Cathriona White 'was married at time of death'
Jim Carrey's on-off girlfriend Cathriona White was reportedly married when her body was tragically found after a suspected suicide last week (ends02Oct15).
An official working for the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner tells The Hollywood Reporter her body will be released to her husband for repatriation to her native Ireland.
Mask actor Jim started dating the make-up-artist-and-photographer in 2012, but they split shortly after. They reunited in May (15) and it's believed a suicide note found by her body referenced a breakup on September 24, four days before her death.
"We have a husband as next of kin. We’re not releasing any more information on next of kin, but we do have her as married," the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner insider said.
According to a source close to Jim, the Hollywood star was under the impression Cathriona, 28, had separated from her husband by the time they got together.
"As far as Jim was concerned, Cat was separated from her husband and was going to start divorce proceedings in December," the friend explained.
The identity of White’s husband and details of their marriage have not been revealed.
Meanwhile, the Medical Examiner has concluded the autopsy on White and the results have been sent off for a toxicology analysis. Results are expected in about two months.
White’s body was discovered by friends visiting the make-up artist's rented Sherman Oaks, California, home.
Officials who arrived at the scene found four different kinds of powerful medication close to her body.
Jim, 53, was quick to share his devastation over the loss in a statement to Extra.
He said: “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.”
