Last week, it was revealed that Jim Carrey‘s ex-girlfriend (of only a few days) Cathriona White had committed suicide. She was reported to have left a note behind in which she mentioned the couple’s breakup, and it was understood that she used a combination of prescription pills to end her life. Now, according to TMZ, the details of which pills she used have been revealed, as has another interesting fact: the medication was all prescribed by the same doctor to a name Jim Carrey uses as an alias.
We’re told Cathriona White had prescriptions for Ambien (sleep aid), Percocet (painkiller), and Propranolol (blood pressure/heart) next to the bed where she OD’d. All 3 meds were prescribed by the same doctor.
Law enforcement tells us they’ve confirmed the prescription was written for Jim Carrey using an alias. Fact is, lots of celebs use aliases for prescriptions for privacy reasons.
One source tells us a witness has said there’s reason to believe Cathriona may have taken the meds from Jim’s house, but that hasn’t been confirmed.
We’re told authorities would like to interview Jim.
Although authorities say White died of an overdose, they do not know which drugs killed her. Toxicology results should provide answers.
We’re also told 5 people showed up at White’s house and discovered the body. She called them saying she was distraught because Jim unexpectedly broke up with her on Sept. 24th. She was found 5 days later and left a suicide note addressed to Jim.
Really sad news – and sounds as if it was a very spur-of-the-moment decision rather than something she had been contemplating long-term (well, as far as we know).
There have been other reports that Carrey was open to another reconciliation between them (they first dated in 2012 before breaking up and then reuniting earlier this year), but that’s unsubstantiated.
