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.

She should have thought of that BEFORE SHE SLEPT WITH HIM. I agree...2 years pass and now her new crappy show is airing and she needs the PR.

Jenny be ashamed of yourself for using your son.

Jim Carrey is not that kid's father. Why doesn't that tramp blame the kid's real dad for not visiting? Go pose for Playboy-

Like hell Jim doesn't have any responsibility. This is what is wrong with the world -- adults acting like children. He was a father figure for five years, then just disappears? Sorry, but I have lost respect. Check out his websites -- all about how we can become better human beings living on a better planet. Yeah, riiiiiight. It's entirely possible McCarthy did this for publicity, but the stark reality of it stills sucks (for the kid).

He is by no means expected, nor may it even be appropriate, for him to keep a relationship with Evan. 5 Years is not a long time. At all. Now, if it was a 15 or 20 year marriage, that may be different. The healthiest thing for the boy is to have past "boyfriends" fade away until, if ever, Jenny takes on a permanent relationship. Every child, but especially an autistic one, needs permanentness and continuity. The kid can get that from a male relative or lifelong family friend. If something didn't work out, move on. Otherwise, it is probably just very confusing for the kid.

Jenny is a selfish beatch, as usual, using her son for her own manipulations. When you come into a relationship, you bring your children with you. When you end a relationship, you take your children with you. Evan has a natural father that should be fathering that child.

I bet she thought that if she said this she would get all kinds of people backing her up. It backfired for sure. Jim is not the father of this kid. If she wanted Jim to come and see the kid she should grow balls and ask him to come over and see him. She is causing drama for her new show and its pathetic.

Jenny McCarthy is a worthless *** dumpster. What makes her think that Jim Carrey has any obligation to her son?

She is a clueless ho!

He just doesn't want any communicable diseases, so he won't come to visit until the kid is fully vaccinated.

Though Jenny McCarthy is a hometown Chicago Southside girl, and I will always hold her in esteem for that, I must say that it still was in poor form to discuss the status of Evan's relationship with Jim Carey. Though it is totally understandable that a parent, especially a single parent and particularly a single parent of a special needs child, it does not justify public airing of details pertaining to Evan's relationships, whether a relationship is with an adult or with another child, or ongoing, failing or past. In other words, Jenny made a decision to compromise HER privacy as a consequence of HER celebrity, but young Evan did not sign up for the same. Though it is probable that this incident will not promote a reunion between Carey and Evan, since it appears that hard feelings, which may have previously resided below surface, have since come to surface (It happens to the best of us.), I still hope that cool heads and warm hearts will prevail for Evan's sake ... at very least to model how a mature adult would cope with another who has wronged him or her. Then again, considering that Jenny has recently been dating Chicago Bears linebacker, Brian Urlacher, maybe she intended to promote a divide to make her split with Carey final. It is unfortunate for Evan any way one could cut it. May God bless Evan and help him through this in ways that will be obvious and a source of comfort to him.

Sorry, Jenny, but mothers march in and out of the lives of men who are not their kids' father TOGETHER. If you wanted Jim in your kid's life you should have worked it out.

I could only imagine the experience of being in a relationship with someone who has a autistic child, as not being easy. So what if it is true, he dealt with it this long, while many others would've walk away in a heart beat.

Move on Jenny!
