Our thoughts are with Jim Carrey this morning.
The 53-year-old actor's on-again-off-again girlfriend Cathriona White was found dead in an apparent suicide last night, E! News confirms.
"I am shocked and deeply saddened by the passing of my sweet Cathriona," Carrey tells E! News 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."
The Los Angeles Coroner's office tells E! News that authorities responded to a call in the L.A. area on Monday evening, and when they arrived at a residence, they found the body of White, 28, at her home in Sherman Oaks at 8:46 p.m.
Police say White was pronounced dead at the scene from a possible overdose. Pills were found next to her and there was a note. An autopsy will take place later.
