Oh, this situation just highlights how tough it is for single parents to date! Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey dated for five years, so of course Jim got to know Jenny’s autistic son, Evan. Although the couple split two years ago, Jenny says Evan still asks about Jim “almost weekly.”
“I’ve tried to ask Jim numerous times [to see Evan], because my son still asks. I haven’t [reached out directly] . . . I think that sometimes people need to take a real break from each other. But I still love him. I think you can love people from a distance and respect him. But as a mother, you just hope when you have a relationship with someone, it has nothing to do with the child when you break up.”
The problem here, of course, is that Jim isn’t Evan’s father. Jenny says Evan watches Jim’s movies.
“I tell [Evan] that someday you’ll cross paths, meet again. . . [but] it’s hard. He’s been in therapy. It’s a process, he’s working on it.”
This is so sad.
