(Newser) – Jim Carrey's ex-girlfriend was found dead of an apparent suicide last week with three pill bottles next to her, and law enforcement sources tell TMZ the pills were prescribed to an alias used by Carrey. They were for Ambien, Percocet, and Propranolol—a sleep aid, a painkiller, and a blood pressure/heart medication—and a source says it appears Cathriona White may have taken them from Carrey's home. Authorities, who haven't determined which drugs caused White's overdose, want to interview Carrey, according to TMZ.

As for the reasons behind her suicide, TMZ's sources say White had called five people (all of whom arrived at her home to discover the body) to say she was upset that Carrey had broken up with her unexpectedly the week prior. White was also a Scientologist, and on The Underground Bunker, there's a report that she had just finished a "Purification Rundown" involving detoxification via sauna sessions and big doses of niacin, and was in the midst of the "Survival Rundown," a bizarre-sounding process that a source says leaves people "a bit insane." But a Scientology spokesperson tells TMZ it's "outright bigotry" to assume her death had anything to do with the church. (Read more Jim Carrey stories.)
