Jim Carrey Says He Still Loves Jenny McCarthy's Son, Evan

Jim Carrey

I think there are some issues Jenny McCarthy might want to work out here.

After proclaiming that her 10-year-old autistic son Evan goes to therapy because he misses his relationship with Jenny’s ex-boyfriend, Jim Carrey, the funny man is setting a few things straight. Jenny told Howard Stern on his talk show that while she’s tried to reach out to Jim through different channels, her son still asks about him on a weekly basis and pretty much misses the close relationship he used to have with him. Now Jim is speaking out about this, telling Us Weekly:

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

A source close to Jim even adds:

“[Jenny] never reached out directly to him, so that’s a bit of a stretch for her to say,” the source tells Us. Still, the insider admits “Sometimes it’s really too painful to still be involved with an ex’s child’s life, but it doesn’t mean he doesn’t care about [Evan] or love him.”

Now, was it really worth it for Jenny to humiliate Jim like this? Surely there’s more to the story than we know.
