Jim Carrey's on-and-off girlfriend has passed away

Cathriona White was truly loved by her family and friends.

The family of Jim Carrey’s girlfriend released a heartfelt statement to the Irish Independent following her suicide on Sept. 29.

“Cathriona was a shining light in our lives who was loved deeply by her entire family. We will miss her terribly and at this difficult time we ask to be left in private to mourn our loss. There will be no further statements on behalf of the family.”

Zelda Williams, daughter of late comedian Robin Williams, spoke out on Twitter as an individual affected by suicide.

It was reported by TMZ that White was found in her Los Angeles home after two friends arrived to check on her. Authorities allege that her death was a result of an overdose, as pills were found next to her body.

White also left a suicide note that references a breakup with Carrey on Sept. 24. The comedian released a statement of his own to E! News on the date of her suicide. “I am shocked and deeply saddened by the passing of my sweet Cathriona,” he said. “She was a truly kind and delicate Irish flower, too sensitive for this soil, to whom loving and being loved was all that sparkled.”
