The mother of Jim Carrey‘s ex-girlfriend says she is willing to drop her wrongful death suit blaming the comedian for her daughter’s suicide if Carrey releases the results of an alleged STD test to the public.
Brigid Sweetman, the mother of Cathriona White, told TheWrap in a statement:
“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 [Burton] ‘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. If they publicly release and publish the full Quest Diagnostics lab report for the blood sample Carrey gave on January 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 apologize. But if it shows differently, and it will, then Carrey and his attorney must admit they have lied to the media and the public. The public has a right to know when they have been lied to.”
Representatives for Carrey did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment on this new statement.
Sweetman’s lawsuit heavily echoes a lawsuit filed previously by White’s estranged husband, Mark Burton. Sweetman claims that the “Ace Ventura” star infected White with multiple STDs without telling her, misled her about the symptoms of the diseases, and provided her with illegally obtained drugs that ultimately led to her death.
In a statement issued Tuesday, Carrey’s lawyer Martin Singer said that White had complained of having a “contentious relationship” with Sweetman, and claimed that they had been “estranged for years.”
