Why Jim Carrey and Cathriona White split, and the real reason she secretly married Mark Burton
I think keeping quiet and private about it when I want to scream from the rooftops is a decent thing to do. You know what I want, and it's nothing to do with money. I want you to apologise for it because you care enough to.
According to the report, Carrey had sent a text message to Ms White a day before her body was found asking where his painkillers had gone from under his sink. Signing off Twitter, I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest. Ms White's cause of death was given as "multiple drug effects" after a toxicology report discovered propranolol, zolpidem, oxycodone and oxymorphone in her system. The last activity on Ms White's phone was a three-minute FaceTime call with Carrey four days before she was found, the coroner said.

Her friend Dennis Bradshaw told investigators she was "happy and upbeat" but would get "really down" and her friends would not hear from her for a while. Ms White told Mr Bradshaw she was missing her family in Ireland and she was "madly in love with Jim" but their relationship was a "rollercoaster", he said.
Carrey was "reclusive" due to his celebrity status and Ms White would often stay at his home, Mr Bradshaw told investigators. Another friend, Jenny Burpee, said Carrey had first "unexpectedly" broken up with Ms White in and she had "not eaten or slept for a year afterwards". Ms Burpee said she believed Ms White had previously taken an overdose of pills around two years earlier.
Carrey carried the coffin at Ms White's funeral in the village of Cappawhite, Co Tipperary, in October as she was laid to rest beside her late father. The actor described Ms White's death as like being "hit with a lightning bolt".
