Jim Carrey is tired of the BS!

As we reported, on Monday, Cathriona White's secret estranged husband Mark Burton filed a lawsuit against the actor accusing him of providing her with deadly prescription meds. Last September, the 30-year-old committed suicide by overdosing on Ambien, Propranolol, and Percocet.

That same day, the Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind star's lawyer -- Marty Singer -- says his client is in no way, shape, or form responsible for his ex-girlfriend's death.

Singer says Carrey didn't give her a single pill, and that she "stole" his prescriptions.

The 54-year-old comedic legend says he will fight Burton's allegations and will NOT settle the case! He said:

"There are moments in life when you have to stand up and defend your honor against the evil in this world. I will not tolerate this heartless attempt to exploit me or the woman I loved."

Additionally, White had problems long before she was in a relationship with the thespian.

"Cat's troubles were born long before I met her and sadly her tragic end was beyond anyone's control. I really hope someday soon people will stop trying to profit from this and let her rest in peace."

Carrey and his counsel insinuate that Burton's lawsuit is a "a money-grab scheme," and that him and Cathriona were only married so she wouldn't be sent back to Ireland.

We just hope the truth will come out!
