Jim Carrey Supports Late Girlfriend’s Grieving Family
The family of Cathriona White just suffered a terrible tragedy.
Now, her on-again-off-again boyfriend, Jim Carrey, is offering a helping hand. According to E! News, the actor has been in close contact with Cathriona’s family, and is doing whatever he can to support them through their hard time. That includes the financial assistance needed to fly White’s body from her home in Los Angeles to her birth country of Ireland.
“Jim has offered any kind of financial assistance he can provide for Cat’s family,” a source told the website, also revealing he paid for her family to stay in a hotel during their time in Los Angeles. “He loved her very much. He wants to do whatever he can to help them through this difficult time,” the source said.
Cathriona was found in her home on Sept. 28, along with a suicide note mentioning Jim and their recent breakup. The following day, the actor released a statement regarding her death, saying he was shocked and saddened by the passing of his 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.”
