Carrey and the Irish beauty pictured above in New York City in May, with Carrey sporting a jersey for the Irish hurling team from White's home county of Tipperary I am shocked and deeply saddened by the passing of my sweet Cathriona.
'She didn't say she was going to Hollywood - she just said LA.
While the death is believed to be a suicide, an official ruling has not yet been made.
Jim Carrey's ex-girlfriend Cathriona White, 28, has committed suicide.
The make-up artist, originally from the small town of Cappawhite in Ireland's County Tipperary, was found dead at her Los Angeles, California home Monday night, after two friends went to check in on her at the $1.1million residence.
Los Angeles deputy chief coroner Ed Winter said that a drug overdose is suspected because several pills were found near White's body.
After that, she found work as a beautician in Tipperary before packing her bags for America in 2009.
'Most of her friends had emigrated and her brother was working abroad with the army and I think she just thought, "I want something a bit more glamorous." She didn't make a big deal of it,' another school-friend said.
A neighbor, who did not want to be named, said that two girls helped White move in when she first arrived on the block a few months ago.
The neighbor said it seemed strange that she would be living there alone.'I saw her on a few occasions.
