Jenny McCarthy’s son misses Jim Carrey

Jenny McCarthy

Jenny McCarthy is desperate for Jim Carrey to visit her son.
The 39-year-old beauty says her former partner, who she split from in 2010 after five years of dating, hasn't seen 10-year-old Evan - who suffers from autism - since they broke up, despite the youngster telling her he misses the actor "almost weekly".
She said: "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."
Jenny - who admitted Evan often watches Jim's movies - says it has been "hard" helping the youngster coming to terms with the 51-year-old funnyman no longer being in their lives and has sought therapy to help him.
She added on the 'Howard Stern Show': "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."
Despite her sadness over Evan's upset, Jenny - who had the youngster with former husband John Mallory Asher - insists she made the right decision.
The Playboy model - who is now dating NFL player Brian Urlacher - said: "As you get older you kind of get to see things more clearly.
"Hopefully you get happier [over time], and I am so much happier."

    I am dealing with the same issue. My ex wants me to play pseudo father to her son (who I adore) while she does whatever (and whomever) she wants.

    Move on Jenny. Live with your choices and quit using your child’s affection for your previous partner garnish you publicity.

    Do you think it would be easier for Jim to move on with his life with or without constant interactions with your and your son? I know it sucked, and sucks, for me that I can’t help raise my ex’s son (a great kid stuck in a sad situation).

    Sometimes people….life isn’t easy or fun. Sometimes it just plain hurts.

    Agree with you Hugh. Not fair for her to go after Jim publicly trying to pressure him into doing what she’d like. She made the choice to end it with him and that means he has every right to move on, as do you. I for one wouldn’t want to spend any time around a woman that broke it off with me, regardless of the reason.

    Single mom’s take note…when you’re getting in a relationship, the kid becomes a part of that equation. She should have stayed with Jim if she loves him and if her son loves him. She decided against that, so tough for her.

    I love that she’s desperate, but hasn’t reached out to him directly. Huh?
