Jim Carrey's on/off girlfriend Cathriona White was married at time of death

The 30-year-old make-up artist was found dead of an apparent suicide at her rented home in Sherman Oaks, California, on September 28 and the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner’s office has confirmed that her body will be released to her husband.

An official told The Hollywood Reporter: "She had a husband, 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."

A source close to Jim, 53, confirmed that Cathriona was married but separated and said that she was planning to file for divorce in December.

The insider explained: "There is no way that Jim would have taken her out to public places if he thought she was married. As far as Jim was concerned, Cat was separated from her husband and was going to start divorce proceedings in December. When people are separated, they date or do whatever they need to do."

Cathriona's body is expected to be repatriated to her native Ireland. She was from Cappawhite in Co Tipperary.

The LA County Coroner's office also revealed that Cathriona left several suicide notes and four different kinds of medication, including Ambien, Percocet, Zofran and Propranolol, were found at the

scene.

While some of the medication allegedly belonged to Jim, an insider claimed Cathriona took the pills from his home without his knowledge.

The source said: "They were his medications but unbeknownst to him she took the pills. He had no idea. He didn't even know they were gone for a few days."
