Today, we learned that Jim Carrey’s girlfriend Cathriona White tragically committed suicide. The makeup artist was only 28-years-old. TMZ tells us the LAPD found her body in a LA household after responding to a call last night. Cause of death is believed to be an overdose since pills were allegedly found next to her body.
What’s chilling is that White reportedly left a suicide note for Carrey, 53, who she dated on-and-off since 2012. After recently reuniting in May, the two apparently broke up on September 24, which the note references. She tweeted this that same day.
Signing off Twitter, I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest. ✌️❤️ to yo all

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.”
