On September 28, 2015, the life of famous comic actor Jim Carrey was suddenly turned upside down in the worst way possible. The body of his ex-girlfriend, 30-year-old make-up artist Cathriona White, had been found at her L.A. residence. The young woman had, it seemed, deliberately overdosed on prescription drugs, and her death left a huge hole in many people’s lives. And unfortunately, neither Carrey nor White’s family have as of yet been able to put the tragedy behind them. That is because many questions have arisen since White’s tragic passing, and they’re all incredibly difficult to answer.
Irish-born White was married but estranged from her husband Mark Burton. She had started dating Carrey in March 2012 after meeting him at a Guns N’ Roses gig. But things didn’t go smoothly for the couple, and less than a year later they had split up. And it wasn’t an amicable breakup, with White accusing Carrey of giving her sexually transmitted diseases. The actor, however, refused any responsibility.
