Cathriona White

Jim Carrey’s ex-girlfriend, Cathriona White, was found dead in her Los Angeles home from an apparent suicide, E! News reported this morning.

Paramedics who responded to White's Sherman Oaks home Monday night pronounced the 30-year-old dead at the scene, said Lt. Fred Corral of the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office. "The report is not completed, but it is an apparent suicide," Corral said.

The actor released a statement saying he was "shocked and deeply saddened" by the news, adding that White was "a truly kind and delicate Irish flower, too sensitive for this soil, to whom loving and being loved was all that sparkled."

Cathriona White was born and raised in Ireland and grew up in Tipperary.

She moved to California to work as a makeup artist. She worked on several high-profile shoots including one with David Hasselhoff.

She loved animals and nature. Her Instagram account is full of photos of her outdoor adventures, animals and beautiful scenery. She also had a dog whose name is Ella.
