TMZ is reporting that Jim Carrey’s ex-girlfriend Cathriona White has died in an apparent suicide. She was 28.
Law enforcement tells the site that the Los Angeles Police Department responded to a call Monday (Sept. 29) evening. They went to a residence and found White’s body, along with a suicide note address to Carrey that allegedly references their recent breakup. The LAPD believes she died of a drug overdose.
Cathriona’s last tweet was on Sept. 24, the date she names as the breakup in the note. “Signing off Twitter, I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest,” she wrote at the time.
According to the Daily Mail, Carrey and White met in 2012, dated for a few months and then split in 2013. They rekindled their relationship earlier this year.
In recent weeks, Carrey has posted several photographs to Twitter taken by White.
Carrey tells Zap2it that he is “shocked and deeply saddened” by White’s passing.
“I am shocked and deeply saddened by the passing of my sweet Cathriona,” says Carrey in a statement. “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.”
