Jim Carrey is mourning the death of his girlfriend Cathriona White. See statement below.

As Gossip Cop reported, White was found dead of an apparent suicide in her Los Angeles home on Monday night. The Irish makeup artist was discovered unresponsive by a friend, who called 911. The LAPD responded to the call, and investigators found pills on the scene suggesting a possible overdose.

Less than two hours after the news broke, Carrey released a statement confirming White’s death. “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,” said the actor. He added, “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.”

As Gossip Cop noted earlier, Carrey and White had an on-and-off relationship dating back to 2012. They were believed to be together as recently as May. TMZ has reported that an alleged suicide note found referenced a September 24 breakup with Carrey, although that has not been confirmed. He last tweeted about White on September 16, giving her credit for a photo she took of him. Gossip Cop will continue to have updates.
