The Hollywood actor has filed court papers responding to a wrongful death lawsuit filed by Cathriona's mother Brigid Sweetman - who claims her daughter took her own life after the star gave her three STDs - and insists he was involved in "two romantic relationships" with her between 2012 and 2015.

He said Cathriona brought up the subject of marriage in late 2012 because she was keen to tie the knot to obtain a green card, but he was not, and he was shocked when he later found out she had wed another guy, Mark Burton - who has also filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the actor - a few months later.

According to MailOnline, he stated in his declaration: "To my surprise, I later learned that in January 2013 Cat married a man in Las Vegas for her green card, while at the same time maintaining her actual relationship with me.

"Cat was regularly with me at my home in January 2013 and I was supporting her financially, and we were very much in love.

"I never met her green card husband Mark Burton until after Cat's death, nor did Cat discuss with me any details of her marriage to him while she was alive.

"Nor did she ever tell me that she had a wedding or that she had ever been courted by Mr. Burton and she never wore a wedding ring."

Jim also denies giving Cathriona any STDs in his declaration, and insists she became "aggravated" with him a week before her death because he was spending a lot of time with his daughter who had to undergo "emergency surgery".

What's more, he claims he gave her a "weekly stipend of $800" when they were dating and paid for "many other expenses."

But a lawyer for Mark and Brigid hit out at Jim's filing, claiming he is a "fraud".

They said a statement: "Earlier today, Jim Carrey filed a baseless motion with the court as part of his continued attack on a grieving mother. His conduct is disgusting and dishonest. Who attacks a mother of a dead girl?

"Carrey and his "fixer" lawyers are trying to deceive the media and the public. They are making up facts they know to be untrue in an effort to save Carrey's career, which was over when he lied about not having STDs.

"Why will they not release the 2013 STD test results that Carrey took under the false name "Jose Lopez"? They should release the results and let people decide for themselves who lacks credibility.

"Carrey is a fraud and when he is forced to testify under oath, the ugly truth will be laid bare. We are confident that the court will see through the nonsense Carrey is peddling."
