After five years together, Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy have split. The 48-year-old comedian took to twitter to tell his fans, but insisted the split was amicable. He wrote: “Jenny and I have just ended our 5yr relationship. I’m grateful for the many blessings we’ve shared and I wish her the very best. S’okay! Be of good cheer folks! It’s a beautiful world, and we’re all gonna get what we need the most!” Jenny also took to twitter, saying: “I’m so grateful for the years Jim and I had together. I will stay committed to [Jim’s adult daughter] Jane and will always keep Jim as a leading man in my heart.” Just last month the former Playboy bunny claimed she would marry Jim, but only for tax reasons. She said: “We say ‘never’, but I don’t know. Maybe for tax purposes, someday, when we are old. That’s why we keep joking — like, when we are 70! But for now, we’re fine.” Jim has been married twice before and Jenny was previously married to actor/director John Mallory Asher in 1999, with whom she has a seven-year-old son.
