As Radar reported, Carrey’s ex, Cathriona White, committed suicide by overdose at age 30 in her Sherman Oaks home in September 2015.

After White’s suicide, Carey continued to deny the claims, insisting he was “blinded by affection” and the victim of extortion. Carrey had been fighting the legal battle for years, and his lawyer claimed White forged the medical documents in order to make it seem like the actor had given her herpes.
