"When I came to Hollywood to make it as a comedian, I soon learned that the details of my private life would be handed out to the media like free dinner vouchers," the statement read.

"I never dreamed that the people I love most in the world would also be on the menu. What a shame."

White's autopsy reveals that the 30-year-old overdosed on prescription pills, including including propranolol, the sleep aid zolpidem, oxycodone and oxymorphone.

On Tuesday, details of White's suicide note (initially found by police) were made public, which included an apology to Carrey, whom she split up with just a few days before her death.  

Carrey and White dated on and off since 2012, after meeting on a film set.

"I've spent 3 days now in disbelief that you're not here. I can go on brokenhearted and try to put the pieces back. I could, I just don't have the will this time," White wrote.

"I'm sorry you felt I wasn't there for you. I tried to give you my best part."

As for her funeral, White left instructions to the Ace Ventura star.

"I don't really know about burial or that sort of thing. You are my family so whatever you choose will be fine."

"Please forgive me," she wrote."I'm just not for this world."

Carrey did release a statement following her death, stating that he was "deeply saddened by the passing of my sweet Cathriona.

"She was a truly kind and delicate Irish flower, too sensitive for this soil, to whom loving and being loved was all that sparkled."
