Cathriona White, the girlfriend of Jim Carrey, has died of an apparent suicide. TMZ reports that the 28-year-old's body was found by police at her Los Angeles residence on Monday, where she allegedly left a suicide note addressed to the actor. She and Carrey, 53, had been dating on and off since 2012, but reportedly ended their relationship as recently as last Thursday. Police tell TMZ that pills were found next to White's body, and they believe her death was caused by an overdose. White last tweeted on September 24:

Jim Carrey has released a statement confirming White's death: "I am shocked and 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. 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."
