Jim Carrey’s on-and-off girlfriend, Cathriona White, has passed away from an apparent suicide.
According to TMZ, White’s body was found in her Los Angeles residence after two friends went over to her home to check on her. The publication reports that a suicide note addressed to Carrey was found, in which White references a breakup she had with the actor on Sept. 24.
On the same day, White wrote on her Twitter:
Signing off Twitter, I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest. ✌🏼️❤️ to yo all

Authorities reportedly believes White, a makeup artist, died from an overdose as pills were found next to her body. She was 30.
“I am shocked and deeply saddened by the passing of my sweet Cathriona,” Carrey tells E! News 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.”
Carrey, 52, and White first met in 2012 and dated for a few months. They reconciled their relationship this May.
