Jim Carrey’s on again-off again girlfriend Cathriona White has died of an apparent suicide, the Los Angeles coroner said on Tuesday.
White, 30, an Irish-born make-up artist who was pictured out with Carrey in the past several months, was found dead in her Los Angeles apartment on Monday night, deputy chief coroner Ed Winter said.
Winter said a drug overdose was suspected because several pills were found near her body. The death was called into authorities as a suicide but a final determination was yet to be made, Winter said.
Celebrity website TMZ.com said White and Carrey, 53, met in 2012, had an on-and-off romance and rekindled their relationship in May before splitting up last week.
Cathriona also left a suspicious tweet on September 24 for her followers saying “Signing off Twitter, I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest. (Peace and Love emojis) to you all.”
Carrey, the slapstick star of comedy movies including Dumb and Dumber and Bruce Almighty, ended a five-year relationship with actor Jenny McCarthy in 2010. He has two previous marriages that ended in divorce.
Carrey’s representatives did not immediately return calls for comment on Tuesday.
