Jim Carrey's Scientologist girlfriend Cathriona White's suicide

Discussion in 'Media' started by The Wrong Guy, Sep 30, 2015.

    Actor Jim Carrey and his girlfriend Cathriona White were spotted in New York earlier this year after the couple apparently started dating again following a breakup. Now, news organizations are scrambling for more information about their relationship after the 30-year-old woman killed herself this week.

    People magazine and other publications are reporting that Cathriona was an Irish citizen, had first started dating Carrey in 2012, worked as a make-up artist in the fashion industry, and was pronounced dead on Monday night.

    But two of her friends tell the Underground Bunker what the rest of the media hasn’t reported: That Cathriona (pronounced “Katrina”) was a Scientologist who took classes at the Hollywood Celebrity Centre, and was currently working on her “objectives” in the “Survival Rundown.”

    Her friends tell us that Cathriona originally got involved in Scientology about four to five years ago through members of musician Beck’s circle of friends. They encouraged her to move to the US from Ireland and take Scientology courses.

    When Jim Carrey met her and they began dating in March 2012, her friends say, Carrey was aware that “Cat” was a Scientologist.


    After they began dating in 2012, Carrey and White reportedly soon broke up, but then they were spotted earlier this year in New York after they began seeing each other again.

    Cathriona’s friends say that they were concerned about Cat dating Carrey again, but they were assured by Scientologists they knew that Cat was emotionally prepared for the challenge of dating Carrey because, they said, “She had just finished the Purif and was doing her objectives.”

    “Purif” is short for the “Purification Rundown,” a process invented by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard that he claimed could “detoxify” the body through an intense regimen of daily sauna sessions and massive doses of the vitamin niacin.

    The “objectives” are exercises that in recent years have been made part of a newer course called the “Survival Rundown” which Scientology leader David Miscavige has made a prime requisite of Scientologists, both the new and the experienced. The “SRD” is being pushed to all Scientologists, even those who may have long ago previously done their “objectives” on their way up the Bridge to Total Freedom.

    “An example of a command in an objective process would be ‘Look at that wall’ or ‘Walk over to that wall,'” says Chris Shelton, a former member of Scientology’s Sea Org who talked to us about the Survival Rundown for an article in May.


    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.

    “I am shocked and deeply saddened by the passing of my sweet Cathriona,” Carrey said in a statement. He called White “a truly kind and delicate Irish flower, too sensitive for this soil, to whom loving and being loved was all that sparkled.”

    We requested a comment about Cathriona’s involvement in Scientology with the church’s spokeswoman, Karin Pouw, and we’ll let you know if she gets back to us.

    Mother of Jim Carrey's ex-girlfriend, Cathriona White, reveals she died in suspected suicide

    Daily Mail Online

    Los Angeles deputy chief coroner Ed Winter said a drug overdose was suspected because several pills were found near White's body.

    The death is believed to be a suicide but an official ruling has not yet been made.

    Jim Carrey is an SP, even if he wasn't formally declared, since he was once a client of the Scientology corporation, then quit, then mocked the cult in this interview.

    This means that Cathriona was a "Potential Trouble Source". It's not a big stretch to imagine that Miscavige would force her to either "disconnect" from Carrey, or "handle" him, i.e. make sure that he never said anything negative about the cult to anyone, or have herself be declared an "SP" and lose any friends or family that were in the cult, including Beck and his fellow homo novis. She would also be denied any further scientology courses and auditing which she may have believed to be necessary to her survival.

    It seems possible that she chose a different way out. She would not have been the first to do so.

    I wonder if someone in the cult who knows what happened to Cathriona will come forward a few years from now when they themselves escape.

    Another one. yikes
    How many more will there be?
    The government doesn't give a rats ass about Scientology, David Miscavige, the Sea Org or the IRS agreement, never mind all the documented crimes, personal accounts, affidavits and abuses that the COS is guilty of.
    I used to be hopeful that at some point the government would jump in and start a real investigation after all the books and documentaries, but now I have lost hope of them ever doing anything. Sorry.
    It's been too many years, too many deaths, too much of turning a blind eye and ears.
    I think continued exposure has to come from the exs and others who really give a damn. More lawsuits have to be filed.
    Otherwise there is no sense of holding your breath for the government to intervene at all.

