Veteran comic actor Jim Carrey is facing legal action for allegedly procuring drugs under a bogus name for his Irish ex-girlfriend.

The estranged husband of Carrey’s late girlfriend, Cathriona White — who died after an overdose last year — is suing Carrey for wrongful death.

Mark Burton claims the star tried to hide his involvement in getting hold of prescription drugs for White, despite knowing she was “ill-equipped to ingest and manage highly addictive drugs outside the care of a licensed physician”.

According to the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles, the actor “used his immense wealth and celebrity status” to obtain opioids for White.
