Jim Carrey

Calls Out Jenny McCarthy


6/6/2012 11:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

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.

What is he suppose to do, hang around until she finds a new man and then he's free to go? What happens when she breaks up with that guy? Are they both obligated to hang around her kid?

Yet another desperate-to-stay-relevant former C-list star who should be more concerned that her son finds out she posed nude for the world to see and basically vomited every obscene word on a daily basis, rather than try to exploit a man who isn't even the boy's father, for actually taking the time to be in a long-term relationship with her. Does she really feel she's THAT important that Jim Carrey should feel obligated to continue a relationship with a boy who isn't even his biological son? How about the boy's real father? How about NOT introducing your impressionable little boy to a revolving-door situation of men who come and go, simply because you need to receive constant validation that you're hot. What a hypocrite she is!! also love how she claims to have cured her formerly-autistic son and is against immunizations. All this women cries for is attention, nothing else. Shameful! Jim Carrey is owed an apology from her.

This is just sad. She is broke and for the last couple of years she has been doing all types of crazy stuff to get her name back out there. This is just another stunt and shame on her for draging her child into this. Hell I wouldn't put it past her trying to use the child to try to draw Carey back into a relationship to support them and is pissed and calling him out because he rebuffed her.

Jenny, you need to learn to keep your personal life to yourself.

A few years ago you went on about vaccinations causing autism which is flat out untrue and has been not only disproven, but the one study showing it has been shown to be an outright fraud.

I think the whole comment states she's never reached out to Jim personally she's had other people tell Carrey to go visit her kid. If you want him to see your kid that bad then stop playing telephone and do it yourself! Other than that he has no obligation to her kid.

How can she expect him to want to come around her when she basically bilked the majority of his fortune out of him under blackmail of writing a tell-all book about his sex life?

McCarthey made her choice, Carrey owes her nothing. She chose to move on, so be it. Actions have consequences. She's whining. She wants her cake and to eat it too. Carrey is doing the right thing for the boy's sake. Move on Jenny, tell the boy the truth.

Team Carrey! I love Jim and I think he was there for that child while they were in a relationship. He is NOT the Bio father so, why does she have any expectation that he'll be there for HER child when the relationship is Kaput? Jenny needs to grow up and take responsibility for the child she birthed. It's no one else's responsibility but, hers & the bio dad. Lost lots of respect for her over the publicity she's brought for HER PROBLEMS!!!! Definitely NOT mother of the year.

From what I understand, Jim Carrey is "bi-polar" and he has had to struggle with his "OWN" issues related to this disease. He didn't "MARRY" Jenny McCarthy or "LEGALLY ADOPT" her son but he was "generous" enough to give her a few million dollars when their relationship ended. Somehow, I suspect "SHE" misses Jim Carrey MUCH MORE THAN EVAN!!! As the saying goes, "YOU DON'T MISS YOUR WATER UNTIL THE WELL IS DRY"!!! In spite of their problems, he was probably a "PRETTY COOL" guy to be around when his "mood swings" were in check!!! She "OPTED OUT" of their relationship and should respect Jim Carrey's decisions "TO SPEND HIS TIME AS HE DEEMS FIT"!!! Raising a "DISABLED" child "ALONE" can be difficult but it's up to Jenny McCarthy and his "LEGAL" father to support him in all aspects related to his "OVERALL WELL-BEING"!!! Jim Carrey has obviously "MOVED ON" AND SO SHOULD SHE!!!

BYTCH PLEASE! First of all, Jenny broke up with JIm McCarey and said he was boring and she wanted a real man -- this after he loved her AND her austistic son, which honestly would have driven most men away. WHY DOES HE OWE HER ANYTHING??? He wanted to give her a life and a family. She wants to turn him down but expects him to care about her special needs son???? Why should he? It's not his son!! Where's the boy's father, you whore. Look, when you find a good man who's willing to take time with a special child, treat him right. I'm not impressed with this woman.

I can understand each side of this story. Jenny hurts because her son misses Jim. Him and her son had a special relationship & it hurts her as a mom.

When Jenny finds a new love in her life, it will allow the child to get close & bond. Which would not be possibly if Jim were still seeing her son. I think it hurts Jim not seeing Jenny's son, but it's for the best for future bonding of new male figure in his life.

But, she told everyone that his autism was cured.

But, why would she want Jim Carrey around her son? He cheated on her. It sounds like she's just trying to get him back by publicly making him feel guilty and hoping the public scorns him for not keeping in touch with her son. She's still bitter....which tells me that Brian Urlacher isn't floating her boat.

What happens when Jenny hooks up with a new man? Does she think the new boyfriend will want Jim coming around to visit? I highly doubt it! Will the new boyfriend be expected to keep in touch with her son after they break up, too? Will all of her ex-boyfriends get trashed on Howard Stern and in the media for not coming back to visit her son? Where does the cycle end? I feel bad the boy asks for Jim, but I don't think Jenny is being fair. Also, where is the biological dad?
