The motion also included a 10-page declaration from Carrey in which he narrated the troubled relationship in deeply personal terms.

Carrey said he truly cared for White but like all couples they had their ups and downs.

The actor claimed that in order to obtain a Green card, White married Burton, even though she and Carrey were still dating.

According to, Carrey said that he paid for White’s housing and provided her with a stipend but turned down her request for marriage so she could avoid deportation back to Ireland.

He is alleged to have illegally provided her prescription drugs involved in her suicide.

White’s mother also accused him of giving her three sexually transmitted diseases.
