EXCLUSIVE: Jim Carrey lied about herpes outbreak to his ex before she caught the STD, making her feel like 'damaged goods' and prompting anxiety-induced vomiting and inability to eat, she told her therapist before committing suicide
The ex-girlfriend of Jim Carrey told her therapist she wanted to 'have it all stop' as she struggled to eat and sleep while dealing with constant vomiting that was caused by the anxiety she was experiencing from her relationship with the actor. That admission was made on July 18, 2003 and included in medical records from White's doctors that have been subpoenaed by lawyers for both Carrey and White's mother Brigid Sweetman in her wrongful death lawsuit against the actor. Session notes and text messages obtained by DailyMail.com that span from October 2012 to July 2013 reveal that Cathriona White had been seeing Carrey for just six months when he suddenly broke off the relationship, a move that came after White had been tested for STDs but before she had received her results. The results came back positive soon after, and White told her therapist that she had contracted the STDs from Carrey, claiming that she questioned bumps on his genitals before her first outbreak but he dismissed them as irritation from shaving. Text messages from White to Carrey show a similar exchange as well between the two at this time.
