Jim Carrey won't be going to trial in an ugly legal battle over the apparent suicide of his former girlfriend Cathriona White, as the matters have been dismissed.
Both White's husband and her mother had sued Carrey and claimed he was to blame for her 2015 death by drug overdose. Jim filed a countersuit in September claiming the lawsuits were an attempt to exploit a famous actor. He also claimed his late-ex had extorted him by threatening to go to the press with false allegations that he had given her multiple sexually transmitted diseases.
In addition to claiming Carrey gave White illegal drugs that she used to overdose, her husband and mother alleged that contracting STDs was among the causes of White's mental distress.
A rep for Jim Carrey confirmed the matters were dismissed on Jan. 25, but wouldn't comment beyond saying the actor is looking forward to moving on with his life.
