According to TMZ, police officers were called to Cathriona's home in Los Angeles on Monday night, when two friends called to check on her. Her cause of death is believed to be suicide.
Ed Winter, from the L.A. Country Coroner’s Office tells TheWrap: "Cathriona White was found deceased in her residence and pronounced at 8:40 p.m. last night... It was reported as a possible overdose."
Although initial reports listed her age as 28, officers have since confirmed to HuffPost that she was aged 30 when she died.
Cathriona trained as a beauty therapist in her home country of Ireland before moving to Los Angeles to try her hand at Hollywood in 2009, working both behind the scenes and dabbling with acting as well.
She first dated Jim in 2012, before splitting up after a few months. They are believed to have reunited in May of this year, eventually splitting up earlier this month.
Last year, he publicly praised the beautiful brunette in an interview, saying: "Cathriona is a lovely young woman. I have always been attracted to talent, so if someone is beautiful and talented, that’s hard to resist."
