They were seen together as recently as May with TMZ.com reporting the couple had an on-off relationship.

The Dumb and Dumber star, who met beauty therapist White in 2012, said a statement: "She was a truly kind and delicate Irish flower, too sensitive for this soil, to whom loving and being loved was all that sparkled."

Her last tweet said she was "signing off" from Twitter, adding: "I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest."
