Well, it looks like at least one part of this ongoing drama is no more.
Now, though, sources tell

News broke on Monday that Jim Carrey's on-and-off girlfriend, Cathriona White, took her own life in an apparent drug overdose. The 53-year-old actor, who was reportedly mentioned in the suicide note, released a statement of grief following the tragic news.
Now, new details have surfaced surrounding Cat's personal life leading up to her death.
According to prominent journalist Tony Ortega, the Irish beauty was involved in the Church of Scientology and taking classes at the church's Hollywood Celebrity Centre in recent months.
White posted a photo of her and her Scientology "twin" actor Travis Case while the two completed the Purif's sauna regime as part of the Purification Rundown. This person is assigned by the church to offer support for the duration of the program:

Cat was reportedly was currently enrolled in the Survival Rundown course, which can require hundreds of hours — but things had come to a halt as of late. Ortega added:
"I don't know if that meant she had trouble with it or she decided to take a break."
So how did she get involved? Ortega claimed that she was introduced through friends of Beck, an open Scientologist, several years ago despite Carrey's open disapproval of the church:
"They encouraged her to come over to the United States to take classes, so she came to Los Angeles and started getting involved."
A source close to White's family is shocked with the news of Cat's association with the organization:
"I don't think her family had any idea she was mixed up in anything like that. Cathriona was very health conscious – she did yoga and looked after herself."
So, so sad! Our thoughts continue to be with those affected by her tragic death.
