A: what's your idea about that?
B: I don't say a word! If I do, I'm a dead woman!
A: a dead woman? what do you mean?
B: In American movies, for example someone says "if he knows, I'm a dead man"! Implying that there will be consequences. I just felt like using this phrase even if it is not relevant!/ even being irrelative! / however being irrelative!

Which one is correct?

    The opposite of "relevant" is "irrelevant." I do not believe "irrelative" is a word.

    For B, only "even if it is not relevant" is correct.

    EDIT: Apparently "irrelative" is in fact a word. However, "irrelevant" is much more common and colloquial.
