While loved ones of Jim Carrey’s ex-girlfriend recently dropped their wrongful death suit against him, RadarOnline can exclusively confirm the famous actor has also dropped his countersuit against the grieving family in return.
Cathriona White’s family filed a Jan. 25 request at Los Angeles Superior Court to dismiss their suit with prejudice, meaning they cannot re-litigate their wrongful death claim against Carrey.
A county court clerk entered the dismissal for both cases. However, it is unknown whether Carrey, Burton and Sweetman hashed out a confidential settlement.
As RadarOnline.com reported, White committed suicide by overdose at age 30 in her Sherman Oaks home in September 2015.

White’s family accused Carrey, 56, of causing her death and alleged the actor gave White an STD, which his late girlfriend had also accused him of in a lawsuit filed long before her death.
Carrey had been fighting the legal battle for years, and his lawyer claimed White forged the medical documents in order to make it seem like the actor had given her herpes.
After White’s suicide, Carrey continued to deny the claims, insisting he was “blinded by affection” and the victim of extortion.
