Jim Carrey

The mother of Jim Carrey's late ex will drop his wrongful death lawsuit if he releases his sexually transmitted disease (STDs) test results.

The 54-year-old actor was recently hit with a second lawsuit after Brigid Sweetman - the mother of Jim Carrey's former girlfriend Cathriona White - claimed her daughter took her own life after the star gave her three STDs.

Now, Brigid - along with Mark Burton who filed the first wrongful death lawsuit against Jim - has said she will drop the charges against him, but only if he can prove results of the test he took in 2013 said he was clean.

In a statement released on Wednesday (12.10.16), she said: "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 '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."

Brigid claims that the 'Bruce Almighty' star - under the alias Jose Lopez - and Cathriona both received test results in 2013, and it was then that her daughter discovered she had tested positive for two different types of herpes, as well as chlamydia.

The lawsuit then claims that Cathriona was struggling emotionally before she overdosed on Ambien, Propranolol, and Percocet.

Brigid said: "If they publicly release and publish the full Quest Diagnostics lab report for the blood sample Carrey gave on Jan. 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 apologise.

"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."
