This is just all kinds of fucking terrible and there’s really no other way to say it. Cathriona White, who dated Jim Carrey on-and-off since 2012, was found dead at a home in Los Angeles last night. Police believe she intentionally overdosed on pills. She was only 28.
TMZ says that two of Cathriona’s friends went to check on her last night and they found her body. There were pills next to her. She also left a suicide note where she wrote about how she broke up with Jim Carrey on September 24th. 53-year-old Jim and Cathriona started dating in 2012 and they dated a few months before breaking up. They decided to give it another go in May.
Cathriona tweeted this a few days ago:
Signing off Twitter, I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest. ✌🏼️❤️ to yo all

UPDATE – Jim told Entertainment Tonight that he’s “deeply saddened” about the death of his ex-girlfriend and he also said this:
“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.”
