Jim Carrey Attends Funeral of Late Girlfriend Cathriona White, Carries Coffin
Jim Carrey attended the funeral of his late girlfriend Cathriona White in Ireland on Saturday morning.
The actor was seen carrying White's coffin to Our Lady of Fatima Church, in her home village of Cappawhite, Co Tipperary, the Associated Press reported. He helped walk the casket from the funeral service to the burial grounds of Cappawhite Cemetery where White was buried next to her father, Pat, NY Daily News reported. Carrey was bedecked in all black and appeared somber while holding the coffin with numerous other men.
White, a 30-year-old make-up artist, was found dead on Sept. 28 at a residence in Sherman Oaks and died of suspected suicide. According to the L.A. County Coroner's office, White was found along with several suicide notes and four different kinds of powerful medication, including Ambien, Percocet, Zofran and Propranolol.
An L.A. County Medical Examiner's office official said that her body would be released to her husband. "She had a husband, we have a husband as next of kin," said the Medical Examiner’s official, "We’re not releasing any more information on next of kin, but we do have her as married."
Carrey issued a statement through his publicist to The Hollywood Reporter on Sept. 29: "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."
The actor posted a photo of him and White to Twitter on Saturday in her remembrance with the caption, "Love cannot be lost."
