being loved was all that sparkled.”
