Jim Carrey's on-again/off-again 28-year-old girlfriend has apparently committed suicide ... TMZ has learned.
Law enforcement tells TMZ, LAPD responded to a call in the L.A. area Monday night. We're told they went to a residence and found the body of Cathriona White. The Los Angeles County Coroner confirmed the news to Entertainment Tonight.
Our sources say White left a suicide note addressed to Carrey which references their break up on Sept. 24. Officials also confirmed the note and told ET that White was pronounced dead at the scene and may have died of a possible overdose. Cause of death is still being investigated.
"I am shocked and deeply saddened by the passing of my sweet Cathriona," Carrey said in a statement to The Insider With Yahoo. "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 lightening bolt."
Law enforcement tells us they believe she died from an overdose of drugs — pills were next toher body. We're told 2 friends found Cathriona last night when they went to check on her.
53-year-old Carrey and White met in 2012, dated a few months and then split. They rekindled their relationship in May. Earlier this month, Carrey shared several photos taken by White.
