Jim Carrey is understandably still grief stricken over the loss of Cathriona White, and news that the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office has determined that White’s death wasn’t accidental has only served to deepen the feelings of loss and grief that Carrey is feeling.
Early last week, the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office released a report on their investigation into Cathriona White’s death, confirming suspicions that White, who formerly dated comedian Jim Carrey and was reportedly devastated by the split, had intentionally overdosed on a variety of prescription drugs.
The determination that White had committed suicide was confirmed by notes she had left for Carrey in which she expressed her feelings of hopelessness, following their break-up, as well as laying out her final wishes as to what might be done with her possessions.
While the feelings expressed by Jim Carrey are certainly understandable, the coroner’s office reports that California state law requires them to release autopsy results as a matter of public record.
As more details come to light, one has to wonder why Jim Carrey and Cathriona White couldn’t make it work, considering how deeply they both seemed to care for one another.
Carrey and White dated for three years before calling it quits, and even after the split, friends close to Cathriona reported that the make-up artist would often become distant and despondent over the loss of her relationship with Jim, says Entertainment Weekly.
Cathriona may have felt her feelings were unrequited, but Mr. Carrey’s expressions of love and feelings of loss since White’s death seems to prove just the opposite was true.
Shortly after her Ireland funeral last October, Jim tweeted a silhouetted image of himself with White, captioning the photo with the words “Love cannot be lost” and the image of a rose.
Jim Carrey issued a previous statement, shortly after news of Cathriona’s death was released, and expressed his thoughts of White in that statement, which can attest to the deep feelings the comedian and actor still feels for Ms. White.
