The Daily Mail today reported that Cathriona White had been married to a man named Mark Burton after the two met on the set of a web TV series.

Our sources tell us that the series was “The Online Gamer,” part of the “Reckless Tortuga” web channel, and that the show was largely made by young Scientologists, including Burton.

Cathriona — Cat to her friends — moved to California from Ireland in 2009. She then met a group of young Scientologists who got her to start taking courses at the Hollywood Celebrity Centre beginning in 2010 or 2011. Then, in 2012, she met comedian Jim Carrey and began dating him, but the relationship ended about five months later.

Also that year, Cat’s father died in Ireland, but she was unable to go to the funeral because, reportedly, she was in the US illegally. That year, 2012, Cathriona also worked on The Online Gamer and played a zombie. We caught a quick glimpse of her in a making-of video about the series…


Our sources tell us that after meeting on the set, Cat and Mark Burton got married. But they apparently kept very quiet about it, because after Cat was found dead on September 28, apparently at her own hand, some of her friends were stunned to hear that she had been married.

But our sources say they are sure: Cat met Mark Burton on the Reckless Tortuga set, and they were both Scientologists.

According to Clark County records, Mark Damian Burton and Cathriona Anne White were married on January 15, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Burton has reportedly told Cat’s family that he will release Cat’s remains to them for her burial in Ireland.

A little more than a year ago, Cat posted this photo of Burton, who is second from the left…


Here’s another photo of him posted by his Reckless Tortuga friends…


There is a Mark D. Burton in the Scientology completions database, but we have not yet confirmed if these records pertain to the Mark Burton that married Cat. There is a Mark Damian Burton listed in Los Angeles of about the correct age, but when we called him he denied that he was the person we were looking for. We will bring you more information when we get it.



We didn’t get a chance to include photos in our book, so we’ve posted them at a dedicated page. Reader Sookie put together a complete index and we’re hosting it here on the website. Copies of the paperback version of ‘The Unbreakable Miss Lovely’ are on sale at Amazon. The Kindle edition is also available, and shipping instantly.

    Insane Speculation Master X:
    CATHRIONA WHITE was on a baby watch/ Introspection Rundown just like Lisa Mcpherson. The Cameras were install by the church to help maintain this baby watch. Cat found some pill’s that Jim had left behind and decided to end it. /Only a crazy theory

    • B4you

      Except; You don’t go on a “date” while on Baby Watch?

      • MostEthicalPimp

        hmm, true. I thought there was something off with my theory

        • B4you

          We just have to wait until Tony give us the story Frame by Frame! Or where is Colombo when we need him?

          • Intergalactic Walrus

            Does “Law & Order” still do those “based on recent headlines” episodes? This one would be perfect for that.

          • MostEthicalPimp

            Half, the fun of Colombo is trying to guess. Okay, that makes me sound callous. Also, the baby watch might not have started when the cameras went up . Or they made an exception because you know Scientology and Celebs.

            • B4you

              The Frame where she took the pills from Jim? Think about that moment! She had to be at his place where he keeps the pill’s

      • MostEthicalPimp

        reference for that she went out after the security cams?

    • MostEthicalPimp

      Remember X is for the unknown and Speculation master X doesn’t even account for all the known variables he just speculates!

    • TonyOrtega

      Crazy is right.

  • B4you

    In case someone is wondering why $cientologist lies so much and how do they get away with it. The reference is “Fundamental of thoughts” or something like that. Here Ronnie, claims “a Lie is the lowest form of creation” and “for anything to persists, there has to be a Lie”. Now! someone could read the first one as; “A lie is the most basic form of creation” The second could be read as; “Everything that exists is a Lie” You see how he plays with your mind? Now! Later on you get hold of the [PR Series] PR as in Public Relation. There Ronnie, wrote; – “Don’t tel a lie! Make an acceptable truth!” This philosophy he handed down to his salespeople (REG) and everyone else who read this piece of *shit* This created an environment of a fake reality. You could never get a straight answer from a $cio NO! You always got what you wanted to hear, and every things was fine and dandy! Bullshit!!!

      I think every State Department spokesperson has read this.
