Jim Carrey

Calls Out Jenny McCarthy

For TRASHING Him

Jim Carrey
has lashed out at his former GF Jenny McCarthy for ragging on him for not keeping a relationship with her autistic son.

Carrey says, "I will always do what I believe is in the best interest of Evan's well being. It's unfortunate that Evan's privacy is not being considered.  I love Evan very much and will miss him always."

Jenny went after Carrey on Howard Stern's show, saying, "I've tried to ask [Jim] numerous times [to see Evan], because my son still asks." Jenny says Jim -- who was in a 5-year relationship with her -- refuses to see the boy.

But a source close to Jim tells us, Jenny has NEVER personally contacted him about seeing her son.

As for Jenny's timing -- sources close to Jim think it's strangely coincidental Jenny is making these accusations right when her new dating show is premiering ... two years after she and Jim broke up.

It's pretty clear from Jim's statement that he acknowledges he doesn't see the boy, though he does not explain why. Obviously, it's possible Jim has been told it would be harmful to the boy if he comes in and out of his life, although we don't know why he's made that decision.

Jenny looks like one of Madam Tussauds wax figures in that pic. All shifty eyed and botox-smooth.

She has no class. Jim has to bear the fallout of banging and breaking up with someone like her.

Where is his real dad should he not be in his life after all he's his dad not Jim? Come on girl get a grip you had a good man and you let him go because why? You say it wasn't fun anymore???? Wake up this is the real world and in the real world its not always fun and games but when you truly love someone you work it out you don't just give up and run off with every tom dick and harry that comes along show yourself and Jim a little more respect than that..LET IT GO.....PS..Sorry Not Sorry...

It's not his kid. It's not his responsibility. When you break up with somebody you don't still hang around their kids. I guess the real question here is where the hell is the kid's father?

Hey, if you break up with your boyfriend you can't expect him to still be in your son's life, even if your son is autistic. It's not your ex's responsibility to help you raise your son. EX-boyfriend. EX.

So, where is Evan's real father and grandparents on that side? And her parents? That's possibly five people that she needs to be concerned with getting more involved with her child before she gets to an ex-boyfriend (not to mention uncles and aunts and cousins related by blood). Her timing is a little suspect. IMO, she's waaaaay out of line.

RIDICULOUS. She hasn't reached out to him personally but she can go on a ****ing radio show and make him seem like a deadbeat former stepdad? Keep personal business PERSONAL. And if it meant that much to you Jenny, you would call Carey yourself and talk to him about it.

Good for Jim! For a guy who makes his living acting like a clown he certainly has his head on straight - in the real world. Because of his depression problems he will fully understand how it feels to be unhappy. BUT he clearly read the manual that most parents of children on the autism spectrum are basically given (in words, not print). My son has Asperger Syndrome and my husband and I are working together to help our boy work his way through a confusing world. A lot of our friends with autistic children have divorced. Often the parent who wants nothing to do with the child is the one who is refusing to accept that part of their dna is the cause. The parent that keeps the child and fights for them is usually told that because of the very sensitive emotional nature of an autistic they CANNOT parade a series of partners through the child's life. Usually only when there is a marriage partner then they should be brought into the autistic child's life. An autistic cannot take the strain of the caregiver breaking up and going through partners. Jenny has made a massive mistake in blaming Jim. He made her son happy because he was a happy bright spot in his life and obviously understood him. For whatever their reasons they broke up but very smart of Jim to avoid them. He is doing this specifically to protect the boy, not ignore him. If and when Jenny and the new football guy break up then Evan is left ****tered again...if Jim is pulled into Jenny's relationship problems then he will go back into a depression as he watches her flounce around leaving him to be the caregiver and not be such a happy guy that needs to be happy with Evan. Jenny - who I thought was intelligent now seems to be playing and becoming a bimbo. Jim has done the absolutely correct thing to do to keep Evan's emotions on a healthy path. Jenny needs to grow up and realize she is probably in a mid-life crisis herself..she is certainly not using her brain to think..just her hormones. That is why Evan misses Jim - all autistics need steady rudders in their emotional worlds. Jim provided that for Evan but Jenny's hormones seemed to need more than Evan's future. Bad Jenny. Smart Jim. God Bless Evan.

I agree with GLYoung99....what if Jenny dates 10 or more guys AFTER Jim and they all develop a bond with her kid. Are they ALL supposed to hang around and take care of her kid after she dumps them and moves on to the next sucker? Jim handled this with class and she should stop using her son to garner publicity for herself and her new projects. What trash.
