'If I Could Hold Her Just Once Again, I Would Never Let Her Go': Mom of Jim Carrey's Late Girlfriend, Cathriona White - 2015-11-10
The mother of Jim Carrey's late girlfriend, Cathriona White, says she has been the victim of vicious personal attacks since her daughter's death, telling PEOPLE in an exclusive interview that she is "devastated" over negative reports about their relationship and stressed that "calling her a failure is never something I would ever have done."
Speaking publicly for the first time since White was found dead of an apparent suicide six weeks ago, Brigid Sweetman remembers a daughter whom she says "was loved, she was so loved and I know she knew that" - even as Sweetman has faced rumors blaming her for the tragedy.
"There's a story that has been published saying that I sent Cathriona an email on her birthday nine days before she died, calling her a failure," she says. "I don't know who would say such lies, but this is something that never, ever happened. I am devastated people would say this."
