Jim Carrey's ex-girlfriend Cathriona White has committed suicide, law enforcement sources told TMZ. The actor and his former partner are believed to have split last week.

TMZ reports that police were called to a Los Angeles residence on Monday night, having responded to a call. They found 28-year-old Cathriona, alongside a suicide note addressed to the Hollywood actor.

The American publication went on to say that Cathriona's two friends discovered her and that law enforcements believe she died from a drug overdose.

"Signing off Twitter, I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest," the Irish native posted a few days ago

Cathriona, who celebrated her birthday earlier this month, also wrote a worrying message on Twitter three days before her death. "Signing off Twitter, I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest. Love to yo all," she posted.

On the same day the Irish beauty shared a quote from poet W. B. Yeats alongside a photo of some flowers.

"Faeries, come take me out of this dull world, For I would ride with you upon the wind, Run on the top of the dishevelled tide, And dance upon the mountains like a flame. W.B. Yeats," she wrote.

The pair first met in 2012 but split after a few months

For her 28th birthday, the make-up artist looks to have received a beautiful bouquet of red roses. She shared a picture of her flowers on Instagram, in which a photo of herself and Jim can be seen.

Cathriona and the 53-year-old actor met in 2012 on a film set and dated for a few months before splitting. They rekindled their relationship in May of this year.

After their first break-up, Jim told The Irish Sun: "We had a lovely time together but no, we're no longer together. Cathriona is a lovely young woman. I have always been attracted to talent, so if someone is beautiful and talented, that's hard to resist."

Jim was previously married to former actress Melissa Womer and his Dumb and Dumber co-star Lauren Holly. The Bruce Almighty actor has a 28-year-old daughter Jane with his ex-wife Melissa.
