Jim Carrey / Jenny McCarthy
The five-year relationship between Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy is over. The couple announced they have split.
“Jim and Jenny have recently decided to end their five-year relationship”, Carrey’s representative Marleah Leslie told People. “I’m so grateful for the years Jim and I shared together. I will continue to be in his daughter’s life and will always keep Jim as a leading man in my heart”, McCarthy said in one statement.
In response, Jim Carrey wrote on his Twitter page: “I’m grateful 4 the many blessings we’ve shared and I wish her the very best! S’okay!”
We can’t pretend this doesn’t come as a surprise though! 37 years old McCarthy and 48 years old Carrey seemed to be one of the happiest couple in Hollywood. Recently they shared the experience of becoming grandparents, when Jim’s daughter Jane, gave birth to a son in February.
“Jenny is the first person that I’ve been with where I don’t have a giant question mark over my head”, Carrey told People back in February. “He taught me how to love. And without Evan I might never have seen the greatness of Jenny’s spirit”, he also said about Jenny’s son, who has Autism.
Last September, the couple even made one commitment to each other in what was a non-formal wedding.
