Sadly, Cathriona White’s tragic suicide was not the first time she attempted to kill herself. Jim Carrey’s girlfriend had also tried to end her life back in 2012, a new report claims. Plus, shocking new details about what may have led her down this sad path make the whole story even more heartbreaking.
New information about Cathriona White’s life is continuing to slowly emerge…and it’s providing a look into what led her to commit suicide by swallowing an excess of prescription pills. The 30-year-old actually went through a really tough time back in 2012, and had allegedly tried to end her life back then. And you’ll never believe what reportedly sent her over the edge this time around.
Jim Carrey’s girlfriend lost her father in 2012 and the news sent her into a major downward spiral, according to a new report. The death led Cathriona to attempt suicide for the first time, TMZ claims. Sadly, when she actually went through with it in Sept. 2015, it was on the same day as the 3-year anniversary of her dad’s passing.
But the date might not be the only reason behind Cathriona taking this tragic route. Her birthday was actually just days before she took her own life, and she allegedly received a mean note from her biological mother on that day, in which she called her a “failure.” It was also reported that Jim and Cathriona broke up on Sept. 24, so overall, it was a really tough time for the 30-year-old.
Interestingly, Cathriona was actually married at the time of her death — she had a “husband” who was listed as her “next of kin,” but she was reportedly planning to file for divorce in the coming months.
But with all that was going wrong with her life, Cathriona did appear to have some support system, from the mother who raised her, Brigid White. “My Cathriona is dead. Can you believe it? What am I going to do? What am I going to do?” the heartbroken Brigid reportedly told friends after Cat’s death. Jim also released a somber and heartfelt statement when he heard the tragic news.
Our thoughts remain with Jim, along with Cathriona’s family, during this difficult time.
