Jim Carrey’s girlfriend Cathriona White was found dead Monday of an apparent suicide, just four days after the couple reportedly broke up for the second time.

Ms. White’s body was found at a Los Angeles residence alongside a suicide note addressed to Mr. Carrey, which references their breakup on Thursday, TMZ reported.

“I am shocked and deeply saddened by the passing of my sweet Cathriona,” Mr. Carrey, 53, 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.”

Law enforcement sources said Ms. White, 28, died from a prescription drug overdose, TMZ reported. Two of her friends reportedly found her lifeless body after going to check on her.

On the day of the alleged breakup, Ms. White tweeted: “Signing off Twitter, I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest.”

The couple reportedly met in 2012, dated a few months and then split. They rekindled their relationship in May, TMZ reported.
