Cathriona White's mum says lawsuit will be dropped if Carrey can prove he didn't have STD

The mother of Jim Carrey's late ex will drop his wrongful death lawsuit if he releases his sexually transmitted disease (STDs) test results.

The 54-year-old actor was recently hit with a second lawsuit after Brigid Sweetman - the mother of Jim Carrey's former girlfriend Cathriona White - claimed her daughter took her own life after the star gave her three STDs.

Now, Brigid - along with Mark Burton who filed the first wrongful death lawsuit against Jim - has said she will drop the charges against him, but only if he can prove results of the test he took in 2013 said he was clean.

In a statement released on Wednesday (12.10.16), she said: "Jim Carrey and his attorney have told the world that Carrey has never had STDs and he has never tested positive for STDs. They have called me and Mark 'shams' for claiming otherwise.

"I am demanding they immediately release the full 2013 lab results so people can judge for themselves who is telling the truth and who is lying."

Brigid claims that the 'Bruce Almighty' star - under the alias Jose Lopez - and Cathriona both received test results in 2013, and it was then that her daughter discovered she had tested positive for two different types of herpes, as well as chlamydia.

The lawsuit then claims that Cathriona was struggling emotionally before she overdosed on Ambien, Propranolol, and Percocet.

Brigid said: "If they publicly release and publish the full Quest Diagnostics lab report for the blood sample Carrey gave on Jan. 28, 2013 at 11:40 a.m. under the name Jose Lopez and if it shows Carrey did not test positive for STDs, I will immediately dismiss the case and apologise.

In response to Ms Sweetman's lawsuit, Carrey's lawyer said: "It is understandable that a mother who has lost a daughter will look for someone to blame.

"But in directing her grief and rage at Jim Carrey and joining this ridiculous attempt to capitalise on Cathriona's suicide, Ms Sweetman is heading down the same dark path as Cathriona's green-card 'husband' Mark Burton."

He has denied any involvement in supplying drugs to Ms White.

"It would be easy for me to get in a back room with this man's lawyer and make this go away, but there are some moments in life when you have to stand up and defend your honour against the evil in this world," he said.

"I will not tolerate this heartless attempt to exploit me or the woman I loved. Cat's troubles were born long before I met her and sadly her tragic end was beyond anyone's control.

"I really hope that some day soon people will stop trying to profit from this and let her rest in peace."

In an interview with US website TMZ Carrey's lawyer Marty Singer claimed his client never gave White a single pill.

Singer called the lawsuit "a money-grab scheme".

Lawyers for the Hollywood star have previously said that the allegations against him are "bogus" and "categorically disputed".
