Since the suicide of Jim Carrey's ex-girlfriend, Irish-born make up artist and Scientologist Cathriona White was reported last week, conjectures surrounding her death have gone rife while new revelations about the incident continue to pop up almost daily.
Now the latest news indicates that White had attempted suicide at least once before and that both incidents seem to point at issues involving her parents, the Daily Mail reports.
Apparently police have discovered that White already had a previous suicide attempt back in 2012 when her father Pat died after succumbing to brain cancer. Fast forward to 2015: This time White managed to be successful and killed herself on the third anniversary of her father's death.
The Daily Mail reports that less than 10 days before successfully taking her life, White had received a discouraging message from her mother, Brigid Sweetman, who had ruthlessly called her daughter "a failure." It was reported that White received the message on her 30th birthday.
Previously an unknown, White became a byword when news of her death splashed the front pages of tabloids around the world. Her high-profile relationship with Hollywood A-Lister Carrey and her connections with Scientology, a group that has had its own fill of scandalous incidents in the past, have only added fodder to the gossip mill surrounding her death.
On top of this, White's existing marriage to LA cameraman Mark Burton also surfaced, with reports saying she was still married at the time of her relationship to the Hollywood star.
Meanwhile, People reports that the medical examiner in charge of White's remains have not officially noted that the cause of death is suicide. 'It came in as a suicide, but we're not noting it as such yet until we can confirm what was in her system,' Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter also admits that four prescription pill bottles were found near White at the time of her death. None of these was under White's name, but the three bottles were under a name that Carrey used as an alias.
Winter also reveals that several suicide notes were found at the scene, including one addressed to Carrey.
