According to TMZ, she left behind a suicide note that mentions her September 24th breakup with Carrey and on that same day, she wrote this on Twitter: “Signing off Twitter, I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest.”

Last night White was found dead in her home by two of her friends. Los Angeles police say it appears that she intentionally overdosed on prescription pills.

Carrey and White dated on and off ever since 2012, and according to Gossip Cop, this is the statement Carrey released about his girlfriend:
“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.”

In the weeks prior to Cathriona’s last tweet on September 24th, she wrote a couple of eerily worded phrases on her social media accounts. On September 23rd, her tweet was a W.B. Yeats. quote that said, “Faeries, come take me out of this dull world, for I would ride with you upon the wind.” Just two weeks prior to that, she posted a meme on her Instagram page that said, “I sometimes smile and act like nothing is wrong. It’s call dealing with sh*t and staying strong.”

Jim Carrey’s last tweet was on September 16th when he posted a photo of himself and cited Cathriona White as the person who snapped the photo.

White’s suicide happened so soon after she and Carrey’s breakup, that it seems like that could have possibly had something to do with her pain, although that hasn’t yet been confirmed. We offer our deepest condolences to Cathriona’s family and Jim Carrey during this difficult time. May Cathriona rest peacefully.
