Jim Carrey ‘Shocked and Saddened’ Over Girlfriend’s Apparent Suicide

Jim Carrey has opened up about the death of his girlfriend, Irish makeup artist Cathriona White, saying in a statement on Tuesday that he is “shocked and deeply saddened” by the loss of the 28-year-old.

“I am shocked and deeply saddened by the passing of my sweet Cathriona,” Carrey said in the statement, speaking out for the first time since her death. “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.”

White was found Monday night after the LAPD responded to a call in the L.A. area, according to TMZ, which broke the news. Police say she died from an apparent drug overdose, and sources told TMZ that White left a suicide note referencing her break up with Carrey on Sept. 24.

Carrey and White dated on-and-off since 2012, and rekindled their relationship in May. White most recently tweeted on Sept. 24, “Signing off Twitter, I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest.”

White worked in the makeup department in a few works, including series “The Online Gamer” and shorts “Firefly” and “Solitude.”
