Jim Carrey Carries Girlfriend Cathriona White’s Casket At Funeral (PHOTO)
Jim Carrey carried girlfriend Cathriona White’s casket as one of her funeral pallbearers in Ireland on Saturday.
Wearing a black suit and tie, Carrey stood on the left rear as he and the other pallbearers exited a local church, with another man’s arm around his shoulder (see photo right). The actor attended both the mass and the burial, and participated in a procession around town. He arrived in Ireland on Friday, but did not attend the wake, which drew hundreds of mourners.
As Gossip Cop reported, White was found dead in her Los Angeles home on September 28. Though it is suspected she took her own life, an official cause of death has not yet been determined due to pending toxicology results. Several pill bottles were discovered near White’s body, all prescribed to an alias used by Carrey.
Gossip Cop was told, however, that Carrey had no idea the pills were taken from his own home. Furthermore, although some outlets reported he and White were broken up at the time of her death, that was not the case. A source exclusively told Gossip Cop that they were still together, but taking a breather.
Carrey has understandably been devastated over the tragedy. He said in a statement last week, “I am shocked and deeply saddened by the passing of my 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.”
