Jim Carrey's Ex-GF Reportedly Commits Suicide After Their Breakup
Jim Carrey's girlfriend, Cathriona White, allegedly committed suicide shortly after ending her relationship with the actor.
According to TMZ, Los Angeles police found the 28-year-old's body on Monday upon responding to a call from White's concerned friends.
The Irish makeup artist left a suicide note referencing her 53-year-old ex, whom she allegedly began dating in 2012.
The pair ended their relationship on several occasions. In a 2013 interview with an Irish newspaper, Carrey reportedly shared,
I did go out with an Irish girl…We're not seeing each other anymore. But she is lovely.
Paparazzi shots of the pair arm-in-arm in New York last May suggest they reconciled though the gossip site claims Carrey ended the relationship again last Thursday.
Police are reportedly considering a drug overdose to be the official cause of White's death.
White's final tweet before the incident may have alluded to the tragic loss.
Signing off Twitter, I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest.to yo all — Cathriona white (@littleirishcat) September 24, 2015
Update: Carrey confirmed her death with the following statement to FOX411:
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.
