The L.A. County Coroner’s Office confirmed to ET that White was found dead inside her home in Sherman Oaks, Calif., on Monday night. Police sources told TMZ that the Irish native left behind a suicide note, which mentioned her breakup from Carrey on Sept. 24.
The couple, who first met back in 2012, two years after Carrey’s high-profile split from Jenny McCarthy, dated briefly for several months until early 2013. Carrey confirmed his breakup with White, a makeup artist, in an interview with the Irish Independent in March of that year.
“I did go out with an Irish girl,” he told the outlet at the time. “We’re not seeing each other anymore. But she is lovely.”
Us Weekly confirmed in May 2015 that the pair had rekindled their romance after they were photographed hand in hand in NYC. “They’re having a great time now,” a source told Us at the time.
Indeed, they were together through at least Sept. 16, when Carrey last mentioned White on social media. “Grand Central, NYC,” the actor captioned an artsy photo of himself standing under an arched awning. “Photo by Cathriona White.”
White, meanwhile, posted a cryptic final tweet on Sept. 24, the same day of their alleged breakup. “Signing off Twitter, I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest,” she wrote. “[Love] to you all.”
Her Instagram updates oftentimes included many selfies of her life.
Prior to White, Carrey dated McCarthy for five years until the relationship ended in April 2010. In the late ’90s, he also dated actress Renee Zellweger and model Anchal Joseph. Carrey was previously married to his Dumb and Dumber costar Lauren Holly from 1996 to 1997, and to Melissa Womer, with whom he shares a 28-year-old daughter Jane, from 1987 to 1995.
