Earlier this week, Irish make-up artist and Jim Carrey’s on-again, off-again girlfriend Cathriona White was found dead of apparent suicide. Now, TMZ reports, law enforcement say White was found with three empty pill bottles—all prescribed to Jim Carrey (under an alias).
Reportedly, there is “reason to believe” that White may have taken the medications from Carrey’s house.
On The Underground Bunker, former editor-in-chief of The Village Voice and Scientology expert Tony Ortega claims that, according to two of her friends, White had been undergoing the controversial church’s “Survival Rundown” (SRD) course in the months before her death:
The Survival Rundown itself has been around for a long time, at least since the late 1970s. But Shelton explained to us that a new version of the SRD is being pushed now by Scientology leader David Miscavige, with alterations to the exercises that L. Ron Hubbard originally designed, and recent reports from inside the church contained troubling descriptions of how the SRD was affecting subjects. “You can end up with people going into semi-hypnotic trances and all sorts of other nonsense which I think is psychologically damaging,” [Chris Shelton, a former member of Scientology’s Sea Org] told us. “So what you have here is Miscavige altering the technology to ensure it is done in the worst possible way to the worst possible result on every single person. He is making sure that almost everyone who runs these Objective Processes are going to be on them for hundreds and hundreds of hours and that they are very likely going to be a bit insane when they are done with them.”
Our sources say that Cathriona had not finished the SRD, and had stalled on it in the last six months. They also say they were stunned to learn that she had killed herself.
