Jim Carrey has spoken out on the tragic fate of Cathriona White.
As previously reported, Cathriona White died of a suspected suicide on Monday, reportedly leaving behind a suicide note that referenced her recent split from the actor.
The pair met in 2012, dated for several months and rekindled their romance this past May.
"I am shocked and deeply saddened by the passing of my sweet Cathriona," Carrey says in his statement, continuing:
"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."
White, an Irish native who worked as a makeup artist, was "pronounced dead at 8:40 p.m. last [Monday] night at a residence," Los Angeles Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter confirms.
A police department spokesperson mentioned “pills” found at the scene and added that the "final cause of death won't be released until we get full toxicology and tests back."
White issued her final Tweet last Thursday, perhaps aware of what she planned to do when writing:
"Signing off Twitter, I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest."
We also send our thoughts and prayers to White's family.
