Cathriona White Asked Jim Carrey To Arrange Her Funeral In Suicide Note

Last September the tragic news that Jim Carrey’s on/off girlfriend Cathriona White had taken her own life broke. Back then, little was known about the 30-year-old Irish beauty other than that she had won the heart of the Hollywood megastar, who said he was devastated by her unexpected death.

It was known that Cathriona, a beautician and make-up artist, took a concoction of prescription pills and the toxicology report now released and obtained by People Magazine, confirms she committed suicide.

It also reveals she allegedly spoke to Jim via Facetime for three minutes prior to the overdose, but ignored a text he sent to her iPhone asking her where his anti-inflamatry pills were.

The report states Cathriona left a suicide note addressed to Jim. In it, she said: “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. I’m sorry you felt I wasn’t there for you. I tried to give you my best part.”

“Please forgive me” she added. “I’m just not for this world.”

She signed the letter, which was left on her dining room table in her rented Los Angeles home, with the name Jim called her, “Dewdrop”.

Cathriona asked for belongings to be sold and given to her family and discussed her funeral, saying: “I don’t really know about burial or that sort of thing. You are my family so whatever you choose will be fine.”

Jim attended the funeral in Co Tipperary, Ireland and acted as pallbearer.

Cathriona was previously married to Mark Burton, who commented she suffered from depression and had spoken about suicide during their relationship.

The court documents reveal the Irish expatriate had talked about being “madly in love” with Jim, who she met on a film set in 2012, but experienced depressive episodes when she felt the star was “slipping away” from her.

Jim issued an emotional statement after Cathriona’s death. He said 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.”
