"Indeed, Carrey and his handlers made considerable efforts to publicize his supposed generosity as it related to the death of White. They did so … in an effort to paint Carrey as a 'grieving good guy,' as opposed to the individual who had illegally obtained and provided the drugs that killed White," the lawsuit states.

"What a terrible shame. 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 honor against the evil in this world. 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" Carrey told Radar, through his rep.
