It appears that Jim Carrey's legal woes are far from over after an explosive new motion was filed on Friday in a Los Angeles court room.

Carrey is claiming that his late girlfriend Cathriona White forged STD test results prior to her attempt to extort the actor.

Those same files are being used in the wrongful death case filed against Carrey by White's mother, Brigid Sweetman and estranged husband, Mark Burton.

Death Ruled a Suicide

After splitting from Jenny McCarthy, the comedic actor met and fell for a makeup artist from Ireland. They dated on and off for years and everyone thought it was a fairy-tale romance until White was found dead in her Los Angeles home.

Cathriona White took her own life on September 28, 2015, just two weeks after her 30th birthday.  

Her death was ruled a suicide by an overdose of sleeping pills, heart medication and pain relievers.

At the scene of her death, police came across two notes, one of which was addressed specifically to Carrey.

Police interviewed Carrey in the months following White's death, ultimately deciding he was not a suspect. The Mask star remained close with her family and was even a pallbearer at her funeral in Ireland.

Lawsuits Against Carrey

After her death, Carrey was shocked to learn that White was married to another man at the time of her death, and he had filed a lawsuit claiming the actor was responsible for his wife's suicide.

During the time that Carrey and White had split, she had married an American by the name of Mark Burton. Their union was described as a marriage of convenience in order to keep her in the country.

Burton's lawsuit claims that one of the medications that was responsible for her death was given to her by Carrey, in spite of him knowing she suffered from depression and had previously attempted suicide.

White's mother has also launched a lawsuit because she believes her daughter was suicidal because of an STD she caught from Carrey.

"Jim Carrey should be ashamed of what he did to my daughter," she writes in her lawsuit. "As a family, we want the world to know the truth about who Jim Carrey really is."

Carrey is not taking these accusations lightly though.
