Jim Carrey's longtime girlfriend Cathriona White has been found dead in what authorities are calling a suspected suicide. The woman, who was 30 years old, was found with pills near her body, confirms the L.A. County Coroner's office. Cathriona White was pronounced dead at 8:40 pm on Monday from her home on Briarwood Dr. in Sherman Oaks, CA. Assistant Chief in the Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner, Ed Winter, told The Star the following.
"She was found and there were pills located near her along with a suicide note. The autopsy is pending and final causes won't be put out until we get all the tests back."
At this time, it is not confirmed if Jim Carrey was mentioned in the suicide note. But it reportedly alluded to the couple's recent split. No further information has been released in the case. Jim Carrey and Cathriona White began dating back in 2013. She is an Irish makeup artist, and has had an on-again, off-again relationship with the comedian and actor. They rekindled their romance this past May. Cathriona White last posted on her Twitter page September 24th, leaving a cryptic message that stated the following.
"Signing off Twitter, I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest."
"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."
While the suicide note allegedly hints that the couple split, the pair were still together publicly. On September 16, Jim Carrey last mentioned Cathriona White on his personal Twitter page. There, he shared a black and white photo of himself standing inside Grand Central Station in New York. He credits the photo, which reads 'I am nothing, what a relief', to his girlfirend. No further information has been released at this time. But the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) is being shared wide in her memory, in case anyone else is struggling with suicidal tendencies in the wake of this tragedy.