    They shut down restaurants for not properly storing chicken, but Narconon is still alive and well and the midget is still rolling in the clam dough.
    What will it take?
    Whatever it is, I hope I get to see it in my life time.

    Jim Carrey's Girlfriend Used Scientology To Treat Depression. Yeah... | The Superficial

    Imagine being so depressed you feel that taking your own life is the only way to ever stop your pain and mental anguish. Now imagine yourself working through the shame and humiliation of admitting to someone you trust that you feel that low about yourself only for them to turn around and tell you that the real answer is not psychotherapy or drugs, but rather the performing of repetitive, mundane tasks for hundreds of hours as a step towards ridding your body of its alien invaders. That’s how Scientology was helping Jim Carrey’s girlfriend, Cathriona White, make her way across the Bridge To Total Freedom when she killed herself. Via The Underground Bunker:

    But two of her friends tell the Underground Bunker what the rest of the media hasn’t reported: That Cathriona (pronounced “Katrina”) was a Scientologist who took classes at the Hollywood Celebrity Centre, and was currently working on her “objectives” in the “Survival Rundown.”

    First of all, when one of the students of your “Survival Rundown” class commits suicide, it’s a little like finding out your Fire Academy is actually training arsonists. And second, just what exactly goes on in these fucking classes anyway?


    Oh good, so a mentally troubled person is literally bored to further insanity so Scientology can collect whatever insane amount of money they charge for this horseshit. And look, I know people sign up for these classes as a fully-aware adults, but it’s my firm opinion that the second you instruct people to do something this ridiculous and they actually commit to it, you’re complicit in the manipulation of the mentally ill. Period. And I’m not saying that Scientology caused Cathriona White to kill herself, but I am saying what they did is like promising a child they can have dessert if they eat their dinner, but when they finish that last piece of broccoli, you tell them you had to spend all the cake money on covering up those times masseurs jacked off John Travolta. Feel free to use that one for the analogy section on this year’s SAT, whoever runs that thing. That one’s all yours.

    There are now more than 1,400 comments below this article. Here are three that stood out:

    Aaron Smith-Levin

    To those still inside the bubble of the Church of Scientology, the only thing they will take away from this event is that Jim Carrey truly is a suppressive person, as evidenced by his public ridicule of Dianetics and Scientology in the past. This incident will reinforce the idea that suppressive people are truly 1.1 and that Jim was only pretending to be supportive of Cathriona's involvement in Scientology, but was actually covertly suppressing her and she went PTS to him.

    Believe me, this is exactly what people will believe and what they will be told to believe.

    Chris Shelton

    If they are told anything at all, this is exactly the line they will receive. Scientology can never be wrong and nothing that anyone in the organization does or its procedures can ever be blamed for any of its myriad ill effects. Scientology's modus operandi is Blame the Victim. They can be counted on to do this 100% of the time.

    Aaron Smith-Levin

    Jim Carrey is -- in the eyes of those still in the bubble -- one of the WORST kinds of SPs, because he has literally been "in the hands of the psychs". It's well known that Jim has suffered from depression and been on anti-depressants. Scientologists will even be told that Jim Carrey was PDH'd by the psychs to "do what he's doing".

    PDH = Pain Drug Hypnosis. This is LRH's description of how people are given commands while under a trance brought about by drugs or hypnosis (pain may or may not be applied as well), and then these people carry out these commands later unknowingly.

    Scientologists are absolutely lead to believe that the psychs routinely do this to patients undergoing psychoanalysis, and that these people are then sent into Orgs to cause trouble.

    No bullshit.

    Cathriona White’s Scientology ‘twin’ on grueling courses was an actor named Travis Case

    By Tony Ortega, The Underground Bunker, October 1, 2015

    Yesterday we broke the news that Cathriona White, Jim Carrey’s on-again, off-again girlfriend who killed herself Monday, had been taking Scientology courses for four or five years. Her friends told us that when she began dating Carrey again earlier this year, she had recently finished the “Purification Rundown” course at the Hollywood Celebrity Centre, and had started on the “Survival Rundown,” an intense course that she reportedly had trouble with.

    Now, we have a little more information about who she was doing those courses with, a small-time actor and professional poker player named Travis Case. She identifies Case as her “twin” in Instagram photos, and even posted a photograph of the two of them going through the Purification Rundown’s sauna regimen.

