Jim Carrey's On-Again, Off-Again Girlfriend Commits Suicide

By Jason Marshall


UPDATE: Jim Carrey has released a statement on the apparent suicide of his ex-girlfriend Cathriona White

The 53-year-old actor told Just Jared, “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.



Jim Carrey's estranged girlfriend Cathriona White has ended her own life, according to reports. 

TMZ was the first to report the news on Tuesday, after having spoken with the LAPD.

That conversation revealed that police were called to a Los Angeles area residence Monday night and that they discovered the body of the 28-year-old. Two of White's friends made the 911 call after going to check on her. 

White allegedly left a suicide note, in which Carrey is mentioned, and may have overdosed on an unknown substance. 

The note reportedly makes mention of the fact that Carrey and White split up - for the second time - on September 24th.

Jim, 53, and Cathriona met in 2012 and dated for a few months before splitting up. They were spotted together, holding hands in New York this past May. 

Eerily, White's last post on Twitter (made on September 24th) seems - in hindsight - to be very final.
