Jim Carrey’s 28-year-old girlfriend committed suicide Monday night, and referenced the couple’s breakup in her note.
Police responded to an emergency call in Los Angeles after two friends went to check on Cathriona White and found her body. Authorities believe White died from an overdose because there were pills next to her.
“Our sources say White left a suicide note addressed to Carrey which references their break up on Sept. 24,” TMZ reports.
Carrey met White in 2012 and dated her for a few months before breaking up, but they had rekindled their relationship in May.

Carrey put out this statement Tuesday confirming White’s death.
“I am shocked and deeply saddened by the passing of my sweet Cathriona,” Carrey wrote. “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.”