    In some Scientology courses, members are paired with a “twin” to go through the exercises together.

    It was one of our eagle-eyed readers, Pete Griffiths in Ireland, who spotted tell-tale images and hashtags that Cathriona posted to her Instagram account.


    Case has been a Scientologist since at least 1998, he’s an aspiring actor who has worked as Ashton Kutcher’s stand-in on Three and a Half Men, and at his Instagram account he announced this summer that he was becoming a professional poker player.


    We’re trying to reach Mr. Case today. We’d like to ask him about doing the Purification Rundown with Cat, and we’d like to know if he was also “twinned” with her on the Survival Rundown, a lengthy and intense course of “objective processes” that is creating problems for some Scientologists.

    In May, we wrote a story about the Survival Rundown with help from Chris Shelton, a former Sea Org executive. He told us that he’s heard troubling things about how the length of the Survival Rundown and its “objectives” exercises is causing bewildering effects for its participants.

    “There is no question that these are psychologically damaging procedures which were put together by L. Ron Hubbard for at least two obvious reasons,” Shelton says. “One, to get his followers into a state where they are willing to be controlled by Scientology and give over their right to free will and independent thought; two, to induce a kind of overwhelming hypnotic state which has to be ‘run out’ during the course of the Objectives process, convincing a person that he has somehow shed past trauma, stress and ‘unconscious states,’ when in fact the Objectives themselves are what produce that stress, trauma and unconsciousness. Every single Objective process follows this pattern.”

    Cathriona reportedly stalled during her pursuit of the “objectives” and the Survival Rundown several months before she killed herself. Had she been twinned with Case on that course? We’d like to ask him that question.

    Jim Carrey's tragic ex 'kept involvement with Scientology a secret from her family - and never hinted at suicide'
    • Cathriona White, 28, was a member of Scientology cult, it was revealed
    • But local priest in her hometown in Ireland said her family had no idea
    • He added that there was no hint of her being suicidal or anything wrong
    • Spoke of how community in Cappawhite, Co. Tipperary, is devastated
    The Scientologist ex-girlfriend of Jim Carrey who killed herself after splitting with the star kept her involvement with the cult secret from her family and never mentioned feeling suicidal, according to her local priest.



    The Church of Scientology allegedly has a long-standing goal of recruiting as many celebrities as it can to the cause - often targeting the super-famous through those who are close to them.'

    Famous members of the cult, such as Tom Cruise and Juliette Lewis, are seen as an excellent advertisement for the church, which offers them select services and private church centers in a bid to lure in other A-listers in their social circle.'

    One defector from the church revealed how high-ranking church members spent time trying to bring lapsed celebrities back into the fold, and win over their family members.

    In an article for Salon, Jenna Miscavige Hill claimed Scientology officials pondered how to tempt Tom Cruise into more intense involvement with the church by targeting his then-wife Nicole Kidman.

    Miscavige Hill, the niece of church boss David Miscavige, said he viewed Kidman, a Scientology sceptic, as a 'potential trouble source' and a 'problem they were trying to solve'.

    There was also a less aggressive side to the strategy, focused on the Celebrity Centers. Miscavige Hill claimed celebrities including Brad Pitt and Bono - who are not Scientologists - were nonetheless seen around the centers after being asked there by friends who were involved.


    The Church of Scientology did not respond to a request for comment.

    I will bet that she was heavily pressured (called "product officering) by osabots to recruit Jim Carey into the cult.
    And after the breakup, she was treated like a "downstat" and went into a severe depression.
    OSA definitely has a file on Jim Carrey now from reports that White wrote on him and anything that her osa handler debriefed from her.
    Too bad that Ronbots cannot have normal relationships with other people and it's all about getting your stats up.

    Jim Carrey's Girlfriend Cathriona White -- Don't Pin Her Suicide on the Church, Scientology Says | TMZ

    The Church of Scientology is firing back at accusations it had anything to do with Jim Carrey's girlfriend killing herself -- saying no one blames the Bible when a Christian commits suicide.

    Cathriona White was reportedly very active in the Church of Scientology, taking part in a program called the "Purification Rundown", a controversial drug and alcohol detox program combining exercise, medication, and sauna sessions.

