Jim Carrey’s on/off girlfriend has committed suicide, it has been reported.
According to TMZ, 28-year old makeup artist Cathriona White was found unresponsive in her Los Angeles home by cops on Monday night after they were alerted by a phone call by two friends who discovered her. She was pronounced dead on the scene.
There were reportedly pills near her body and a suicide note, leading cops to believe that she killed herself by overdosing.
The suicide note was reportedly addressed to Carrey, in which White references their September 24 break up. White’s last tweet was also on September 24, and it reads, ‘Signing off Twitter, I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest. ✌?️❤️ to yo all.’
Carrey and White met in 2012 and dated for a few months before breaking up. They rekindled the relationship in May this year.
In a statement on Tuesday, Carrey said, ‘I am shocked and deeply saddened by the passing of my sweet Cathriona. She was a truly kind and delicate Irish flower, too sensitive for this soil, to whom loving and being loved was all that sparkled. My heart goes out to her family and friends and to everyone who loved and cared about her. We have all been hit with a lightning bolt.’
