The identity of Cathriona White's husband has been revealed. The Irish beauty, the late ex-girlfriend of Jim Carrey, was married to LA cameraman Mark Burton at the time of her death, but was reportedly due to start divorce proceedings in December.
Cathriona passed away at her home in LA on 28 September, just four days after her relationship with the Hollywood actor ended.
According to The Times, the make-up artist and her estranged husband Mark met while working on an online comedy series. It is not known how long the pair were married for or when they separated.

The Los Angeles coroner's office revealed that Mark was listed as Cathriona's next of kin and he now has the right to decide what happens to his ex-partner's assets and personal belongings.
"I understand that she and Mr Burton were going to divorce but they were still officially married at the time of her death so he is her official next-of-kin. However, he can cede his right to her possessions to her family if he wishes," Ed Winter, the assistant chief of the Los Angeles coroner's office, said.
He also said that not many of Cathriona's friends knew she was married.

An autopsy was completed on Sunday but the findings won't be revealed for another eight to ten weeks after further testing is done.
Mark has reportedly been communicating with Cathriona's family to make arrangements for her body to be flown back to her native Ireland. Cathriona's relatives including her sister were spotted arriving in LA last week.
Four prescription medicines were found at the time of Cathriona's death, although none were in her name. A source confirmed to People that some of the pills belonged to 53-year-old Jim, and had been prescribed to him under one of his alias names.
"(Cathriona) took them from his house," the insider said. "He had no idea. He wasn't actively using them and therefore he had no idea they were even missing. There is no criminal investigation on him and he has already spoken to the authorities."
"She was a truly kind and delicate Irish flower," wrote Jim Carrey in a statement
After news broke that his ex-girlfriend had died of an apparent suicide, Jim released a statement saying he was "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," he said.