    But a Scientology spokeswoman tells TMZ any reports connecting White's death to the church are a "sad and reprehensible" way to exploit the tragedy of her death. She also calls it "outright bigotry" because it's "like saying a person who previously studied the Bible committed suicide."

    Law enforcement sources tell us investigators will question church officials about Cathriona's involvement in the detox, but at this point they strongly believe her death had nothing to do with Scientology.

    Scientology’s statement about Cathriona White is hilarious

    By Tony Ortega

    “A Scientology spokesperson” (Hi, Karin!) told Page Six and E!Online that we were somehow in the wrong for reporting the news that before she took her own life, Cathriona White — the on-again, off-again girlfriend of comedian Jim Carrey — had been a Scientologist.

    “Saying that somebody was studying Scientology in the past and connecting that to a suicide is like saying a person who had previously studied the Bible committed suicide. It is sad and reprehensible that a paid anti-Scientologist like Tony Ortega is exploiting this terrible tragedy involving a young woman: It’s a sign of outright bigotry.”

    Well, thanks for confirming that Cat White was a Scientologist, Karin. The rest is just noise, of course.

    Cathriona White Participated In Grueling Scientology Course Months Prior To Suicide: Sent Her Over The Edge Mentally? | Celeb Dirty Laundry

    Last two paragraphs:

    The church historically has been defensive when an outsider questions their practices or how they might affect someone’s health. It is common knowledge that Scientologists don’t take medication for mental illness and instead rely on vitamins and training. There are photos of Cathriona White receiving vitamins through an intravenous drip posted to her Instagram just six weeks prior to her death.

    Cathriona White is thought to have died from a drug overdose and a suicide note addressed to Jim Carrey was found near her body. The actual cause of death won’t be uncovered until after the autopsy is completed.

    Scientology: 'Can Everyone Shut Up About Cathriona White? K Thanx!' | The Superficial

    Last paragraph:

    If someone committed suicide because they followed Christian “therapy” that told them to just to pray their depression away, then yes, you’re goddamn right people would be saying, “Hey, I think this stupid Christian shit caused it.” In this case, it happens to be Scientology’s turn to eschew medical research and science in favor of magic. And not just any magic, but space magic that makes Tom Cruise fly, which in fairness, is as equally as ridiculous as a bearded white guy in the sky watching to see who masturbates or touches whose sex parts with what. So if it’s “outright bigotry” to say all of that, then I must be Donald Trump and Paula Deen’s fuck-baby. You caught me.

    Jim Carrey Doing ''Whatever He Can to Help'' Cathriona White's Family After Apparent Suicide | E! Online

    Jim Carrey is making sure to help his late girlfriend Cathriona White's family after suffering such a great loss. E! News learns that the actor has been in close touch with White's kin and is doing whatever he can to help them through this extremely hard time. "Jim has offered any kind of financial assistance he can provide for Cat's family," a source close to the star tells E! News.

    "He is paying for her body to be flown back to Ireland and is putting up her family at a hotel in Los Angeles. He is shocked and devastated. He loved her very much. He wants to do whatever he can to help them through this difficult time."


    The insider also spoke on the recent speculation surrounding whether or not White was practicing Scientology leading up to her apparent suicide, which was brought to the forefront after Scientology journalist Tony Ortega published an article claiming that she was a member prior to her death.

    And while the source didn't touch on White's practice, they did note that her connection with the church caused some tension in her relationship with Carrey.

    "She was very involved and Jim wasn't so sure about the whole thing," the source tells us, and adds that Cathriona "really wanted to marry Jim. It was a point of contention between them. He wasn't sure if he wanted to get married and the role that Scientology was playing in her life."

    Authorities Found Rx Pills In Girlfriend's House Under Carrey Alias

    The TMZ story doesn't say when she called those people, just that she was found five days after the breakup on Monday night. It also doesn't say the estimated time-of-death. It doesn't even say that they were friends.

    Five people were worried about her enough, and organized, to show up at her place in a group, but not one of them was worried enough to call 911 for a health and welfare check by police after talking to her. Since her family is in Ireland, I wonder what grounds they used to gain entrance; perhaps they were just pushy types used to people not answering the phone or door when they arrive?

    If it was a team sent from the Celebrity Centre to browbeat her back on-lines and into services, that'll be a big Hill 10 Situation if that gets out. (Speculation so far, of course.)
