Earlier this week, Jenny McCarthy went on The Howard Stern Show and wound up making some pretty startling accusations about her ex-boyfriend Jim Carrey. The former Singled Out host claimed the actor refuses to see her son even though the boy asks about him weekly and has been forced to go to therapy to deal with his sadness. McCarthy and Carrey were together for five years, but she reportedly broke it off in 2010, leaving her son without any connection to the Dumb & Dumber star.
Not surprisingly, McCarthy’s allegations ripped around the Internet yesterday, but they haven’t played too well with Carrey. He spoke to TMZ today and told the outlet he’s upset no one is considering Evan’s privacy. You can take a look at his quote below…
That statement sounds like he’s saying he doesn’t see the poor kid because he’s decided it’ll ultimately harm him. Obviously, he didn’t go on record with that viewpoint, but reading between the lines, that seems like what he’s inferring. Detachment might be a painful process, but in the long run, it probably is better for Carrey to either fully be in his life or not be in his life at all. Having lunch once every six months doesn’t really help anyone.
Regardless of what’s really going on, there’s not any point in discussing this matter publicly. McCarthy’s son, who has been diagnosed with autism, probably wouldn’t want the whole world knowing his problems; so, hopefully, everyone can move on without causing further harm.
