Cathriona White, who had an on-again, off-again relationship with actor, Jim Carrey since 2012, was found dead in her Los Angeles home on Monday, from an apparent suicide.
“I am shocked and deeply saddened by the passing of my sweet Cathriona,” Carrey said in a statement. “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.”
Lt. Fred Corral, from the Los Angeles Country Coronor’s Office, confirms that the paramedics who responded to White’s Sherman Oaks home on Monday night, pronounced the 30-year-old dead at the scene.
“The report is not completed, but it is an apparent suicide,” Corral said.
He reports that the body is to be examined on Wednesday and details will be revealed then.
White posted her last tweet to Twitter on Sept. 24, 2015, just four days before her death.
“Signing off Twitter, I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest,” she wrote.
Carrey and White’s three-year on/off relationship started back when White had been working in the beauty industry as a stylist for high-profile photo shoots. Some of the make-up artist’s notable work includes David Hasselhoff and Divergent actress, Lyndie Greenwood for and Elle feature shoot, and the Divergent film premiere. Much of her work can bee seen on her Instagram page.
“Cat was a very nice, sweet, cheerful person to work with,” photographer Brie Childers, who worked closely with White, told People Magazine. “She was someone who I would look forward to seeing on my shoots. She left a trail behind of smiles, and I hope she will find some peace now.”
Some of Carrey and White’s relationship details can be seen on their Instagram accounts. Carrey often posted the Ireland native’s scenic photographs, as she was talented with the camera, along with his own quotes.
White appears to have been an optimistic person, at least on social media. Her Instagram bio included the words “Love, Learn, Laugh a Lot, Be Creative, Be Silly, Be Kind, See the World.”
The couple was last seen together in N.Y.C in May, hand in hand, possibly rekindling their relationship after their last breakup.
