Jim Carrey has failed to get a wrongful death lawsuit over his ex-girlfriend’s suicide thrown out of court.
A judge said the trial will go ahead. Carrey is accused of using his wealth and celebrity status to provide Cathriona White prescription drugs. White overdosed on these drugs and died.
White and Carrey were once a couple. The Irish woman’s husband, Mark Burton and her mother, Brigid Sweetman are suing Carrey in Los Angeles.
The judge ruled that Carrey should be tried under jury and it will also be highlighted that the actor gave White three secually transmitted diseases while they were together. There are text messages between the pair about this topic.
The 20 day trial is to begin on April 26.
