Cathriona White was married to another man at the time of her death, PEOPLE can confirm.

“She was separated and she was going to start divorce proceeding in December,” a source tells PEOPLE.

The on-off girlfriend of Jim Carrey – who died of an apparent suicide last week – had a husband who was listed as her next of kin, a Medical Examiner’s official told The Hollywood Reporter on Monday.

The news comes after authorities confirmed to PEOPLE that four prescription medications were found at the time of White’s death.

White was pronounced dead in her Los Angeles home on Sept. 28, and Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter said that none of the prescriptions were in White’s name. “There were four prescriptions: Ambien, Percocet, Propranolol and Zofran [they] were not [written] in her name.” he revealed.

A source confirms to PEOPLE that some of the pills belonged to Carrey and had been prescribed under an alias. “[Cathriona] took them from his house. He had no idea. He wasn’t actively using them and therefore had no idea they were even missing.”

The source adds: “There is no criminal investigation on him and he has already spoken to authorities.”

Winter had also previously confirmed to PEOPLE that several letters were found at the scene, one of which was addressed to Carrey.

Carrey who dated the 30-year-old on and off for three years after they first met in 2012 on a movie set has been helping White’s family since they arrived in Los Angeles to make arrangements to bring her body back to Ireland.
